Samsung to bring Galaxy A AI-powered Live Translate feature to WhatsApp calls


Samsung recently announced that its Live Translate feature will soon support third-party applications. Now, a tipster has suggested that it could work for WhatsApp calls as well. According to claims on a social media platform, real-time language translation capabilities could soon come to compatible Samsung smartphones via Galaxy AI – Samsung’s suite of artificial intelligence (AI) features that it announced in January. The development comes amid confirmation that the suite will be free to use until 2025.

Live translation on WhatsApp

According to a post on X (formerly Twitter) by tipster Ice Universe, Galaxy AI will bring support for real-time language translation in WhatsApp calls. The feature is reported to come via the One UI 6.1.1 update and may work on select Galaxy smartphones. This is based on a previous confirmation by Samsung that it will enable third-party application support.

According to the tipster, Samsung may announce this feature at the Galaxy Unpacked event that is scheduled to take place in Paris on July 10. At the event, Samsung may reportedly debut the One UI 6.1.1 update for its Galaxy smartphones. The update is expected to come with the Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Z Flip 6 smartphones that are expected to be launched at the event. The confirmation of Galaxy AI in the Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Galaxy Z Flip 6 matches an alleged marketing image that surfaced online in June.

The Live Translate feature on Samsung smartphones works through on-device processing. Samsung claims that user data is stored locally on the device rather than being sent via a server. Although the South Korean tech giant did not explicitly name the third-party apps that the feature will support, apps like Telegram and Google Maps could be part of the list.

According to Won-Joon Choi, executive vice president for Samsung’s Mobile Experience Business and head of the Mobile R&D office, Galaxy AI on foldable smartphones will “unlock all new possibilities”. In addition to Live Translate, the AI ​​suite also includes other features including Chat Assist, Interpreter Mode, Circle to Search, Summarization, Note Assist, and Transcript Assist.
