Getting information these days is faster and easier thanks to Google Assistant. Now, Google launches a new feature that will definitely add more convenience to its users – the new Interpreter Mode in Google Assistant. Google can help you translate specific languages as you talk to another person with a different language.
What is the Interpreter Mode?
As the name implies, Google Assistant will become your interpreter in a conversation. You can maintain a realtime conversation with someone speaking a different language through Google’s automatic translation. Google Assistant has 44 languages and it can translate all these languages in an instant.
The new Interpreter mode is compatible with any Google Assistant devices. It can work on an Android or an iOS device. You can also access it in all Smart Displays, Google Home speakers, and Smart clocks.
Getting Started with Google Assistant’s Interpreter Mode
To use your Google Assistant Interpreter Mode, first, launch Google Assistant on your device. Google Assistant will then identify the language you are using and will ask you waht language to interpret. Specify the language that you want to use.
Once in a conversation, tap the microphone icon and start saying phrases in your language. Your Google Assistant will interpret it to the other language. You can hand it over to the other person and Google Assistant will display and speak the translation. The person you are talking to will speak on your device so Google can translate it for you. Do this back and forth to create a seamless conversation despite two languages spoken.
