Announced at F8 earlier this year, Facebook Messenger can now automatically translate between Spanish and English, with more languages to come.
M, the Facebook Messenger AI bot can now translate your conversation. The M translations join the existing M suggestions features that already help you generate quick replies, polls and other conversation starters.
Right now, M only translates between Spanish and English but Facebook confirmes other languages will be added soon. The feature is already available in the US and Mexico.
It understands when a message is written in a language which is not the recipient’s default app language and offers to translate it. M will then show a pop-up that offers to immediately translate all messages from that specific recipient.
Translations are a meaningful addition to Messenger and Facebook’s mission to help people connect better.
