The process will be effectively the same on whatever device you’re using. That’s because the settings can only be changed from a computer or mobile browser. One advantage of using an Android device is that it will allow you to open your settings from the Netflix mobile app, but it will then redirect you to the appropriate page on the Netflix site on your device’s default browser.

FAQs

Q: What languages does Netflix support?
A: You can set your Netflix account to over 20 languages, but be warned that not every show or movie is available in all supported languages. If a language isn’t supported, you’ll probably have to resort to turning on Netflix’s subtitles (which are pretty good, if we’re being honest).

Q: Does changing the default language also change the subtitle language?
A: Audio and subtitle languages on Netflix are linked, so changing one changes the other to match. Those are separate from your display language though, which you have to change as well if you want all of your settings in one language on Netflix.

Q: How do I return Netflix language settings back to the default?
A: There’s no default language setting on Netflix. Whatever you select is the default. If you want to go back to whatever language was selected when you created your account, you’ll have to do it manually following the steps outlined in this guide.
