YouTube is expanding its latest engagement tools of Comment Translation and Smart Replies. The new translation tool relies on Google Translation to let users translate comments in the app, whereas Smart Replies provides response suggestions to assist users in their interaction with each other in-stream.

YouTube has announced that the Translate button is now available on mobile and offers translation in 100 languages. Although Google Translate does not provide completely accurate translations, its ability is still adequate enough to help people make sense of text displayed in foreign languages.
The expansion of Smart Replies means that more users will be able to access comment reply suggestions. The response options are provided based on the comment and the most common replies given to similar comments across the app. You need to tap once on one of the options displayed to use it as your reply, and can also edit it. The tool could be particularly helpful to creators who can rely on it to save time when replying to a large number of comments. Additionally, YouTube is running a test of Smart Replies on its Studio app as well.
