A day after Instagram reached 500 million user base, the photo and video sharing app announced it would be adding a feature to help its users to better understand and communicate with each other.
To cater to the needs of growing Instagram community, the app in a post on Wednesday said it is adding a translation tool to its app from next month.
“In the coming month, you’ll see a translation button on feed stories and profile bios written in languages different from your own,” said the filter-driven app.

With the help of the new translation tool, Instagram said people will “soon be able to understand the full story of a moment, no matter what language they speak.”
Given the fact that the translation feature was already available on its parent company, Facebook, it was probably just a matter of time.

Although the Facebook-owned application said it is rolling out the feature, tech website Engadget claimed they were already seeing the button.
