We're pleased to announce our latest update to the Wikipedia Android app
available on the Google Play store! (For devices without Google Play
services, you may download
the app directly)
The major highlight from this update is: *synchronized reading lists*!
Articles that you add (or have already added) to your reading lists can now
be synchronized to your Wikipedia account, so that your reading list
collection will always be available on any device on which you use the app,
whether it's an Android or iOS device (<- separate announcement
You should see a prompt to enable syncing when you install or upgrade the
app, or you may enable/disable the sync feature in the app settings.
As a reminder, articles that you add to reading lists are also saved for
offline reading by default, so that you can access them even without
internet connectivity. You may also control which lists are saved offline
by going to the "My lists" tab and tapping the overflow menu (three dots)
next to each list.
Cheers, and happy reading!
