Google's Live Action Caption Feature Is Rolling out the Pixel 4 at Launch

By Shabana Arif on at

Google's live caption feature is coming soon, exclusively on Pixel 4.

Live caption was first revealed at Google I/O earlier this year, and adds captions to any video in real-time. The tool is finally rolling out next week with the launch of the Pixel 4 and despite being lauded as a great accessibility tool for Android 10, it'll be exclusive to the Pixel 4 until December, when it'll roll out to the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3a.

That means that the Pixel 2 is being left by the wayside, although it's not clear what the reason is. XDA Developers managed to get it working on a Pixel 2 XL so the smartphone seems t be capable enough to run it.

Google hasn't confirmed whether live caption will be making its way to other Android phones, but it'll probably make its way over eventually.

The Pixel 4 and 4 XL were officially revealed at Made by Google yesterday and is available to pre-order ahead of its October 24 launch. What's more, if you pre-order between now and October 28, you'll get a free HP Chromebook 14, so get a wriggle on. [Android Police]
