Presently, Google Meet is limiting its live transcription feature only to English. This means speakers in English will be able to switch on the live transcription feature during a Google Meet. Plus, this will be translated into Spanish, Portuguese, French, and German. There are still a few limitations to the beta testing of live transcriptions on Google Meet.

For one, the new feature is going to be available for meetings organized by users of Google Workspace Business Plus, Enterprise Standard, Enterprise Plus, Education Plus, and Teaching & Learning Upgrade.

"Translated captions helps Google Meet video calls to be more global, inclusive, and effective by removing language ability as a barrier to collaboration. By helping users consume the content in a preferred language, you can help equalize information sharing, learning, and collaboration, and make sure your meetings are as effective as possible," Google said in a statement.
