Google Translate's Ridiculous Instant Camera Is Tech That Looks Like Magic

The app just added 20 languages to its Word Lens feature.

Google Translate introduced Word Lens to its Android app in January of this year, allowing users to simply point their cameras at words in another language, and instantly see them translated in the same color and font directly on their phones. When the feature was originally released, only seven languages were supported.

Now an additional 20 have been included with the latest update, meaning you can take your phone to even more locations around the world and have the benefit of a local translator right at your fingertips.


Check out the app in action translating lyrics from "La Bamba."

Ready ... go.

First dude is thrilled to be a part of this.

Just a little bit.

Arriba, arriba.

He is the captain now.
