Recently,media bgr reporter said: Most of Google’s mobile apps are very good, I have written countless times how much I like them. I’ve been an iPhone user since the first iPhone was released in 2007, but I’ve been using Google longer and still relying on google for a lot of things. In fact, my dream is for Google to take over everything it does on the iPhone.
Apple’s apps and services have really gotten better and better over the years, but I still think they’re not as high as Google in every key area. I email Gmail, use Google Maps to navigate, use Google Voice as my work phone, organize and back up my photos with Google Photos, use Google Calendar, and have a lot of Google apps on my iPhone. In fact, I don’t even bother Safari to browse the web, but instead choose to use the Google app to handle search and browsing. I have another Google app on my phone, but I don’t use it as often as I think, and Google recently announced a new feature, and I can’t wait to try it out.
I rarely travel recently, mainly because I don’t have time. However, when I travel, Google Translate is a godsend. This excellent application almost completely removes the language barrier, allowing me to speak in English and translate my words into either of dozens of different languages. The person I’m talking to can then reply in his or her native language, and Google Translate will read what he or she said to me in English. That’s great… But it will get better.
If you can believe that your dream is to be able to translate in real time. There are already a number of products that try to do this through headphones, and they have different effects. The Google Translate app is relatively reliable at this point, but the process is also rather slow. When a person speaks, the application will read the sentence in a new language like a human translator. It works well, obviously better than doing nothing, but wouldn’t it be better to have a faster choice? Yesterday, Google showed off a faster option at a small event.
The upcoming new Google Translate app will be able to translate and transcribe conversations in near real time, allowing one person to read text in their native language and another to speak in another. It’s just shocking. Here’s a live video:
Unfortunately, it’s unclear when the new feature will be open to the public, and Google says it’s working to make it available at some point in the future.
