Watching modern family or friends without subtitles removes the humor and fun from the Tv series.

Hence why Netflix knew there’s no chill in movies without subtitles.

Thank you, Netflix.

To add subtitles to a video is like icing a cake, glamorous.

Most times we watch that boring video only because the subtitles make it easier to watch.

To add subtitles to a video is like creating your own movie.

Although not so yesterday, captions that could also substitute as subtitles are now directly used in videos rather than under the timeline of the video.

Subtitles are prominently used by vloggers to explain a missed point or for vlog influencers, to promote a brand or a product.

Although most social media platforms such as TikTok and Instagram have a subtitle function, there is a cool third-party application that beautifully writes out your text on a video.

Now, for elegant subtitles on a video, there are essentials to be considered like the font style, the font color, and the font effect.

An example of a third-party application with these subtitle essentials is FilmoraGo.
