Google’s Gboard for iOS now supports in-app translation

Google's has a pretty solid keyboard app for both Android and iOS, but curiously, the company always pick iOS to test and implement cool features before its own operating system. This month, the Gboard update is all about being able to translate text into lots of different languages with very little effort on your part.

"Google has been steadily adding languages to Google Translate, and we can expect the feature to continue to grow on iOS", the report added.

Google Translate now supports 103 languages.

Gboard for iOS adds text translation support: Here’s how to use it

Google now has 70 iOS apps within Apple's App Store in Canada. Apart from the instant translation support, there are no other changes in the latest version of Gboard.

The user must type the text they want translated directly into the Translate app that appears, not the messaging app's text field.

Once you update the app, Gboard will automatically detect the language you're typing or pasting in and offer a translation in the suggestion bar. To use the translation, tap select icon. The app had recently added support for Thai, Khmer, Lao, and Mongolian languages as well.
