Android Lets You Set Different Languages Per App for a Truly Multilingual Experience — Here's How It Works

Android lets you set different languages ​​for each app for a truly multilingual experience — here’s how it works «Android:: Gadget Hacks

If you want or need to use an app in a different language than your phone’s primary language, now your Android phone makes it a simple process.

In the Android 13 Google’s software, Google has included additional accessibility features as with nearly every major Android update. Perhaps the most useful new accessibility feature in Android 13 is the ability to set different languages ​​for apps.

You’d probably prefer to keep your system language and most of your apps in your primary language but with news apps set to their native language. Or maybe you want to try an RPG from Japan in its destination language. Android 13 can help, but keep in mind that not all third-party apps support language selection.

Android 13 is available on Google Pixel 4a and above. Other Android phones running Android 13 currently include the OnePlus 10 Pro and Samsung Galaxy S22 models, but many Android devices are rolling out Android 13 builds by the end of the year. The instructions below are for stock Android 13 on Pixel models, so the process might be slightly different on non-Google devices.

Option 1: From Languages ​​and Input in Settings

Open the Settings app, then head to the “System” menu. Next, open the submenu “Languages ​​and input”, then “Application languages”. Here you will find a list of applications that support language selection and the current language settings. Scroll to the app you want to modify and tap on it.

When you choose an app, you will find a short list of suggested languages ​​and a longer list of supported languages. Click to select your preference. You will then have the option to choose between certain dialects of some languages. For example, I can choose between Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macau/Macau for traditional Chinese in the Google TV app.

After selecting the target language, you will return to the app selection screen, where the modified app will display the new language preference.

Now it’s time to test it. Open the app you changed the language settings for, and you’ll see this text in the app now appearing in the selected language. Results vary, as shown below, with Google TV set to Chinese and Google News set to Japanese.

Option 2: From Recents, All Apps or Home Screen

For apps that you already know have multi-language support, there is another straightforward way to change their default language. This is very useful when you want to quickly switch between the primary system language and a different language.

While the app is active, swipe it up to enter the Recents screen, then long-press the app icon above the preview. Alternatively, you can long press on the app icon from the Home screen or the All Apps drawer.

Click “App info” from the menu, then scroll down and select “Language.” The rest of the process is the same as in Option 1 above. Tap on an app, choose your preferred language, and try it out in the app.
