Google had already announced the real-time translated subtitles for the end of 2021. In the next 14 days Google is rolling out simultaneous interpretation for Meet. These are then available for Google Workspace Business Plus, Enterprise Standard, Enterprise Plus and other offers in the mobile version and for the desktop.

Google’s automatic subtitles can be activated via the “CC” (English for Closed Captioning) button. At the end of 2021, Google added more languages. As with the live translations, you can click or touch the respective lettering to choose from German, French, Portuguese and Spanish.
