How to Turn off Subtitles on Disney+

I found the most interesting thing about Disney+ is that the app can be played on any TV or device(s) that is available for streaming. Marvel, Disney, Pixar and Star Wars movies are all available on Disney+.

Disney+ has a feature to enable subtitles to all the videos per profile. When the feature needs to be turned off, it can be done from the streaming video being played. 

The most used feature on the Disney+ is captioning settings. It provides a wider range of subtitling languages for streaming videos on the Disney+ app. Many times, the viewer does not know how to disable the subtitles on different devices. Here, we go!
