How do I change the language used in each app?

The language settings for apps are usually found somewhere within the app itself. There are usually settings for the language of the app menus, then there are settings for the language of content audio and captions.

Language settings for app menus are usually found under a “Settings” option. Language settings for content audio and captions are usually accessible by pressing a button while a video is playing. Again, all apps are different as far as where the settings are located.
