fd2514b0-3a87-4a54-b2c6-3382d09ca966 Best New Features in WordPress 6.6 (for Website Creators and Owners)

WordPress 6.6 is scheduled for release on July 16, so now is a good time to explore the new features that await us. Although the beta version is already available, these changes are likely to make your WordPress experience easier and more enjoyable.

This roundup highlights some upcoming new features. Block themes allow you to build every aspect of a site with blocks in the Site Editor. In contrast, older, classic themes use blocks only for page or post content.

How to test WordPress 6.6

Remember the ways you can test WordPress, such as using the  Studio app , the Local app   , or on a subdomain.

PluginInstall and activate the WordPress Beta Tester plugin   on a WordPress installation. (Select the “Bleeding Edge” channel and the “Beta/RC Only” stream.)
Direct downloadDownload the  Beta 1 version (zip)  and install it on a WordPress website.
Command lineUse this  WP-CLI command  :
wp core update --version=6.6-beta1
PlayGroundUse a  WordPress Playground 6.6 Beta 1 instance  to test the software directly in your browser. This might be the easiest way out there – no separate sites or configuration. Just click and go! 
I remind you that on Blogpocket we have  our own PlayGround page  with the Gutenberg plugin installed.
