Have you heard? The messaging experience is getting an upgrade! Messages is still in early access and is not yet available for all Seesaw for Schools users. For more info about Messages, tap here.

Teachers and families can now translate Seesaw content into over 55 languages!
If a note, caption, comment, announcement, or message is written in a language that is different from the language of a family's or teacher’s device, a “See Translation” option appears below the post. Tap “See Translation” and Seesaw automatically translates any text into your native language. Students do not have access to this feature.
- Translation works for notes, captions, comments, announcements, and messages.
- Available on all platforms (iOS, Android, Kindle, Web)
- "See Translation" only appears if the note/caption/comment/message is written in a language that is different from the language of the viewer's device or computer. This means if the family has their computer settings set to a foreign language.
- "See Translation" only appears for teachers and families, not students.
Additionally, our family invite letter is now available in 10 different languages on the web through the "Invite Families" button!
