Android’s real-time captioning function, Stay Caption, might be coming to Google’s Chrome browser on computer systems and to Chrome OS, as spotted by TechDows (via 9to5Google). Within the newest Canary launch of Chrome, there’s a method to entry a brand new “Stay Caption” toggle within the browser’s accessibility settings.

Nonetheless, in a couple of minutes of testing, I wasn’t capable of get Stay Captions to work in any respect. I switched the Stay Caption toggle on, however every time I navigated to YouTube or Twitch to see captions on a video, the browser instantly crashed. That’s not too shocking, although — Canary is Google’s updated-nightly model of Chrome supposed just for builders, and the corporate even warns that the browser “might be unstable.”

If you wish to attempt to check Stay Caption on Chrome for your self, although, right here’s what it is advisable to do:

  1. Obtain the latest version of Chrome Canary.
  2. Open it up and enter chrome://flags within the tackle bar.
  3. On the Flags web page, scroll right down to “Stay Captions” and click on the drop-down, and choose “Enabled.”
  4. Then go to Chrome’s settings menu, kind “accessibility” into the settings search bar, and click on the toggle within the Stay Caption merchandise that seems.

If you wish to strive a secure model of Stay Caption, the function is out there now in Android 10 on Pixel 4, 3A, 3, and a couple of telephones, in addition to “chosen different Android telephones,” according to Google. My colleague Dieter Bohn was impressed with Stay Caption when he obtained to strive it out final yr, and you will get an thought of the way it works on Android telephones on this promotional video from Google.
