Google Translate Translates Conversation on Android

Google took us one step closer to a universal translator that translates the spoken word in one language to another on-the-fly. Google Translate for Android got an update, and with it Google introduced a very early, alpha version of Conversation Mode. It means that one can now have a very buggy conversation with anyone on your Android phone who does not speak the same language as you. They will hear what you said in their language, and vice versa.
This is a new interface within Google Translate that’s optimized to allow you to communicate fluidly with a nearby person in another language. You may have seen an early demo a few months ago, and today you can try it yourself on your Android device.
Present time you can only use Conversation Mode between English and Spanish. In conversation mode, simply press the microphone for your language and start speaking. Google Translate will translate your words and speech and read the translation out loud. Then your conversation partner can respond in his language, and you’ll hear the translation spoken back to you. Because this technology is still in alpha, factors like regional accents, background noise or rapid speech may make it difficult to understand what you’re saying. Even with these caveats, we’re excited about the future promise of this technology to be able to help people connect across languages.
