The translation of instant messaging for Microsoft Teams iOS and Android apps was one of the most in-demand features on the Microsoft Teams UserVoice page. Based on user feedback, the company began working on the feature last year and finally, after more than a year, the company has completed the development and is now rolling out the instant messaging translation feature to Microsoft Teams iOS and Android apps.
On the Microsoft Teams UserVoice page, the company has announced that the long-awaited instant message translation feature is now available to Teams users on both Android and iOS. The feature is powered by Microsoft Translation services and allows users to translate channel messages into the language of their choice in a different language.
To translate, hold down the message and tap Translate. To restore a translated message to its original language, press and hold the message and tap View Original (language).
To set the language to which you want messages translated, tap Settings > Translation, and then choose the language you want.
The feature should be available through an app update, so check the app changelog once you’ve received an update.
