- Adobe Premiere Pro is now a native Apple M1 app after months of beta testing.
- The update also includes support for a new speech to text feature.
Adobe has released Premiere Pro as a fully M1-native app for the first time. Users can download Premiere Pro 15.4 now — and it has some new features thrown in, too.
Announced as part of the July Update, the new M1 support not only means that the app can run natively on M1 Macs for the first time, but it also means that Premiere Pro users can look forward to some speed improvements across the board, too.
Adobe's new speech to text feature will use Adobe Sensi to generate transcripts for videos for improved accessibility and engagement.
