France 24 today launches a new version of its Android application, compatible with all devices equipped with the Google mobile operating system, available for free on Google Play.
Adapted to new practices in news consumption, this new trilingual application (French, English, Arabic) features streamlined design and very fast video loading for greater user comfort.
This version has been completely redesigned for navigation on tablets and all video content is now compatible with the Chromecast service.
In addition to free access to articles, reports and all France 24 programmes, mobile users can now personalize their navigation thanks to a new “Favourites” page that lets them create a catalogue of content and build up lists of articles using keywords. They can also use the "tweets" tab to follow the activity of France 24’s journalists and programmes in real time on Twitter.
Lastly, thanks to the dedicated tools, users can share the news items of their choice on the social networks. To follow breaking international news as it happens, users can also sign up for news alerts in the language of their choice.
A pioneer in mobile broadcasts, France 24 has been available on smartphones since February 2009. The international channel was the first in the world to broadcast its programmes live on these devices.
