Travelling to another region or country makes Google Maps one of the most important apps to have on your phone. The app is set to get even better now with translations available in 50 languages. The new feature will let tourists listen to the name of a place or landmark out loud in the desired language to make it easier for them to get there.

Google Maps

Landmarks will have a small speaker icon next to them. Clicking on the icon will read out the location and even offer more translations in case you need a longer conversation with the local you are seeking help from. However, for the latter, you must have Google translate installed on your device too.
