Gmail on desktop has supported translation for many years now and that too in over 100 languages. But the same functionality was absent on the mobile version. That changes now as Google has finally announced native translation capabilities to Gmail for Android and iOS.

The native translation is easy to use on both Android and iOS. If you receive a message in a language that's different from your " Mail display language" in your account settings, you'll notice a new banner saying "Translate to," which you can tap to make the translation happen. To see the original message again, tap on "Show original." If you want Gmail to automatically translate messages in a specific language in the future, tap on "Automatically translate" for that language.

Translations in Gmail for Android will start rolling out today, while the feature will make it to iOS from August 21. It is available to all Google Workspace users and users with personal Google Accounts.
