Google Go, a lightweight app that helps you access information online even with an unstable connection is now available globally. Earlier this year at its I/O conference, Google showcased Lens in Google Go, a way for you to read, translate and search the words you see by using your camera.
When you find text, you’d like help with, open Lens and point your camera at it to hear the words read out loud to you, translate them, or both. And as many of us like listening to content instead of reading on a website, Google Go also offers an AI-powered read-out-loud feature that lets you listen to any web page, with words highlighted as they’re read so you can follow along.
At just over 7MB, the Google Go is light on your phone storage too. And while browsing, if you lose connectivity when you are using Google Go, the app will remember your place and even retrieve your search results for you once you’re back online.
Starting today, Google Go is available on the Google Play Store globally for all Android devices using Lollipop and above.
The search giant is also testing a feature that will soon allow Android users to sign in to a few of its Chrome services using just your fingerprint without using a password.
