Z ynga on Thursday is rolling out a sleeker, more robust version of Words With Friends, the Scrabble-esque mobile game that first came out in The company has been tweaking the new version for months after polling their users about possible features, hosting focus groups at their San Francisco HQ and soft launching the rebooted app in countries like Australia and Canada. For those attached to the older version of Words With Friends, never fear — no one will be forced to upgrade. Community Match : This feature is a bit like Tinder for people who play word games. Through this new opt-in feature, players can now choose to challenge someone nearby and select whether that person is male or female; when going through potential opponents, one swipes left to skip them and swipes right to ask for a match. If they accept, the game begins.
Words With Friends is out with a latest version. Zynga's popular word-building game allows people to play offline and chose potential opponents through a community match feature. October 9, Words With Friends, the most downloaded free game ever in the Apple's App Store, has returned with a new version.
The popular word game has rolled in new features, such as offline play, community matching, and player profiles. Since its launch, Words With Friends has been extremely popular. A total of 58 billion words have been played in the 7. Some 55 million matches are being played at any one time, according to the company. One of the new features is offline play. Users can play without an Internet connect and without a direct opponent. An additional upgrade is community match.
Using a swipe system, players can look through player profiles, a new feature that shows a user's playing history, and find potential opponents. Swipe one way to play that opponent and swipe another way to chose another one.

If you were to come up with a punchline to a joke about the Monitor, that would probably be it. But you know what?
