Google extends Assistant's 'Interpreter' mode to Home speakers, more devices


Google has extended the "Interpreter" mode on its Assistant to Home speakers and other third-party devices.

The "Interpreter" mode will help users have real-time conversations with compatible devices and also translates them into other languages. 

"For now, you must use English, French, German, Italian, Japanese or Spanish to start the interpreter mode. After you've started interpreter mode, you can ask Google Assistant to translate between more languages," the company wrote in a blog-post on Tuesday. 

The feature supports 26 international languages including Hindi, English, Arabic, Korean and Portuguese among others.

Users can ask Assistant to "turn on interpreter mode" to invoke the feature on compatible devices and choose which languages they desire to use. 

"When you hear the tone, start speaking in either language. You don't have to alternate between languages for the interpreter mode to work," the port said.

Using the interpreter mode on a Smart Display would allow users to both see and hear the translated conversation. They can also swipe from left to right to stop the interpreter mode. 

Google first demonstrated the feature at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in January 2019 in Las Vegas. 

The mode first arrived on the Google Home Hub and is expected to be made available on more third-party devices from Lenovo, LG and JBL over the next few months.
