Accelerated Mobile Pages

February 3, 2017

We're excited to announce that Forvo pronunciations will now be much faster to access on mobile devices. We've optimised our site to include Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP) for all word pronunciation pages meaning that if you search for how to pronounce a word through a search engine on a mobile device, Forvo will load much more quickly than previously.

Accelerated Mobile Pages is an open source initiative designed to make really fast mobile pages. At its essence, it's basically a stripped-down form of HTML. AMP content loads an average of four times faster and uses 10 times less data than non-AMP pages.

You'll notice when a Forvo page is in AMP because beside the search result in your search engine you'll see a lightening icon and the letters AMP. With nearly 60% of you now accessing Forvo on mobile devices we hope you agree this makes your experience much better.

Check it out and as ever let us know what you think! or @forvo.
