Twitter brings ‘closed’ caption

Twitter announced that it is rolling out a button to toggle captions for its video player on its iOS and Android applications.

If a video has captions available, the button will be visible on the top-right corner of the video and will let users choose whether they want to see captions for the video or not quickly.

Twitter was reportedly testing the feature in April, but at the time, it was only available to a limited number of iOS users.

Until now, closed captions showed up on Twitter videos on your mobile phone depending on many factors including whether you have turned it on in your phone’s accessibility settings and whether you are watching a video with your sound off. While that is still the case, you can now easily control caption.
