Improve your linguistic capabilities
Google Translate can be a wonderful way to solve communication problems between multinational people. You can snap images of street signs when abroad and translate them, understand instructions written in a language you can't read, or have a full-blown conversation with a person who doesn't even speak the same tongue as you. If you own a pair of Pixel Buds, getting real-time translations on the Google Translate app is even easier.
Many times, you may translate content that you need to refer back to later. For instance, if you go on holiday, you'd want to remember certain phrases or pieces of information someone gave you. In those cases, you should take full advantage of the Google Translate app's capability to save transcripts to your Android phone.
Break language barriers
Globalization has brought so many diverse cultures and people together. We may not speak the same language, but that shouldn't stop communication. Get the Google Translate app to translate written text, audio, and even images.
