Google has announced the integration of its translate text-to-speech technology on the Google Maps. The company believes this new update will bridge the gap between Google Maps and Google translate. This new update will allow users to directly translate text into speech within the Maps app. So now you needn't have to select and copy the text and go to translator app to translate it. This will allow users to travel in foreign countries without worrying about the language.

"We're bringing Google Maps and Google Translate closer together. This month, we're adding a new translator feature that enables your phone to speak out a place's name and address in the local lingo. Simply tap the new speaker button next to the place name or address, and Google Maps will say it out loud, making your next trip that much simpler. And when you want to have a deeper conversation, Google Maps will quickly link you to the Google Translate app," reads Google blog post.

This new feature will allow users to enable phones to speak out the name of the places and addresses in the local language. Users need to click the speaker button which is newly added to the app situated next to the place name and address bar.

The new feature will work on text-to-speech technology which is capable of automatically detecting default language set on the phone and the language of the place. With the help of this algorithm, Google Translate will perform realtime translation of places name and address.


According to Google, this new feature will be available on both iOS and Android platforms and it will come with 50 languages support. Google might also add new languages later in future.
