A better Offline Mode.

By Memrise Team

In an ideal world, we’d all have uninterrupted access to the internet. Oh, the endless scrolling learning!

But alas, we don’t. Wi-fi signals don’t reach to where you are sitting, your data is all gone, you’re taking a long-haul flight to your holiday or you’re just doing your daily commute underground. And stuck. With no internet.

That’s why our engineers have been working on making a series of improvements to our offline mode. We want you to be able to seamlessly learn regardless of your network connection. The work is ongoing, but here’s a peek at how we’re making it better for you:

  • Better handling of temporary network issues. So if you lose signal for just a few secs here and there, your lessons carry on smoothly.
  • We’ll automatically pause and queue your download if your signal becomes weak or lost, so it resumes as soon as you come back online.
  • A new setting to control whether to use Wi-Fi or data to download your course.
  • Offline sessions with video, so you can get the full benefit of watching and learning with real locals regardless of your connection.

These changes have been rolled out to iOS and are coming soon to Android, so keep your eyes on our latest updates!
