The new VR app combines voice chatbot technology with speech recognition in virtual reality to create a new way to learn...
ATi Studios, creators of Mondly, recently crowned 2017 Facebook “App of the Year” in EMEA, is officially rolling out its updated mobile app design – which the company began testing last month. The cleaner, simpler design makes the app even easier to use for the 20 million plus people who downloaded Mondly to date.
The updated app comes with:
- hand-crafted and improved graphics that catch the eye
- a new design of the first-of-its-kind chatbot with speech recognition exclusive to Mondly – more visual use of emojis and more engaging with the chat-like design
- double the number of available lessons from 120 to over 240
- new lessons related to doing business, including going to the airport, ordering food in a restaurant, and learning to deal with emergency situations
- new Monthly Challenge to complement the existing Free Daily Lesson and Weekly Quiz
The new design is now available on all Mondly iOS and Android apps. Alex Iliescu, CEO of Mondly, spoke about this major update:
“The Mondly redesign is a reflection of our long-term commitment to bring learners one step closer to fluency through innovative new technology. We use beautiful graphics, crystal-clear audio recorded with professional native speakers, interactive lessons, and engaging features such as our new Monthly Challenge to help people learn new languages effortlessly.”
This New Design Aligns with Mondly’s Vision for the Future of Education
The fresh look aligns with Mondly’s goal to become the most innovative language learning company in the world. Mondly was the first to release a voice-enabled chatbot in August 2016 followed by the launch of the first Virtual Reality app with speech recognition on Facebook’s Oculus Store in February 2017. Mondly took innovation one step further this month with the launch of the first VR language app on Google Daydream.
