InstagramInstagram has announced that it is developing a text translation feature for its flagship app that will roll out in the coming month.

Once live, users will see a new "See Translation" button beneath photos and user profiles which will automatically translate comments, captions, and bios into the language chosen in the app's settings.

The machine translation feature will support 24 languages to begin with, but the option won't show on older comments or those it doesn't recognize the language of.


Twitter and Facebook have offered automatic translation features for a while now, so the introduction of the feature brings the service in line with the other big social networks.

Instagram, which is owned by Facebook, has been busy tweaking its platform recently, with a new logo and a redesigned app among the changes.

Earlier this week, it announced that the photo-based social network is now used by over 500 million people, with 300 million using the app every day and 80 percent of users living outside the U.S.

If you're not interested in the article, you don't have to read it. But other people may be.
But Telos101's wife would have discovered this new feature when she updated. As the report says, "Twitter and Facebook have offered automatic translation features for a while now", so I don't understand what makes this update any more newsworthy than thousands of other updates made every day. It all seems a bit arbitrary.

I recently watched a TV ad where the company would list their social media and amongst those couple icons the Instagram stood out - not in a good way.
It looks absolutely out of place and whilst the old one probably isn't really viable anymore in detail, I think removing the details and keeping the color scheme and slightly modernizing it would have done the job perfectly.
