Are you a Google Meet user? Platform will automatically transcribe meetings for you
For now, this in-built option is available only in English. Support for French, German, Spanish and Portuguese will be enabled sometime in 2023.
Google has come up with a new feature for Google Meet, a video-communication service developed by the tech giant. The feature will automatically record and transcribe the discussion, and thus ensure that users do not miss out any important information that was provided during the session.
Here are the key features of this automatic meeting transcription facility:
(1.) The option is in-built, which means that you are no longer dependent on third-party apps to transcribe the call. Here, you can find the recorded file in the host's ‘Meet Recordings’ folder in Google Drive.
(2.) For sessions involving 200 participants or less, the link to the transcribed document is received by the host, co-hosts, and those who initiated the transcription. The link is sent on on email.
(3.) Meanwhile, for sessions in which more than 200 attendees are present, the link is received by the organisers, host, co-hosts, as well as individual users.
(4.) The option is switched on by default. Prior to the meeting, attendees will see a notification informing them that the meeting transcripts are active.
(5.) For now, this service is available only in English. Support for French, German, Spanish and Portuguese will be enabled next year.
