Google have had their Google Assistant interpreter on select products such as the Pixel Buds but in the next few weeks Interpreter Mode will be rolled out to Google Home devices and Smart Displays.

Google stated the feature will arrive on Google Home devices "over the next few weeks".

Google says Interpreter Mode will work on normal Google Home speakers as well, but without the added benefit of a written translation.
