Divi has currently 1429 fonts by default which are the same fonts found in the Google Fonts collection.

The number of fonts in Divi will grow as the number available via Google Fonts grows. When a new Google font is added to their collection it will show up and be available to use in the Divi Builder as a divi theme font automatically.

You can live preview all of the Divi fonts either within the Divi Builder font drop-down lists or by using the official Google Fonts website.

The best way to preview the full Divi fonts list is to use the Google Fonts preview.

This page displays the full collection of fonts and allows you to search, filter, sort, and demo each of the fonts as a grid or list of fonts. Once you have chosen your font here you can then use the dropdown in the Divi Builder to select your font within your website.

How to choose the best header and body font pairs?

You have the ability to use as many fonts as you like in your Divi website but good design practice means you will likely want to set one font for your text headings (H1, H2, H3, H4, etc) and one for your body text (p). The selection of these 2 fonts is known as font-pairing and they should compliment each other for good styling.

With so many Google/Divi fonts listed in the official Google font repository and available to choose from in Divi it can be daunting to pick the best font combination for your website.

There are a few resources online to help pick font pairs such as the Font Pair website and the Google article on pairing typefaces.

Divi font pairing website

The Font Pair website allows you to browse in various font category pairs such as Sans-Serif/Serif Serif/Sans-Serif Sans-Serif/Sans-Serif Display/Sans-Serif etc. You can also search for a particular font that will give you all available font pairs using your selected font.

Final thoughts on Divi fonts

Divi allows you access to the full list of Google fonts which is very extensive and perhaps even too extensive. On several site I use the default open sans font and am happy with the simple look it gives.
