WhatsApp is known as the undisputed king of social media apps because of its immense popularity amongst the users. It is being used all over the world, replacing the traditional way of sending/receiving text messages. If there’s a person who’s still not aware of this app, then we may come to believe he’s been living under a rock. Apart from taking us aback with a number of stunning features, one of the best things about WhatsApp is that you can operate this app in your own language. Yes! You heard that right. The language in WhatsApp can be changed to your local language.
WhatsApp supports up to forty languages (up to sixty languages on an Android device) including but not limited to Spanish, German, Hindi, Urdu and many more other than English. If someone wants to change the language from English to any other local language then they can simply do it by following some simple steps.
As a general rule, WhatsApp follows the language that has been set on your phone. If you change the language of your phone to German, WhatsApp will automatically be in German. The same goes for every other language you select.
