Description

Background

One of the hypotheses we had was that a Wikipedia Preview partner would prefer for their readers to stay within their content when looking at Previews, as opposed to being directed out. We have began to hear this request from partners.

Request

Design WP experience on mobile that allows a user to scroll and read the whole Wikipedia article
