You may have noticed that things are a bit different if you signed into Forge today. The new Forge is underway and the Version 2.0 beta is now available to the existing Forge community! The team has been working hard on creating a smoother and easier experience and we’re excited for you to check it out and let us know what you think. Here are some key updates in V2:
- Fresh new design: The Forge website and client have been updated with a new look.
- Redesigned highlighting experience: Highlighting is simpler and faster.
- Higher quality videos: We’ve completely revamped our capture system which now allows even higher quality highlights than previously possible with Forge.
- Full screen videos: Highlights on Forge can be viewed in full screen.
- Reposts: Forge users can now re-share content from other Forge users to their own profile and followers.
Live streaming, screenshots, and statuses have been removed from Forge V2. We are redesigning how these features work and expect to release them in future updates. We’ll also be adding even more exciting features in the coming weeks, so stay tuned!
At this time, the Forge V2 beta is closed and will be invite-only as we continue to fine-tune the experience. As you’re trying out the beta, please send your feedback and any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org! In the meantime, be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
