A picture speaks a thousand words, and with its latest update, Google Translate can translate both.
Google is rolling out a big update to its translation app, which now allows users to translate objects like street signs and notes just by photographing them.
While the feature is new to Google Translate, it’s been a fundamental part of Google Goggles for a while now. Goggles allows users to search the web by photographing physical objects like landmarks, books, and text on street signs (which can then be translated).
Lack of pure novelty aside, the addition is a massively important one to Google Translate, which can now help people save lots of time during one of the most common instances of encountering new words.
Alongside the camera addition, the Google Translate update also improves Japanese handwriting input, adds dialect preferences, and offers instant translation results.
