Google Play Reviews

  1. Austin-avatar

    This is an overall good chess app but there are two issues that play a role in the review of the app. First, the timer for the classic play with other online players is long. It allows for 48 hours which seems like it is too much time only because online players who are losing in a game will take advantage of this and stop playing and if want to play another game you would have to forfeit which brings down your score and overall winning percentage. The ads aren't horrible but they are annoying.

  2. Nathan B.-avatar

    This game would be perfect if it a couple things were changed. 1st being the having to log into facebook just to make a profile. 2nd being the fact that I lose points when the game disconnects. I don't think its fair to pay a penalty if the servers crash! That's not the players fault at the end of the day. All in all, great app, despite the issues stated above.

  3. Joe Dohn-avatar

    Solid program for playing online chess. I especially like the classic games. My biggest complaint is the inability to review your games, which should be a standard feature of any chess app. It's the reason I don't play rapid games on this app, in classic games I can at least write each move down manually, but there just isn't enough time to do that in a rapid game.

  4. Stanley Griffin-avatar

    I have enjoyed playing chess on this app for the past two months. I like having the option to select a classic no limit game or a 5 minute time match. Unfortunately, I often lose against the clock in a game that I am otherwise winning. I am happily surprised to see that a new 10 minute timed match has been introduced. What more can you as for?

  5. Nathan Beard-avatar

    THIS APP IS HORRIBLE!!! I used to like this app and it wasn't bad. The issue here is this annoying "reconnecting" issue. My internet is fine, I can run games with 1000x more bandwidth than this stupid chess app. But for some reason I'm always having to reconnect which often drains time off my timed matches. After the update, this has become even worse. Often at times seeing my opponents time drain but it switching to my turn and then draining my time for the duration. FIX YOUR GAME!!!

  6. Mandeep singh-avatar

    Very nice to play but there is a problem with ranking, if you win the game you will get 11 points, 13 points or 15 points but if you loose then deduct 25 points 30 point and more. This is very unfair. Why this will be same. Win or loose add and deduct same points.

  7. Ayanokoji-avatar

    This app is a joke. Chess24 is better. Yes, you removed the reconnecting problem, but when i play a move it consumes 5-10 secs without letting me know. I lose 5 times already my rating was 1452, now it's 709 because of this bullcrap you added. I'm dissapointed. I thought this update will be better, but im afraid not. The matchmaking also sucks i only get to play with people below 1.1k ratings. Fix your damn app.

  8. G Jovi-avatar

    45 HOUR time limit on classic games?? Your opponent just stops playing to force a forfeit/loss. Very frustrating. Timers need to be fixed. Oh, you're ahead? I'll just keep you in this game forever. Other than that, it's a fun app.

  9. Uchiha Twinkle-avatar

    This app should have been five stars, but it's annoying to think that you need an internet connection to play, even with computer ... Please let there be offline mode and online mode... Like I know people that relax with a game of chess but this app has made it mandatory that without internet you can't play... That's frustrating... Please consider

  10. Isa Abdul-Hafeez-avatar

    Isa Abdul-Hafeez


    It is a pretty cool game if your into chess. You can play with friends and in this time we're in right now it cures boredom. Chess is a game that is for all ages, and a game that doesn't change every month, it's the same game. This app makes chess. I would recommend it.

  11. Vijay Kumar Saini-avatar

    What the hell happened to game watch is not working properly. Wherever opponents watch is stopping my watch is also showing the same time. Another things is reconnection what the hell this game wants I have high speed 4 G connection still many times during game it shows reconnection. Totally worst application to download and play chess.

  12. A Google user-avatar

    Can't tell you how many times I've lost a speed game because the game randomly and conveniently wants to spend 30 seconds "reconnecting" making you think the opponent is taking too long when in all actuality your own clock is ticking. Smf. Annoying af.

  13. Gary Mank-avatar

    It is a great game but what needs to be changed is there needs to be a time set for the opponent to make a play. If they don't they need to forfeit not count against the other person for resigning from the game. I have a lot of losses because of this

  14. Iain Stirling-avatar

    First game so a bit early to give accurate description. I played computer as not confident enough to play opponent but suppose it's the way to improve. I'll give it time before dipping toe in the water.

  15. Cinders 311-avatar

    I enjoy playing with different people around the world, but my complaint would be that the game tends to freeze up and tells me hold on..checking on opponent and won't let me move then unfreezes and my time is down a minute or two

  16. Gergely Simon-avatar

    If you could add notifications when the timer is about to run out that'd be great. Pretty annoying to see a game ending due to time without any prior indication... Also pretty slow for something as simple as chess

  17. gavin balaam-avatar

    Need games with extra seconds, and pre move to limit losses on time. Long games should be per move otherwise moves whilst asleep consume too much time. Also must reconnect to in progress games. A lot of work still me.

