So, let’s dive in…
How to type in Hindi on WhatsApp?
By default on your Android phone, the Google keyboard (aka Gboard) will be set to your primary keyboard for typing and the language will be set to English. Now you can either use Google keyboard (Gboard) and change the language or you can additionally download an app that is particularly designed for Hindi typing.
I’ll show you both ways of doing this.
Method – 1: Google Keyboard: Set to Hindi
To change the preferred keyboard language on Google Keyboard, simply follow those steps…
- Open Settings on your Android phone.
- Type “Gboard” on the search bar in the Settings.
- From the search results, tap on Gboard.
- Now from the Gboard’s menu, choose Languages.
- Over there, tap on Add Keyboard.
- You’ll see Hindi (India) on suggested languages.
- Tap on Hindi (India) and then tap on Done on the next window.
That’s it, you have done it. Now open your WhatsApp or notepad to test it out.
Note: You’ll need to tap and hold the Space button on Gboard to choose the Hindi language from the popup window. You have to do the same if you wish to switch back to the English language.
In case if you don’t have Gboard installed on your phone, simply download it from the play store and follow those steps to set it up.
