If you’ve logged into Feedly, recently, you’ve probably seen this message:
“[IMPORTANT] Prepare for the final step of the migration from Google Reader to the feedly cloud.”
A Feedly update to complete migration? I thought I was already migrated?
If you’re like me (have tons of feeds), you may have had a slight moment of panic as the thought of losing all your feeds swept over you.
Here’s what the Feedly message means:
Check your Feedly app version an all devices!!!
Whether you’re using a browser extension, iOS app or Android tablet version, you need to make sure you’re running the latest version:
You need to be running version 16.0.512 or higher (crazy version number, right?).
- iOS, check the app store for an update if you’re not running the right version–some may need to uninstall and reinstall the Feedly app.
- Android, check your app store to find an update if you’re not running the right version–some may need to uninstall and reinstall the Feedly app.
- Those using a browser extension, check and see what version you’re using. If it hasn’t autoupdated, you may need to uninstall and reinstall the feedly app.
If you’re using Google Chrome, the process is quick and easy:
Other browsers work in a similar fashion. Just check your plugins/extensions and find the version number for Feedly. Worse case scenario, uninstall/reinstall Feedly to get the most current version (you may also notice that when you load Feedly in your browser, it briefly shows what version you’re running).
There are a few other things you should know about Feedly’s transitioning you to their cloud:
- It is important that you restart the app on all your devices!
- You should see a green banner message (desktop) or a green card (mobile). This means your feeds and categories and up to 1,000 starred items have been successfully migrated to the Feedly cloud and the articles you are seeing are coming from the Feedly service.
- Your Google Reader history has not been migrated (too much data).
- There might be a gap of a few days in the saved items.
- Feedly is fetching about 20 million feeds every day. They can fetch 100 million, but some domains might be throttling. Feedly is working hard to get whitelisted. 🙂
It’s cool to learn that they will be adding support for Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr and LinkedIn authentication, too!
