Microsoft Teams: Closed captions in the Walkie Talkie app

Microsoft Teams is introducing live closed captions for the Walkie Talkie app, aiding frontline workers in noisy environments. This feature will be available in June 2024, with real-time voice-to-text captions in selected languages, displayed on the Walkie Talkie app’s home screen. Admins cannot disable this feature. Users should be informed to prepare for this update. Coming soon to Microsoft Teams: In a busy frontline work environment, it can be challenging to hear Walkie Talkie transmissions. To address this, we’re launching live closed captions for any audible transmission in the Walkie Talkie app in Teams. This message applies to Teams Mobile (iOS, Android).
