Netflix adds the Malay language to its list of supported languages
Malaysians, Netflix has given yet another reason for your relatives and friends to hog your account.
The company is adding another Southeast Asian language, and this time it’s Malaysia’s national language, Bahasa Melayu.
The new language change will affect the whole user interface, including title names and synopses. It will also come with Bahasa Melayu subtitles and dubs.
A Netflix spokesperson said, “Netflix believes in giving members control over their entire entertainment experience, and we are delighted that they are now able to choose to enjoy Netflix in Bahasa Melayu.
“This surely will improve their viewing experience and better suit members who prefer consuming Netflix in their national language.”
The Malaysian national language adds the total number of Southeast Asian language to four, the other being Bahasa Indonesia, Vietnamese, and Thai.
To change the language, click on Manage Accounts, select the account that you want the language you want to change, and select Bahasa Malaysia from the dropdown menu. The good point about this feature: You can change the language of selected users and not for your entire account.
The addition of the Bahasa Melayu language came at the perfect time, as Malaysia is about to celebrate its 63rd independence day on August 31, 2020. Netflix also said that they will bring more Malaysian stories to the global market.
