France 24 has launched a new version of its Android app that is compatible with all devices equipped with the Google operating system and available for free on Google Play.

The trilingual app (French, English and Arabic) features streamlined design and very fast loading for greater user comfort.

It has also been completely redesigned for navigation on tablets and all video content is now compatible with Chromecast.

France 24 is a pioneer in mobile broadcasts, having been available on smartphones since February 2009.

The channel was the first in the world to broadcast its programmes live on such devices.
