Adding bots to your chat list

Google Chat can help you with quick language translation. All you need to do is chat with one of our bots. To use a bot, add it to your Chat list and send it a message. You can also use the bots to translate a conversation with a group of your friends. You can do this by inviting a bot to a group chat with a friend. There is more information on each type of bot below.

Translation Bots

Translation Bots will translate your messages from one language to another. These bots are named using two-letter language abbreviations formated as '[from language]2[to language@bot.talk.google.com,' and all available combinations are listed in the table below. For example, if you send 'Hello' to en2es@bot.talk.google.com (English to Spanish), it will respond with 'Hola.'

You can send a chat to these bots to get your messages translated:
