New real-time Google Translator tool in Gboard
Google typing app Gboard released a new update with a bunch of new features. The version 9.7 beta includes ‘smart completion,’ ‘undo auto-correct on backspace,’ and Google Assistant dictation support. The most amazing is the combination of real-time voice transcription and simultaneous translation.

Now you can convert your voice typing simultaneously in any other language.
