After successfully launching its new Overdub product, Descript acquired the company Lyrebird, which makes audio editing software. This acquisition helped the company launch a feature called Overdub, which allows users to create templates of their voice using a typing program. Overdub cannot create convincing audio deepfakes for other people. The company is focusing on expanding its product and adding new features.
