Instagram, finally added support for three new languages to it app including, Hebrew, Farsi, and Arabic. Although there were already 24 languages available on the platform for you to post and comment but all the 24 languages are “left-to-right” languages like English. This is the first time Instagram is adding “right-to-left” languages support to the platform. The addition of “right-to-left language” functionality is aimed to provide a better-written communication to the Arabic-speaking users.

Starting from today, all the tree language support is available on the Android mobile app of Instagram first. In order to switch the language support in the app just go to the app settings, tap the language and select the desired language from the given list. With the addition of these languages, the company ended the support for short language translation. This means you won't be able to automatically translate any post available in an unfamiliar language to the language you use in-app.
