Instagram app now has Hebrew, Farsi, Arabic language options

Languages written from right to left are having an Instagram moment. 

The photo-and-video social app now supports languages read from right to left, including Hebrew, Farsi, and Arabic. The new languages will first be available on Android devices.

Instagram already has more than two dozen language options including Chinese, Greek, Turkish, and Swedish, but those are are all read left to right, like English. Now the app will be compatible with  languages written and read in the other direction.

Posts have already had Arabic and other right-to-left languages in the captions and on hashtags, but now the language settings will include that option within the framework of the app, so phrases like “Stories” and “Likes” will be in those languages.

 

 Welcome to Instagram, Arabic, Farsi, and Hebrew.
