The latest OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro phones come with Live Caption feature. It was first introduced during Google I/O 2019. The search giant unveiled the Live Caption feature for those with hearing disabilities. It is a great feature and works really well. In case you are unaware, it can automatically transcribe and display captions of any spoken audio playing on the phone. The OnePlus 8 series users can use this feature on videos, podcasts, and audio messages. Also Read - OnePlus 9 series under development with codename Lemonade, hints tipster

You don’t need to do anything and it automatically jumps in and disappears after the job is done. After enabling the feature in the settings section, you can even turn it off quickly in case you are annoyed of seeing it everywhere. You just need to press the volume key and tap the caption button located at the bottom of the volume control bar.
