Hope you are all safe and well. We have just released v3.1.0 of the Commons
app for beta testing last week, containing basic integration for Wiki Loves
You can find more details about our implementation (and the challenges that

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Mobile_app/WLM_release , but the
summary is that WLM pins have been added to our Nearby map, for WLM
