Gmail for Android and iOS devices has finally launched a native translation capability that detects a language and automatically translates the email. The feature was an important part of the desktop version and is currently compatible with 100 languages.

Google announced the exciting news on its Workspace Updates blog, saying it’s a “requested feature” for mobile users. Previously, if users wanted to translate an email, they had to copy and paste the content into Google Translate, or take a screenshot and upload it to Google Lens.

To translate a message on mobile, users click the “Translate” option in the three-dot overflow menu in the top-right corner of an email. Users can choose their output language in the settings so that a prompt appears when an email’s content doesn’t match the “Gmail display language.” They can also opt out of translation if they don’t want the banner to appear for a particular language, which can be useful for people who speak multiple languages.

The translation integration will gradually roll out to Android users over the next two weeks. It will be launched on iOS devices from August 21.
