Instagram adds captions for Stories


07 May 2021

Instagram has added a new captions sticker to Stories that will allow users to watch without having the sound on. The sticker was available only in IGTV and the Threads app but now is available also to Stories and soon to Reels.

The new captions sticker will automatically transcribe speech in videos and users could edit the text displayed in the Stories based on the style and color they desire, while at the same could even edit words if they find any spelling or punctuation mistakes.

Unfortunately, the captions sticker is only available in “English and English-speaking countries” for the time being. However, according to Instagram, captions will be soon available to other languages and countries.
