If you’ve been selected to participate in beta testing the Future of Tumblr™️, this is the place to find more info.
Who gets to be in the beta? How can I get in on this?
We randomly selected a small slice of people on Tumblr to try out the beta. If you’re one of them, please share your feedback with us by clicking the “Feedback” button in the lower right corner of your dashboard.
Unfortunately, we are not opening up this beta test to applicants at this time.
So what’s different?
The beta should be smoother, faster, and more accessible. You’ll also see updated design elements (like color and font tweaks), the option for grid view in your likes and tag pages, and a web implementation of Color Palettes.
Right now, all of the above will apply just to the dashboard, your likes page, and tag pages. Everything else will look familiar.
Also (and this is important), there’s a new meatballs menu (●●●) located at the top right of each post. Clicking this gives you the option to copy the post link, unfollow the Tumblr who made or reblogged the post, or report a violation to our Community Guidelines.
What features are missing?
Some parts of messaging, sharing a post (the airplane icon), most of the keyboard shortcuts, and a few other things haven’t yet been built for the beta. If you need these features, no problem—just click the toggle to exit the beta test.
How do I switch back?
There’s a toggle right at the top of your dashboard that you can use to turn the beta on and off. Just flip it to go back to your usual Tumblr experience.
You can also turn it off by navigating to your account settings, clicking on the Dashboard section, and flipping the beta toggle to “off.”
