At this year’s Build event, Microsoft unveiled a super cool, AI-powered feature that’s going to change how we watch videos online. You can now get real-time translations of the video content, either through dubbing or subtitles, right as you’re watching it. 

This fantastic feature currently supports translating Spanish into English and English into German, Hindi, Italian, Russian, and Spanish. So, no matter if you’re trying to learn a new language, watching content in your non-native tongue, or even just catching up on international news, this is going to make your life so much easier. 

Plus, it’s a big win for accessibility, helping out our friends who are deaf or hard of hearing.

This isn’t just for educational and social media platforms. Edge will also roll out real-time translation for videos on major news sites like Reuters, CNBC, and Bloomberg. Microsoft isn’t stopping there—they’re planning to add even more languages and supported websites soon. 

So, keep your eyes peeled for more updates.

And if you’re already a fan of Edge’s AI capabilities, you’ll love this addition to their lineup. Thanks to an integration with Copilot, Edge already offers nifty features like summarizing YouTube videos. However, it’s worth noting that the text summaries only work when a transcript is available.

Get ready to enjoy a world of videos in your language, brought to you by the magic of AI and Microsoft Edge.
