Service is in addition to online and radio live broadcasts
The Vatican’s dicastery for communications has created a mobile app to enable listeners to hear the pope in their own languages.
The app “Vatican Audio” can be downloaded free from the App Store and Google Play.
Pope Francis, who generally speaks in Italian, can be heard live in Spanish, English, French, German and Portuguese. When he speaks in his native Spanish, the app also provides the audio in Italian.
Pilgrims and visitors attending papal events in St. Peter’s Square can also follow the pope in the five languages.
This service is in addition to the live broadcasts in different languages already available online and on radio.
