WordPress AMP (short for Accelerated Mobile Pages) makes an optimized mobile view of your WordPress blogs. It works out just like Facebook’s Instant Articles feature. Since most people are now using smartphones when it comes to browsing the internet, having this kind of feature in your WordPress blog is a basic necessity. This is a new feature from WordPress so expect that they are going to add more useful features after some time.
To those who don’t know yet, the AMP plugin optimizes your WordPress Page so it will only load the necessary content to mobile devices unlike in desktops. Since only the important ones are being loaded, you can expect that this makes your WordPress blogs load faster when it is viewed in mobile.
