Google Translate App Updated with Word Lens and Camera Mode Features
The Google Translate app just got a massive upgrade, giving users some new features that will really make communicating with others a breeze when you’re traveling. For example, the new Word Lens feature lets you translate instantly without Internet or data by just pointing your camera to a sign or text. This currently supports French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish. You can even just snap a photo, highlight the text, and get a translation across 36 languages with Camera Mode. When you’re in conversation mode, there’s no need to pick the two languages being used as automatic language detection does all the heavy lifting. Couple these new features with existing tricks like being able to star your favorite translations for quick, offline access and you’ve got a pretty amazing translation app. Head to the Android Google Play store or the App Store to get the latest version of the Google Translate app.
