1919649 - SUP: navigator.language does not return the physical device language but always ‘en_us’


navigator.language does not return the physical device language, but always ‘en_us’ in the HWC application, even if physical device language is changed to German.

Also tested:

  • deviceLanguage = navigator.userAgent.match(/[a-z]{2}-[a-z]{2}/);
  • navigator.userAgent

but none of them returned the correct device language.
