Chrome Android App Update Includes Google Translate, Fullscreen for Tablets

chrome-android

Google rolled out a new update for its Chrome Android app yesterday, adding translate options that will automatically trigger when the you visit a foreign website, and full screen mode for tablets to the mobile web browser. Chrome 28.0.1500.64 for Android also includes a new optimized right-to-left (RTL) interface for Hebrew, Arabic and Farsi.

Google Translate for Android Chrome has actually been available in beta since May, but now everyone should have access to the easy-to-use service. Google won’t make you translate anything though. When you visit a page in a foreign language a toolbar will pop up offering to translate the text. Scroll down and the toolbar will simply¬†disappear.

Earlier this week, Google finally updated its Maps app on Android after introducing the redesigned service back in may at the annual I/O conference, offering a tablet-optimized experience and enhanced navigation with traffic information. The company also took the opportunity to get rid of Latitude on Maps, though a similar service will be integrated into Google Plus.
