Giphy’s New App Will Automatically Convert Audio from Your Clips to Text Captions

April 12, 2017, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Giphy, one of world’s largest stash of GIFs, has come up with a new app that lets you skip the process of adding captions to your captured GIFs. In other words, the app simply captures the audio in your recorded video and turns them to text by itself, creating more like a subtitled GIF.

Says, the new app from Giphy, is currently exclusive to iOS. That’s because it makes use of Apple’s Siri voice recognition technology to get the audio converted to text. However, Giphy is also planning to launch the app for Android at a sooner point.

Users can get their GIF created by simply shooting a short video through the app. The audio that comes along will automatically be transformed to text, and the app does quite well with this job. Giphy Says was able to capture even feeble sounds in louder environments.

The captured audio will appear as subtitles in the GIF, and these can also be fine-tuned to suit your tastes. A row of styles are available from which users can select the desired, and this will alter the manner in which the texts appear in the GIF. These text filters can be selected by simply swiping across the screen. The list of options also includes, but not limited to, comic strip dialogue boxes and screen-filling options.

Once the GIFs are created, users can share them through iMessage, Facebook Messenger or upload them to Instagram. They can also be saved to your camera roll in case you prefer to keep it with yourself. The app is available for free download now in the App Store.
