Using WhatsApp in your language is very simple. If you have browsed through the settings of your application, you will have noticed that it does not have a language selector. This is because the application automatically adapts to the language set on the phone. On Android, WhatsApp is translated into about 60 languages. And if you are an iOS user, it is possible to use the service in about 40 languages.

As explained above, to use WhatsApp in your preferred language, first, go to the phone settings. Tap on Additional Settings. Depending on the customization layer, the name of this section may vary.

Immediately, your phone will change its language. In addition, all applications that do not have a specific setting to change the language will be adapted. This is the case with WhatsApp. The next time you log in it will use the one you have selected. But what happens if the language you have chosen is not available on WhatsApp? In this case, we recommend that you add a second option to the list. In this way, WhatsApp will use the first language it has available according to the specified order.
