This means that if you have the translation pack for Japanese, you’ll now be able to point your camera at something written in that language, say a sign, and the app will easily translate it into English. Of course, the feature will work vice-versa as well.

Aside from this, the update also brings along fix for Facebook Messenger sharing bug on Android and background audio issue on iOS. The updated app is available for download from the Play Store and the App Store.
