Re: Changing language on external keyboard when connects to tab 4 8

I've got the same tablet, but you don't say what you're trying to connect to it.  Maybe if you identify the brand and model of the keyboard / case some one will have the same and advise you.  You should know that simply attaching a hardware keyboard does NOT automatically link with the Lenovo, or GBoard or any other sofware keyboard and foreign languages that are installed - the keyboard will be recognized but limited to the Android sytem language.  Possibly the keyboard maker has an Android app with additional languages available, you should look into that.  But don't expect the hardware keyboard to find languages attached to separate software keyboards like Lenovo's.
