Media Viewer and your wiki[edit]

Media Viewer lets you view images in larger size, for a more immersive experience.


As you may know, we have been developing Media Viewer, a new tool for browsing multimedia content on Wikimedia sites. This tool has been tested extensively since November, as a beta feature. The Multimedia team is now ready to enable Media Viewer as the default experience for viewing images, and would like to release it here on Thursday, 24 April. If you have not tried Media Viewer yet, we encourage you to do so and to give us feedback, before we release it more widely.

Can you help prepare for a smooth release of Media Viewer in your community?

  • We invite you to create a local page for Media Viewer, and copy over some of its demonstration galleries, and also to invite community members to try out the tool and share their feedback on that local discussion page.
  • Make sure all of the interface is translated correctly.
  • Translate and link to the Help page on

Thank you for your help! Please let me know if you have any questions that are not answered on the help page. We look forward to bringing a richer multimedia experience to your community!
