Google recently updated its Google Translate app on Android and its Gmail app on iOS.

The core structure and UI design of both apps remain almost unchanged but Google has added a few extra features to help enhance the overall functionality of these apps. Gmail users on iOS for starters can now jump between messages by swiping horizontally across their iPhone or iPad displays, which save time since you users don’t need to close an email and return to the home screen before they can see the next message.

The updated Gmail app can also now support up to five accounts. Users can also scan their inbox and folders using a contact’s name or a specific term using the app’s search bar. Moreover, users can now organize a group of messages simultaneously using the Action bar. Lastly, the update also brings the ability to attach multiple items in an email, including a drawing that the user can sketch right inside the app.

As for Google Translate on Android, Google is bringing offline language support for fifty languages including French, Spanish, Chinese and Arabic to name a few. However, it’s good to note that the results from these offline translations might not be as comprehensive compared to those translations made using a data connection. Users make use of the offline translation function by first downloading language packages from within the app.

Both apps are already available in the Apple App Store and on Android’s Google Play.
