Android N, which is now officially named as Android Nougat (v7.0) comes with so many new features as we have seen in its Developer Previews so far. Once of its very important feature is 'Multi-Locale' that lets you use multiple languages on your Android devices anytime. If you are thinking what's so surprising in this feature, it is not the same as changing the main language of your device, but it lets you use multiple languages at the same time, without changing the main language.


For example, if you receive a message or email which is in different language, not the same as phone's main language, then the app will switch/translate it to configured languages automatically. However, you must set number of languages first in the device's settings. In order to use this feature, you must be running atleast the 3rd Developer Preview of Android N. Which means, it will be official in the final release of Android Nougat.

Let's find out in detail, how to use Multi-Locale in Android N:

  1. Start by going to phone's Settings
  2. Tap on ‘Languages and Input’ > ‘Languages’
  3. Here you first need to select multiple languages you want to be displayed on your phone.
  4. Arrange them in order you want the text to be switched/translated.

That's it. You are done.
