There’s a lot of changes going around your favorite social media platforms recently and those changes are not stopping any time soon.
Instagram is making its video Stories and Reels more accessible with the launch of a new “captions sticker” that will allow users to watch without having the sound on. The addition will not only make it easier for users who are hard of hearing or deaf to engage with video content, it also offers a way for users to watch videos when they’re somewhere they don’t want to have their sound on — and either don’t want to wear or don’t have access to headphones or earbuds.
To use the feature, creators will first record a new video using the Stories or Reels Camera in the Instagram app, or select a video to upload from their phone’s gallery. Then, you’ll open the sticker tray and look for the new “Captions” sticker, which will convert your speech to text. You also can edit the style, position of the caption and the text and color so it matches your content. When you post, the captions will appear alongside your video for everyone to see.
You can now add Captions While Uploading and Editing Videos. Here is the Youtube video that they put out on how to do this. CLICK HERE
Twitter Inc said it will introduce a new feature to let users charge admission to their live audio chat rooms in its “Spaces” feature, as the social media company seeks to court more content creators.
Until now, only some users who were part of Twitter’s pilot testing were able to host their own Space. Starting now, any user with at least 600 followers can be a host.
Twitter introduced Spaces last year to compete with viral app Clubhouse, which jump-started the audio chat trend and attracted celebrities and entrepreneurs, but remains limited as an invite-only app.
