Now On Tap update brings instant translation
Google Translate already can instantly translate your copy-paste material, but why not just make it a two-tap process? Forget all the highlighting, just translate everything on the screen.
Whenever you encounter something on your phone you want to translate, just make sure you can long-press to get to Now on Tap and you’ll get a new “Translate this Screen” option. Boom. Perfecto. If your Android phone is on English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Portuguese or Russian, you’re set to go.
This update to Now on Tap also includes a new “Discover” feed of YouTube clips and news articles for certain topics, plus QR and barcode reading through your camera. Nifty stuff, available right now.
