Wikipedia today announced a redesigned version of its Android app that not only lets you quickly check facts and verify details, but also recommends you content to read on the go. You can download the new version now from Google Play.

First and foremost, the Wikimedia Mobile Apps team has redesigned the home screen of the app. Front and center is the new Explore feed — which was added to Wikipedia for iOS in March — that shows recommended images, news content, articles based on what you’ve read, and so on.

If today’s content doesn’t interest you, simply scroll further down in the feed. You will see featured content from previous days that can might still be interesting — remember that Wikipedia isn’t just about news. If you don’t want to see a certain card, just swipe it away to hide it.
