Today, we’re launching our official beta program for the Medium Android app. We’ve been hard at work building new features, and we’re excited to share them with you. We’d like to invite you to help shape the future of the app by providing valuable feedback on features before they are shipped to the world.
We’re looking for engaged users of Medium, especially those who use the app multiple times a week. There’s no upper limit on the number of beta users for now. Here’s how to get started:
Our app team is on a mission to help readers like you discover the stories on Medium that you’ll love. Not only are we putting these stories at your fingertips, but we also want to put you in control of your app experience. We’ve made some recent updates to do this better. We love hearing from readers, so leave us a comment on this post if you’ve got feedback or an idea for us.
Each day we’ll share the top five stories recommended for you at the top of the app home, and send you a push notification when they’re…
The Medium app is designed for people who love to read. Period. And that means our team is constantly working on ways to improve the way you experience stories on the app (on iOS and Android), whether it’s on your morning commute or cozied up in bed at the end of the day.
We always appreciate when readers tell us which features they love and which could use some polish, so we’ve made a few important updates over the past month to help you focus on the story — and not so much the screen.
Stories on Medium should challenge…

SAN FRANCISCO - A native Android app for Medium, born into captivity two months ago, was set free at an undisclosed location in western San Francisco on Wednesday.
According to officials, Medium for Android, which underwent extensive testing and training to prepare for the move, is the first official Medium app for Android to be released from captivity. Video footage shows the app initially reluctant to leave the cage, but eventually taking its first tentative steps into the world.
The app was picked up almost immediately by a passing hiker, who promptly created a Medium account via Google and began writing a new post about her serendipitous discovery, directly from the Android app itself.
