Samsung Live Translate feature to soon work with third-party apps

Samsung unveiled its latest foldable smartphone — Galaxy Z Fold 6 , Galaxy Z Flip 6, Galaxy Watch 7, Watch Ultra, Galaxy Ring and the Galaxy Buds 3 series at its latest Galaxy Unpacked event. At the launch, the company also announced that the Live Translate feature will soon be available in third-party apps .

Previously limited to Samsung's built-in apps, Live Translate will soon empower users to break down language barriers across various third-party apps, with a focus on messaging platforms.

Live Translate, which offers real-time translation for calls and messages, will transcend the boundaries of Samsung's native apps. This means users can enjoy seamless language translation while using their favourite messaging apps like WhatsApp or Telegram. Live Translate can instantly translate incoming messages and your replies, fostering smooth and effortless communication.

Samsung also announced that it will add more languages to the Live Translate feature throughout the year, further enhancing its accessibility. By the end of July, users can expect support for 16 languages, with a potential reach of 20 languages by year's end.

While the official announcement didn't specify a release date, the feature is expected to arrive in a future update for compatible Galaxy smartphones. The update will likely be available for the Galaxy S24 series, S23 series, S23 FE, S22 series, Z Fold5, Z Fold4, Z Flip5, Z Flip4, Tab S9 5G series, and Tab S8 5G series.