  18. Dipankar Gogoi-avatar

    No back options, and accuracy is missing like if I want to move my queen in last cell straight and if I somehow don't click in proper way then it would by default take the second last cell, very buggy product, need to synchronize more and make more user friendly not developer friendly 😂😉😅

  19. lemxn drxp-avatar

    App is trash, it says reconnecting whenever my opponent moves and then I lose because my time ran out while it was reconnecting. You're joking right "we're fixing our reconnection problems" it's just as bad you guys didn't do anything

  20. Alex S-avatar

    The best chess app I have played so far. The free version allows you to play and learn without going premium. Well polished and worth trying out.

  21. Pedro Pereira-avatar

    Come on people, you can't watch a 10 second ad? This app for chess is the best so far! Aside from losing all the time lol, but any game app you can chat with your competitors with, is making this COVID-19 era durable

  22. William Lundy-avatar

    I wanted to play chess. It does that plus it has plenty of options. Play a cpu, a person, a timed game or casual. All 👍

  23. Peter T Myszkowski-avatar

    Peter T Myszkowski


    It was kinda ok for $5 a month. Lots of connection ISSUES though. Not fair to lose when you didn't even play (frozen screen at "get ready" lol). Now $15? GTFOH. NOT WORTH IT. BBYE

  24. Frank Tirino-avatar

    Adds are over the top. Too many and too lengthy. Need more time options. 5 mins is great if the connections were impeccable. My opponent makes a move and due to delays 6 seconds are already off my clock. I still play despite these issues. Also, for the latest update, it just takes you to the store with no additional information and the only option is to uninstall then reinstall, after which I still receive the message to update the app. Until its updated, you can't access the game. What now?

  25. Lester Pienaar-avatar

    Love the game but some of the players cheat by than the game says its reconnecting on their side but my clock is running. Next thing you i am out of time.

  26. Robert Wiley-avatar

    i love this chess app. but i wish it had a way to connect unintended moves. and some time connection improvements needed.

  27. Fabian Escamilla-avatar

    Fabian Escamilla


    Awesome experience as a beginning player. Mainly play computer to learn more strategies 👍 Tried others and not as great as this one.

  28. Ilan Alvarado-avatar

    Great I love the game I just hate how you have to pay for different looks on the chessboard

  29. Christopher Breshike-avatar

    Christopher Breshike


    It is chess game with a few different modes. 4 stars only because it freezes while finding random players some times.

  30. Satish shaw-avatar

    New version contains too many adds and when you play blitz there is always connection problem even i am on wifi.. from my point of view previous version was way better

  31. Mirza Qamar-avatar

    Very Worst Experience, can't understand your scoring policy. When ever win, get maximum 10 points and in case of lose get minimum -10 points Policy of score

  32. Angel Puig-avatar

    Fun chess experience and they've made the necessary upgrades and a 10 minute game which is awesome.

  33. Gangadhar Vaidy-avatar

    Good interface. Easy to use and fast. Bad rating process.

  34. Brothers in Christ-avatar

    Brothers in Christ


    I started with 854 EOP. With a win rate of 51% after 343 games in 3 months, I rate 969. But my friend got less than 700 EOP after signing up. She still does with a win rate of 33%. So how do some players rate over 1,000 EOP after just signing up? I also don't like the updated features on the app, but I can't play without downloading them. Aside from that, it's a good app, but it might benefit from allowing draw offers, recording games, and adhearing more closely to the FIDE Competition Rules.

  35. Leo Acosta K.-avatar

    Disgusting how you make the AI play in quick games, it is really annoying, not to mention the endelss unskipable ads. By far the worst chess app available

  36. Tom Bode-avatar

    I am beginner and look forward to playing at my level for a while, then others later. I also like that I have plenty of time to think about the next move

  37. NMitic-avatar

    One of the (if not the only) chess apps, you can actually play with friends normally.

  38. Jason Hall-avatar

    Moves pieces where you didn't put them. Disconnects all the time.

  39. Prashant Bothra-avatar

    After game is finished, it doesnt go to lobby abd button is irresponsive. Pls issue update asap.

  40. J Chisholm-avatar

    I've been searching for a decent Chess app to improve my skills for quite a while, and this 1 seems ok so far.

  41. Alex Rogers-avatar

    Dear team The app is great but a few changes would make it better compared to other chess apps and their features. Implement the following Upload your own pic not just from you're Facebook profile pic, which in my case is a pic of my child! Elo ranking system Be able to view top 50 in the world/region etc We should be able to view everyone's statistics/profile so we can choose to play that particular person or not, I hate playing someone with an unbeaten record of 100 wins & no loss

  42. Lisolam Makrwede-avatar

    Lisolam Makrwede


    This is a great game the only thing that I don't love about it are the ads that show up after every game

  43. Nikhil Mathew-avatar

    Game keeps getting disconnected even while my internet connection is strong and all other apps are working fine. I got disconnected in 3 out of 10 games. There is nothing more frustrating that losing a game due to disconnection when you are a queen or 2 rooks up!

  44. Rahul Joshi-avatar

    Very stable and good interface It got offline once but resumed smoothly. Overall happy with it

  45. Roberto Reghin-avatar

    Great app! Easy to use and very fast to play online.

  46. FARHAN MOHD-avatar

    After every game a page to purchase the subscription appears with a little cross button on top right hand side which gets covered by google ad. I everytime have to close the app and reopen, this is so annoying. Very silly bug left by developer.

