Helping build and maintain relationships with creators you love

Last year in August, we announced our new mobile app and began rolling it out to a small number of beta users — a big step towards a more relational Medium experience that is oriented around following so that readers can have a deeper connection to their favorite writers, while writers and publications can more actively engage and grow their audience.

We’ve been iterating and refining this new app experience to address the feedback coming from you. …


Last year we launched a new responses experience for our users that reimagined how readers and writers connect on Medium. Today we’re excited to announce a highly anticipated upgrade: threaded responses.

Threaded responses will help readers and writers interact seamlessly and engage in dynamic, contextually nuanced discussions.

Before this change, you could only read one level of responses in the side-panel.

Now that we’ve introduced threaded responses, you’ll notice a reply button on the bottom right of all responses. You can tap on this and respond to existing responses that other users have left. This is what it looks like:
