Say, "Ok Google" followed by any of these voice commands:

  • Be my Italian interpreter
  • Help me speak Spanish
  • Interpret from Polish to Dutch
  • Chinese interpreter
  • Turn on interpreter mode

As per the company, the Google assistant can help you translate 44 languages in real-time. Just like Gmail, this mode will also have a smart reply feature. After each translation, the Assistant may present smart replies, giving you suggestions that let you quickly respond without speaking.
