Gmail has received a bunch of nifty features in the recent past that make the overall experience much better. Now, Google is adding the translate feature to the Gmail app. This translation feature has already been available on the web client for quite a long time, and now it has arrived for both Android and iOS.
The Gmail translate feature is rolling out via server-side update, meaning that no user input is required. As per 9To5Google, the change is visible with the Gmail app version 2023.07.23.x. While the update is said to be rolling out widely, it isn't live for all users. You can check whether the feature is available for you by verifying if the message body shows an overflow menu with the ‘Translate' button.
Clicking on the ‘Translate' button shows a banner with the settings gear icon along with the list of languages that you can select other than the ‘Detect language.' Using this Gmail translate feature, you can translate an email into over 100 languages. In case you dismiss the translate banner on your email, it will re-appear the next time you open that email.
Users can disable this setting by accepting the ‘Don't Translate (Language) Again' prompt or turning it off from the translation settings menu. Previously, you could translate the message body by selecting all text and choosing the ‘Translate' option from the options.
