Google is working to introduce automatic captions to the desktop version of Chrome, and the beta version of Chrome released in 2020 secretly included the desktop version of automatic captions. However, the beta version of the automatic captioning feature is only experimental, and some bugs have been seen, so Android Central, which handles Android-related news, said: “The official launch of the automatic captioning feature carries time, probably after the second half of 2020. “
