Hinglish is a conversational hybrid of English and Hindi where English letters are used to write Hindi words. With support for this language, Google wants to make interaction with its app easier to understand and feel more intuitive, natural.
To switch the language of your app to Hinglish, users first need to update the Google Pay app to its latest version. Then, tap on your profile picture on the top right corner of the app and open settings. Go to ‘Personal Details’ and change the language.
