Google Speech to Text using Line out


I am trying to save time by keeping notes of youtube videos (transcripts are not available in my local language), using Google speech to text functionality of my Android phone.

In order to do that, currently, im moving my phone's handsfree microphone close to the speaker of my computer, which is fine, but I would prefer it in a more silent way.

I tried the following but it didnt work. Can you please advise and if there's a solution to my problem (ie a special cable or related gear):

I plugged in a JACK to JACK cable to my computer's line out and to my smartphone's jack but it didnt work even if line out was sending the signal fine.

Thanks in advance,
