Let WhatsApp take care, because its competitors are innovating more and more in the instant messenger market. The novelty this time comes from WeChat, which now has a text translator.
The feature for now only works on the iPhone app, but it will probably be taken to Android as well. To access the translator, just press the text received for a while and the option appears.
O The Next Web, who tested the feature in languages like Japanese and Chinese, stressed that Google Translate’s experience is similar.
