Google Translate has many interesting features, including a conversation mode and a live translation of the text through the camera, and now Google announced that they plan to expand the translation option in any application.
The function will be called Tap to Translate, and it was announced at an event in New Delhi.
According to Caesar Sengupta, a Google product management vice president, Tap to Translate allows users to copy text from anywhere on your device and automatically translate it into a floating window.
Thus, users do not have to leave the application in which they work.
Sengupta said that it would be particularly useful when used in instant messaging applications.
According to him, the most active users in India translate between Hindi and English several times a day, spending a lot of time to copy messages from friends or colleagues, their translation, response writing, translating the answer, and then insert back into the application.
The exact number of languages that will be supported by Tap to Translate, are not yet known. However, we know that the function will appear on Android devices in the first quarter of 2016.
