OMGPOP’s (or rather Zynga’s) smash hit Draw Something has just received a big update on both iOS and Android. The update, which came to iOS first but has now reached Android as well, includes a new look for the game and shop, more words, more languages, and a new expiration notification.

The change in looks is not huge, but you’ll notice it if you’ve been playing Draw Something Draw Something Adds Comments, Social Sharing & An Undo Button [Updates] Draw Something Adds Comments, Social Sharing & An Undo Button [Updates] Read More regularly. Options-wise, the interface has not been changed much on the main screen; rather, it had received a sort of facelift, and now looks somewhat slicker. In addition to looks, Zynga has (apparently) been listening to its fans, and has added “special words” which come in 30 different categories. The categories include things like body parts, fashion, 80s, and more. You can try the special words for free, but most of them cost extra coins.

This brings us to languages: Draw Something now supports 13 different languages, including Dutch, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Japanese, Chinese, and more. This feature could bring the game popularity in additional countries, which might help its poor standing of late.

The game will now also includes expiration notifications, and will notify you when a game you’re currently playing is about to expire. This just might give you the extra push you needed to go back and play your turn.

Download the new version of Draw Something from iTunes or from Google Play.

    I like the new features, but I fear it's too late. I used to play with 10s of Facebook friends, now just a couple - all fellow English teachers keen on a challenge. Bringing back people who've become bored with a product is much, much harder than preventing them from getting bored in the first place.

      Yeah... that's what I think too. I must say, I was never a big player of the game, but all my friends were and I kept hearing about it constantly. It's completely gone now, and I doubt some new features will bring them back.

      Just goes to show you that even when you have something successful, you have to keep putting and effort into it, otherwise...

        Yup, that's a valuable lesson that's particularly relevant with apps. So many distractions, so many competitors... I used to pore over every update's details, now I skim them. Many apps which have apparently improved I no longer have time for as their competitors took over while they slept.

    The Google Play link sends me to the iTunes Store #URLTypo.

      Doh! That's weird. Thanks for letting us know, it's fixed now.

    I was interested in a new version in my own language, two month ago. Now i'm tired of playing it. Too little, too late.

    I personally don't like the new version. Basically, the resolution is not very good on my HTC Incredible S, so things look blurry and not in clear focus.

      The new version is blurry and the older one was fine? That's interesting. What's the screen size on the Incredible S?

    I wonder what the changes to the new version are. The new look showed up in the last version, including the special words.

      Interesting, I didn't see them in the previous version I had installed. I think the new version came out first for iOS, and I have an Android device.

        I have the apk/Android version. I actually think it came out 2 versions ago. If syntax could put the save image option, that would be nice.

          OK, I haven't seen them before. :) Thanks!
