gtranslate-appIt does seem that Google is on an update flurry today, with us seeing how Google Wallet has been updated so that you know whatever “order” which you have placed is being processed as well as the status of it. Well, how about Google Translate for Android? This nifty little app has also been given a bump in the version department, where it will obviously come with its fair share of new features for the masses.

Basically, the latest version of Google Translate for Android is now able to decipher handwriting in thirteen new languages. No longer do you need to type in individual characters, as all that you need to do is to scribble what you would like to jot down, and Google will automatically recognize those. The thirteen new languages supported include Arabic, Bosnian, Cebuano, Gujarati, Hmong, Kannada, Maltese, Mongolian, Persian, Punjabi, Somali, Tamil, and Telugu.

Apart from that, there are also the mandatory bug fixes that arrive with each update, and we are presented with Improved stability as well as some crash bugs removed. While the changelog has been updated on the Play Store page to reflect the new version’s capabilities and features, it does not automatically translate to the update being introduced to your mobile device just yet, so being patient is highly recommended.
