The official Wikipedia Android app is designed to help you find, discover, and explore knowledge on Wikipedia. Settle a bet with a friend by doing a quick search through the app, or dive into featured articles, images, recommended articles, and more using the explore feed. With more than 39 million articles in nearly 300 languages, your favorite free online encyclopedia is now at your fingertips.

Features:

Explore feed - The new ‘explore feed’ offers recommended and constantly updating Wikipedia content right on the home screen, including trending articles, current events, suggested reading, and more.

Voice-integrated search - Easily find what you’re looking for with a prominent search bar at the top of the app, including voice-enabled search on your device.

Nearby - Learn more about what’s around you by selecting points on an interactive map to see articles related to your current and nearby location.
