Microsoft today announced that the Skype Translator preview technology will be coming to the Skype for Windows desktop app. Microsoft is targeting the end of summer 2015 for the roll-out to begin.
Last month we made it easier to obtain the Skype Translator preview by removing the sign-up requirement. Since then, we have seen a 300% increase in Skype Translator usage! We are thrilled with the positive response from around the world, and especially thankful to ALL of the early adopters who downloaded the application, and use it every day! Remember: Skype Translator uses machine learning, so the more people use the technology, the better the experience for everyone!
Microsoft is looking to expand the number of languages available on this translator feature in the coming months.
