A serious boost for your next trip abroad. Google’s voice assistant now includes an interpreter mode that can translate your conversations in real time, reports the Phonandroid site.

A translator in real time

To activate Google Assistant’s interpreter mode, simply say a voice command, for example: “Ok Google, be my interpreter in Japanese”. The conversation will then be automatically translated into voice, with a transcript written on the screen of your device.

As the discussion progresses, Google Assistant’s artificial intelligence can also suggest appropriate answers that can speed up the conversation.

A highly anticipated smartphone deployment

Already installed on Google Home speakers, the interpreter mode is available for the first time on smartphones. In addition to machine translation, Google Assistant includes a manual option that makes it easier to control what is translated.

However, for optimal operation, it will be necessary to ensure that this functionality is well articulated and used in a calm environment. Because in practice, the interpreter mode can malfunction in a noisy environment, in case of interference or mispronunciation, says the Journal du Geek, which considers that “optimizations remain to be done” to fully benefit from the potential of this innovation
