Create Shallow Dive Deck for Watchlist
Closed, ResolvedPublic


  • As the Wikipedia community continues to grow and evolve, listening and responding to our users' needs and requests is crucial. One such proposal that has resonated with many users is implementing the Watchlist feature within our Wikipedia apps.
  • "Can you hear us now?" encapsulates the collective voice of our Wikipedia community, who have consistently expressed their desire for a Watchlist feature in our apps.
  • The feature enables users to maintain a list of articles they're interested in, making it easy to stay updated on their changes and edits.

The Watchlist feature is essential for several reasons:

  1. It allows users to stay informed about changes to the articles they care about, fostering a more engaged user experience.
  2. It promotes a sense of ownership and responsibility among users, as they can keep track of and contribute to the articles they follow.
  3. It encourages users to stay active within the community, driving user retention and participation.

  • Recognizing the importance of the Watchlist feature, we successfully introduced it in the Android app in 2020.
  • The implementation has been well-received, with many users praising the feature's utility and ease of use.
  • As a result, it is now more important than ever to ensure this valuable feature is accessible across all platforms and devices.
