Features and Main Benefits

The TED package comes equipped with real-time access to well over 2,000 individual talks. Subtitles are available in more than 90 languages and a built-in library has taken the guesswork out of navigation. All of these seminars can be viewed on a smartphone or they can be sent to a home entertainment system with the help of third-party applications such as Chromecast or AirPlay. While there are numerous videos to encounter, an audio option enables you to listen to these seminars with a set of headphones or a separate speaker system.

Additional Tools

All TED talks can be downloaded and viewed offline at a later time. A personalized library can be created so that specific genres are easier to find. In the event that it is not possible to watch a specific video, it is able to be bookmarked. The newest version (3.0.4) has addressed some minor bug issues.
