Students, teachers, parents, and company employees from more than 200 countries are using Kahoot! to make learning awesome. To better cater to the needs of our growing global community, we made our app for iOS and Android available in Spanish earlier this fall as the first step in our strategy to make Kahoot! available in more languages.
Now, we’re making the Kahoot! app available in French, Brazilian Portuguese and Norwegian!
The Kahoot! app becomes more accessible for millions
By making the Kahoot! app available in more languages, we’re hoping to bring a more accessible, intuitive and relevant experience for learners of all ages, in all contexts. It will make it even easier for Portuguese-, French- and Norwegian-speaking students to study through playing kahoots. For parents, it’ll help engage even the youngest children with a game-based learning experience. For teachers, business users and anyone using Kahoot! in a social setting, the localized versions of our app will make the experience more relevant and enjoyable regardless of their knowledge of English.
Brazilian Portuguese is the third most spoken language by the Kahoot! community (after English and Spanish), while French takes the fifth position. Norwegian is the native language of Kahoot!’s home country where Kahoot! has become a go-to learning platform for people of all ages at school, at work and at home.
Make learning awesome for the entire family with Kahoot!+, now available in Spanish, French and Norwegian
In addition to being used at school and at work, Kahoot! has become a popular activity in various social settings around the world. Particularly in times of social distancing, playing Kahoot! virtually has helped millions of people connect. As the holiday season is approaching, it’s more relevant than ever to have access to Kahoot! in your native language to be able to engage even the youngest family members!
To make learning awesome for your entire family and give you more ways to connect and interact with friends, we’re happy to share that Kahoot!+, our new offering for friends and families, is now available in Spanish, French and Norwegian!
