Though it is just a translation app, it has some unique features built in. Especially Google Translate Android app has more functionality than its web version. Hence I would suggest you go for the Android app rather than the web. Below are some of its handy features which help you in translating and learning a language like a pro.
1. Learn pronunciation
Knowing the word alone is not just enough. One has to know its proper slang and accent in order to master the language. Google Translate lets you listen to how the Translated text is pronounced. In order to listen all you have to do is click on the “Listen Icon”. And the app will then read aloud the word or phrase you have entered. This way the app not just translate your phrase but improves your speaking skills too.
2. Word Lens
This is one of the unique features that this App has. Using this feature you can Translate text included in photos and images. There are three different ways by which you can translate the texts in the image.
- By simply pointing your camera at the text and have it translated into the desired language.
- By choosing an existing picture on your device. And then use your finger to highlight the text you want to Translate.

All you have to do is press the microphone icon and speak out words or phrases. You will have them Translated in the desired language.
4. Translate by handwriting
This feature will make you more reliable on this App for translations. In order to use this feature, you will have to click the Handwrite option. A box will appear and then you can write the word or a phrase. It is just like you write something on a page with a pen. And then you will have it translated in your desired language.
- It’s absolutely free, making it one of the best in the market.
- It’s quite fast.
- Google Translate uses a statistical learning Approach.
- It makes mistakes quite often, making it not completely reliable.
- The quality of translation varies from language pair to language pair. For example, the translation from English to Spanish would be accurate but that would not be the case for Danish to roman.
- It requires a proper internet connection.
The app is very handy when it comes to quick translation. The only thing that can bother is that you would need a stable internet connection to get your translation done. The app becomes even more reliable due to its word lens feature. The feature is pretty amazing and makes me use this app over and over again.
However, it produces some errors when translating less common phrases. And this is a very annoying thing in any app. If Google reduces the translation errors then I would highly recommend this app. But for now, I would give Google Translate Android app 4.2 stars out of 5. You can install this app from Google Play Store for free.
So this is my Google Translate Android app review. Hope it would help you to decide whether this app is useful or not. Do let me know your experience of using Google Translate Android app. Which is your best translation app for Android and why? Explain in comments.
