Google today announced the arrival of interpreter mode for all smartphones that have their Assistant installed. This means that both Android and iOS will have access to this new feature.
This interpreter feature will allow you to do real time translations in 44 languages. This may be particularly beneficial for those visiting a country with a language they do not speak.
How to invoke Google Assistant interpreter mode
To awaken this functionality, a simple voice command will suffice. The phrases "Hey Google, help me speak French" or "Hey Google, be my French translator" will come to awaken this new function.
Once this mode is turned on, someone simply starts talking and Google Assistant translates what has been said into your language. The translation will appear on your screen and will be read out by the Google Assistant.
In the case of smartphones, there will also be the option for quick responses. This will be advantageous for maintaining a more fluid conversation or simply if you want to avoid talking out loud.
Interpreter functionality is coming in phased
The upgrade that will bring this new role to Google Assistant is done on the server side. That means you don't have to install anything on your smartphone to receive it.
Not surprisingly, not everyone receives this news at the same time. Therefore, if you have not received it, it will be a matter of time.
