Android, Tutorials

Changing the country on your Android phone can be a useful feature, especially if you are traveling or moving to a different location. In this article, we will guide you through the process of changing the country on your Android phone.

Step 1: Open Settings

To begin, locate and tap on the Settings app on your Android phone. The Settings app can usually be found in the app drawer or by swiping down from the top of your screen and tapping on the gear icon.

Step 2: Find Language & Input

Once you have opened the Settings app, scroll down until you find Language & Input. Tap on it to proceed to the next step.

Step 3: Change Language

In the Language & Input settings, look for an option that says Language. Tap on it to access the language settings.


  • If your Android phone is already set to your desired language, skip to Step 4.
  • If you are unable to find Language & Input in your settings, look for a similar option such as Languages & Region.

Step 4: Add New Language

In the language settings, tap on Add a language. You will see a list of available languages. Scroll through the list or use the search bar at the top to find and select your desired language.


  • The languages are usually listed alphabetically.
  • If you cannot find your desired language in this list, it may not be supported by your Android phone.

Step 5: Rearrange Language Order (Optional)

If you have added multiple languages, you can rearrange the order in which they appear on your Android phone. This can be useful if you prefer using a specific language over others. To rearrange the language order, tap and hold on a language, then drag it up or down to the desired position.

Step 6: Set New Language

After adding your desired language and arranging the language order (if necessary), go back to the language settings. You should now see your newly added language at the top of the list. Tap on it to set it as your primary language.

Step 7: Confirm Language Change

A confirmation message will appear asking if you want to change the language. Tap OK or Yes to confirm and apply the new language settings to your Android phone.


Depending on your Android phone model and software version, the confirmation message may vary slightly.

Step 8: Restart Your Phone

To ensure that the changes take effect, it is recommended to restart your Android phone after changing the language. This will refresh all system settings with your new country selection.

Congratulations! You have successfully changed the country on your Android phone. The interface and system apps will now be displayed in your newly selected language.

Please note that changing the country on your Android phone does not alter its geographical location for purposes such as accessing region-restricted content or services. It primarily affects the system language and some localized settings.
