Samsung is ready to discontinue its language translation service S Translator, on December 1, 2020.
S Translator was once as soon as one of the vital important “S-something” services that Samsung offered between 2012 and 2013 as it sought to standout throughout the smartphone market by means of bundling as many choices as it might in its then flagship smartphones such for the reason that legendary Samsung Galaxy SIII and the venerable Samsung Galaxy S4. The equivalent choices would, in following months, trickle down to as many Samsung smartphones in a position to accommodating them as possible.
The efficacy of the likes of S Translator, however, has at all times been in question. In particular given that Samsung’s partners like Google and Microsoft have at all times offered additional loyal alternatives.
The cross out of S Translator means that Samsung consumers interested by sticking with the company’s services or not interested by putting in place however each and every different app, will have to make do with Bixby which has translation services baked in. For those who are open to exploring the quite a lot of alternatives to be had, Google Translate and Microsoft Translator are just about no-brainers.
The discontinuation of S Translator continues a trend we’ve spotted for a while now that, this 365 days, started with the highest of life of S Voice, Samsung’s former voice assistant.
