On the 15th of August, Google released Android 13 as an updated version of Android OS. Android 13 polishes a lot of the changes that Android 12 brought to the table, while also introducing a ton of small, helpful features across the board that aims to improve privacy, security, and usability.
We will be going to have a recondite discussion on one of the significant features that Android 13 brought. With the new upgradation, you can now switch which language apps use on an app-by-app basis. This new feature avail you to decide which app displays in different languages, completely dependent on your needs. Now the question arises, how we can change languages per app in Android 13?
Steps to change Android 13 Language per app:
- On your device running Android 13, head to settings by swiping down from the home screen twice until you see the settings cog at the bottom. Tap it.
- Find System and tap it.
- Hit Languages & input.
- Tap App languages.
- Scroll through and find apps that you’d want to change the language for. Once found, tap the app and choose your new language.
It is a language sequence. All apps – unless told otherwise – will function with the default language, which is chosen when setting up the device. If needed, you can choose certain apps and change the default language for each, overriding the system default on your phone.
Presently not many apps are available to support separate language choices. But while reading from 9TO5Google It is said that about 20% of the apps installed on the device have this option. So, After taking the advantage of a new language for an app, you might not see the change right away. You need to restart the device to observe the change after the language chooses.
Apps like Google Chrome on Android don’t seem to like the language switch very much, though that could just be an issue that needs addressing. Over time, more apps will likely start supporting language switching with this new addition to Android 13.
Why switch to languages per app?
Might you don,t have an idea regarding the usage of language per app but you expect that it may be needed in the future? Meanwhile, many users are bilingual which can provide a multitude of use-cases for needing certain apps in different languages. Also, It happens that your system’s default language to English. This lends itself well to most apps, though certain apps like financial ones would be much better suited to French since it’s more comfortable.
You could be trying to learn a new language – switching up app languages will help you visit certain apps for sessions while leaving your default system-wide language in your native tongue. This would help immerse you into a language, encouraging you to use it in order to navigate the app.
We have taken several usages of the feature and it has seemingly been in demand for a while. So, you can drop your comment there in the comment box while suggesting more. For more of the same type stay connected.
