OnePlus started its open-beta program for the OnePlus 7T series last week that brought Android 10’s Live Caption feature and now, the company is rolling out the second open beta for OnePlus 7T series and 11th open beta for OnePlus 7 series with Instant translation feature that was announced during the launch of the OnePlus 7T Pro last October.
Instant translation feature generates real-time subtitles during video calls. According to OnePlus, the feature supports five languages at launch namely English, French, German, Hindi, and Chinese.
As pointed out by XDA, the feature can be accessed from OnePlus Laboratory via Settings -> Utilities -> OnePlus Laboratory. Once you enable the toggle, a tile will appear in your quick settings from where you can quickly enable/disable the feature. You get the option to set your language and the other party’s language in Instant translation’s settings page. The feature even has a toggle that lets you disable subtitles for your speeches and translate the speeches just for the person at the other end.
