Hit the hamburger menu in the top left of the Google page. Hit settings. Are any of those languages set to Māori?




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

Is that settings for the browser language, or just the Google page settings? Which browser (looks like Chrome to me)?

Look at the Google page settings, not the browser settings.

You can set the language here:

 

 

https://www.google.com/preferences#languages

 

 

I'm convinced this is some sort of elaborate A-B testing that Google does periodically...

Fabulous. That worked.
Much appreciated.

I just noticed that you can choose Elmer Fudd as a language, haha

It also may have defaulted to Māori being that it's Waitangi Day today?
