Otter lets you transcribe Google Meet calls



The AI-backed voice blogging service Otter.ai announced that its new addition to Google Chrome allows users to write Google Meet calls directly from the browser, and allows users to access live feedback and comments.

All the user needs is to install the chrome browser add-on, which opens the Live Notes dashboard during Google Meet calls to record what people say, and the panel appears on the side of the Google Meet interface and can be moved and scrolled through during the meeting.

The feature helps companies increase communication, especially for non-English speakers who may have difficulty understanding the spoken word, and provides an accessible way to interact with the live meeting content.

Users can view the live text of the meeting online when it occurs, and they can also adjust the size of the text, then save and share audio texts at the end of the meeting.

In addition, users can access the company's Live Captions feature that supports custom vocabulary.

This feature is very useful because after the meeting is over, you can take a look at the full text via the website or Otter app, and also search for keywords.

In addition, Otter also enables live notes and voice copies of Google Meet calls to more than 100 million Google Meet users.

These features are available to all Otter customers — basic, professional and commercial — starting now, and basic (free) users can copy up to 600 minutes of meetings per month.

Last April, the company launched a similar integration with Zoom, however, it was only available to paying customers.

"With our first integration in Zoom, we have seen that making Otter's use smoother increases note-taking and productivity for users, and we are excited to offer the same kind of seamless integration to Google Meet users," said Sam Liang, the company's founder, and CEO.

Otter boasts that its interactive and editable texts are a useful tool for collaboration at the end of a meeting, and it boasts that your slang during the discussion about your work won't neutralize artificial intelligence, since users can add keywords to the system.

The company says that tools like this make it easy to write meetings to avoid confusion later, and it helps people with accessibility requirements.
