Google Now Allows Android Users To Translate Text In Any App

Google has now made translations much easier for both Android and iOS users.

Announcing the new features, the official blogpost said, “Say hello to Tap to Translate on Android. We know millions of you painstakingly copy-paste text between Google Translate and other apps. Now, you can just copy the text of a chat, comment, song lyric, etc. in whichever app you’re using, and a translation will pop up right there—no need to switch apps.”

So now with this feature, Android users can anytime copy the text and the translation will be done right there without having to move out of the particular app. The Translate service now supports 103 languages.

Google has also launched the offline mode in iOS devices and has also reduced the size of the offline language packages to 25 MB each.

It has also added ‘Word Lens in Chinese’ which supports instant visual translation for Chinese and also reads both to and from English. It also works in offline mode.

The new features will be rolled out in the next few weeks.

Why does Facebook work so much better – after all Yahoo/Google Groups for suchlike did exist in the past as well? The answer may lie in the network effect – read visibility – that Facebook brings to every update, every share. A much wider sharing, and the chance discovery of something that might catch a user’s attention is more “life-like” than the act of pursuing a clear, identified intent on a search engine or a website dedicated for buying/selling used goods, or with restaurant advice.
