The Meta Owned Messaging app Whatsapp is working on a new feature that will let you manually change the app language. Currently, the app on Android automatically selects the system language when you start Whatsapp.
In the latest Whatsapp beta for Android version 188.8.131.52, it is discovered that the app is now testing a new app language setting.
If you are unaware, Whatsapp supports 60 different languages globally on Android. At present, the app selects the system language when the app is set up the first time. However, things will be changed once the new App Language Setting will be rolled out.
WhatsApp To Soon Allow Users To Change App Language Manually
With the help of this new update, a user will be able to change the language of the app via app settings. Only the app language will be changed, and the device language will be the same as it is.
This feature is similar to the Android 13 feature per-app language settings. With the help of this feature, the user can change the language of apps from the system settings. However, this feature is now available in the latest developer preview of Android 13.
The App Language Setting feature on Whatsapp is currently under development. It is expected to release in the future update.
Once you enable the feature, click on the option, and you will see options for all available languages.
Recently, Whatsapp has added one of the most awaited global media player on the Android beta version 184.108.40.206 via Google Play Beta Program. The global media player lets you listen to voice notes from one conversion while you access the chat view or other conversations.
Currently, the global media player is available for selected Android beta users. It is expected to roll out for more users in the coming days.
