In this tutorial, we will learn how to turn off Live Caption on Android. Live Caption is a feature that automatically captions media playing on your device, making it accessible for individuals with hearing difficulties.

However, if you find this feature unnecessary or want to conserve battery life, you can easily disable it. Follow the steps below to turn off Live Caption on your Android device.

Step 1: Open Settings

To begin, unlock your Android device and navigate to the Settings app. You can usually find this app on your home screen or in the app drawer.

Step 2: Access Accessibility Settings

In the Settings menu, scroll down and tap on the Accessibility option. This section contains various accessibility features that enhance usability for individuals with disabilities.

Step 3: Find Live Caption

In the Accessibility settings, scroll down until you find the Caption category. Tap on it to access further caption-related options.


If you have a newer version of Android (Android 10 or later), you might find the Live Caption option directly in the main Accessibility settings without navigating through subcategories.

Step 4: Disable Live Caption

In the Caption settings, locate and toggle off the Live Caption switch. Once disabled, Live Caption will no longer automatically caption media playing on your device.


The steps mentioned above may vary slightly depending on your Android device’s manufacturer and operating system version. However, they should provide a general guideline for turning off Live Caption.

With Live Caption disabled, you can now enjoy your media without the captions. This not only conserves battery life but also ensures a distraction-free viewing experience.

Remember, if you ever wish to re-enable Live Caption, simply follow the same steps and toggle on the Live Caption switch in the Accessibility settings.

We hope this tutorial has been helpful in guiding you through the process of turning off Live Caption on your Android device. If you have any further questions or need assistance, feel free to reach out to us.
