What is the Audio Description on Android 13 and how to enable it?

    IMPORTANT: This article applies only to specific products and/or operating systems. Check Applicable Products and Categories for details.


    The Audio Description feature on Android 13 is an accessibility feature that allows you to hear an audio description of what's happening on-screen in supported movies and shows. 

    Not every app supports Audio Description (AD), and it will only become active where the TV program, movie or video includes an AD track. Unlike Android’s Close Caption features, it can’t generate the AD track automatically. 

    How to enable Audio Description

    1. Find and tap Settings and tap Accessibility
    2. Scroll down to the Audio section and tap the toggle switch for Audio Description
