Google Translate Gets Updated, Lets You Take Pictures of Text To Translate


I don’t really ever use the Google Translate app on my phone, yet I like to have it installed because it is just that cool. It’s one of those apps that I use to show off my phone. But on the rare occasions that I do use it, it works great. And now with the latest update,  it got even better. Not only can you type, write, or speak something and have it translated, now you can even take a picture of text and have it translated to whatever supported language you desire. Simply snap the picture, and use your finger to highlight the text you want translated. The update also adds the ability to have text translated as you type it and improves the accuracy of voice translations as well.
