Your Snapchat app will probably download in the language your device is set to, but you can change that at any time through Snapchat's Support landing page. Once changed, the text on the app descriptions, labels, and instructions will revert to the language you've selected for the app.

However, Snapchat will not automatically translate incoming messages. That means that any messages you receive via chat will be typed in the language the person sent it in. Additionally, this language change only applies to the Snapchat app. The rest of your phone or tablet will stay as is, which means you may also have to adjust your device's settings to swap your keyboard's language.

If you want to change the language your Snapchat app is in, here's how to do it.
