Pichai also talked about how Google is working to improve captioning. He gave the example of a person with hearing issues tuning into a show that has people talking over each other-- the captioning doesn't always keep up. 's efforts would have one person talk at a time and show the text of what they said separately, instead of jumbled together.
"We can make day-to-day use cases much easier for people," Pichai said.
