Are you wondering to use conversation mode in the translate app? In iOS 14, Apple launched a new Translate app that’s is built to provide real-time translations for 11 different languages. It can translate from and to Arabic, English (US and UK), mainland Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Russian, Korean, Portuguese, and Spanish.

The Translate app has an easy-to-use interface that enables you to choose languages to translate to and from. You can then type the text that you like to be translated. Or else you can say what you like to translate when the app listens. The app can also speak translations out loud so that you can also get the proper abbreviation or play the translation to someone who speaks a various language.

Also, the app has a clear Conversation Mode that listens to both languages and can translate them in real-time. Come let’s check how to use Conversation Mode on an iPhone.
