Google Pixel users get text-to-speech update during calls and more

On 7 October 2022, Google announced a new Live Caption during calls, custom stickers, night photography on Snapchat, a YouTube watch party in Duo, and more for Pixel users.

The new Live Caption feature lets users type during calls and allow Google’s software to read out the text to other people. And to make it more useful, it can be accessed during calls when one user taps on the volume button.
