Google has released an updated version of Google Translate app in Android Market. The new version include several small improvements including better dropdown boxes to help select the languages you want to translate from and into, an improved input box, and cleaner icons and layout.
But the main addition in this update is the conversation mode, which lets users to communicate with others in different language. As the features is still in alpha stage, it only supports English and Spanish, and may not be 100% accurate always. But it does have a great future.
How does Google Translate conversation mode works:
In conversation mode, simply press the microphone for your language and start speaking. Google Translate will translate your speech and read the translation out loud. Your conversation partner can then respond in their language, and you’ll hear the translation spoken back to you.
