Twitter has announced that it is testing a ‘CC’ option that will let users turn video captions on or off. This feature is currently rolling out to some iOS users and will be available for android users soon.
In December 2021, Twitter announced the rollout of automatic captions, available on the web, iOS, and Android in over 30 languages, including English, Hindi, Spanish, Japanese, Arabic, Thai, Chinese and more.
“Where are video captions when you need them? They are here now automatically on videos uploaded starting today. Android and iOS: auto-captions will show on muted Tweet videos; keep them on when unmuted via your device’s accessibility settings. Web: use the “CC” button to turn on/off,” the company had said in a tweet.
Also, the captions will be available for newly uploaded videos, meaning that videos uploaded earlier will not get automatic captions.
