Safety starts with understanding how developers collect and share your data. Data privacy and security practices may vary based on your use, region, and age. The developer provided this information and may update it over time.
The new update completely ruined it. Before, the real time conversation worked excellent. Now, it hardly ever works, and it won't immediately speak the results. I have to push a button to get it to speak (if it will even pick it up), even though I've checked in my settings and I have it set to "immediately speak results". Please change it back!!

I have always loved this app. It has always worked flawlessly however after recent updates it's virtually unusable! Using voice to speak into the phone and have it translated is extremely slow and almost 100% of the time can't even use it because it won't even finish! I'm using English to Vietnamese and vice versa. Please fix this! I will need to be downloading a different program. If this can't be fixed I will have no choice but to uninstall Google Translate.. ........

Google Translate, which I love and used a lot, isn't working. (Android 11, Moto cell phone.) After some delay, iIt tells me "check your connection and try again". My WiFi is working correctly. The app has every permission. I've uninstalled and re-installed. I've cycled power on my phone. Nothing helped. Once it came back and did one translation, then stopped working the same way again. It's infuriating. Please fix. My previous review was 5 stars.
