How To Change The Subtitle Color And Font On Netflix

Are you having trouble seeing the subtitles on Netflix? Or do you find the text too big or small for you? In any case, you can customize the appearance of your subtitles on the app. Check our guide below, and we’ll teach you how to do so.


Although there are people who prefer not to use subtitles when watching a movie or a show, we can’t deny the usefulness of this feature on the things we watch on Netflix. Especially if you’re watching a show in a different language, having subtitles is a must.

However, we understand that the default appearance of the subtitles on the app might not be suitable for everyone. Thankfully, Netflix allows its users to customize their subtitles and change how it looks from their account page.

Here’s our guide about customizing your Netflix subtitles.
