WordPress for Android: Version 5.4

Hello WordPress users! Version 5.4 of the WordPress for Android app is now available in the Google Play Store.

Gravatar update

Did you just take a great selfie? You can update your Gravatar from the app on the Me screen. Tap your profile picture, and follow the prompts to take a new photo or pick an image from your device’s photo library.

Smart Lock for Passwords integration

Signing in with a WordPress.com account is easier than ever with Smart Lock for Passwords, the Google password manager. If you signed in to your account on your computer using Google’s Chrome browser, the username and password fields will be automatically pre-filled when you open the app — you can even manage several identities.


Other Changes

Version 5.4 also comes with a few other fixes:

  • Fixed comment previews with images in the Comment List screen.
  • Fixed an issue with tag display in the Reader.
  • Fixed a problem sometimes removed the Themes option after sign-in.

You can track our development progress for the next release by visiting our 5.5 milestone on GitHub.


Do you like keeping up with what’s new in the app? Do you enjoy testing new stuff before anyone else? Our testers have access to beta versions with updates shipped directly through Google Play. The beta versions may have new features, new fixes — and possibly new bugs! Testers make it possible for us to improve the overall app experience, and offer us invaluable development feedback.
