Google Translate comes to some Android Apps
Now, the method is simpler.
Google announced that Android 6.0 adds Google Translation support many applications, allowing you to translate the content into them in about 90 different languages.
Here’s how it works:
- run a supported Application
- select a portion of text you want to translate
- choose “translate” in the context menu
For more information about this new feature, see the attached GIF below:
The translation is not automatic. First, you’ll need a device running Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Then you will need to have the Google Translate Android app installed on your smartphone. And finally, the feature only works in applications that default to detect the text selection within Android or have explicitly been the translation support.
Google says that popular applications such as TripAdvisor, WhatsApp, and LinkedIn are already supported.
