Google Assistant has for a long time been been a part of our lives. It might be education, food, fun, business, but whatever it is, as soon as you say ‘Hey Google’, Google Assistant is ready to help you with its maximum. Google Assistant is ready to take a huge step in the near future. It will soon be able to act as your real-life translator in 27 different languages. With the new ‘Interpreter Mode’ which is to be introduced to Google Assistant, it will have the ability to translate in real time, so you can hold conversations with someone who doesn’t share the same language as yours!
How Will ‘Interpreter Mode’ Work?
It’s just simple! All you have to do is just say “Hey, Google, help me speak French,” or “Hey, Google, be my French interpreter”, or something related. Thereafter Google Assistant will display the translation of what you say. Afterwards the microphone will be open for the other speaker to speak, and similarly what he says will be translated and shown. But if the two speakers continue to speak continuously without giving time for the assistant to work on it, for sure the process is a failure. But if the recommended procedure is followed it’s said that a good service is guaranteed.
It’s also said that you don’t have to tell Google what language you’re speaking. As at for now, reports show that it supports 27 different languages. As long as the user is speaking a language which it supports, Assistant is able to identify the language. Google Assistant is being smarter day by day! Isn’t it?
What are the Languages Supported by Google Assistant?
As mentioned earlier, Interpreter mode of Google Assistant is to work with 27 different languages. Those languages include Arabic, Chinese, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hindi, Hungarian, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Slovak, Spanish, Swedish, Thai, Turkish, Ukrainian and Vietnamese.
How Successful Will Be This Service ?
With interpreter mode on, the users will have to speak, wait for the translation to process, and repeat this procedure until the conversation is over. In a real world conversation it might be a bit unnatural and hard to go ahead with. That process can be tiring for longer conversations. At the same time Assistant might miss some sentences while the conversation is going ahead as well. Even though it’s so, still this real time translation service would indeed be helpful in so many circumstances where language is a barrier. With the ongoing improvements Interpreter Mode of Google Assistant is expected to be yet another successful feature of Google Assistant.
When Will the Interpreter Mode Arrive?
The mode will first arrive on the Google Home Hub. It is to be rolled out on Google Home devices and third-party smart displays from Lenovo, LG, JBL, and others over the next few months. However it will soon be available with all the devices with Google Assistant along with the success it achieves while rolling out.
