WeChat, one of the most popular instant messaging apps, has received a major update in the form of v5.3. The new WeChat update adds message translation feature for Android users. The feature was initially released to iOS users last month. The updated WeChat app for Android platform is available on the Google Play Store.
The newest upgrade ensures you can stay on top of all your messages with translation service, and even gives you the ability to translate text between you and your new international friends. WeChat is filled with top-notch features, creating a fun and social experience with even safer security measures, making your social life out of this world and even cooler in every way.
Users simply need to long-press on a message and tap the arrow icon on the right-hand side to activate the tool. Once you hit ‘Translate,' the text will be converted into your native language.
"Chat with your buddies in Mexico, Indonesia, France and South Africa with extra ease, by simply typing in your chosen language and let WeChat be your personal translator. There will never be a dull moment on WeChat, with over 20 languages available at your fingertips. Who knew talking to people around the world could be so easy?"
Other than the message translation feature, the WeChat update for Android also brings more privacy features to group chats with ‘Groups with Password' feature. Selected participants must enter a secret 4-digit code before accessing your group conversation, allowing for a safer and more controlled group chat.
