Android, Tutorials

If you are using an Android device and need to change the language settings, don’t worry, it’s a simple and straightforward process. Android provides a user-friendly interface that allows you to switch between different languages effortlessly. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the steps to change the language on your Android device.

Step 1: Open Settings

To start, locate and tap on the Settings app on your Android device. The Settings app typically has an icon that resembles a gear or a set of sliders.

Step 2: Navigate to Language & Input

Once you have opened the Settings app, scroll down until you find the Language & Input option. This option is usually represented by an icon with an “A” character and a keyboard.

On some devices, the Language & Input option may be located under different names such as:

  • Languages & Keyboard
  • System & Languages
  • Languages & Input

If your device has one of these alternative names, simply tap on it instead of Language & Input.

Step 3: Choose Language

In the Language & Input menu, you will find a list of all the available languages for your device. Tap on the Languages option to access this list.

The list may include various languages depending on your device’s model and software version. Scroll through the list until you find your preferred language. You can also use the search bar at the top of the screen to quickly locate a specific language.


If your desired language is not listed, you may need to download and install it from the Google Play Store or a language pack provided by your device’s manufacturer.

Step 4: Set as Default Language

Once you have selected your desired language, tap on it to set it as the default language for your device. A confirmation dialog may appear asking if you want to change the language. Tap OK or Yes to confirm the change.

Step 5: Restart Your Device

To apply the language change, it is recommended to restart your Android device. This will ensure that all system menus, apps, and user interfaces are displayed in the newly selected language.

Congratulations! You have successfully changed the language on your Android device. You can now explore your device in your preferred language.


If you ever want to switch back to the previous language or change to a different one, simply follow these steps again and select a new language from the list.

We hope this tutorial has helped you in changing the language on your Android device. Enjoy using your device in a familiar and comfortable language!
