  • The Google Translate app's offline feature now supports seven more regional languages including Bengali, Gujarati, Kannada, Marathi, Tamil, Telugu and Urdu. The feature is already available in Hindi and is now being rolled out to support additional Indian languages.

Google is bringing its offline translation feature to users speakering Bengali, Gujarati, Kannada, Marathi, Tamil, Telugu and Urdu.

The new conversation mode is a feature that allows Google Translate users to have a bilingual conversation with some by simply talking to the app. In order to activate conversation mode, users need to tap the mic to start speaking in a selected language and then tap the mic again. The Google Translate app will automatically recognise the language being spoken and let users have a fluid conversation.

In order to take advantage of this new feature, Google Translate users will need to first download both language packs. With offline support, users can translate a word or sentence even when they are not connected to the Internet. Google also recently announced voice input support for eight additional Indian languages including Bengali, Gujarati, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, Tamil, Telugu and Urdu.

Google's Translate app already allows users to point their camera on English text and get a translation for it in the above-mentioned Indian languages. With the Word Lens feature, users can instantly translate text using their camera. All these features are available in Hindi and are now being rolled out to support additional Indian languages on both iOS and Android. Google recently rolled out 'The Feed' for Indian users with support for Hindi and has been customising its services for regional users.
