There is now an additional way to browse Wikipedia in India! We are happy
to confirm that the Wikipedia app is available on the top 3 mobile phone
operating system platforms in India - Android, iOS and newly KaiOS, which
is provided through Jiophones . Jiophone users can download and install
the Wikipedia app on the JioStore.
This first release is focused on how to make it easier to read Wikipedia on
a phone that does not have a touch screen. The platform supports over 100
languages for reading, and we appreciate that volunteers have fully
translated the Wikipedia app user interface into five Indian languages so
far: Bangla, Gujarati, Hindi, Odia, and Punjabi. The app will continue to
have updates and reach more countries over time.
If you (or someone you know) own a Jiophone, please give the app a try by
downloading it from the JioStore. We would like to hear about your
experience with it. Let us know about issues or bugs through the in-app
feedback feature, through the project talk page , or through Phabricator
To enable the app to reach readers in even more Indian languages, we would
greatly appreciate additional translations of the user interface on
