As of today, I have a problem with the Language () function. The function has stopped returning the actual environment language identifier and always returns "en-US" or "en", regardless of the browser language setting. I use the function to set the default localization in our customers' applications. Has anyone encountered the same problem? Any ideas on how to solve the problem?
I've also have the same problem and looks like from yesterday although might be from before that.
It's a big issue for us as it affects input/update of any currency input field as when one applies the Value() function to the text of the field this would normally take into account the correct currency symbol (based of result of Language() internally) and hence in our case with en-GB an input of £12.34 is returned as 12.34 i.e. Value("£12.34") = 12.24 .. but now that return null/blank!
I've found that using the mobile PowerApps (iOS & Android) all is ok as in our case Language() is correctly returning en-GB but when running in a browser (Edge, Chrome etc) it's now only returning en-US
This needs fixing quickly I hope!
@DerekPapworth It was not the Language function itself but a general problem with the app language setting. Different formats (e.g. dates and decimal number) were affected as well, but it appears as if this bug was resolved by Microsoft. At least everything works for me again since this morning

Good to hear all fixed for you too 🙂
I think the general problems(s) were actually caused by the Language function issue as they (Value(), Text() etc) internally call the Language function (or probably the Graph API it calls) and hence in our case for instance the displaying of a number containing a currency symbol which was interpreted incorrectly as it contained a "£" which is invalid as en-US only allows $ . etc.
Anyway glad we're all back to normal!
