You may have noticed a friend or family members’ phone and sees that the font on their menus was different than the one on yours. If you liked the change, you may be wondering what they did to create that appearance, since you want to have it on your Android phone as well.
Fortunately Android Marshmallow gives you a bit of control over the way that your phone looks, and one of the options that you can change is the font that the device uses. Our guide below will show you where to change the Marshmallow font style, as well as its size.

Step 2: Select the Settings option.
Step 3: Choose the Display option.
Step 4: Touch the Font button.
