Google is currently working on an Android app which is known as ‘Relate’ to help people suffering from speech impairments

Tech giant Google has stated that it is currently working on an Android app known as 'Relate', and it will help people suffering from speech impairments. The ultimate aim of Relate is to help people who have difficulty in speaking to communicate and interact with people and Google Assistant more easily.

According to Google, the app is designed with the help of over a million speech samples that participants have recorded during its research process. The app is still being developed, and it is currently not available for users to download. Google is searching for English-speaking testers in regions like Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and the US to experiment with the working capability of the app and provide feedback.

Google will be asking testing the app by asking users to record a set of phrases. Later, these phrases will be used by the app to automatically learn how to understand speech patterns and provide access to the app's three major features: Listen, Repeat, and Assistant.
