Google Chrome has come a long way since its initial release in 2008. Back then the most popular browser was Microsoft’s Internet Explorer. Today, Chrome holds a 66% worldwide usage of browsers for the desktop platform while holding a commanding 56% share on all platforms combined. If you own an Android smartphone then chances are it will come pre-installed with the Chrome browser.
Since you will most likely be using Google Chrome on your phone it’s best to know about its features in order to make full use of the browser. The first time that you will use this browser it will choose the language which it thinks that you would like to use. While it gets this right often there are times when you want to use the browser with a different language setting. To change the language setting of this browser just follow the steps listed below.
- Open the Google Chrome browser. Go to the menu button on the top right side of the window. This is represented by three dots.
- Go to Settings
- On Settings go to the Advanced option which should be located at the bottom of the list.
- Go to languages
- Choose from the available list of languages that you want to use. You can also add a new language by clicking on the “Add languages”option. There is also a way for Chrome to translate webpages to the language of your choice. Make sure to enable this feature by placing a check on the “Offer to translate pages in this language option”
- Once you have completed your choice you can close the Settings tab or exit from the browser. Your settings will automatically be saved.
