Captions for Mac

Captions on your Mac

Updated over a week ago

The Mac app is currently available in "Open Beta." A few important things to know:

  • Sign In - Sign in with Google or Apple (we don't support phone login at this time).

  • Updates - We'll be releasing updates weekly and you'll be notified in-app of updates whenever a new version is available.

  • Pricing - While you'll need to sign in, we won't be checking for a subscription. This means that the app is free and will continue to be free while in beta. Once the app is out of beta, you will be able to use a single paid subscription for all platforms.

Will you be adding "X" feature that exists on iPhone?

Most likely, yes! As this is a beta, we're rolling out new updates constantly. We're building the core features and will continue to add the features you love on iPhone.
