Recently, the social networking and instant messaging app made its message translation available for its Android users. To use the translate message feature, users need to long-press a message and then tap the arrow icon on the right-hand side to activate the tool, just like the WeChat app for iOS devices. The feature was originally rolled out to iOS users in May.
Other than the message translation feature, the WeChat app for Android also got a new password protect feature for group chats, the ability to tag favourite messages for faster searches, and the ability to select multiple messages and add them to Favourites.
