Google Translate widget on Android gets Material You treatment

What you need to know

  • Google Translate now has new Material You-themed widgets on Android.
  • The “Saved Translation” widget provides quick access to translations you’ve recently completed.
  • Another widget gives you access to quick actions such as voice translation, conversation mode, and camera-based translations.

The Google Translate app on Android received a nifty Material You facelift late last year, giving it a more modern look and an interactive design, but its widget was left out in the cold. That changes now with a pair of new Material You-themed widgets for the app.

Google announced the new update on Twitter, where it showed off what the new home screen widgets look like. They provide faster ways to interact with the service’s various features without having to open the app first, saving users a few taps.
