  • love it Jun 11, 2020

    By Piciman
    i have learned soooo much from this app. i wish i would have found out about it sooner. i love that native spanish speakers are able to correct my wording so that it sounds more natural, and that i can learn about places from all over the world. since i am a 20 year old girl, i have gotten around 1000 messages in 3 weeks, which is definitely entertaining, but can be a little scary too. be careful who you talk to. i have learned that if someone asks for a voice message or picture (which the app doesn’t allow) within the first few messages, i should probably stop talking to them. one bug that i hate is that messages don’t send if you’re not connected to wifi. it’s really hard to write long messages in another language multiple times. overall, this app has taught me so much and given me an opportunity to practice my spanish, which is exactly what i was looking for. i highly recommend it.

  • Great connections, app could be better Jan 5, 2020

    By Bay-ish
    Made many connections in the language of my current focus. It’s quick and it’s simple. The only drawbacks is that after a strong language exchange partner is made, the app itself (Speaky) quickly becomes limited in it ability. We usually more often than not have to jump to a different platform, one with more stable capabilities and features. Overall, again –– great, no-hassle connections!!

  • needs some help Aug 1, 2018

    By artsjack
    a couple things about this app. it’s a very good one, it’s concept is a great idea of having other people teach you their language BUT there is still this large amount of men from the middle east who will message you and ultimately flirt with you. there is also a glitch where when you reply to a message, your text is there twice but when you go back into the chat after the person replied there is only one text bubble from you, it’s really weird. i personally wouldn’t recommend this app because of the overwhelming amount of men on this app who are just looking for fun.

  • eh it’s okay Jul 4, 2018

    By Chichilu
    It has a good concept, you can definitely learn a different language but as I look at it, it’s more of a like friend/dating app. You can’t even add pictures to help people or for them to see your handwriting. Has anyone noticed that there’s these korean people who will talk to you for a day or two and then all of a sudden never log in again? Same with some other people...: I’ll be talking to them and then they will never talk on there again. Has this happened to anyone. Overall it’s an okay app, definitely needs some improvement and also the app can be very laggy.

  • IM GETTING CULTURED, although there are some bugs Oct 12, 2018

    By LanguageGod
    Speaky is great! It’s my first day on it and I love it! It has connected me with people from all over the world and I have learned so much already. Although there are some bugs! Sometimes I try to send a message and it does not go through to and I have to refresh the app multiple times before it works. Other than that the app is great!

  • Terrible app Jan 29, 2020

    By JadeC67
    Wow, at first I thought this app was amazing, but after using it for months now, I deleted it. Half the time if wont send my messages, so I have to type out the same message like 5 times or more. No audio and no pictures can be sent. A lot of trashy guys like to use it to send sexual things. There is no way to report them and there are no rules for the app. The most frustrating part is that the app bugged me every time I opened it to sign up to receive alerts on my phone and yet once I finally signed up for alerts, I never get alerts! Wow, HelloTalk and Tandem are WAY better apps. This is the worst app I’ve used to learn a language. If I could give negative stars, I would.

  • Very buggy Apr 22, 2020

    By j3242kt1066
    Is this app still supported? Is the company behind it dead. Speaky is so buggy & has been for a long time. Main complaint: You send a message, it disappears. Who knows if it sent... who knows what you sent. I presume the same applies to the person on other end. You send a reply and... no reply. I’d love to use speaky, but it needs to be fixed. Sometime this century would be nice. I probably downloaded this a couple years ago and check it now and then... no improvements are apparent. Right now you are way behind HelloTalk, which is recommend way more than Speaky. Please improve Speaky if you want to change my mind.

  • Messages disappear!! Mar 25, 2019

    By Renee_Kennedy_Yoga
    I want to love this app, I really do. It’s a wonderful concept and 90% of the people I’ve met genuinely want to practice language. However, the message disappearing bug really hinders the user experience and makes it difficult to maintain conversations. I’m never sure if the person saw my message go through and it just disappeared on my end, and the fact that there’s already somewhat of a language barrier makes this problem super confusing. Fix that and it would be five stars!

  • The app almost functions great but has a critical failure Aug 30, 2018

    By Twylafaut57
    Every aspect of the app appears to work great and it makes finding people very easy...but then it doesn’t work when you try to talk to them. Often when trying to send a message it just disappears and after refreshing acts as though the message was never typed out and sent, making it almost impossible to carry on a conversation with anybody in this app. Fix this major issue and I will give this app a good rating.

