Facebook Messenger can now automatically translate messages from Spanish to English and vice versa, media reports said.
“‘M’ — the Facebook Messenger AI bot can now translate your conversation. The ‘M’ translations join the existing M suggestions features that already help you generate quick replies, polls and other conversation starters,” tech website wersm.com reported late on Sunday.
Originally announced at Facebook F8, the feature, called “M’s” translation suggestions, debuted as one of the social networking giant’s new tools for businesses and used to only work for chats between buyers and sellers in Marketplace.
F8 is an annual conference held by Facebook, intended for developers and entrepreneurs who build products and services around the website.
“It understands when a message is written in a language which is not the recipient’s default app language and offers to translate it. ‘M’ will then show a pop-up that offers to immediately translate all messages from that specific recipient,” the report added.
The messaging app and platform by Facebook would support translation in other languages soon and the feature is already available in the US and Mexico.
The social network believes the feature would enable people to connect in a way that is seamless and natural — it’s definitely much easier to switch on auto-translate than to jump between Messenger and a translator app again and again, according to Engadget. (IANS)

On the opening day of the wrestling competition, Ravi Kumar defeated Bulgaria's Georgi Vangelov 14-4 on technical superiority to reach the last-four in the men's 57kg category, while compatriot Deepak Punia overcame China's Zushen Lin 6-3 on points to advance to the semifinals.
Ravi Kumar will take on Nurislam Sanayev of Kazakhstan in the last-four, while Punia will be up against David Morris Taylor of the USA.
Earlier, Ravi Kumar had won his opening-round bout by technical superiority against Colombia's Oscar Tigreros to secure a quarterfinal spot. Competing in the Round-of-16 bout against the Colombian wrestler, the 23-year-old Ravi Kumar, who is making his Olympic debut, showed no nerves as he dominated the bout to win by technical superiority (13-2).
Ravi Kumar landed attack after attack and went 13-2 up, winning the bout by technical superiority with minutes to spare. In wrestling, building up a 10-point lead over the opponent results in a victory by technical superiority.
India's 86kg freestyle wrestler Deepak Punia showed no signs of the niggle that had forced him to pull out of the Poland Open Ranking Series in Warsaw in June, as he defeated Nigeria's Ekerekeme Agiomor on technical superiority to secure a quarterfinal berth.
He got his Olympic campaign to a fine start as he was in control from the start of the bout and hardly ever allowed his Nigerian opponent any room to maneuver his moves, finally winning with a 12-1 on technical superiority.
Punia, who had also suffered an elbow injury just before the Games, was slow at the start but came into his own as the bout progressed, inflicting takedowns at regular intervals to earn points.
The Indian wrestler eased into a 4-1 lead at the break and extended his lead comfortably in the second period.
Punia, the silver medallist from the 2019 world wrestling championships, then set up a clash with China's Lin Zushen in the quarterfinals and defeated him 6-3.
