Creating a study set on the Quizlet Android app

Creating your own study set allows you to focus on exactly what you want to learn on Quizlet. It’s easy to do this from anywhere using the Quizlet app on your Android device!

Creating a study set on Android

Tap the Create icon at the bottom of the screen, then tap Create study set.

Enter a set title. If you’d like to add an optional description with more information about your set, tap + Add a description.


Entering terms and definitions


Enter the terms that you’re studying and their matching definitions. For example, if you were studying Spanish vocabulary, you could add “Hola” as a term and “Hello” as the definition. A term/definition pair is referred to as a card.

For most languages, Quizlet will auto-detect the language of your term or definition based on the word or phrase you’ve typed. If Quizlet doesn’t detect the correct language, tap Select language (or the name of the language we’ve detected) to choose the correct option.


Note: You won’t be able to save your set until you’ve added at least two terms and definitions and selected a language for both.


Adding and removing terms and definitions


To add a new card, tap the plus icon.

To insert a new card in between two existing cards swipe left on a card and tap the plus icon.

To delete a card, swipe left and tap the trash can icon.



When you start typing a term, Quizlet will show you popular terms added by other users that match the letters you've typed. To choose an auto-suggested term, tap the one you want from the list below the term text box.

Once you've chosen a term or typed one in, Quizlet will show you the most popular definitions other users have entered for that term. To choose an auto-suggested definition, select it from the list below the definition text box.

Saving your set


When you’re finished adding terms and definitions, tap the checkmark at the top of the screen to save your set.

You’ll then be able to study this new set on the Quizlet app and website -- and others will be able to find it if they search for your username and the set is public.

Draft sets

While you’re working on a new study set on the Android app, Quizlet will periodically save your work as a draft. Drafts are only stored on your device until you save them. Once you save your set, you’ll be able to access it on any device as long as you’re signed in to your account.

Please note that unpublished draft sets (which are only visible to you on your device’s Home feed) will not sync with the Quizlet website or other devices until they are saved.




How do I add images to my sets?


Quizlet users with Quizlet Plus or Quizlet Teacher subscriptions can add images from their device’s library on the app by tapping the camera icon in the term or definition text box. You can choose a photo from your library or take a photo with your camera.

Users with free accounts can only add images from the Quizlet website, as we don’t currently support our free image gallery on our mobile apps. To learn more about adding images from the website, go here.

Can I create diagram sets on the Android app?

It’s not currently possible to create diagram sets on the Quizlet iOS and Android apps. If you create diagram sets on the Quizlet website, you can study them on both the apps and the website!

Can I format text on the app?


Yes -- you can bold text by putting it between asterisks *like this.* If you choose Math/Symbols or Chemistry as your term or definition language, text between asterisks won’t be bolded as asterisks are used in different contexts when studying those subjects. We currently don't offer other text formatting options, but are considering adding more in the future.


Can I make some text in my set optional?


Yes! Text enclosed in parentheses (like this) won’t be read by our text to speech audio and isn’t required as part of the answer for it to be marked right when studying. Since text in parentheses is optional, putting hints or example sentences in parentheses is a great way to add context to your terms and definitions.
