According to a report, YouTube will soon make it easier for users to browse through videos by automatically translating video titles, descriptions, and captions into native languages.


This new feature is powered by Google’s own Translate app. A few users have spotted the feature enabled through a server-side change.

The feature is expected to roll out soon but the translations to only Portuguese and Turkish have been spotted so far.

The first to report on the new translation feature enabled for some users by YouTube was Android Police and according to the report, some users were able to see video titles, descriptions, and captions from English to Portuguese and English to Turkish.

The report further said that the feature is available for both YouTube Web and mobile users.


YouTube recently started allowing content creators on its platform to change their names and profile pictures through YouTube Studio, without having to change the details on their Google accounts. Apparently, this was a highly requested feature from content creators and has started rolling out from April 22. Content creators with a verified badge will have to reapply for it after changing their details on YouTube.
