Which languages does Google’s Live Translate support?

The Pixel 6 and 6 Pro both support Google’s latest translation feature, Google Live Translate, which enables you to translate text into English, Chinese (simplified), French, German, Italian, Japanese, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish in real-time.

What is Google Live Translate?

The debut of Google’s mobile chip, Google Tensor, introduced several AI capabilities and useful features that are enough to make any owner of the Google Pixel 6 and 6 Pro giddy. Google Live Translate is just one such feature. It gives these select Android phone users the opportunity to send messages in another language within apps such as WhatsApp, Google Messages, and more.

For example, suppose you’re having a conversation on WhatsApp with someone who is typing in French. In that case, Google Live Translate can recognize this foreign language and subsequently offer a translation directly within the app. It’ll also enable you to send messages back to your correspondent in their respective language, or in this scenario, French.

For now, Google Live translate supports English, Chinese (simplified), French, German, Italian, Japanese, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish. In addition to letting you converse in various languages seamlessly, this feature makes it possible to use apps that aren’t in your native language. Another notable feature about Google Live Translate is that you don’t need network connectivity for it to do its job, and all translations are done on-device within Private Computer Core, so your data doesn’t leave your phone.
