Spotify is one of the most popular music streaming platforms to have ever come out. The app can instantly serve music from any corner of the world and is known globally by artists and listeners.

With such a wide user base and artists from all over the world, regional settings can make or break the app for many users. This is why Spotify has several languages to help local users make the most of the app.

This article looks at how you can change the language on your Spotify app on your phone and PC.

Language settings in Spotify

Before you proceed, it’s important to note that the Spotify app gives users two choices for their language selection.

  • App language: The language that the Spotify app uses to show content.
  • Language for music: This setting allows you to select from a list of local languages in your region that Spotify uses to look for new music and artists and show existing tracks.

The desktop app, however, only gets the app language offer. That said, settings from your Spotify phone app will transfer over to the desktop one, provided you’re using the same account, so it’s not that much of a hassle.
