That is been overhauled as neatly with spherical blue and crimson mic icons to your two languages and a correctly categorised “Auto” mic icon within the heart that detects each languages. Plus there is a neat waving hand at the most sensible proper that displays an explanatory graphic to the opposite individual so that they perceive what is taking place and why you might be pointing your telephone at them.

The capability is very similar to earlier than, however it is clearer now that you are in a dialog. Up to now, you had to go into voice mode after which after the primary translation is finished, you needed to faucet the mic once more to release the automated dialog mode.
The brand new interface must seem over a server-side exchange on the most recent Google Translate five.16.0RC09, which dates again to early February. However in case you do not see it, you will have to pressure shut the app or transparent information to get it.
