Android is a system completely open when it comes to customization. In this field, its main competitor, iOS, is far behind. One of the aspects that the user can modify in Android is the font. There are several ways to do it and in this guide you will find them all.

Change font and font natively

Before installing third-party applications, it is interesting check if the manufacturer of your device has included this option natively. Although not all allow it, some big brands, such as Samsung or Huawei, support this type of customization. But they are not the only ones.

In our case, we show you how to do it in the layer included by Realme, Realme UI. The first step is to visit the phone settings. Then, it is necessary to enter the customization section.

Change font on Android with launchers

The last option that we propose to change the font of your phone is to use a launcher, also known by the English term launcher. It is the only possible option if the manufacturer of your device does not include the option natively and if you are not a root user.

Nova Launcher

With Nova Launcher you can apply some aesthetic touches to the font of your device. However, these changes they only apply to the launcher’s own elements, such as the labels that show the name of the applications.

After accessing the Nova Launcher settings, tap Home screen.
