    Google Adds New Translator Feature To Google Maps On Android And iOS—Here’s How To Use It

    Google Maps makes traveling easier with the launch of a new translator feature that allows your phone to speak out a location’s name and address in the country’s native language.

    This new feature is particularly useful when you’re traveling in a foreign country where language barriers exist.

    Although learning new languages can be a fun and rewarding experience, it’s not for everyone. Plus, you probably won’t have enough time to learn a new language before your next trip.

    With that said, here’s how it works.

    1. Open the Google Maps app and search for a place.
    2. Tap the new speaker button next to the location’s name or address.
    3. Now wait for Google Maps to speak out loud the locations name or address in the local lingo.

    Another interesting feature is that Google Maps will also link you to the Google Translate app so you can quickly find additional phrases without leaving Maps.

    Google says the new feature is currently rolling out on Android and iOS with support for 50 languages, including Japanese, Russian, Korean, Spanish, and Mandarin, among many others.
