Google Translate to offer cloud-based AI recording transcribe feature
Google has showed off a new transcription feature in the Google Translate app during an event at its San Francisco office last night.
According to a report from The Verge, once the feature is rolled out, users can record audio in one language and get live transcription in another language. Initially, it will only work with live recordings — not pre-recorded audio files — and rely on cloud-based AI.
Google also said it’ll launch the feature first on Android.
A report from CNET says the company is already testing the feature in several languages including French, German, and Spanish.
Google already has a transcription feature in the form of the Recorder app on Pixel phones. However, that relies on on-device AI and provides transcriptions only in the English language.
The company has provided no absolute timeline as to when the feature will roll out. It remains to be seen when transcription feature goes live.
