Otter can now transcribe your Google Meet chats in real time

With a new Chrome extension, the transcription service works with Google's video chat platform.

Transcription service Otter has launched a Chrome extension that will allow groups of co-workers to keep automatic notes on meetings through Google Chat. Otter already offers a similar service for Zoom.

Google Chat already has a live captioning feature, but Otter's big draw is its editable transcript that the whole team can access and alter during and after the meeting, making it a more flexible collaborative tool.

This new feature will likely prove useful for improving accessibility as workforces continue to adapt to the challenges of remote work -- and it could make conducting meetings easier as interruptions at home (like a sick child or hungry pet) require participants to step away from their screens.
