Fresh subjects requested for exciting new opportunity

Tumblr Labs seeks additional volunteers to undergo new, non-invasive experiments on Android. To participate, go to Labs settings on your Android device and flip the switch ON. (Web-based subjects apply here.

Exposure to the following experiments falls within acceptable limits:

  • Doodle Posts by @vanillaburritos: Enables a new kind of post you can draw on with your finger.
  • Sticky Audio Player by @bitterorca and @brendanp: Docks audio posts to your dash so you can play them and scroll.
  • Tap to Play GIFs by @vanillaburritos: Keeps gifs in a Schrodinger state until you tap them into life so they don’t bog down your phone’s memory. 


  • Android machine with the latest Tumblr update.
  • Tolerance to extreme euphoria.

Standard disclaimer: Tumblr Labs are experimental features that were designed and developed in someone’s spare time. Labs experiments are not guaranteed to work the first time or any time. Labs experiments may abruptly and unexpectedly cease functioning, or disappear altogether. Real features are not regularly tested for compatibility with Labs experiments. To disable a Tumblr Labs feature, turn the switch off. New Labs experiments will be added and old ones removed, possibly (probably) without notice. By reading this message you imply a positive predisposition towards Labs experiments as long as they last and accept that things will inevitably change as time moves on and on. Labs experiments have not been tested on live animals, your taxonomic rank notwithstanding. Please participate in Tumblr Labs only as prescribed.
