However, there could be times when you do not want the audio of any video, mainly if you forget your earphones and cannot resist watching the video. This is a feature called Live caption. It is in every android smartphone. You have to go to the settings, go to accessibility and then click on hearing enhancements and finally enable the live captions option. Once you do this, the videos would be played without audio, and the live captions are displayed on the screen. Interesting, right?
