Launched in 2009, Words With Friends redefined the word category on mobile. Last year, we introduced a completely refreshed game fully loaded with dynamic features for a sleeker, smarter and more social experience. Through Words With Friends language localization, not only can players now choose what language to play in wherever and whenever they want, they can seamlessly carry over their current game, stats, opponents and full game history.
Words With Friends additional language offerings provide players with an immersive experience including sharpening word skills with Solo Play and Stats to track and compare high scores, number of games completed and average word score with their friends and recent opponents.
More than sixty-percent of our players use Words With Friends to stay connected with their friends and family. In addition, millions of players have made special connections through the game either by strengthening an existing relationship or fostering a new one. Some players have even found their perfect match beyond the game as friendly competition expanded into a real-world relationship.
“Little did I know when I started a game of Words With Friends a year ago that it would be with my future wife,” says Sofia Vanessa Hernandez, a self-proclaimed word geek from Seattle, who met Caroline Sargeant, a UK-based HR recruiter, on a dating website in 2014 and proposed a friendly game of Words With Friends. Since then, the pair has made Words With Friends their favorite couples activity, playing multiple matches a day to stay connected while living overseas from one another. “From the very beginning, Words With Friends was the impetus for our relationship and now we are planning to get married. I’m so grateful to Words With Friends for providing us with a platform to not only connect, but to fall in love.”
In conjunction with the launch of Words With Friends additional languages, we are also thrilled to introduce an exciting new gameplay mode – Fast Play. Fast Play gives Words With Friends players a quicker way to victory through starting and winning matches in record time. Fast Play features a smaller game board, fewer tiles and a 24-hour time limit to make your move. Currently available for Words With Friends English players, Fast Play will be rolling out for additional languages in the coming months.
Whether brushing up on a native language, refining wordy skills when trying to learn a new language or staying close with their friends and family across the globe, Words With Friends now connects more people around the world than ever before. Words With Friends additional languages are available to play for free on the App Store for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch and Google Play.
