The new feature will support any combination between the following eight languages: English, French, German, Hindi, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Thai.

Previously, Translate wasn’t well suited to translate lectures over video conferencing or in a classroom, longer discussions, or stories from grandparents who speak another language.

To address this gap, Google is introducing this new feature that transcribes audio into translated text.

While the feature is only available on Android devices currently, Google is planning to launch it on iOS in the future.

Here’s how Transcribe in the Google Translate app works:

New Arrival: Listen To Web Pages On Android Phones

Thursday, March 5th, 2020

You can now ask Google Assistant to read aloud the text on a webpage – basically turning any webpage into a podcast! The new functionality is now available on all Android phones.

Check out the video about the new Read It feature for Google Assistant in Android phones.

Check out the video about the new Read It feature for Google Assistant in Android phones.

Nowadays we consume so much content on our tiny smartphone screen – news, articles, stories etc.

For older folks with failing eyesight, or anybody with visual or reading difficulties, Google Assistant can now read web articles on your smartphone browsers out loud.

I’ve always wished that I could consume web content while I’m driving.

At the moment, you can only do that if it’s a podcast, or unless you just listen to the audio of a video, because you got to keep your eyes on the road while driving.

So I listen to the news or radio, or my own music while I drive.

With the ability of Google Assistant to read aloud web pages, I don’t have to postpone perusing a web article until when I can read it myself.

I can listen to it when I’m driving, or taking a bus or train (using earphones) so that I don’t have to strain my eyes reading on a moving vehicle.

The LG CordZeroThinQ A9 Stick Vacuum offers vacuuming and mopping from a single stick-type device, while the new CordZeroThinQ Robotic Mop combines LG’s robotics and appliance knowhow in a compact package.

LG’s proprietary Power Drive MopTM technology drives both the CordZeroThinQ A9 and CordZeroThinQ Robotic Mop.

An automatic water supply system enables the two rapidly rotating mop pads to have just the right amount of water to clean without leaving a puddle behind.

Philips Hue Play can provide a more immersive gaming experience with the light bars.

The keyword here is “immersive”.

So if you’re watching a movie, the Philips Hue Play light bars projects colours corresponding to the scenes on the TV screen so that it feels as if the colours on the screens are spilling out of the screen and lighting up the walls and surroundings.

If you’re listening to music, the light bars can translate the beats into light effects based on pre-canned translation algorithms or in whichever way you want to customise.

And if you’re playing games, especially if you’re using gear with the Razer Chroma RBG lighting – eg. laptops, keyboards, mice and mouse mats – you can sync the light bars to show matching lighting effects that change dynamically during gameplay.
