With all the money it’s making, Google surely has enough to invest in unusual research projects, like the one which now gives us Google Translate for animals, a new Android application that has just been announced by the company.
The Google Translate for animals app is simple to use. Just run it, record what an animal has to say, and then read the translation, or listen to it.
The new Android app features a drop down menu that lets you choose from a list of various animals, including cat, dog, hamster, guinea pig, regular pig, rabbit, bird, chicken, sheep, horse, donkey and tortoise. I’ve asked a Google rep if support for giraffe, elephant, crocodile, kangaroo or ostrich will be added, and he said they’re restlessly working to make the app compatible with all the animals in the world.
A video preview of Google Translate for animals can be watched below:
You can download Google Translate for Animals via Android Market, or by scanning the QR code found here – and yes, this is a really nice April Fools’ Day prank from Google (although the app really exists).
