Instagram Captions Sticker
The Instagram captions sticker is surely going to help people who have hearing problems while listening to a video on Instagram stories. After adding the caption sticker to Instagram stories, users will get a message of transcribing audio and after that, the caption will appear on the screen. Additionally, The caption sticker is going to create new possibilities for experimenting with content for the creators on the platform.
An almost similar feature was added to the Threads app by Instagram in November 2020. The feature allowed users to add captions to their videos. However, the app itself failed to gain popularity. It is expected that Instagram has added the same caption generating feature. If that is true, then you should know it will automatically censor out the abusive and explicit words.
