The world’s leading search engine platform, Google, is whipping up a dandy new feature called Circle to Search, which has already been quietly rolled out to selected users across the globe despite Google’s pseudonymous stand. The new special element is aimed at helping users discern text on their screens with ease. According to eagle-eyed Android analyst Mishaal Rahman, a fortuitous bunch of users have already stumbled upon a real-time translation tool for on-screen text.

Don’t jump the gun yet! Google hasn’t vaunted about this feature’s rollout just yet. It seems like only a handful of users are in on the secret beneficiaries for now. Let’s dig into the meat and potatoes of this feature and how it ticks.

Circle to Search is set to sprinkle some translation spell that would be cast upon the words that you find difficult to untangle and often put you in a rabbit hole. Google recently served up the Circle to Search feature on older models like Pixel 6 and Pixel 7a, hinting that the AI magic will soon include real-time translation. And guess what? It looks like some users are already getting a sip of it.

All you have to do is offer Circle to Search a tap and hit up that shiny new translate button. Like magic, the text mutates before your eyes, popping up in a language you’d chosen or the language you get it like a bag of chocolates.

This greenhorn works a lot like Google Translate, swapping out the text on your screen for an easier-to-digest translation. By bundling it with Circle to Search, Google is making it a piece of cake for folks to get what’s what. But here’s the curveball rolled against you: you’ll need a Pixel or Samsung device that’s in on the action.
