Google Meet adds 52 new languages to translated captions and 11 more languages for closed captions

For all Google Workspace customers and users with personal accounts, we’ve expanded support for closed captioning to include the following languages in beta*, bringing the total language count to 87:
  • Azerbaijani
  • Czech
  • Greek
  • Icelandic
  • Kazakh
  • Lao
  • Lithuanian
  • Malay
  • Serbian

*Newly supported languages are denoted with a “beta” tag as we continue to optimize performance.

For Gemini for Google Workspace customers, we are adding 52 languages to translated captions with full language support, which means these languages can be translated to and from any other fully supported language. We are also launching full language support to 6 previously launched languages. Translated captions now fully support 69 languages which allows for over 4,600 language pairs:













-Chinese (Simplified)*

Chinese (Mandarin)*



































-Persian (Farsi)





















– Zulu



* Full language support previously launched
** Previously only English into these languages was supported. For more information, see our previous announcement on the Workspace Updates blog.


Additional details

Update on the availability of translated captions for some Google Workspace customers 
As we previously announced, translated captions in Google Meet will be exclusively available to Gemini for Google Workspace customers. This will go into effect starting January 22, 2025, when existing and new customers will no longer have access to translated captions through their Google Workspace subscription. At this time, translated captions will only be available in the following Gemini add-ons: Gemini Enterprise, AI Meetings and Messaging, and Gemini Education premium.
We will continue to invest in and improve translated captions with the additional languages and automatic language detection. In addition to translated captions, the Gemini for Workspace add-ons offer other generative AI features such as enhanced audio and image quality on meetings, take notes for me (in alpha), and more — use this link to learn more.
