Google has been tearing up lately when it comes to adding new features to Gboard. Recently a company introduced smart completion in almost all Android apps
The new Gboard update adds a smart finish and more
Now Google is launching a new feature that adds real-time audio translation to Gboard. This means that you can speak your phone in one language and send your message in another.
How to use the new Gboard audio translation feature
Like Android Police, Google combines two of Gboard ‘s most useful features – dictation and translation. Both have been on Gboard for some time, but they have never worked together. With the latest update, you can speak what you want to say to your phone in one language, have it translated in real time, and then send the message in the translated language.
To take advantage of the new feature, you need to launch a translation feature that already existed in Gboard. When you open it, you will see the microphone on the right side of the screen. Tap the microphone and start speaking the language you want to translate from. You will see the translation result in the top window and the original text at the bottom.
It’s definitely easy to use and seems to do a pretty good job, especially considering how much work Google does in the background to dictate and translate text at the same time.
Availability of Gboard Voice Translation
Google said the translation feature for Gboard Audio is now available to all users. However, some people report that they still do not see the microphone function. It’s a change that needs to happen on Google’s side, so it may only take a short time before everyone has access to it.
