Instagram Stories Gains Built-In Text Translation Feature

Instagram today updated its Instagram Stories feature with a new translate option that is designed to automatically translate text in a Story.

instagram stories translation
Instagram Stories are Instagram's ephemeral content posting option, with each Story vanishing after 24 hours. Automatic translation is able to translate text into more than 90 languages, but there is no audio translation option.

In any Story that has a language that is not the user's native language, there will be a "See Translation" banner that can be tapped to get a translation.

Instagram has provided translate tools for standard Instagram posts since 2016, and the new feature means translation options are available across most Instagram media types.

Mental health pro tip: I stopped using Insta, Twitter, and snap. I use FB to see photos of my family. Nothing more.

And two days ago I deleted you tube from my phone, an app that I have used since my first iPhone in 2008.

I don’t even connect to play idiots online with my Xbox. Single player nice.

Life is better off line.
Great, now get rid of your iPhone

Facebook falls into the dislike category on here. Hate is saved for Google, apparently.
