Android 13 is developing Panlingual feature

Reliable sources say that Google is developing a new feature code-named Panlingual for Android 13, which will allow customers to apply language settings on a per-application basis, separate from the settings of the entire system. For example, a person who speaks multiple languages ​​can set social media applications to Spanish, while keeping their system user interface and other applications in the default English settings.

The development of this new feature may still be in the early stages, but the technology media Android Police know how it might work. All of these may change. The current logic is a new application language setting, which is controlled in the existing language and input page in the settings, although it will also be directly from the application information Access in the screen.

This may sound like a basic function, but it is not something that the Android system can do on its own right now. Applications can provide their own internal language settings (such as Google Maps), but many applications just follow the system settings and load default localized resources. For a few applications that provide personal language settings, these options usually need to be found in the application’s own settings menu-this is not common.

This new system will be suitable for any application that has a unified set of controls, and it should be easier to find, although it will directly depend on the application itself, and even other language localization options are built into it.

Therefore, if an application can only work in English, this feature itself will not increase much. However, Android 12 also adds a translation API, so these functions may be combined in a way to fully automatically translate an application’s resources without the need for developers to localize each language.

A few third-party hobbyist tools can provide similar functions, but their settings are not completely simple. Xposed App Locale 2 and App Settings Reborn both allow you to adjust the localized language settings on a per-app basis, but they require the device to be rooted and install the Xposed framework. Local languages ​​can also be configured through ADB, but this is not very simple. Like many of the best features of the Android system, it seems that Google is getting a little inspiration from the root and ROM crowd.
