Android 12 continues its usual route towards the market. The next version of Google’s mobile operating system has already crossed the threshold of its second version for developers and is already on the final stretch towards beta versions, and future features that should arrive with the final release, back in August, are still being leaked.
We recently learned that Android 12 is already finalizing the details for its recycle garbage can, a recycle garbage can that already exists in Android 11 although somewhat limited by the type of files it accepts, and that may be redesigned for the next version. Now, from the source code of Android 12, it is leaked that the system is preparing to translate apps automatically to your language.
The XDA Developers team discovers that interesting changes are coming in Android 12 regarding the translation of app texts. We are not talking about accessing instant translators from within the apps themselves, but that the operating system will be able to offer us the app in our language if the app does not arrive properly translated.
This, which will allow many people to access apps in different languages even if the developer has not provided a multilanguage mode for them (we are not only talking about apps in English but also in French, German, Chinese…), has been hunted in the source code of Android 12 through a series of parameters already detected but not yet active.
This function of translating apps instantly has already been offered with applications such as AllTrans, which is part of the Xposed Framework ecosystem, but now approaches the operating system natively. As noted, the code snippets embedded in Android 12 are still too vague to know exactly how this instant app translation feature will work, but it may be a matter of time before its operation is unveiled in more depth.
