The International Olympic Committee (IOC) has developed the free Olympics app for Android 5 and up. The app is available in multiple languages such as English, Japanese, Chinese, Hindi, French, Spanish and Korean.
It’s the official app for the 2020 Olympics and Paralympics taking place in Tokyo. It gives you the latest updates, news, schedules and sports featured at the Games. Additionally, you can follow the epic Olympic Torch on its relay journey through Japan. You can also test your knowledge of trivia with a FanZone game. If you want another sports option, you can stream a variety of sports live with GHD Sports.
All the news and highlights
Due to the pandemic, the 2020 Olympics is a year late and started on July 23, 2021. Since Covid 19 is still with us, no spectators have been allowed. This means this Olympic event will be a digital event for fans. The official Olympics app brings you all the news and highlights, schedules and sports features. It covers both the Olympic and the Paralympic events.
Begin by following the historical Olympic Torch relay journey through Japan. Customise your experience by choosing your favourite sports to watch, and get reminders and notifications through the app. Join the Tokyo 2020 FanZone game to test your knowledge and enjoy magical moments.
Go back to the past and relive the highlights from all past Olympic games. The app displays the results and records for all the sports, athletes and games. Also, view the best photos and video footage from Olympic history. Search for medalists by games, athletes and country.
The Olympics app also brings you Word Lens, taking you to a new level of AR (augmented reality) viewing, with an interactive journey through eight diverse cultures. Join in to celebrate our differences and be #StrongerTogether.
Some users find the time zones confusing since it converts back to Tokyo time when clicking on events. Users would also like the option to mark events as favourites. On the positive side, users find the app a great, immersive experience and consider the explanations for the different sports types valuable.
