Instant camera translation in Google Translate is getting a lot better

Google has just announced a handful of improvements for the real-time camera-based translation in the Google Translate app. In addition to supporting 60 new languages, you can now also translate between combinations that don't include English.

Thankfully, the manufacturer is announcing the TicWatch Pro 4G/LTE, which builds up on its predecessor's specs and adds 4G functionality on top, confirming the leak we reported last month.

For a while, the site didn't let you edit saved passwords, but now it does. And that same functionality can be accessed inside Chrome on Android and desktop (and possibly other platforms too), but it requires a trick now. Soon though, it'll be implemented natively.
