Continuing on from our previous article on how to enable Arabic on your iPhone, this article is going to teach you how to enable Arabic on your Android.
First, go to the Settings app and scroll down to the General Management tab.
Once you hit the General Management tab, you’ll scroll down and see the Language and input tab. Press it.
Right at the top of the Language and Input section is another tab called Language. Hit it.
Here you can see all the languages you have enabled on your Android. The tab you will press is the last tab at the bottom of the screen that says Add language.
Scroll down and select “العربية” (Arabic.)
Here you will see many different dialects and versions of the Arabic language. The keyboards themselves don’t vary (much), but you will scroll down to “المملكة العربية السعودية” (Saudi Arabia) and select it.
Once you select that option, you will see all the languages you have enabled on your Android. Now you can type in Arabic!
Pressing the globe icon on your keyboard allows you to switch between the different languages you have enabled on your Android. This is what the Arabic keyboard looks like.
Just like the iPhone keyboard, some letters display different options when you press and hold them. To add harakaat, or inflections, press and hold the button to the right of the space bar. To type numbers, hit the button on the far bottom left of the keyboard. Have fun typing!
