26K 591 320

As many of you know, we've been revamping parts of the Wattpad website over the past few months. We've introduced you to new designs of the profile, story reading experience, and notifications page. Our team is also working hard on other exciting web improvements that we can't wait for you to see in the coming months.

By now, you might be wondering why we're doing this. The reason is two-fold.

First, we have invested heavily over the last few years in updating the brand and experience of the Wattpad mobile apps (iOS and Android), making constant improvements based on feedback from our app community. In doing so, we've learned a lot and now we want to bring a consistent experience to you on the website as well.

Second, Wattpad on the web hasn't seen many changes in the last 10 years. Through the community's feedback, we believe now is the time to give the website a refresh. We are excited to finally bring a lot of the new design, functionality, and learnings from our apps to our web community to enjoy.

Thank you to everyone who has already provided ideas and suggestions that have helped shape many of the experiences you see today. Our company's philosophy is to continually get feedback and make improvements. With your feedback and support, we are thrilled to be able to bring a better experience for everyone. You can forward us your feedback via Wattpad Support. To provide more immersive feedback and receive sneak previews of upcoming features, please join our Beta Program.
