Changing the language on Google Chrome is surprisingly straightforward.

Key Takeaways

  • To change the language in Chrome on Windows, go to Settings > Languages.
  • In Chrome on Android, open Settings > Languages > Current device language, select the language, and restart the app.
  • To alter the Chrome UI language on iOS and ChromeOS, you must adjust the language in your device settings rather than the browser.


Changing the language of Chrome’s user interface is a straightforward process. Depending on your device, you can modify it in the browser or your device settings.


How to Change the Language in Chrome on Windows

To change the language in Chrome on a Windows device:

  1. Click on the three vertical dots in the top-right corner and select Settings.
  2. Select the Languages tab from the left sidebar.
  3. If the language you want to switch to isn’t listed under Preferred languages, click Add languages, check the box beside the language you want to add, and click Add.

The next time you launch Chrome, you’ll see the Chrome UI in your preferred language.

How to Change the Language in Chrome on Android

To change the language in Chrome on an Android device:

  1. Tap on three vertical dots in the top-right corner and open Settings.
  2. Go to Advanced > Languages.
  3. Tap the language listed under Chrome’s language and select your preferred language.
  4. If the language isn’t already installed, Chrome will download it automatically. Otherwise, you’ll be prompted to restart your browser.
  5. Tap Restart Chrome to restart the app.

The Chrome app for iOS and iPadOS lacks a built-in language change feature. Therefore, you need to adjust the language for the Chrome app through your iPhone settings. Similarly, changing your Chromebook’s language automatically changes the Chrome app’s language. In both cases, there is no way to change the language in Chrome.
