Google’s YouTube app now features a transcription tool that can deliver a transcript of any video on the app. The capability was previously only available on the YouTube desktop site, where users could quickly see the complete transcription of the video they wanted to post.
Once the video has been uploaded to the internet, simply click the “Show Transcript” button below the video’s expansion to view the transcript. The app’s user interface is likewise very similar to that of the desktop version.
Because the feature is a server-side upgrade, you’ll have to wait to get it if you don’t already have it. Android Police was the first to notice the functionality. According to the report, users of the smartphone app can scroll through the transcript while watching the video. This feature allows them to read along with a video or jump straight to a timecode.
