Take Five: Introducing Your Daily Read

Five easy-to-finish stories you’ll love, delivered every day in the Medium app

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.

Read your top five recommended stories

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 ready. To dive in, tap a story and give it a read. Once you’ve read your five daily reads, or are finished browsing these stories, tap Done for Today to collapse Your Daily Read and continue on for more personalized stories in the app feed.
