How To Turn Off Captions In Twitch

Twitch is the ultimate social network for gamers. There you will find gamers streaming content of any game that you could ever imagine. For example, you can watch people playing Apex, Fortnite, Call of Duty, Grand Theft Auto, or Minecraft. You just need to follow or subscribe to a channel, and that is all! You will get a notification every time that the owner is streaming, or if he/she uploaded new content. Twitch also streams game tournaments and other game-related events. 


It is a great, and fun way to keep updated with the latest news of the gaming community or learn all sorts of things about your favorite game. You can watch the stream live, and talk with the other viewers. Or you can wait later that day to watch it. 

All videos released from Twitch itself and some other videos from streamers have the option to add captions on the screen. This feature allows Twitch users to read the conversation, or what is being said, during the stream. You may be asking, why I would ever want to read a video streaming? The answer is simple, maybe you have some sort of hearing impairment, and you need a little help to keep at speed. Maybe English is not your first language, and you don’t want to miss anything. Or you could be at a boring lecture at school, and you don’t want anyone to find out that you are watching Twitch. 

You don’t need to worry about a thing; captions are made with the exact same information that the speaker gives. Therefore, everything that is being said will appear before you on the screen. If you have some trouble reading them, you can change the font color, size, and even its placement on the screen. However, the moment that you grow tired of captions may come someday. So it is important to know how to disable them when they are no longer needed.

The process is very simple, especially if you are using the Twitch desktop app or you are using it from the browser. However, if you are using the app, the process is a little longer. Bear in mind that closed captions are only available on certain videos. 

Step A

While you are watching the stream, head to the bottom right corner. Click on the CC icon, which is next to the gear icon. As you click it, the closed caption will cease to appear on the screen. 

Step B

Step 1

If you have an Android device head to the settings option. Once there choose the accessibility option.

In iOS, the process is similar; head to settings and click on general settings. Then choose the accessibility option.

Step 2

Choose the caption option, which is almost at the end of both OS and click it.

On iOS

Step 3

Choose the disable option and that’s all. For Android, it is at the top right side. 

On iOS.

If you ever want to turn them on again, you have to follow the same process. Just that this time, you must do it backwards.
