The new WordPress editor (currently in beta as we write this) will be the new standard editing experience in WordPress.

The Gutenberg editor is now the only supported form of editor in WordPress. Whilst some older versions might have the classic editor still installed, any new themes will use Gutenberg.


To conclude...

In conclusion, the new Gutenberg editor will be default for all new WordPress sites and uses a ‘drag and drop’ function, rather than the classic editor.
