Jakarta (ANTARA) – Spotify announced the Voice Translation feature, voice translation, for podcasts broadcast on the audio streaming platform.
“By matching creators’ voices, Voice Translation gives listeners around the world the power to discover and be inspired by podcasters in a more authentic way,” said Spotify Deputy Director of Personalization Ziad Sultan, in a press release on Spotify’s official website, Monday (25/ 9) local time.
Spotify promises a more personal and natural podcast listening experience compared to dubbing through the voice translation feature they have developed.
