Voice typing and automatic captions are now available on Apple Safari and Microsoft Edge

As of now, users can only edit their documents in Google Docs or speaker notes in Google Slides through Voice commands and only if they are accessing the latest version of Chrome. Now, Google has started rolling out voice typing to Apple Safari and Microsoft Edge, allowing users to type using voice commands. The Automatic Captions feature is also arriving in Safari and Edge.

Meanwhile, when a user enables the voice typing or automatic captions option, the web browser will have control over the Speech-to-text service; it determines how the speech is being processed and further sends the text data based on the dictation to Google Docs and Google Slides. 

Moreover, Google is rolling out Voice typing and Automatic captions to all Google Workspace customers, Individual subscribers, and users with personal Google accounts.
