Turn subtitles on and off on Instagram

Instagram now has auto-generated captions, meaning it can automatically transcribe any videos you watch in the app. But before you see captions appear in the app, you’ll probably need to enable the feature first, and the same is true if you want to post captioned videos.

Before we begin, it’s worth noting that auto-generated captions are available in 17 languages ​​at the time of writing: English, Spanish, Portuguese, French, Arabic, Vietnamese, Italian, German, Turkish, Russian, Thai, Tagalog, Urdu, Malay, Hindi, Indonesian and Japanese. Instagram plans to add support for more languages ​​in the future.

Here’s how to turn subtitles on and off on Instagram for iPhone and Android, whether you just want to watch videos with subtitles or post a video with subtitles.

Turn subtitles on/off for all videos in your feed

Instagram’s auto-generated captions are disabled by default. If you want to enable captions for every video that appears in your feed, you only need to adjust one setting. You can repeat these steps to turn off subtitles.

  • Tap your profile in the lower right corner of the screen.
  • Select the hamburger menu in the top right corner of the screen, then select Settings
  • Go to Account > Captionsand then switch the Captions option on. You can use the Captions option back if you want to turn them off.

Choose “Captions” in your account settings.

Turn “Captions” on or off.

Enable subtitles for one video

If you don’t want captions for every video you see, you can choose to enable captions for just one video. Here’s how to do it:

  • Tap the three dots in the top right corner of a video.
  • If the video supports subtitles, you will see an option that says Manage Subtitles
  • Turn on the Captions option.

Select ‘Manage Subtitles’

Enable or disable the “Captions” option.

Post a captioned video

The auto-generated Instagram feature is also useful for creators as it means you no longer have to transcribe your videos and then add caption overlays. Follow these steps to turn captions on or off when creating your post:

  • Start by uploading a video from your gallery or create one on Instagram.
  • When you’re done applying any edits, select Advanced Settings from the menu that appears before you post your video.
  • below Accessibilityswitch the Show captions option on or off.

Select ‘Advanced Settings’.

Turn “Show captions” on or off.

If you forgot to turn on captions before posting a video, you can always do that.

  • Tap the three dots that appear in the top right corner of your video, then tap edit
  • Select on Android Delete captions to turn them off. On an iPhone, press Advanced settings and then switch the Show captions option on or off.
