Google makes its services available in many different languages besides English. If you want to use Gmail, Drive and other services in your chosen language, simply set the new language as the default in your account. We’ll show you how to do it on your desktop and on your mobile device.
Later, if you want, you can switch back to English for all your Google services.
Set Google services to a different language on desktop
If you have a Windows, Mac, Linux, or Chromebook computer, use a website in your browser to change your language.
Start by opening a web browser of your choice on your computer and launching the Google account site. On the site, sign in to your Google account. It’s easy to recover your Google password if you’ve forgotten it.
Once you’ve logged in, on the left sidebar, select “Personal Information.”
Scroll down the page to the “General Web Preferences” section. Here, click on “Language”.
On the “Language” page, next to the language listed under “Preferred Language,” click the pencil icon.
Advice: Later, to return to the default language, click the up arrow icon next to your language in the “Other languages” section.
An “Add Language” window will open. Here, find and select your new language. Then click “Select”.
Close your web browser, reopen it, and visit a Google service like Drive. You will see that you are now using the newly specified language in your account.
Are you ready.
Make Google services use a different language on mobile devices
To change the Google language on your iPhone, iPad, or Android phone, use the free Gmail app.
Start by launching Gmail on your phone. In the top right corner of the app, tap your profile picture or initials (depending on what you’ve added to your account).
In the menu that opens, select “Manage your Google account”.
On the page that opens, in the list of tabs at the top, select “Personal information”.
Scroll down the page to the “General Web Preferences” section. Then tap “Language”.
On the “Language” screen, next to your default language, tap the pencil icon.
Advice: In the future, to return to your original language, select the up arrow icon next to your language on the page.
You will see an “Add Language” page. Here, find and tap on your new language. Then tap “Select”.
And that is. Google will now use the language you just selected for all the Google services you use.
If you want, in addition to Google, you can change the default language in Chrome, Tor, Windows 10 and Windows 11, Amazon, Facebook, iPhone and even Mac.
