Samsung launches the official Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018 app

The Olympic Winter Games 2018 will be opening in just a couple weeks. This year the event is being held in PyeongChang, South Korea, so it is an especially nice opportunity for Samsung to partner with the International Olympic Committee to be a partner for the Olympic Winter Games. To celebrate their continued partnership, which this year focuses on Wireless Communications Equipment and Computing Equipment, Samsung announced today availability of the official app for the games.

Youghee Lee, CMO and Executive Vice President for Samsung Electronics noted,

“As part of our commitment to creating an enjoyable Olympic Winter Games experience for athletes, fans, and consumers, we’re proud to create connections, and to help share the Olympic Spirit around the world. Through our innovative technology advancements, our goal is to contribute to a meaningful and unforgettable experience for all.”

As one might expect for a sports event related app, users will be able to stay up to date on news and results from the Winter Olympic Games and the Paralympic Winter Games. This can be at a high level focused on major events and highlights each day or it can be for specific events, countries, sports or athletes a user may have a particular interest in.

Along with news updates and results, users who are in PyeongChang for the games will be able to get updates on things like tickets prices and venue information based on their location. Even athletes can benefit from an “online cheering service” offered through the app.

The official app is now available in the Google Play Store.
