A gorgeous improvement on Google Lens. Text translation without internet connection



The Google Lens or Google Lens app was first demonstrated at the Google I / O 2017 event. Later that year, the search giant integrated the service into the Google Assistant for Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL smartphones. The app was released on the Google Play store in June 2018.

All this time, the function of translating text was only available when connected to the Internet, but now Google has released a long-awaited update that adds a translation function without an Internet connection.

As reported by 9to5Google, offline translation support in Google Lens is rolling out to all Android users. The process happens automatically and in stages, so if you have not received the update yet, then you should wait a few days.

To use the function, you must open the application, then select the translation section and languages. A download icon appears next to the available language. Clicking on the icon will download the language pack to your device.

After that, you can use this function offline, that is, without an internet connection. The source confirms that offline translation works as well as online. The translation takes place almost instantly.

The app has recently overcame 500 million downloads on Google Play.
