Google’s interpreter real-time translation model has finally landed on mobile devices, following the launch of smart speakers and displays earlier this year,media outlet TechCrunch reported. From now on, the feature will be more easily available for such apps and will be available on Android and iOS phones around the world.
This feature works with Assistant. After saying instructions such as “Hey Google, be my German translation” or “Hey Google, help me translate Thai”, the feature is activated to provide text and audio translated in real time. The feature also provides some Gmail smart replies to help keep the conversation going.
This feature is now available in 44 languages (full list here), compared to only 29 available languages on smart displays/speakers. It integrates directly into the Google Assistant app without downloading other translation apps. Google’s translation app has quickly become an integral part of many users’ travel abroad.
