Users can't post inline comments but can copy story text - Android

Hi Wattpadders,

We have been getting reports that Android users no longer have the option to post inline comments on stories, but do have the option to copy story text. To the best of our knowledge, only users with Xiaomi (Redmi) devices are experiencing this issue. This impacts reader experience by blocking them from commenting on particular paragraphs, but it is also an issue for writers, who have expressed concern that their stories can be copied more easily. We take creators' rights very seriously, and our team is currently working on resolving this issue as quickly as possible. Please feel free to reach out to us if you have any questions. You can click on the 'Contact us' button below to send a ticket. 

If someone has posted your original Wattpad story and claimed it as their own, please submit a report to our Trust & Safety team. You can read more about reporting copyright infringement by checking out our Copyright FAQ.

Thank you for your patience and understanding,

The Wattpad Support Team
