Google has introduced a transcription feature for its YouTube app that will provide a transcript of any video on the app. Till now, this feature was available on the YouTube desktop site, where users could easily watch the full transcription of the video they are planning to upload.
Once the video is uploaded to the website, all you need to do is tap on the “Show Transcript” button below the extension of the video and view the transcript of the video. The UI in the app is also almost the same as that of the desktop.
This feature is a server-side update, so if you don’t have the feature yet, you’ll have to wait to get it. This feature was first reported by Android Police, According to the report, mobile app users can scroll through the transcript while watching the video. They can read along to a video or go straight to the timecode with this feature.

The purpose of this feature is to make it easier for users to see if someone is live-streaming while browsing the channel.
