During CES 2019, Google had its own show, that focused mostly on the Google Assistant and all Google smart speakers. Google announced many new features and apps that are coming to Google Assistant this year. Among those features was Google Interpreter Mode which Google promised that it will roll out in the next few weeks.
As they promised, Google Interpreter Mode started appearing on Google Home smart speakers, Google Smart Displays, and some Google Assistant powered third-party speakers. The support for this feature will be available on Android smartphones soon according to Google.
Google Assistant can use Interpreter Mode to translate from and to 26 different languages. But for some strange reason, the language that you can use to talk to your Google Assistant is determined by the country you live in, and the type of device that you are using. For example, you can only use English with the Google Home Hub if you are in the U.S., U.K., Australia, or Canada. The Google Home Max adds the use of German in Germany, French in France, as well as Canadian French in Canada. While Google Home Mini has the widest country and user language support, including 19 countries and 16 different languages.
If you use Interpreter Mode on a Smart Display, the translated conversion appears on the screen while you are talking.
In order to use Google Interpreter Mode, all you have to do is to ask your Google Assistant to turn on Interpreter Mode and choose the two languages that you want to translate. Your Google Assistant will let you know if it’s available or not according to your country and device.
When you are done with your conversation, you can exit Interpreter Mode by saying “Stop”, “Exit”, or in case you are using a smart display, you can swipe from left to right.
