Android is popular for its customization options and if your device is rooted, you can customize each setting as per your need.
We all know that we can change the font in android and some particular model devices have an inbuilt option for this task. But, the thing is that the changed font becomes the entire device font.
But, if you wish, you can change the font on per app basis. In simple words, you can set a different font for each app in your handset. Let’s check it out all the steps in detail.
Suggestion: Do a nandroid backup before making any changes.
