Yahoo today announced its smart Android homescreen app Aviate has gained seven more languages. In addition to English, Aviate now supports French, Spanish, German, Italian, Portuguese, Bahasa and Russian.

While the app has been completely translated, Yahoo notes that if you’re using any of the above languages, you will still have to use the English version of Yahoo News Digest, since the app (Google Play) is English-only. It can be added as a widget in their Today Space, but the content won’t be converted.

Yahoo also shared Aviate’s number of daily active users has “more than doubled” since launch, but wouldn’t give specifics. The company says it is gathering feedback as well as “data that reaffirms that phones should be dynamic.”
