Instagram has rolled out a built-in translation feature to Stories, allowing users to automatically translate any text that isn’t in their native language.
Stories differ from Instagram’s usual feed posts in that they disappear after 24 hours. Creators and influencers often use them as a more casual representation of themselves, to showcase behind-the-scenes content or their daily lives.
According to MacRumors, now, any time text appears on a Story that isn’t in a user’s original language, it will be automatically translated from more than 90 different languages. However, there isn’t an audio translation option, so you won’t be able to translate what your favorite foreign influencers are saying just yet.
In Stories that feature translations, a “See Translation” banner will pop up, prompting the user to tap on it to view the translated text. While Instagram has had built-in translation tools for feed posts since 2016, this is the first time it’s coming to Stories.
