Google introduces native translations to Google+ , coming to desktop, mobile apps soon
Chi further explains — in comments below his post — that in-built translation is “something that Larry Page has asked for, so we’re super excited to make this into a reality.”
The move brings Google+ level with Facebook, which has sported Bing-powered translations since 2011, and Twitter, which began its own rollout of Bing translations at the end of June. Unlike its competitors, Google+ translations are, unsurprisingly, powered by Google’s own Translate service.
Google is stepping things up with its two-year-old Google+ service after it released an API last week, finally allowing developers to build third party services for it.
