Android 6.0 "Marshmallow" takes translation one step further by automatically integrating it into popular apps such as LinkedIn, WhatsApp, and TripAdvisor.
Users will need to have Google's Translate app installed on their phone or tablet for the feature to work, but they won't need to switch back and forth between Translate and other apps to be able to understand text written in other languages. The translated text will appear right in the app being used.
If you're using WhatsApp to communicate with someone in another language, the feature will help you to read his or her messages and to compose your own – just type a response in your preferred language, and Android will convert it to the language spoken by the other person. Google says the feature will allow for translation between any of 90 languages.
Let's test it out. Can any Marshmallow users check if the feature is translating this correctly? 君達の基地は、全てCATSがいただいた。 ("All your base are belong to us")
