A few months ago, the Google translator has redesigned its interface with Material You, leaving behind the design of the first generation of Material Design from 2014 to offer a more current and consistent interface with the rest of its applications. but Google was left out to release new widgets.
With the arrival of Android 12, or rather, with the arrival of widgets in iOS 14, Google began to renew all its widgets for Android, and it took until today to officially know what the new google translate widget
Here is the new Google Translate widget
Until now, and for years, the application of the Google translator it only has a widget transformed into a shortcut to translate faster, since it allows us to open the application to start translating in a certain language and type of translation. Well, Google announced via your twitter account a new widget for your translator which improves the previous widget.
Under the new interface Material Youwe find a new widget in which we only have to put the language in which we want to translate. The widget will show all translation options
This new clipboard option is very practical, since if we want to translate a message or a text from an application, we only have to copy it and clicking on the widget’s clipboard icon will open Google Translate showing the translation of the copied text. We won’t have to press paste and translate. The app will do this automatically.
Google hasn’t announced when this new widget will come to Android. In his announcement he limited himself to showing how widgets are added to Android, with which one could interpret that the new widget will begin to reach users in the coming days. This same widget arrived on iOS last March.
What’s unclear is how many widgets will come to Google Translate. Last February, two widgets in development for Android were leaked. One is the one that Google has confirmed but there is another widget that would allow us to access our translation history directly from our mobile desktop, but it is possible that Google has rejected it.
