Google Translate Update Brings Offline Language Packs; Play Movies App Updated To Support Info Cards
By on March 28th, 2013

Last night, Google released an update for its Google Translate app introducing the ability to translate text even in offline mode. The new feature supports more than 50 different languages including Chinese, Hindi, Arabic, French and Spanish.

Users will need to manually download and install the offline language pack for each individual language. The size of each language pack varies between 150-200MB. Keep in mind that these offline language packs won’t be as accurate as the online version, but still should be enough to get the job done. This new feature will work on all Android devices running Android 2.3 or higher.

Apart from this, Google also updated the Play Movies and TV app to add support for info cards. Info cards automatically show relevant information about the characters on-screen, their age, recent work etc. whenever a user pauses a movie while watching it. As of now, this feature will work with hundreds of movies, but Google is working on adding support for thousands of them and on Android 4.0+ devices only.

Both the app updates are already live in the Play Store, and can be downloaded right away!