  47. Sandeep Chowdary-avatar

    Sandeep Chowdary


    It is taking too much time to open the app if internet is available with high speed

  48. Andrei Hag-avatar

    A lot of hackers. You start a normal game and in 1 minute all of your time has drained while his is the same 5:00. And he barely moves a piece every 20 seconds. Doesn't let you do anything as his profile doesn't exist. Unplayable.

  49. Tasin - kun-avatar

    The overall game is really good but i dont like 5 minute quick match mode cause in this mode most of matches are used to end by timeout so please add another multiplayer mode of 48 hours where each player will get a time of 48 hours hope you understood and please make this change beacause its important for your own game future.

  50. Sivaraj K-avatar

    Game disconnecting while having strong net connection. Too much of frustation

  51. Folajimi Bajomo-avatar

    Folajimi Bajomo


    I like the game but other people take too long to make their move it took them 5 mintes to take 1 move

  52. Kenichi Then-avatar

    It has so much ads, Also, the reconnecting system doesn't work as it must be, even though you have a good connection, it doesn't necessarily puts you in a good ping.

  53. Assassin-avatar

    Smells fishy about this app, A.I disguised as an online player, it wasn't real. it started to give out valuable pieces which could lead to losing position in a game, it's easy to figure out to identify pressure points.

  54. Rene Garcia-avatar

    Overall I like the game but a few changes would be nice such as having a cancel option or button when going into a quick match , making it 10 min per player instead of 5min , and not making the game mode 48hr which is way too long for a chess match .

  55. Allen Auchenbaugh-avatar

    Allen Auchenbaugh


    This is a nice game to relearn chess. It does have a bad habit in computer mode, of claiming a draw as soon as you corner its king but have not yet reached Checkmate but will in a move or two.

  56. Tanner Benson-avatar

    After playing one game with my gf, it went to a subscription page, to get out of that there is an "x" on the top right that was covered by an ad. Had to restart the app to use it again. Completely unacceptable.

  57. Rakesh Manoharan-avatar

    Rakesh Manoharan


    Good app just need to improve on connection issue by which rank gets to low

  58. McBwNL-avatar

    As a chess master, I really enjoy playing with all these players online without having to do much. It's obviously the best chess online app you can find on Playstore. If you're interested in chess, you MUST download this. I'm NOT a bot.

  59. miggy rey-avatar

    Very sensitive to internet and hard to reconnect. What is this? Try to improve your programming! It will not allow to overlap the clock one way or another. You got problem with the clock. Improve it.

  60. Patrick Bates-avatar

    Only on this app cause messenger chess lags att. This one is 48 hrs or 5mins nothing in between.....ugh.#smh

    Since this app has been updated and taken over by a new "whatever" there is a delay in it's initial start. Can't play a single freaking game because of the buffering delay!

  62. Alf Warren-avatar

    Still learning this one it promising found new chess friends had a lot of good games

  63. Mayele Josh-avatar

    The App is good i like it because you get to play with other people from all over the world but it takes long to load or connect. Why is it so?

  64. Cole Platt-avatar

    Good game. Wish you could plan moves or backtrack the game.

  65. gary rhoads-avatar

    Now it's saying to update,so I opened the app and there is no update available. I can't open the app????finally able to update.

  66. Rohit Mishra-avatar

    It's good overall, but just tell how do I get back to my home screen without closing the application when the screen for try for free comes in.

  67. Moon Butt-avatar

    This game is very good if you are Good in chess.Also it is very good for beginers as it tells when it is checkmate. I would recomend playing it.

  68. Dermott McIntosh-avatar

    Fairly poor, game lags out and freezes a lot. When you only have five minute rounds and the game looses connection for 3 of these minutes. Would suggest looking elsewhere

    Probably this app is great , but in terms of graphics I hope it will fix and upgraded.

  70. conrad65000-avatar

    Good but no ability to pre-move, making time scrambles a bit of a lottery.

  71. Hakim Fuad-avatar

    the server connection sucks..always defeated by time (because of disconnecting to the server) . need to freeze the time countdown when the connection to the server is bad..

  72. Jamie Bowman-avatar

    Too expensive subscription and adds are annoying and often or would be 5 as the app itself is the best I've played on my phone

  73. carl Bott-avatar

    Really good app, I like how u can invite ur mates to play with u.

  74. TomTom Hiliza-avatar

    Fairly good app. The challenge is its constant reloading especially when the going is tough.

  75. Shantnu Gupta-avatar

    Very bad app... If you lost you lose 30-40 ratings but if you won you gain only +1,+6,+7 like that a very bad app.. I really dislike it. rating system of this game is to bad very bad

  76. L1GH7H3AD3D-avatar

    Trying to move instantly will still remove 5 seconds from clock. Got flagged before even being able to select a piece while having 2 seconds on clock

    Bad connexion. .. losing always from time because of the connection and it's not from my device




    Please apply all the possible rules in the legit chess game. My opponent had only king left but I went down on time .. - the result should be a draw not my deafeat because he didn't have any other pieces.

  87. Sahil Jugiani-avatar
