Google Translate app now understands handwriting recognition

The Google Translate app for Android received a fairly large update the day before last, introducing the concept of  handwriting recognition to its large variety of functionalities. The app, which added voice recognition back in October, can now understand handwriting in 7 different languages, including English, French, Italian, German, and Spanish. It remains extremely important, however, for Chinese- and Japanese-speaking people, who can now use their handsets to translate characters that aren’t typically featured on English keypads. The update to version 2.3 is available now, at the source link below. What do you think? Is the update any good? Leave a comment below!
