  • Tap the flag icon of the language you're going to use before each phrase.
  • Speak using the language that corresponds to the flag icon you selected.
  • Try to speak in short sentences.

To communicate in dialog mode, do the following:
  1. Tap at the bottom of the screen.
  2. Configure access permissions.

    When launching dialog mode for the first time, you'll see the buttons Allow microphone access and Allow speech recognition on the welcome screen. Tap either of them to open the app settings and then enable the Microphone and Speech recognition. If the buttons don't appear at the initial launch, it means you already allowed the app to access your mic and perform speech recognition.

  3. Select the languages you and the other user will be communicating in.

    To change your language, tap the language's name or the icon under it and choose your language.

  4. To start a dialog, tap the flag icon of the language you're going to use and speak. You'll see the translation on the screen.

    The recording will stop automatically. To stop recording your speech manually, tap the flag icon again.

    Phrases in your native tongue are displayed in a smaller font, while phrases in the target language are displayed in a larger font. To swap languages, tap on the language selection screen.
