I am planning to support "Hindi" language in my app. But there is a problem, "Hindi" as language is not supported as locale in Android.

So is it ok to provide option with in the app to change the language? Does anyone have experience with this type of experiment?

Thanks in advance,

Hindi is supported by Android, but not all of the devices have Hindi on Locale options.
If you want to provide Hindi on all devices, you can make manual lang switching in your app.

There is an API function that helps to use the external fonts including Hindi and other regional languages. For this you will have to initialize each component in the activity class and also set the font type. However, it has its other impacts too.
