The UN has launched two new apps for mobile phones which lets smart phone users get live audio from UN meetings and events as well as breaking news.
Listen to what is going on at the UN, LIVE with UN Audio Channels:
Using the new UN Audio Channels app (for Android and iOS platforms), you can now hear live UN meetings in New York, as well as UN Radio content from anywhere in the world on a smartphone – including information programmes, news bulletins, feature stories and interviews in the six UN official languages as well as in Kiswahili and Portuguese.
Get the latest world news, in 6 languages, with UN News Reader:
The UN News Reader app (for Android) connects you directly with the latest UN news feeds, in all six UN official languages. In addition, the app offers compact information about the UN through links to the UN main web site, Events Calendar, Calendar of Observances, Basic Facts about the United Nations (English version only), UN Multimedia, UN Radio, Twitter, Facebook and Weibo.
The UN News Reader app development was spearheaded by DPI’s UN Information Office in Almaty (Kazakhstan), who was supported by the UNESCO Almaty Cluster Office (for Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan) and the UN Regional Centre for Preventive Diplomacy for Central Asia (UNRCCA).
