On a Google search results page, I go to Settings -> Languages and set desired language preferences.

However, on the next day language setting reset to what seems to be regional defaults.

I'm always logged in and I'm using Google on Windows, Linux and Android devices. My browser is Chrome.

How do I persist language settings?

  • user0, ah, that may be the case! I've switched the Chrome search option to use google.com. Hopefully, that will do the trick. Meanwhile, can you please post your suggestion as an answer so that I can accept it? Jul 30, 2018 at 9:47

The problem was caused by using a regional version of Google (google.ru) as the default search engine in Chrome.

Switching to google.com resolved the issue for me.

Kudos to user0 for the solution.
