Somebody call Stockholm. Google today released Translate for Animals on the Android Market, marking the groundbreaking app that finally lets us humans communicate with our two-, three- and four-legged brethren.

The revolutionary applications -- which is free, despite the centuries of development time -- translates the speech of cats, dogs, birds, rabbits, Guinea pigs, hamsters, tortoises, horses, chickens, sheep, donkeys and pigs. Support for snakes, goats, bison and wildebeests is expected in a future update, slated for sometime in the the second half of 2010.

Look out, Darwin! Google introduces Translate for Animals application!


HA! they could have at least made it respond to sound i just tested it in silence and it gave some stupid translation.

The funniest part are some of the comments on the app, "Keeps force closing when I put it in my fishbowl". Nice.

Hmm, I thought Mice were the animals that knew the meaning of life.
For those that didn't get the second picture, its in reference to "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy"

It's not early for everyone. It's been April 1 in Australia for the last 13 hours. Perhaps Google released it early to get maximum coverage.

Too bad it's not true though. That app would be awesome.

Oh man this app is so awesome! "Whoever invented the wheel, was a total genius" and "Seriously, what's with the stick thing? It's getting old

I cannot find it in the market, and the link says the requested item could not be found, do we not get it here in the always behind everybody else U.S. of A.????

Hahaha, great April Fools Google! Hilarious, I knew right away it was too good to be true. Cause if it were, that would be an internationally epic, groundbreaking invention.
