Google Maps is available in countless languages, although its version for Android behaves like any other app: it used the same language as the mobile. The latest version of Google Maps is a bit more flexible, allowing you change the language of the application itself.
The change was first seen in October and has been released in India, now starting to be enabled for all users. It’s a faster way to change the language of Google Maps
Google Maps in your language, without touching mobile settings
On Android, apps try to use the same language in which the mobile is configured, as long as they have their translation. For convenience and to give more flexibility to users who want to use one app in one language and another in another, some apps allow you to change the language from their settings.
Google Maps was not one of them, although it is now. The latest version of Google Maps has integrated a new menu in its settings by calling Application language
This function was available for many years in the web version of Google Maps, even though the app was still synchronized with the mobile. With it you can use Google Maps in your language even if it is not available in the mobile options
To use this new menu, you must tap on your profile picture, in the search bar, and enter the section of Settings. The language menu is at the top which is a good idea as you can find it if you mistakenly change the language to one you don’t understand.
