WordPress for Android: Version 5.7

Hello WordPress users! Version 5.7 of the WordPress for Android app is now available in the Google Play Store.

New “Plans” section in My Site

Starting with 5.7, you can see your current WordPress.com plan and learn more about the benefits we offer in other plans.


Manage your followers and viewers from the “People Management” screen

You’re now able to use the app to invite new Administrators, Editors, Authors or Contributors to your site, or remove unwanted followers.


Other Changes

Version 5.7 also comes with a few other changes and fixes:

  • Reader tweaks in the Post Detail screen for tablets.
  • Keeps the “View Site” link visible for newly created users.
  • Fixes a rare crash when creating a new account.

You can track our development progress for the next release by visiting our 5.8 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.
