The Google Assistant's interpreter mode - previously exclusive to smart displays and speakers - has begun rolling out to Android and iOS mobile devices.
The Assistant’s real-time translation feature, interpreter mode, lets you have a back and forth conversation with someone speaking a foreign language, by using your phone.
To get started, just say “Hey Google, be my German translator” or “Hey Google, help me speak Spanish” and you’ll see and hear the translated conversation on your phone. After each translation, the Assistant may present Smart Replies, giving you suggestions that let you quickly respond without speaking.
Interpreter mode supports 44 languages, and since it’s integrated with the Assistant, it’s already on your Android phone. To access it on iOS, download the latest Google Assistant app. Interpreter mode also features different ways to communicate suited to your situation: you can type using a keyboard for quiet environments, or manually select what language to speak.