  • Would be great if messages sent Mar 15, 2019

    By CDubDC78
    None of my chat messages are sending. I’ll type/send a few lines and if I go back to the home screen my messages are gone as if they never sent. From other reviews this appears to be a recurring problem. The potential for this app is great, which is why I gave it 2 stars, but an app that fails in its primary and most basic function-to send messages and chat-needs some serious reworking. I want to love this app but all I am is frustrated.

  • The app has issues sending messages Feb 11, 2019

    By marks.thought
    This is a really cool idea, but when ever I write a message, more times than not, the message will disappear instead of sending. It’s really difficult to get a message out. Fix this and I will improve my rating.

    By Mikky lance00
    This app has really been helpful to those of us that wishes to learn other languages but don’t know how to go about it. This is a great avenue to do that. Thanks to Speaky.

  • Language Exchange Dec 25, 2019

    By Polyglot in Tennessee
    Speaky is generally an excellent way to meet others who are serious about languages. There aren’t nearly as many spammers as one sees elsewhere. Caution is advised wherever we go on the Internet, but my experiences here have been very positive.

  • Wow Jun 26, 2018

    By my knee itches
    It’s a pretty good app, but It doesn’t have the ability to send voice messages or photos, so it’s a bit harder to get help with homework. Another thing is that when I send messages, it never shows I’ve sent it. Once I leave the chat it still says I have a new message and haven’t responded, even though I just did. It makes it a lot more difficult to communicate because I don’t think people are receiving my messages and if I double text people will think I’m weird.

  • Great site but a few glitches Nov 15, 2017

    By Gitana12345
    This site is great for talking to people in your target language. However, there are some bugs that need to be fixed. Sometimes the app just shuts off. Also, whenever I correct someone’s writing and submit it, the app shuts off. Suggestion: A built in translation mechanism would be awesome. Don’t know how feasible it is though. It would just be cool to have one within the app so I don’t have to keep exiting and going to my google translate app. Other than that I’ve been able to correspond with people just fine. I like the filters for finding people. Those seem to work very well. I like only talking to people of my same gender because with men you never know if they’re going to act all weird (sorry—speaking from experience).

  • Buggy Apr 18, 2018

    By Room a
    The app doesn’t always send my messages through, and some of the messages disappear after being sent. Also, I don’t always receive messages from the language partner. There is an issue with the internet connection constantly disconnecting and reconnecting. However, the filters are good and there are plenty of people using the app who are willing to help you with your language studies.

  • Too many bugs Nov 26, 2018

    By Merry yuk
    I like the concept of the app but if I can’t send any messages how am I supposed to enjoy it. The app has been messing up and no one is fixing these bugs!?? Why???! It’s so frustrating to message someone and find out the message never went through. Even when you try to resend it, it doesn’t go through. The app is a tug of war. So I can’t say it’s worth your time

  • It ok Jun 10, 2017

    By Christanf
    It's a good app overall, but it definitely needs work. I can't correct messages because it kicks me off every time I try to send them with corrections, and then, of course, you can't call or video chat anyone. I mean you could add them on Skype or WhatsApp, but I wish you could just do all that from this app. That would definitely make it a better app!

  • Can’t Meet New People Dec 20, 2019

    By AWESOMEPERSON!
    When I would send a message to people, no one ever reads them. It seems only a few people who I spoke to before can see my messages. Two stars... Update: It appears after writing this review Speaky has decided to “suspend” my account. No reason provided. Also, a bunch of the people I used to speak with are appearing as “suspended users” as well. I do not recommend Speaky to anyone. At this point I wish I could give ZERO stars.

  • VERY stupid, cant use email to join Oct 11, 2019

    By cincoroles
    VERY VERY VERY STUPID that in 2019 the only way to join is via Facebook or Google which THIS APP DOES NOT NEED ACCESS TO. Why cant I use my email address? There are hundreds of email providers that people use around the world yet you STUPIDLY only allow the 2 options. I can only assume you have no intention of wanting to be a popular language chat app. Good luck, youre gonna need it if u actually expect to succeed long term. Idiots!

  • Big issues! Apr 5, 2019

    By justnotbuyingit
    I’m constantly texting people and it shows message send only to go back and text is gone, so you waist so much time writing and loosing. Huge flaw... you can sit and watch the connecting flash on and off, so their system just can’t seem to handle the demand. I use cell and WiFi connections, does it both ways so it’s on their end. They need to fix it or it’s not worth the frustration
