Translator, that was released a few months ago, had a big advantage in its Android Wear support, but lacked some features like camera view, offline functionality and the live conversation mode. But Microsoft Translator 1.2 has overcome these hurdles and added natural conversation support in its app.
Whats new in Microsoft Translator 1.2
- With Translator 1.2 you can have natural conversation in Chinese, French, Italian, English, Spanish and German. More languages will be added soon.
- You can use your smart watch and phone altogether to enable conversations without huddling around a single phone.
- Live conversations will be saved in your history and will be geo-tagged so that you can check what you were told during the chat.
