This is built into instant camera translations, which produces more accurate and natural translations and reduces errors by between 55pc and 85pc in certain language pairs, according to Google. Google is now adding support for 60 additional languages for the instant camera feature, including Hindi, apart from increasing accuracy by nearly 85 percent.

Instant Translate modes have been promoted to the app's main interface, so on launch you can now easily select between Instant, Scan or Import. However, when your device is connected to the internet, the feature uses that connection to produce higher quality translations.

With today's update, Google is introducing support for 60 more languages, expanding the app's support to a total of 88 languages. You can check out a full list of which languages support which feature here. The new look has all three camera translation features conveniently located on the bottom of the app. It will allow users to recognise the language before translating it. In simple words, you can now translate Bengali int Hindi instead of English or Japanese into French and so on.
