Comments on mobile

The ability to read and make comments on mobile has been one of the most oft-requested features on our site. We’re happy to say that you can now do just that.

A long time coming

When I say comments on mobile was often requested, I wasn’t joking: many readers have asked us when they’d be able to read comments on their phones over the past few years.

It was a weakness of our site. We’ve spent a lot of time creating a vibrant, worthwhile community to comment on our articles. As I’ve said before, we consider comments a vital part of our articles and we’re proud of the discussions we see on The Conversation.

But, if you were reading an article on the mobile version of our site, you missed those discussions. And more and more people are reading The Conversation on their phones.

Now, after many a request, those readers can get involved in our community.
