Twitter has introduced new video subtitles for its tweets, which will play automatically on a muted smartphone device and may also be toggled to stay on even when the sound is cranked up. The functionality is now being rolled out for both the Android and iOS platforms, with no special considerations or first OS to acquire the part.
Twitter Subtitles Automatically On for Muted Videos on Android, iOS
Video captions and subtitles are now available on Twitter’s social media platform, with an emphasis on its automated toggle when the smartphone device is muted or has no audio. This function is now available for both the Android and iOS platforms, which means that all smartphone users may enjoy it right away.
It is vital to remember that the subtitles will play automatically and turn off when the volume is increased if the app’s default setting is retained. Twitter Support initially teased this functionality for the platform in July of this year, previewing the captions for voice tweets to have subtitles when automatically pushed to the feed.

Features of the Twitter App
