"When you hear the tone, start speaking in either language. You don't have to alternate between languages for the interpreter mode to work," the port said.

Using the interpreter mode on a Smart Display would allow users to both see and hear the translated conversation. They can also swipe from left to right to stop the interpreter mode.

Google first demonstrated the feature at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in January 2019 in Las Vegas.

The mode first arrived on the Google Home Hub and is expected to be made available on more third-party devices from Lenovo, LG and JBL over the next few months.
