Jetpack 6.6 is now available for download. This release brings you two features that will make your website more attractive to readers and search engines alike (and a slew of the usual bug fixes and small enhancements).

Better Site Verification Tools

We’ve significantly improved the process of verifying a site with Google. It’s now simpler than ever to add your site to Google Search Console right from the Jetpack dashboard. That’s not all: once you’ve added your site, you’ll also receive tips and notifications from Google to boost your site’s visibility on search engines.

Beta-test our new Asset CDN

This release also includes a new beta feature that reduces the time it takes content to load for your visitors. Take it for a spin — just head to the full module list page on your test site, and activate the Asset CDN feature. Everything should work as usual, only faster 🙂

Our asset CDN is a site acceleration service. That means that we host static assets like JavaScript and CSS shipped with WordPress Core and Jetpack from our Content Delivery Network, thus alleviating the load on your server.

This feature is still in beta, and we’d love to hear your thoughts and feedback if you give it a try.

Update to 6.6 today

As always, the full changelog offers more details on this update. If you’re ready to bring the latest version of Jetpack to your site, install Jetpack or update your existing installation right now.

    Hi, I’ve just updated Jetpack and the social icons widget has gone nuts! Every icon is now huge enough that my 80-year-old almost-blind dad can see them from across the room. I’ve had to remove the widget. What gives?!

    I see as first thing that the social icons have no more the correct case tags or class. The second thing, on buddypress, the images are no more loaded. These are the main problems I experience now.

    Hello I am getting this error when updating to jetpack 6.6
    Error updating Jetpack by on HSSSZN 讚新聞. The update cannot be installed because we will be unable to copy some files. This is usually due to inconsistent file permissions.


    • Jeremy Herve says:

      This can indeed happen if file permissions are not correctly set on your site, or if you have run out of free space on your hosting plan. I would suggest that you check this post to find how to solve this issue. You can also contact your hosting provider to get some help with this.

    How do I access “Beta-test our new Asset CDN”?


    • Jeremy Herve says:

      You can follow the instructions in the post above to find and activate the feature. Let us know if you are having trouble with a specific step.
