What’s new in this app:

* A major design update (we went native!)
* Editing – help improve Wikipedia articles from your phone!
* Everything is faster, whether you’re searching, browsing, or settling a bar bet
* Table of contents to help you navigate long article and get to the information you need
* Wikipedia Zero support – data charges waived for participating mobile operators (Wikipedia as always is of course freely licensed)

Additional features:

* Search any language Wikipedia
* Bookmark pages

* Recent browsing history

You can install Wikipedia Beta alongside your current version of Wikipedia for Android, so you can test our new features before they go live for all Wikipedia for Android users. Your feedback will help us fix bugs and decide what features to focus on next.

    I wish Saving an article contain all the languages that support the saved article not only the language that saved. I mean if I save a (singer bio) in english its should be saved in all the languages not only English.
