    Google has a new app for animal lovers so they can understand what their pets are saying Translate for Animals. Thought I would let everyone know.

    I thought this had to be an April Fool's joke, but I was wrong - it does exist! The comments alone are worth the read!

    Definitely one of Google's many April Fools jokes.

    And I have it installed but it's no longer in the Market for me after the 2.1 update. Is everyone that can't see it on 2.1 one way or the other? Just curious...

    It is still in the app store. The link still works or has been fixed since the time it wasn't.

    Google Translate for Animals

    Perhaps it is only available on certain networks, certain countries, etc. Anyway, I just re-installed it and it works fine. Not sure if this truly is a gag or a serious attempt. We know that certain animals make certain noises that mean certain things, like when a cat hisses or a dog growls. Those are not really difficult to translate. It's not a far stretch to believe that Google has used their voice translation algorithm to include animals.

    But damn it seems so unlikely...

    But as just a gag factor it's awesome, Google has a reputation so it makes it believable even if it isn't.

    Yeah, I just used the QR code on Androlib's site and it did come up. Oh well, with all our cats it would've been nice to know what they want. :p
