Here's what I think is a sensible thing to do: If a user unchecks a beta feature, then we should automatically uncheck the "Automatically enable all new beta features" checkbox. If they check it, all the checkboxes become checked again.
This doesn't seem to be happening with Chromium 66 on the same OS.

I think this would complicate the RelatedChanges a bit and might possibly trigger controversies and conflicts with people who like the way which RelatedChanges works now.

Hi @RHo. Stumbled upon this task task recently. Sounds very interesting! Just leaving a little thought I have.
Fri, Jun 15
The 'ADD OR EDIT LANGUAGES' button is barely accessible in landscape mode on my Galaxy j1 ace (5.1.1).
The simple uses cases noted above seems to be working fine for me too on a Galaxy j1 ace (5.1.1) using Wikipedia v2-7-234-alpha-2018-06-14. Interestingly the following case doesn't seem to be working as expected, though.
A contributor on English Wikipedia reported something similar to this task today. Before I go and create yet another task could someone confirm/deny if this is related?
I just noted an issue with this in version 2.7.234-alpha-2018-06-14 of the app. It seems that the feed is getting refreshed regardless of whether the languages are changed or not. To be precise the feed is refreshed unnecessarily in the following cases:

Could you please link to the discussion page where this was discussed the last time? I could ask them about the current consensus if I have more information.
There are no update since June 8th about that.

I would like to add another update. on a Galaxy j1 ace.
There seems to be a strong opposition to deploy the new Special:Watchlist in wikinews. See linked discussion
@pmiazga Sorry for not mentioning that before. Anyways:

Thank you, and sorry you have to face that.
@Trizek-WMF Someone seems to be detailing about issues he finds with the new edit filters update in enwikinews. The discussion could be found at https://en.wikinews.org/wiki/Wikinews:Water_cooler/technical#RfC:_Plans_to_graduate_the_New_Filters_on_Watchlist_out_of_beta.
A general suggestion about announcing the graduation of any eta feature. It would be nice if there is a notice about this below the corresponding beta feature in Special:Preferences#mw-prefsection-betafeatures. Though the audience might not be so high, it would still gains some attention (if designed properly) and would possibly kindle someone to provide suggestion when it's most needed. When it comes to propagating news we should do it in as much places as we cane and I find Special:Preferences to be yet another possibility.

I also announced the following english language projects:
Hi, I just annouced the English Wikipedia right now.

I guess the placeholder could also include the purpose of the text box. Like:

Just a little suggestion how about putting a little notice in Special:Watchlist itself, informing about the new Watchlist UI that will be landing in a few days and thus preparing the users instead of surprising them. It could also inform them that they would find instructions to disable it once it is deployed. I'm not sure if this has already been tried.

@Dbrant I filed as I haven't customised anything related to clipboards. Further, I have no issues copying and pasting in other apps such as note taking apps browser etc. I face this issue only in the Wikipedia app that too only when copying/cutting and pasting English text. Yes, I don't face this issue when I copy other language text in the edit window and pasting it elsewhere. I find this too weird.

@Dbrant How is this task a duplicate of T141587: Changing app language does not automatically update the explore feed language ?

Just to post another update I also observe the behaviour described in my previous comment on a Galaxy j1 ace (Android 5.1.1) when using the alpha version of the app dated 21-05-2018,
@RHo I think the image for Example page issues bottom sheet is incorrect.
@RHo I don't think it's fixed yet. I could reproduce this with the steps to reproduce noted in the task description.

I'm facing this issue for quite some time now. I am getting a little frustrated by the inability to disable a beta-feature without having to turn-off "Automatically enable all new beta features". I find this frustrating as I do not like to turn-off "Automatically enable all new beta features" just to disable an existing beta feature as I might forget to enable "Automatically enable all new beta features" back again and might possibly miss a new beta feature just as @TheDJ mentions in his comment.
@Volker_E Thanks for the quick heads-up! I was just splitting the huge comment into separate tasks. I'll stop for now with what I've created so far. I'll split more of them after you're finished updating your comment.
Some suggestions based on what I saw:

I suspect the fact that I was able to capture "Today's featured article" and "Picture of the day" cards for some date in the future was just incidental. I couldn't get those reliably. In most cases when I set a future date, I see no content in the Explore feed or I get an error about unable to connect to the internet like the following one:

Actually, I was about to suggest that the users should be somehow notified that thanks for the "Move" and "Upload" logs are disabled as the corresponding revisions are already thankable. Then, I noticed that the "Move" logs are currently thankable. Is this intentional making the task description stale OR is the task description still valid and the "Move" logs are thankable by accident?
