Android Oreo adds support for app shortcuts by long pressing on the app icon. This has already been implemented on the iOS app (T114297). More information is available at https://developer.android.com/guide/topics/ui/shortcuts.html. As an example, I attached a screenshot of the iOS version.
As a frequent Wikipedia App user, I want a faster way to access commonly features without having to open to the Explore feed every time.
Proposed on Android
Add initial app shortcuts to the app icon on long press.
- Search - opens to search screen in app - use icon "ic_search" from Material icons set
- Random - opens a random article in the article stack - use icon "ic_casino" from Material icons set
- Continue reading - open the article stack to the top-most article tab - use icon "icon_arrow_forward" from Material icons set
Note that the order of shortcuts in the menu cascades out from the App icon, with Search appearing first, then Continue Reading, followed by Random.
