Google Translate’s instant camera gains support for 60 new languages today

Google Translate instant camera translations get a massive boost

The new look has all three camera translation features conveniently located on the bottom of the app. Until now, Google Translate Instant Camera supports 88 languages but it now supports 60 more languages. Previously, users had to manually enter the source language being scanned. At times like this, Google Translate app's instant camera translate feature becomes really handy.

Anyone who has traveled overseas to a country where they don't speak the language is probably already familiar with the Google Translate app. You can check out a full list of which languages support which feature here. Google's also introducing the ability to detect the language of text automatically, so if you aren't sure what language a text is in, you can simply point at it and Google will try to detect the language itself. In simple words, you can now translate Bengali int Hindi instead of English or Japanese into French and so on.

Whatever update delivers these new features isn't live for me just yet though Google makes it sounds like these features are rolling out today, so try your own luck over on the Play Store. Grab the app below if you don't have it installed.

Google says this upgrade has its Neural Machine Translation (NMT) technology baked in it, so the quality of the instant camera translations should be significantly better than before.

A common concern when travelling is Wi-Fi and/or cellular data availability. The instant camera feature, for those unfamiliar, allows you to point your phone's camera at any text from the real-world, and Google Translate can translate that into any language you want. It also works when your phone is offline if you download the language beforehand. Steady translated text overlays make the translations easy to read and understand quickly.
