Google has again enriched one of its most practical and spectacular applications with several new functions. The latest update to Google Translate brings a “Tap to Translate” function to Android and rolls out the offline mode to iOS.
It’s no surprise to see Google debut a major new function in the Android version of its translation tool. The new “Tap to Translate” button is available in any app, allowing Android users to select text to translate instantly into the language of their choice, with no need to copy and paste into Google Translate.
Google has also rolled out the app’s offline mode to iOS. This allows users to download dictionaries for as many languages as they like, with each language pack around 30MB in size. Simply go into the list of languages and click on the arrow next to the ones you want to use offline. A total of 52 language packs can be downloaded for use at any time.
