Google Translate is the best translator you can find for free (or maybe in general). On Chrome for computers, you can automatically translate foreign languages without having to go to the website, which is easy and intuitive. Unfortunately, on Android you’re stuck copying and pasting text into the Translate app, which requires quite a few steps. Luckily, Google has solved that problem.

Starting with Android Marshmallow, you’ll be able to use a system-wide translation feature thanks to Google Translate 4.3. The app update takes advantage of the contextual selection feature in Marshmallow so you can select text and instantly translate it. It’s an extremely useful feature.

But until we all get Marshmallow, most of us won’t get to experience this feature. We’ll have to wait for official updates. For those of you already running Android 6.0, give it a shot and let us know how it works!
