How to Enable Closed Captions on Pluto TV – Android, iOS, Roku, Amazon, and Browser

Pluto TV is a cool service to have on hand, especially as it's free to use. Thankfully, most videos come with closed captions, so you can follow the shows you love even when you have to keep the sound levels on the low side. Let's see how you can enable closed captions on Pluto TV.
