Having the stock Android smartphone has its own benefits like good performance and better user experience, But one is likely to get board over a period of time with its plain design.Since Google Pixel And Google Pixel XL are also stock based android phones so in this detailed post we will guide to you to easily Change Font on your Pixel Smartphone.
In this Post We will tell you Hoe to change font in your pixel smartphone in two different ways. one Will work for Non-Rooted Pixel and other will give Rooted Pixel owners with the ability to change the Fonts as per their wish.
Changing Fonts On Google Pixel Without Application:
Note: This method works Rooted as well as Non Rooted Google Pixel smartphone
Follow the step to change the Font and Font size on the Google Pixel or Pixel Xl Smartphone.
- Go Settings
- Open Display Settings
- Select Display Size -Now just scroll down further and select “Display” option. You will find the adjustable slider just at bottom of the screen.
- Adjust the Font – in the same way you can chage the size of the Font
- There you can find in the section “Font Style”, the following fonts:
- Chocolate Cooky
- Cool Jazz
- Google Sans
- Download Fonts
You have the ability to preview the font size and style at the top of the screen.
Changing Fonts On Google Pixel With Application:
Since without the use of Application the user will be restricted
One non-root way to change font on your Pixel is through custom launcher apps. Some custom launchers integrate the font-changing function, while most others will need you to install themes.
One reasonably well known custom launcher that provides a way to change fonts is GO Launcher. To change font styles in GO Launcher, do the following:
- Copy your TTF font files to the phone.
- Open GO Launcher.
- Find the Tools app and open it.
- Tap on the Preferences icon.
- Scroll down to Personalization and select it.
- Tap on Font.
- Tap Select Font and tap on the font that you want to use.
Changes will apply immediately. No need for rebooting. If you want more fonts for use with GO Launcher EX, download and install GO Launcher Fonts.
The iFont app can also be used for changing fonts. The only issue was that it used to be a bit limited and used to work only with Samsung devices. This is still partly the case, but the developer now also supports Xiaomi Meizu and Huawei. As well as HTC, Sony and Motorola rooted handsets.
On non-rooted devices, use iFont’s Online tab to browse for available fonts. To use a font on the list, do the following:
- Enable installation of apps from “Unknown Sources.” This option can usually be found in Settings > Security.
- Launch iFont. Go to the Online tab.
- Tap on a font name that you want to install.
- Tap the Download button.
- Tap the Set button. Or go to Settings > Display > Font Style. Your newly installed font should appear on the list.
- Tap on the new font to use it as system font.
- Font is applied immediately. No reboot needed.
You can also copy TrueType fonts (TTF) from your PC to the /sdcard/ifont/custom directory; the said fonts will appear on the Custom tab. But, to be able to install and use the fonts, you will need a rooted device. (For a guide on using this app on rooted devices, see the iFont subsection under “Methods requiring root.”)
iFont is free and shows no ads. It worked quite well on several devices (including non-Samsung phones) that I tested it on.
Time to talk root
Note: This method only works on Rooted Google Pixel Smartphones only.
If you have root privileges on your Google Pixel, you will be able to alter system files and, in the course of doing so, you could render your device useless. So, be careful.

There’s plenty of apps in the Play Store
An easy way to change font on rooted Android devices is to use font changer apps that support rooted devices. There are several of such apps on the Google Play Store. Most of them also offer a preview function that lets you see how a font looks like.
In this subsection, know more about two font changer apps that are worth checking out: Font Installer and iFont.
For rooted phones, Font In2staller is a great free app for changing system fonts. It has a built-in font preview feature, so while scrolling up and down the list of built-in fonts, you know exactly how they look like once activated on the device.
This is an ad-supported app. Ads appear at the bottom. Remove the ads by purchasing a license.
To install a TTF font file that you’ve saved to your device to Change Font :
- Copy to your device the TTF font file that you want to use, preferably into the /sdcard directory.
- Launch Font Installer.
- Before tampering with your system fonts, backup your existing default fonts first. Tap on the Menu (three dots) button and select Backup/Restore. Select Backup. If Superuser or SuperSU asks for permission, grant it.
- Tap on the Local tab to open the directory explorer. Locate your TTF file.
- Tap on the TTF file that you want to use. From the popup dialog, tap Install to set it as the default system font. (If you want to preview the font first, tap on Preview.)
- If Superuser or SuperSU asks for permission, grant it.
- Font Installer will prompt you to reboot your device. Tap on Yes.
To install a new font from Font Installer’s online font collection:
- Open the Server tab in the Font Installer app to see the catalog to Change Font.
- Tap on the name of a font that you like.
- From the popup dialog, tap on Preview if you want to see sample text rendered in the chosen font; or, tap on Install if you want to download the font and set it as your system font.
- If a backup warning/notice appears, make sure you let the app backup your font files. This shouldn’t take a long time.
- Allow the app to reboot your device.
