How To Change Font on Android Phones


Be that person who marches to the beat of a different drum. We value the individual who dares to be different. How boring would life be if we were all the same, or if there was only one font; not to mention that some fonts are easier on the eyes than others. Regardless the reason, we can show you how to change the font on your Android.

1. Built-In Options

Some Android devices offer an inherent feature that allows you to change the font, but this does vary by manufacturer. A great place to look for this (particularly if you have an HTC or LG phone) is within Settings, and typically under Display. If you have a Samsung, try going to Settings > My Devices > Display > Font Style.

2. Change Launchers

The launcher is responsible for your Android’s home screen as well as many other parts of the interface. Naturally, it’s a great place to start if you want to implement a comprehensive change—like customizing the font everywhere on your Android.

You will need to download a launcher app, and it’s possible that you may also have to use the launcher to apply a different theme on your phone. It will very likely change many aspects of the interface appearance. An example of such a launcher is GO Launcher.

Download: GO Launcher

Once you have installed the app, choose Go Settings > Preferences > Font > Select Font, and if you don’t find anything you like, you can access more choices by downloading Go Launcher Fonts.

3. Use an App

You can also use an app specifically intended to change the font. One example is HiFont, which is free, user-friendly, and gives you hundreds of choices. See more options on Google Play.

The easiest possibility is if your phone comes with different font options. The only downside to many of the apps that are designed to provide a different font is that they require you to root your Android. If you aren’t ready to take that step, try a new launcher first.
