In December 2021, the microblogging site announced the introduction of automatic video captions. Automatic captions have reportedly been available on the web, iOS and Android in more than 30 languages, including English, Hindi, Spanish, Japanese, Arabic, Thai, Chinese and more.

“Where are the video captions when you need them? They are now here automatically for videos uploaded starting today. Android and iOS: auto-captions appear on muted Tweet videos; leave them on when you turn off the sound through your device’s accessibility settings. Web: Use the “CC” button to turn on / off, “the company said in a tweet.

Captions will only be added to new videos, which means that videos that have already been uploaded to a social network will not receive automatic captions, the report said.
