Instagram will add a new translation feature next month

Instagram is on a roll this week.

After hitting half a billion users just a few days ago, the photo sharing company has introduced a translation feature that is set to be released later this month.

In the near future, Instagram users will be able to translate posts and bios into 24 different languages. When it arrives, you’ll be able to see a “See translation” button underneath posts written in a foreign but supported language.

This is functionality Facebook already supports, though older comments may not work with the feature. Other social networks such as Twitter currently offer this feature as well, which is proving to be more useful in an increasingly connected world.

Just a few days ago, Instagram announced that it hit 500 million users, 300 million of which use the platform every day.

While Instagram claimed that this feature will be rolling out by the end of the month, some people are already able to access it. . The company announced the update in an Instagram post this morning.

“The Instagram community has grown faster and become more global than we ever imagined. And we’re excited that you’ll soon be able to understand the full story of a moment, no matter what language you speak.”
