Redesigned for more connection

We’re working to make it easier to find, read, and follow what you love.

New navigation

Here are the three main elements of the new experience:

Easy access to everything you need

To start, we’re making it faster to get around Medium with a persistent, accessible navigation menu. It gives you quick access to core elements of your Medium experience — your home page, lists, notifications, account settings, and more.

A smoother, faster reading experience

We’ve made it easier than ever to discover stories and dive right into reading by expanding stories in place, without the page refreshing or a new one opening. Claps, responses, and bookmarks are always accessible at the bottom of your reading screen, a reminder that Medium is about reading and engaging.

More context and connection

Easily discover relevant context about what you’re reading — information presented on the right-hand side will update based on what you’re viewing in the center. On the home page, the right-hand side will help you discover content and writers you might like. On story pages, you’ll see more about the author, as well as have the opportunity to explore related topics and authors. On author profile pages, you’ll learn more about them, including their “about” information, a sample of who they follow, and easily access the lists they’ve created.

We’re not done

We plan to roll out this experience over the next several weeks, with more enhancements after that. But with any big change, we expect to learn as we go — and a big part of that will be hearing from the readers and creators of Medium. So please let us know what you think and how it could be better.
