How to Enable Google Live Caption Feature on Android 10

Google Pixel devices always come with some Pixel exclusive features which you don't get on other Android smartphones. The Pixel 4 this year launched with a bunch of those exclusive features including an almost magical feature called “Live Caption.” This feature adds a live caption to all the audio and video playing on your phone.

The best part is that this feature does not need a data connection to work, it runs entirely on the AI engine of the chipset. The feature is really great if you need to watch a video with low sound. It also works on podcasts and you get the live caption on your phone while listening to a podcast from any app.

Here we have a set of instructions to tell you about how you can enable this feature on your phone running Android 10 OS.


Steps to Enable the Live Caption feature on Android 10 devices

  2. Open Magisk and install the “SQLite for ARM aarch64 devices” from the download section.
  3. Reboot your smartphone.
  4. Now, install the “LiveCaption_Pixel” magisk Module in Magisk manager if you have pixel device otherwise install the “LiveCaption_nonPixel” module.
  5. Reboot your smartphone.
  6. After reboot, you should be able to see the Live caption option inside the Sound Settings or Accessibility settings.
