Samsung expands Live Translate to third-party apps and teases unique Galaxy AI for its next foldable
AI is all the rage these days, popping up everywhere you look. In 2024, those two letters are getting a serious workout on our keyboards, and for good reason. The world of AI, especially in mobile tech, is evolving at lightning speed. And now, Samsung has news about its Galaxy AI.

Galaxy AI on the Galaxy S24 series was only the beginning

Introduced with the Galaxy S24 series, Galaxy AI is Samsung’s suite of AI features. Now, the tech giant is taking it up a notch by expanding Live Translate to third-party messaging apps, allowing support for voice calls. This means you can stay connected with friends or colleagues on your favorite apps, chatting in multiple languages.

In other words, soon you might be able to use the Live Translate feature on apps like WhatsApp or Telegram, assuming those apps are included in Samsung's plans. The Korean tech giant hasn't shared details about compatibility yet.

Plus, since this feature is built into the company's on-device AI language translation model, users can enjoy seamless communication without worrying about privacy issues or personal data being shared outside their phones when using Live Translate.
