Edge will translate YouTube videos in real time

Microsoft continues to insist that its users use Edge and forget about Chrome once and for all, which is, today, the number one option worldwide. Therefore, to convince them, they are busy providing their browser with new and practical functions. One of them is this: Edge will translate YouTube videos in real time.

Naturally, this is not the only argument that Microsoft uses to enhance Edge. Its entire ecosystem is witnessing a revolution thanks to Artificial Intelligence and the development of other technologies. A huge leap forward. And the improvements to the browser promise to be especially interesting.

Along with other improvements, it draws attention the new real-time translation capacity for YouTube videos. This functionality, which will soon be available to all browser users, was presented at a special event held in the United States last week. And we show it to you here.

This is how the translation of YouTube videos in real time works

The operation of this new tool integrated into Edge is very simple. Actually, all you have to do is click on a button that appears right next to the video, as long as the platform where the video is hosted supports the real-time translation function.

The live demonstration by Microsoft officials was carried out with a LinkedIn video (see the video above), although what everyone expected to hear is that it would also work with YouTube. It seems that yes, there will be no problems with that.

How It Works This functionality has been developed with live broadcasts in mind, of course. The video explains very well how to use it. First you have to open the video, click on the translation button, select the source and destination languages. And then, wham! In a moment the magic is done. Right before our eyes.

As you can already guess, behind this prodigy is Artificial Intelligence. Thanks to it, this instant, live translation with an almost perfect degree of precision will be possible in any language in the world. It is simply one of the many wonders that AI will bring to our lives. We are at the beginning of a new era.

When will this feature be available?

For now, all we have seen are very promising demonstrations and possibilities. Another thing is the reality of day to day life. Everything indicates that We will have to wait a little longer for the integration to be complete and that all Edge browser users can benefit from it.

To mention a reasonable period of time, we could say that it is a matter of months. Hopefully we'll see Edge translate YouTube videos in real time before the year is out.

It is also very possible that in its early stages it will only be possible to carry out this translation in a few languages, perhaps the most important, although the idea is to reach everyone. And although the demonstration we have seen speaks very well of the potential of AI, Hopefully for some time all processes will be controlled by humans. Something necessary to detect and correct possible errors and make this an even more precise tool.

Other Edge news for this year


Real-time translation of YouTube videos with Edge is just one of the many new features that the Edge update for Spring 2024 has brought us. There are many other improvements worth highlighting, which have also been presented to the public at last week's event.

Above all of them, the one that has managed to dazzle the representatives of the specialized press, has undoubtedly been the new Windows assistant, named Recall (Memories). It is an AI-powered assistant that is capable of remembering anything the user has seen or done with your PC. A function that makes it easier to search and retrieve any type of information.

Recall, which Windows has assigned internally AI Explorer, has the signs of reaching become an essential tool for most Edge users. Although that is something we will only know with time.

Finally, it must be said that, in addition to this, the Microsoft event also served as a showcase for the presentation of its latest models of its new Surface line laptops with integrated AI, specifically the Surface Laptop and the Surface Pro. A good testing ground to test the new Edge with its new weapons.
