Press Release

Posted on June 17, 2013 by @feedly

We are in the process of finalizing the migration from the Google Reader back end to the new feedly cloud backend. This is an important post to help you prepare for the final step.

Preparing

It is important that you run version 16 of feedly on all your devices.

On the desktop, you can go to http://www.feedly.com/index.html and manually re-install the app and restart the browser. The latest feedly desktop number is 16.0.512.

On iOS and Android, it is important that you go to the App Stores and make sure that you have the latest update. If you are not sure, you can un-install the app and re-install it.

Sync’ing via the cloud

Over the next 2-3 days you should expect to receive a green banner message (desktop) or a green card (mobile). This is the notification that 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.

It is important at that point that you restart the app on all your other devices so that they all connect to the feedly cloud.

The one part we did not migrate from google reader is your history (too much data) so you have to expect that you are starting from a blank history and your unread counts will be reset. This is a one time issue.

In some cases, there might be a gap of a few days in the saved items because migrating a few million accounts takes a few days. We have done our best to minimize that gap but we apologize if you are missing a few saved items. This is a one time issue too.

How do I login to my feedly cloud account?

To simplify the transition, we are going to continue to use Google Authentication to let you access your Feedly Cloud. We will be adding support for Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr and LinkedIn shortly.

How do I know which version I am running?

At the bottom of the left selector, there is metadata information showing which version of feedly you are running and if you are connect to the feedly cloud or not. The latest version is 16.0.512. If you are not running that version, see the first step.
