Duolingo finally arrives on Windows Phone with support for six languages

Last year, Duolingo took the Play Store and Apple’s App Store by storm. Now, it has set its sights on Microsoft’s smartphone platform. The company teased the app’s arrival via Facebook a couple of weeks ago and now, right on time, Duolingo for Windows Phone is live on the Windows Phone Store. It is ad-free and available to download at no charge.

Duolingo requires Windows Phone 8.1 and offers users the ability to learn Spanish, French, German, Portuguese, Italian, and English through the use of mini-games and short review sessions. We expect the list of supported languages to grow over time, given the fact that languages have been added to other versions of the app relatively quickly.

In comparison, Android users are able to learn Spanish, French, German, Portuguese, Italian, Dutch, Irish, Danish, and English. On iOS, the list includes all of the above as well as Greek, Hindi, Hungarian, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Simplified Chinese, Spanish, Traditional Chinese, and Turkish.

Duolingo was named one of Apple’s “Best of 2013” apps last year and the company partnered with Google to be one of the first apps optimized for Android Wear when the platform was detailed earlier this year.
