1. VIDEO TUTORIAL #3 RELEASED
With version 1.1.660 that was released on earlier this month, we included the ability to ‘Add Note’ to your voice messages, so that your Pal can more easily understand what you’re saying. You can type out what you said, and even add a translation and other comments.
See the new Video Tutorial #3 (“How To Help Your Pal”) to see this and related features:
2. SPANISH PHRASEBOOK
We have just launched the Spanish phrasebook – it’s currently only available in English but the Chinese translation should be launched within July!
We now have phrasebooks in the following languages:
- Chinese (simplified)
- Korean (Beta)
The above phrasebooks (apart from Spanish) are all available with English and Chinese translations, with translations into other languages coming soon. If the phrasebook is not yet available in your language, we recommend that you set your “Translation Language” (under Settings) to English, so that at least you can use the phrasebook with English translations.
If you’re not sure how to use Phrasebooks, please see our Basic Tutorial here.
