Request body

Do not supply a request body with this method.


If successful, this method returns a response body with the following structure:

  "displayLanguage": string
Property name Value Description Notes
displayLanguage string The language to display Gmail in, formatted as an RFC 3066 Language Tag (for example en-GB, fr or ja for British English, French, or Japanese respectively).

The set of languages supported by Gmail evolves over time, so please refer to the "Language" dropdown in the Gmail settings for all available options, as described in the language settings help article. A table of sample values is also provided in the Managing Language Settings guide

Not all Gmail clients can display the same set of languages. In the case that a user's display language is not available for use on a particular client, said client automatically chooses to display in the closest supported variant (or a reasonable default).
