We’re just a day away from the official opening of the Rio 2016 Olympics and everyone is trying to get into the spirit, with brands and apps and social media platforms all giving their own contribution to make the games easily accessible, even if you’re not going to Brazil. The official app for the games, Rio 2016, is now updated itself I’m preparation for the glut of information that people will want to have as the games start.
The app has added a few languages and is now available in English, Portuguese, Spanish, French, Mandarin Chinese, Japanese and Korean. You will also be able to get up-to-date information in terms of the game schedules, news about all the teams and athletes that will be participating.
