Forvo's New Years Resolutions

January 21, 2015

This week's blog is dedicated to everyone who took time out of their day to tell us what we were doing right and what we can improve on. From all of your thoughts and comments, we have a lot to keep us busy in 2015:

1. Redesign Forvo

2. Create a better way to organize and search for words

3. Make Forvo more fun

I'm excited to share that we have a few projects in the pipeline that will tackle these points and will change the way you currently use Forvo. First we are incorporating your comments about Forvo's look and feel to roll out a new version of Forvo. Like you, we think Forvo should be straightforward and easy to use.

Second, we are working on a new “lists” feature where users will be able to create lists of words, and share them publicly or with selected users. This will go a step beyond the “Category” feature, which doesn't allow you to filter words by language, or create lists to share or use later.

Third, we are brainstorming and using your suggestions to visualize how Forvo can realize its potential as the foreign language community it was created to be. We want to enable users to be able to connect with one another all over the globe through language. We have a lot of work to do, but we can't wait for what 2015 will bring.
