Live Caption, on the other hand, is a new version of Live Transcribe designed for videos. As it seems, you can add captions to any video which makes them more accessible. In addition, the company is also looking into Live Captions which work with phone calls as well. This will ultimately aid people with hearing problems.

Live Relay is similar to Live Caption which works with Smart Reply and text. The text will be dictated by the Google Assistant voice and everything would be done on the device itself. Google is extensively working on voice recognition technology. The company is also announcing the new Pixel devices, so do stick around for that as well.
