One of the best apps to learn and meet people, major problem here though is when you make a mistake posting stuff you can't edit, which is frustrating. Either copy and paste then fix or use the correction tab but that's a waste, a simple edit button will make things tremendously smoother. Also talking using the voice feature can drop at times, not too bad but after a solid 30+ it starts to drop. Other than that a very solid app, highly recommended.

We're glad you like HelloTalk and totally understand that it still needs more work. We will send your advice to our Product Team. For the Voiceroom drop issue, please send an in-app message to Support Team (look for HelloTalk Team in your following list) include as many details as possible surrounding the issue (a video would help a lot). Thanks!

The app is great for kids and adults to learn on. It's really safe for kids, with lots of features making it essentially impossible for adults to message them. It is a bit buggy, though, having issues mainly with the chat. The online and typing statuses randomly disappear at times and it's easy to automatically waste free daily translations. In-app auto-messages are also annoying and can't be turned off (though their notifications can be turned off). ALSO: Please add dark mode 🙏

Hello~The online status can be set to hide by the users. We will continue to further improve our app, and your suggestions are a very important part of this process. Though we can not guarantee whether we can implement every piece of feedback, we certainly do our best to review it fully before coming to a decision.

The most annoying part is no dark mode. Some users, seems mostly outside the US, have dark mode. Please add dark mode. Other than that, the notifications only seem to work at night. Annoying ads you can't click out of. Some ads are for some gross questionable apps and games. You can find a lot of people to talk to though so that helps if you already know enough of a language.

Sorry to hear about your poor experience with the dark mode. We have a beta version available for download that contains a fix for this feature. Please download & install the beta version of HelloTalk at https://hellotalk.cn/android and let us know if this solves your problem. If this helps, we'd very much appreciate an update to this review.
