Google Assistant and Smart Displays Get an Interpreter Mode

Need to have a conversation with someone in a language other than the one you know? Google Assistant is getting an Interpreter Mode that will provide real-time translations over audio, while also showing written translations if using a smart display.

You can kick off an Interpreter Mode session by simply saying “Hey Google, be my French interpreter,” to which it will then fire up its French skills. Assuming you are standing next to someone who speaks French, you’ll have an easier time understanding one another.

This very much seems like a further expansion of the real-time translations that Google has been pushing over the past year, first through the Pixel Buds and then other headphones. And that’s a good thing!

This new mode will rollout over the next few weeks.
