Samsung on Thursday announced that it is working on an artificial intelligence (AI) “Live Call Translate” feature, which it will bring with the latest Galaxy AI phones to give users a personal translator whenever they need it.
“Coming early next year, Galaxy AI will bring us closer to a world where some of the most common barriers to social connection dissolve, and communication is easier and more productive than ever,” Samsung said.
According to the company, Galaxy AI is a comprehensive mobile AI experience powered by both on-device AI developed at Samsung and cloud-based AI enabled by the firms' open collaborations with like-minded industry leaders.
As the Live Translate Call feature will be integrated into the native call feature, the hassle of having to use third-party apps will be gone.
With this feature, the audio and text translations will appear in real-time as users speak, making calling someone who speaks another language about as simple as turning on closed captions when they stream a show, the company mentioned.
“Galaxy AI is our most comprehensive intelligence offering to date, and it will change how we think about our phones forever,” Wonjoon Choi, EVP and Head of R&D, Mobile eXperience Business, said in a statement.
The company also said that Galaxy AI will transform users' everyday mobile experience with the peace of mind they count on from Galaxy security and privacy.
