This app would be really amazing if it didn't stop listening to a conversation because there was the smallest break. Like literally someone ends a sentence and before they begin their next sentence, the app starts translating and speaking to you while missing everything else the other person is saying. It ruins the whole experience and is not useful when having a conversation with someone that speaks a different language.

Generally reliable translations between English, French, Italian, and Spanish. I'm disappointed that my translation history was deleted by the web activity setting to delete stuff after 3 months. That setting needs to be more clearly explained, more granular ie by app. Lost many key phrases. Could care less about search history or YouTube history, but I have to turn off web activity deletion to keep my translations! I don't like the recent UI changes in this app.

The name of the language it is translating from/to are now the same color as the background. I thought it was my dark theme but when that was turned off it went from black on black to white on white. Tried to send feedback but it won't allow you to select what part of the screen the picture is taken so had to resort to leaving feedback here.

Hi there. You can use Dark mode in your Translate app for version 6.10 & above but there isn't a way to adjust Dark mode from the app directly. More info: https://goo.gle/32mTI5j. If the issue still persists, please create a post in the Google Translate Help Community to get help from our community of experts: goo.gle/2tkDc6j. Thanks.
