I absolutely agree. Immersion as soon as possible is important. Think of Japan - how closely could you emulate that experience wherever you are?
I set my mobile devices to Japanese at around level 32 or so. At that level, I can read almost half of the normal Japanese I run into (source: WaniKani Statistics).
My aim after mobile was later to change all devices, and I did that a few levels later. It wasn’t much of an issue for me at first, because I memorize UI elements well.
The key for me was to force myself, actually. I come upon something I don’t know, quickly break down the Kanji + look them up, and move on. You can even go from the English to the Japanese if you have an idea of what you’re looking for
I’ve done that for a long while now, and I have become very comfortable with navigating around in Japanese. Like @vargsvans said, try it
P.S. I know you’re low in level as of now, but if it isn’t too outside of your comfort zone, maybe start with changing small apps that you know very well.
Another thing (sorry for the length) - getting a leg up on some Kanji can be helpful. It allows me to speed through some WK levels at breakneck speed (OK, well, maybe just a tiny bit faster than usual )
