Open Beta 10.9

What to Expect from Open Beta

It’s good to remember that Beta Builds are a pre-release version of the final software and may be unstable, lack features and generally not function as expected. It’s important you’re aware of this before participating. Open Beta can be fun and hugely rewarding, but it can also be frustrating. If you want to join in the process-welcome aboard! If the Open Beta is not for you, that's okay, too. You can change your mind at any time and return to the version you’re used to.

Enhanced Discover

When logging into WOLF, you’ll notice that our Discover page has not just had a new lick of paint, but a total transformation.

The new Discover experience makes it easier for people to find great Groups to join, interesting events to subscribe to, and know more about what’s going on in WOLF.

Revamped Discover Experience

This section is subject to change and experimentation.

Currently, this section mirrors our original Discover experience, but there are few new sections:

  • Video section

  • Group Promotions

  • Events

  • Store Promotions

The content and sections that you will see on this part of Discover will likely change of the coming weeks.

Testing Grounds

A section that displays all the various elements at our disposal when crafting the new Discover experience. These various sections are to help in testing, so may not function as intended and change often.

Feedback

We’re extremely interested on your feedback on the new look of Discover, and encourage you all to join the various Beta Groups to share it with us.

We’ve made some changes to how you can post links in the app.

  • When you post a URL into the chat box, a preview of the link will be generated.

    • This applies to external URLs, Room URLs, image links, etc.

  • You can choose to dismiss the small preview that is created by tapping the “X” button on the preview, if you just wish to send the URL only.

  • If you post a URL that is on our URL blacklist, the link will be automatically greyed out.

Misc

  • Usual bug fixes and improvements (iOS + Android)
