Mobile

Android

 You can change the language on your Android app to any language you have installed on your phone.

  • Tap More on the bottom menu, then scroll to the bottom and tap Settings:

  • Tap Profile in the Settings menu:

  • Tap Select Language to be taken to your device's menu to change the language:

The app language will always match your phone's language unless you turn on the Force English option. When Force English is enabled, the app will be in English regardless of your device's language.

iOS

The iOS app automatically adjusts to your device's language. But if you want to use it in a different language, you can easily change it if your device runs iOS 13 or higher!

1. Ensure that your phone is running iOS 13 or higher by going to Settings > General > About.

2. Go to Settings > General > Language & Region and select the language you'd like to use for the app. You can then determine the primary language on your iPhone.


3. Go to Settings again, scroll down to the list of apps installed on your device, and select Chess. Here, you will see the option to choose your Preferred Language for the app.

4. Set the language to whatever you want, and you'll have Chess in that language!
