Steps

  1. 1
    Once your phone is open, we are going to swipe across the lock screen.
    One swipe across the lock screen will take you to the home screen. You may need to enter a pass-code or pin depending on your phone and how your security is set up but that is okay.

    Now there are three different ways that we can access the keyboard settings on the Android phone.
    The first is by swiping down from the top which will open up the notifications panel.

    Okay?
    These are two languages that I use. If I wanted to enter in Arabic or Persian or Chinese, I could enter those as well noting that they all appear in their own distinct languages.
