With its first update of 2023, Telegram is making it easier to communicate with people who might speak a different language than you. Best of all, it’s available to everyone, not just Premium users.

If someone sends a message in a language other than the one they set as their default, a translation button will pop up in the interface, Engadget reports.

Tapping it will translate the messages. Premium users will also have access to the feature in groups and channels.

The rollout has started, but it will take a while before everyone gets it. It is not clear how many languages the feature supports.
