Google Assistant has got a brand-new feature to make your life easy. Google has started rolling out “Interpreter mode” to Android smartphones with Google Assistant. Using this mode you can get the real-time translation of someone speaking a foreign language and conversate with him.
Travelers already turn to the Assistant for help researching and checking into flights, finding local restaurant recommendations and more. To give you even more help during your trip, the Assistant’s real-time translation feature, interpreter mode, is starting to roll out today on Assistant-enabled Android and iOS phones worldwide. Using your phone, you can have a back and forth conversation with someone speaking a foreign language.
It is an easy to use feature and currently supports 44 languages. It is a server-side roll-out and thus would be available without need of an app update.
To get started, just say “Hey Google, be my German translator” or “Hey Google, help me speak Spanish” and you’ll see and hear the translated conversation on your phone. After each translation, the Assistant may present Smart Replies, giving you suggestions that let you quickly respond without speaking—which can make your conversations faster and even more seamless.
Interpreter mode helps you translate across 44 languages, and since it’s integrated with the Assistant, it’s already on your Android phone.
