Wikipedia announced today a beta version of its Android app that will add editing features for the first time. The update also includes a new design and faster browsing experience.

While Wikipedia users have been able to make edits from their mobile browsers since last year, this is the first in-app integration for the site.

If you want to get editing right away, you can download the Wikipedia Beta app from Google Play. Otherwise, you’ll have to wait for the features to finish testing and make their way to the main app.
