How to change the keyboard language on Samsung Galaxy A40

If you want to have multiple keyboard languages or need to change the keyboard language of your Samsung Galaxy A40, you can easily do so by following the steps given here.

By installing multiple keyboard languages, you'll be able to use the right language for each conversation and quickly switch between them with the touch of a button on your Galaxy A40's keyboard. This is especially useful if you have contacts who speak different languages or if you deal with multiple languages in your day-to-day life.

Having the right keyboard language for each conversation allows you to use autocorrect for the corresponding language, which helps avoid errors with autocomplete. For example, imagine you are writing to someone in English and then you need to switch to a conversation in Spanish; With keyboards set up correctly, you can do this smoothly and maintain accuracy in both languages.

In addition, this will allow you to write more correctly and professionally, since your Samsung keyboard will automatically recognize and correct the words in the language you are using at that moment.

Estimated time: 2 minutes.
