The upcoming Google Pixel smartphones — Pixel 4 and 4 XL — would feature ‘Live Caption’ that transcribes audio into subtitles and puts them on the screen.

The Live Caption feature is similar to Live Transcribe. But, Live Transcribe listens to what people around are saying and prints it out on a phone’s display. While Live Caption processes the audio from videos, podcasts and other sources to provide you with real-time captions, news portal Techradar reported on Tuesday.

Pixel 4 and 4 XL, would also feature a new Motion Sense Mode, and it would work with nine applications that have been whitelisted as Supported Apps.

Motion Sense on Google Pixel 4 is powered by Project Soli, which uses radar technology to detect hand gestures.
