"Solved" is usually meant to mean that no more progress can be made, not that we have 100% accuracy.

I would suggest that for major, well represented languages it will be hard to make progress. So yes, telling if some news story is in English probably is solved.

Dealing with short texts, especially using code switching and non standard language is far more challenging.
