Instagram is adding auto-generated captions to videos. Adam Mosseri (Instagram Head) on Tuesday said that the captions have been ‘A long time coming’.
Users will have the option of turning them on or off.
Creators have had to manually add captions to their videos before this. This will help Instagram users who prefer watching videos with the sound off. Deaf people will also benefit from this feature.
The captions will be available in select languages.
