OnePlus 6 – How to Change Language
Changing the language on your OnePlus 6 is quite easy and there are a bunch of languages to choose from. In addition, you can also change the keyboard language and switch between different keyboards in a few taps.
This feature is particularly useful if you are bilingual or want to practice a new language you’re learning. We’ve created a step-by-step guide to walk you through the process of changing your phone’s language.
So, what languages have you tried on your Android smartphone? Don’t think twice about sharing your language preferences in the comments below.
Changing OnePlus 6 Language
To begin experimenting with different languages, check out the steps listed below.
1. Go to the Settings App
Tap on the gear icon on your Home screen to access the Settings menu.
2. Access the Languages & Input Menu
Once inside the Settings menu, swipe up until you reach Languages & Input and tap to get more options.
3. Select Languages
Tap on Language – the first option that appears in the L&I menu. Browse the list of languages and tap on the one you would like to use.
Tip: If you get your OnePlus 6 in a language other than US English, you can easily change the language by following the icons. The Settings menu is represented by the gear icon and the Language & Input is represented by a globe icon. After you tap on the globe icon, select the first option in the next menu to change the language.
How to Change OnePlus 6 Keyboard Language
When you change the language settings on your entire phone, why not have a keyboard that matches the language? In addition, setting up a new language keyboard is quite easy and very similar to changing the system language. Without much further ado, let’s check out how to do it:
1. Launch Settings
Hit the Settings app on your Home screen and search for the Language & Input menu under the System tab.
2. Tap Virtual Keyboard
Select Virtual keyboard below Keyboard and input methods and add a new keyboard.
3. Choose the Preferred Keyboard
Make sure you have the desired keyboard selected before you exit. You can also change the keyboard priority in the same menu.
Note: There is also an option to add a physical keyboard which might come in handy if you decide to mirror your OnePlus 6 to a PC.
Tip: You can easily switch between different keyboards by pressing on the globe next to the space bar. Depending on the Android version you are running, the keyboard switch can also be done by pressing and holding the spacebar.
Other Language & Input Options
There are a couple other L&I options you should know about. Enabling spell checker, for example, allows you to avoid embarrassing mistakes but it works best with the English language (all regions).
Auto-fill service improves you typing by predicting which word you are going to type next. It can work well with different languages since it remembers the words and phrases you type frequently.
Playing around with language options on your OnePlus 6 can be a fun experience especially when trying to master a new language. What’s more, now that you know how easy it is to switch between languages, you can add a new prank to your repertoire. Imagine your friend’s face when he sees his OnePlus 6 in Chinese (not that we recommend it).
