I notice a difference in the terminal font between two of my Android devices, specifically in terms of character coverage (in both cases it's the terminal shell of JuiceSSH). How do I set the font that the terminal uses in Android?

  • Increase/decrease general system wide font size by going to Settings > Display > Change Font Size or similar. Or if that specific application offers font size preference, then use it. Different android devices' font don't look the same because of screen sizes and resolutions / dpi.

I found two ways for changing font size in JuiceSSH.

Use Volume keys

The very first time you would've used JuiceSSH, you might have come across this brief tutorial:

Use the Volume Up/Down keys to adjust the size of the font.

Traditional way (Settings)

On the default page of JuiceSSH, go to Settings → Font size → adjust it.



Use the Volume keys of your phone to adjust the font.
