(Pocket-lint) – Looking for inspiration for your next Wordle game? You are in the right place. The New York Times has an official online Wordle assistant, called Wordlebot, which recommends different starting words to users in normal or hard mode. We’ve collected those exact words below and explained everything you need to know about Wordle and Wordlebot for those of you unfamiliar with this word game.
What is Wordle and what is Wordlebot?
Wordle is a browser-based word guessing game that exploded in popularity last year. There is no app to download, just visit this website and get started. The game gives you six chances to guess a five-letter word, and every day the page is updated with a new word. The word is the same for all players around the world. You can learn more about how the game works by checking out Pocket-lint’s in-depth guide here.
The New York Times, which acquired Wordle, launched Wordlebot in the spring of 2022. It is available online via a web browser, but is restricted to paying subscribers of Times Games, News or All Access.

Presented as an online tool, Wordlebot analyzes the Wordle puzzles you’ve completed to provide you with overall scores – for luck and skill – on a scale of 0-99. It also details what you could have done differently during towers. Wordlebot reportedly has its own dictionary of about 4,500 words that it thinks players could reasonably guess, and it assigns each of them the probability of being a solution, according to the New York Times blog post.
The publication has also made some improvements to its Wordle helper over the past few months, including recommending new seed words for users.
What is the best starting word for Wordle?
The New York Times Wordlebot originally recommended that regular mode Wordle users start with the word CRANE. But, as of August 2022, Wordlebot now recommends the word SLATE. If you are on hard mode, the recommended word has changed from LEAST to DEALT. However, the Wordlebot assistant continues to say that these four words are excellent options.
