Occasionally, it tells me it can't translate because it's offline, even when I'm connected to the internet. I verified I was connected by using the browser version. I tried uninstalling then reinstalling, but the issue still occurs periodically. It does work offline with downloaded languages, but only after turning on airplane mode.

Hi Bob. Let’s enable “Airplane Mode” from phone Settings to be completely offline & try again. If that doesn’t help, ensure that the correct languages are selected on the home screen. If they are, delete the languages using the Trash can icon - reconnect to WiFi or change your Data Usage settings & download the languages again. Thanks.

this new update definitely prioritizes form over function. checking my history is annoying, and using the "tap to translate" feature in the notification bar is now essentially no quicker than just opening the app itself. it used to be a one handed process; I could highlight the text I wanted to translate, hit copy, and the Tap to Translate feature would just translate the most recent thing in my clipboard. now, I both have to manually hit "paste", and erase whatever I previously translated. bad.

Despise the new UI. The history is much harder to look through. Great "improvement" (sarcasm expressed) Edit/reply: i did not have to use that step to get to the history, it was perfectly obvious to see and understand in a list for before without having to open a sub-menu. And the previous method to look through translation history was in a newest to oldest order, but now it's in some new kind of order that makes it difficult to look through. Completely unnecessary update.

Hi Elton. Thanks for using Google Translate. There are 2 ways to access History now! 1) Vertical swipe from top to down from Home screen of the app. 2) Open the app - On the top right, tap Account menu - History. More info here: https://goo.gle/2YiIz3J. Hope this helps.
