Google says its Translate app for Android and iPhone now can act as an interpreter. A real-time voice-translation mode has been included in the Google Translate app. The updated app of Google Translate can recognize the languages you are speaking and translate them. It not only translates but also speaks the translated words or sentences. The updated app was launched on Wednesday. In addition, it also lets users translate messages using their smartphone’s camera.
Though Google said initially it would not translate accurately but pure pronunciation would help it to translate messages instantly. Right now, Google Translate app allows users to translate almost 36 languages such as English to French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, etc using smartphone’s camera. However, this app might not understand complex linguistic tools. Users need to pronounce a specific word or sentence clearly to get the best result. The research to improve this feature is going on.
Users are expecting a better feature in the coming days. It may become a great tool for smart living in future days. Though Google is not the first one who launched a real-time voice translator feature. Last month, Microsoft included a similar feature in its popular Skype app. Now it’s time to see who is going to win this battle. According to Google, more than 500 million people use its translation app each month to translate words more than 1 billion times.
