Google Translate will now automatically switch Gboard language to improve text entry

On Android, Google Translate has been upgraded with a really nice efficient and effective change that sees Gboard automatically adjust languages to improve text typing.

When necessary, the globe icon shows to switch back. Gboard returns to your default language when you close the translation panel. Previously, after selecting a new language pairing, you’d just type text in the device’s default language.

This functionality is available on a Pixel and Tab S8 (both Android 12) using Google Translate 6.33 with Gboard 11.6. (which is currently in beta). It didn’t show up on phones running 6.30 and 11.5, respectively.
