Tech fans who have been using Pixel smartphones will be having a great week.

Previously, it read "Google Translate on Google Pixel Buds is only available on Pixel phones". Google says that on October 18 - the day the Pixel 3 launches - it will add external mic support to all Pixel phones - that includes old and new generations.

Furthermore, the publication writes that this change was expected as Korean electronic giant, LG's newly released LG Tone SE Neckbuds and the USB Type-C headphones that are included in the box with the newly launched Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL headphones both come with the real-time translate feature. 2017's Pixel 2 was still regarded as one of the best camera smartphones, even with Apple and Samsung rolling out new optical advancements for enhanced photography performance.

The stock camera app on Pixel phones only supports the use of the built-in microphone while recording videos.

News of the wider access to Google's real-time translation was picked up by Droid Life.

To improve the user experience, Google has recently added 13 new languages, including Hindi, Bengali, Tamil, Arabic, Danish, Dutch, French etc which the Google Translate can read and translate into other languages which can be understood by the users. DxOMark is an established organization trusted for its reviews of consumer-level camera products.
