State of the Word 2022

WordPress co-founder Matt Mullenweg will hold his annual State of the Word address on Thursday, Dec. 15, 2022. This is an annual update on the progress across the project and a look ahead to the following year.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the event pivoted from occurring during WordCamp US to a single event. Like State of the Word 2021, this year’s event will be live-streamed from Automattic’s offices in New York City.

We anticipate seeing Matt share demos of new features in WordPress 6.1, and a look ahead to WordPress’ 20th anniversary.

State of the Word 2022 watch parties

You can tune in live to watch the event at from 1 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. EST /18 – 19:30 UTC on the WordPress YouTube channel. If you’d like to join in with others watching, attend the Gobal Watch Party, a locale near you, or host your own.

Ask Matt

State of the Word 2022 will include a Q&A session. You can send your question ahead of time to or ask during the live stream chat on YouTube.
