The Clubhouse app has become a household name in social media with its growing followers since its first launch. The audio-based social media platform gained the hearts and approval of millions of people worldwide due to its unique but realistic approach to building an online social community. Through various social chat rooms, you can meet new people and create more friends.
Joining the Clubhouse app offers a refreshing take on online social interaction. Since it is focused on audio, you can join discussions or listen to conversations. There are different rooms created that focus on specific topics for discussions.
While it offered an interesting way of socializing and learning, it may not be working well with some users, especially those with difficulty in hearing or when audio issues hit you. Now, Clubhouse is bringing a new upgrade that will cater to those who prefer to have a better understanding of the conversations through live text. The Clubhouse is adding live captions on its app that will bring real-time text transcriptions to its users.
How to Enable & Use Live Captions or Real-Time Text Transcriptions on the Clubhouse Social Audio App for iOS
Unfortunately, the live closed captioning tool on the Clubhouse audio mobile app is only available on iPhone as of the moment. Android users may not yet enjoy the added feature on the platform, but the social media company said that it is working on the update and it will be coming soon.
The Clubhouse app for iOS devices will feature 13 languages for a start using the real-time live transcription service. It will include Arabic, Cantonese, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin Chinese, Russian, Spanish, Turkish, and Yue Chinese. The Clubhouse will be adding more languages in the future.
The live captions will work based on automatic language detection. You may notice some flaws with it, especially when jumping from one room to another. But, Clubhouse engineers are tweaking it and making the tool a solid feature to reckon with.
