I changed my phone’s language from English (US) to Kenyan English, here is what happened

Annoyed by how WhatsApp keeps displaying dates in the nonsensical American way (04/23 not 23/04), I changed my phone’s language from English(US) to English (Kenya). A lot of interesting changes have appeared.

Now WhatsApp says it’s 10.00 o’clock in the morning, not 10.00 a.m. Or 8.26 at night not 8.26 p.m.

Lots of subtle differences like these will no doubt keep cropping up in different apps on my phone. Will keep this post updated.

Oh, and it’s Tuesday, 23 Apr – not Tuesday, Apr 23. Finally.
