The lang read-only property of the Notification interface indicates the language used in the notification, as specified in the lang option of the Notification() constructor.

The language itself is specified using a DOMString representing a language tag according to RFC 5646: Tags for Identifying Languages (also known as BCP 47). See the Sitepoint ISO 2 letter language codes page for a simple reference.


var language = Notification.lang;


A DOMString specifying the language tag.
