Google announced at the beginning of the year that it will bring the Interpreter mode for Google Assistant. With the help of the mode, Google Assistant is able to translate over 40 languages in real-time. And now Google is testing the same feature for its Translate app. The feature is called “Continuous Translation”
The new feature will help the tourists to conversate because it will translate the conversation as it happens. The feature will be available in the app as the icon “Listen.” After selecting the Listen icon, a new window will open with a large microphone button at the bottom. You can select both input and output languages. The app will translate your speech into the target language in real-time.
The Listen page also has a settings button right next to the microphone button which allows you to change the translated text size, change the theme, and a toggle to show the original text. The feature was first discovered by the app reverse engineer Jane Manchun Wong. The feature currently includes support for Arabic, Chinese, English, French, German, Hindi, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Thai, Turkish, and Vietnamese languages.
