Option 4: How about we create a floating menu (similar to google hangouts "+" menu in Android) that can be hidden when the user taps anywhere on the screen? This menu would allow watching an article, switching the language, or anything else and will be a tap away (or two taps if the menu is hidden).

Floating action buttons with options hidden inside reduce the discoverability of actions you can take drastically. if we see the google documentation, floating action buttons are a single primary action on the article. --Npangarkar (WMF) (talk) 18:50, 23 February 2016 (UTC)
Thanks! That makes sense. Could we somehow auto-click that button once and show the user that they can take certain actions? This would be a tutorial of some kind.Bmansurov (WMF) (talk) 18:40, 24 February 2016 (UTC)

I don't see where the option to use ULS is. Nemo 16:05, 19 March 2016 (UTC)

Hey Nemo, we moved on with the discussion, but I think you are referring to this, right? Do you find ULS integration to be more friendly than the proposed ones? Grazie!--Melamrawy (WMF) (talk) 16:56, 19 March 2016 (UTC)
No, I'm not talking of that report. Yes, ULS integration would be better than the proposed alternatives here. I'm interested in knowing why ULS was seemingly not considered among the options. Without knowing this, the process appears to be flawed and every subsequent step is not worth considering. Nemo 16:21, 24 March 2016 (UTC)
