Circle to Search Will Soon Translate Text on the Display

Google recently rolled out the Circle to Search feature for the older Pixel 6 and Pixel 7a models. It also announced that the AI feature will be translated into real-time in the coming days. It seems that the feature is now rolling out to some users already.

All the user has to do is trigger Circle to Search and click on the new translate button. The translation happens in line, and the translated text is instantly displayed on the screen.
