Microsoft Edge is testing a new dynamic for automatic translation on Android.
While the browser already has a translator when we open a web page on mobile, it is testing a similar system to the desktop version. Microsoft Edge is testing automatic translation on Android. As happens in Google Chrome, users will be able to configure the browser to activate translation when they open a web page in certain languages.
If we take a look at the Edge settings on Android, we will see that it has the “Translate” option to enable it or not, depending on whether we want the web browser to translate web pages in other languages. If we enable it, we will see that this option is automatically activated when it detects another language. But with the new dynamic that Microsoft is testing, it is about bringing the experience of the web version to Android.
That is, users will be able to specify which language will remain as default, and add the languages they want the browser to translate when they open a web page. So they will be able to choose between “offer translation” or “never translate”.
So this dynamic will give more freedom to the user to decide how to implement automatic translation according to their needs when using the browser from their mobile device. This new feature is being tested in Microsoft Edge Dev, so it still needs to go through some stages before it is implemented in the stable version of the browser.
But if you want to test its dynamics, you can download this version of Microsoft Edge from Google Play, just as with the Canary version. You will find some new Edge features on Android that are in testing and that seek to boost its dynamics by bringing some of the latest features of the browser in its web version.
