I used this app for years. Recently, it stopped working. I downloaded the needed language before a trip last week. It told me it was downloaded. When I tried using it offline, it told me I had to download the language. It was super frustrating because i didn't have service or access to wifi. I have tried fixing it several times, and no matter what I do, it will not translate offline. It has gone from auseful app to a pointless one. The Help sends you to a forum where everyone has the same issue.

Hi Laurel. 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.

Liking the new app. It's working great on my Pixel 7 Pro. The app runs faster, is less glitchy and doesn't time out. I like how the new split screen lets you sit across from each other and read the text. I use this to translate Thai, which is a notoriously difficult language. The app isn't perfect but does much better giving an accurate translation. It would be nice to be able to save larger transcripts than currently able to now.

Recent update broke the camera feature. I am no longer able to translate from the live camera. Edit: totally useless reply from Google. I know how to use the camera translate feature. I've used it for years in more than two dozen countries. The recent update has broken the camera feature. It is frozen on whatever image is in front of the camera when you open the app. Even from photos it doesn't work. Useless.
