The Future tense of хотеть

My “Barron’s 501 Russian Verbs” states that the verb хотеь is not used in the future tense of the imperfective aspect. When I feed Google Translate “ They will want ” I get back “ они захотят ” which is what I expected. However, GT tells me that “ They will want more food ” translates as “ они будут хотеть больше еды ”. I realize the GT sometimes makes mistakes. Is it making a mistake in this instance?

Thank you
