I heard Scribd launched a new app, but I still see the Scribd app on my phone. How do I access your new app?
Please manually update your app via the iOS App Store or Google Play store on your device. This will replace your existing Scribd app with our updated app, Everand. This will be the destination for your ebooks, audiobooks, magazines, newspapers, podcasts, and sheet music. Please use the same email address and password you used to sign up for Scribd in order to log into the Everand app. If you would like to access any saved documents, please download the new Scribd app via the iOS App Store or Google Play store, or visit Scribd.com.
Why am I still being billed by Scribd, Inc. if I am now only using Everand?
You will see Scribd, Inc. in your billing records because Scribd, Inc. is the company that oversees Everand. Scribd, Inc. is the merchant of record for your subscription, so when you subscribe to our products, you will be billed by Scribd, Inc. This single subscription unlocks access to the content across all three of our platforms: Scribd, Everand, and SlideShare.

What is Everand?
Everand™ is your new home for stories and knowledge. A monthly subscription lets you explore millions of ebooks, audiobooks, podcasts, magazines, newspapers, sheet music, and so much more. Read where and how you want — across devices and even offline.
Why are you creating a new app?
We are proud to be one of the world’s largest digital libraries with material ranging from documents and community-uploaded content to ebooks and audiobooks from publishers, plus a host of other content including podcasts, magazines, news articles, and sheet music. This volume and variety has allowed us to offer something to everyone — but creates confusion for those who are primarily searching for documents and research versus those primarily interested in finding ebooks and audiobooks. We’ve listened and will be separating our content and creating a new product, Everand, to make it easier for you to find what you want most.
Are you still supporting documents and presentations on your platforms?
Documents and presentations will continue to be found on and be shareable to Scribd and SlideShare. We maintain that these content types are a big bet for the future and will continue to invest in our document and presentation creators across our entire product suite.
What is Scribd?
Scribd is a digital document library, with over 170 million community-uploaded documents and counting. Find and upload content on every topic and niche, from academic papers and legal documents, to DIY hobbies, manuals, and more. To share a document to Scribd, you must be the copyright holder to or have the permission of the document’s copyright holder. Read more on that in our Copyright FAQs.
Why was my Scribd app replaced with Everand?
We have evolved our products to house distinct content types, ebooks and audiobooks or documents and professional content. Your app has updated automatically to reflect this change in our products. The updated app called Everand, is your new home for the ebooks, audiobooks and more that you’ve come to know and love with your existing Scribd subscription. Documents can still be discovered and uploaded to Scribd, but you’ll need to download the new Scribd app on iOS or Android. Please continue to use your existing Scribd login and password to enjoy our robust content offerings across both Scribd and Everand products.
Can I still find ebooks, audiobooks, podcasts, and magazines on Scribd?
Although you may see recommendations for ebooks and audiobooks on Scribd, you will only be able to consume them on the Everand app or Everand.com. You will still be able to find and read documents like academic papers, legal documents, manuals, and more on Scribd.
How do I log into Scribd and Everand on my mobile device?

Are there restrictions to how many books I will be able to read with an Everand subscription?
For certain ebooks and audiobooks, there are monthly limits. One benefit of our diverse library is that we will always have something you can read in the meantime. Your subscription will unlock access to a selection of original titles published by Everand, magazines, articles, and unlimited podcasts.
I thought that as a subscriber I had unlimited access to content on Scribd. Does the introduction of Everand mean that my content will be more limited?
Certain ebook and audiobook content on our platforms has always had monthly limits. The introduction of Everand as the new home for this content does not change these limitations.
With the introduction of Everand, where will I find ebooks and audiobooks?
You will soon find your ebooks, audiobooks, podcasts, magazines, articles, and sheet music on Everand.
Will I still be able to access documents on Scribd?
Yes, all documents can and will still be found on Scribd.
Will I still be able to access SlideShare content?
Yes, all presentations can and will still be found on SlideShare.
Now that Everand is the home for my ebooks, will I see both my documents and my ebooks in my saved items?
You will be able to see both documents and ebooks listed in your saved items. If you would like to access documents from your saved items from the Everand app, you can click on any document and will be directed to the Scribd App. If you would like to access ebooks and audiobooks from Scribd, you can click on any title and you will be directed to Everand.
Why can I no longer see or create reading lists with both documents and ebooks?
Our platforms now offer distinct content offerings, and the contents of lists reflect this evolution.
On Everand, you can find or create lists with ebooks, audiobooks, podcasts, magazines, articles, and/or sheet music. Your Everand app preserved any previously created lists with ebooks, audiobooks, podcasts, magazines, articles, and/or sheet music but removed any community-uploaded documents from those lists.
On the new Scribd app, you can find or create lists with community-uploaded documents. You can also find any previously created lists that only included community-uploaded document content.
How can I access my previously downloaded documents on the Everand app?
Previously downloaded documents will no longer be downloaded in the Everand app, however, you will still be able to view a preview of them in your saved items. If you would like to access documents from your saved items, you will need to download the Scribd app and navigate to Scribd. Please log into the new Scribd app with your existing login details. Once logged in, you must re-download your saved documents to your device to read offline, as this will be a new app. If you previously downloaded ebooks, audiobooks, podcasts, magazines, articles, and sheet music, you can still find them in your Everand saved items, but will need to re-download them to your device to read offline.
Will my past history, like reading progress for saved documents and ebooks, be preserved?
Your reading history will be preserved. Please visit Everand for ebooks and audiobooks history and Scribd for documents history.
Where can I find the documents I uploaded?
Please visit your documents upload page on Scribd.com to view your uploaded documents.
