Outlook users will have access to a new translation feature starting this month. This feature will allow users to easily translate words, phrases, and entire messages within their email platform, thanks to the prompt, which will be automatically available. Moreover, users can choose to have Outlook automatically translate incoming messages in foreign languages into their preferred language.

The ID 164486 feature has been included in the official roadmap as of August 31, 2023. This feature will be available to all Outlook users on various platforms, focusing on the web version.

The rollout for this update is set to commence in September 2023, impacting Outlook users on cloud instances, including DoD, GCC High, and GCC. This release falls under the General Availability phase, making it accessible to a wider audience of users.

With the new translation feature, users can easily understand and respond to messages in different languages, breaking down language barriers. It simplifies cross-cultural communication, making it easier for individuals and businesses to connect and collaborate globally, ultimately fostering better communication and understanding among users.

Microsoft has been actively releasing new features for Outlook via Microsoft 365 Roadmap. Recently, Microsoft announced an upcoming update for the Outlook user interface that will impact both the Windows app and the web version.
