If you thought you’ve seen it all, think again. Microsoft’s Skype has recently released Skype Translator, a current feature that provides voice-automated translations for its users. This new feature will transform the digital communications network for both millennials and corporations alike; no confused overseas calls as you twiddle your pen at the back of the room. We all do that, right?

Currently, the software offers voice translations in six languages (English, German, French, Italian, Spanish and Mandarin) and 50 languages for it’s instant messaging services. When users choose to speak over video calls, the software can then input your conversation and deliver an automated voice translation to the receiving party, nearly instantaneously.
