The internet contains many a rabbit hole you can fall into and there is no shortage of them on YouTube. So, if you find yourself sitting through clip after clip from a Japanese restaurant vlogger and are wondering what the comments are saying — you can only presume they’re generally nicer than on certain other videos — you can now translate them without having to leave the page!

YouTube viewers on mobile now have access to instant translation for any comment not in the user’s native language by tapping a button at the bottom of the message. Users can flip back to the comment’s original language by tapping the button again.

Comment translation button design in experimental phase.

We first reported on the feature while it was in the experimental phase and exclusively available to YouTube Premium subscribers back in August. The feature started appearing in its revised format a few days ago prior to today’s official announcement from the Team YouTube Twitter account.
