Google has added the ‘Translate’ feature on its third-party keyboard — Gboard — for iOS users to allow them to type and translate text into different languages.

Supporting 103 languages, the Google Translate on Gboard is available on version 1.42 of the keyboard and on iPhones and iPads running iOS9 or higher, Engadget reported on Friday.

“As you type, you’ll find the translation in the suggestion strip or by pressing the Google button. The app automatically detects the language you’re typing or pasting text in and lets you then select which language you want to translate to,” the report said.

The feature was overdue for iOS users since Gboard had supported translation on Android since 2017.

“Google has been steadily adding languages to Google Translate, and we can expect the feature to continue to grow on iOS,” the report added.

Google has revamped Search with a redesign that would help mobile users better understand which information is coming from where and what are they looking for.

“The name of the website and its icon appear at the top of the result card to help anchor each result so you can more easily scan the page of results and decide what to explore next,” Jamie Leach, Senior Interaction Designer, Search, Google wrote in blog-post on Wednesday.

Now when users search for a product or service and Google displays an important advertisement, a highlighted ad label would show on top of the card alongside the web address.

“This new design allows us to add more action buttons and helpful previews to search result cards, all while giving you a better sense of the web page’s content with clear attribution back to the source,” Leach said.
