New Features

Insights for all! Insights is our new take on analytics. If you’ve used Arcade Analytics in the past, you’re going to love Insights. Insights redefine some key metrics we use to measure the success of your Arcades. You can read more about it here.



  • We updated our billing pages to allow users to change the billing name (as well as other information) so that invoices are rendered with the appropriate information.
  • We now show visible feedback after granting user access to a team.

Bug Fixes

  • We fixed a bug that prevented some Teams customers from duplicating each other’s Arcades.
  • We fixed a bug that prevented some Team Arcades from being branded.
  • We fixed a bug where videos uploaded through the editor can’t be previewed in the library.
  • We fixed a bug that prevented users from tagging Arcades that were rendered below the fold on the index page.

Friday, February 24th

New Features

  • Custom Branding for your Arcades!


  • We added a better hint for triggering the fullscreen functionality. Previously, the Arcade viewer can be expanded into a fullscreen view by clicking on the green circle icon on the upper-left side of the Arcade, but our users found that hard to discover. So, we made it more visible by adding an icon to the upper right side of Arcade’s browser bar.
  • We made an improvement to our image optimization, where we now ship images to your browser as AVIF or WebP, depending on what your browser can support. This leads to faster load times.
  • We’ve made a bunch of small UI improvements in our loading states. Now you’ll see nicer-looking loading indicators throughout the app.

Bug Fixes

  • We’ve fixed several issues that prevented some users from uploading Arcades after a recording.

Friday, February 10th

New Features

  • Chapters! We've upgraded the Start Overlay, and CTA features with a new feature called Chapters. Chapters allow you to break up your Arcade into sections. You can add a title, description, and button to each chapter. Check it out...
  • You no longer have to wait for your GIFs and videos to generate. We'll now email you after we've generated them.
  • Now you can upgrade to a Teams plan in-app during or after your trial expires.


  • We've added the title attribute to our embed code to help improve accessibility on your site.
  • We now capture tax IDs on our checkout page.
  • Smaller JavaScript bundle sizes for our viewer = faster page loads.

Bug Fixes

  • We made numerous UI improvements and bug fixes.
  • We fixed an issue where the hotspot circle was misaligned with the mouse when being dragged.
  • We fixed a handful of issues that prevented some users from capturing screenshots with the Chrome Extension.
  • We made improvements to how the Chrome Extension handles uploading assets after a recording is complete.
  • We fixed an issue where Arcade's editor was broken on computers behind certain VPNs or proxies. Some of these VPNs or proxies blocked Web Channel / Web Socket connections, which Arcade uses to communicate with the server. We've added a fallback to HTTP long polling to fix this issue.

Friday, January 27th

In this cycle, we mostly focused on 4Ps (papercuts, polish, performance, productivity):

  • Fixed a bug where the hotspot inspector was allowing changes to get lost when selecting a new step in the editor’s sidebar.
  • Fixed a bug where Hotspots were cloned with their original ID causing issues in Analytics.
  • Added more accurate progress tracking to video and image uploads.
  • Free users trialing Teams can now upgrade on their own.
  • We made several improvements to our Chrome Extension to help with the reliability of uploads v0.16.0.
  • We added a setting to turn off video captures during a “Record Demo” session. This is useful if you want an Arcade composed of images v0.16.1.
  • We added a permission check on our Chrome Extension for those who want to tighten up their security and privacy with our Chrome Extension v0.16.2.
  • We fixed an issue where some team members in a Team would still show up as Free users.
  • We fixed an issue on Windows where ⌘K doesn’t exist. Instead, we’ve mapped the search function to Ctrl-K on Windows.

Friday, January 13th

Happy New Year!!! We’ve spent the last few weeks focusing on fixing 🐞🐛🐜🐝, but also had a bit of time to release one big highly requested feature…

  • Video editing is here! You no longer need to have your users watch you slow-type a form in an Arcade — you can speed it up instead… up to 3x. You can also trim your videos to make the transitions just right 👌. You can do all of this inside the Arcade editor. You’ll now see a video timeline at the bottom of each video step.
  • image

    In addition to that, we’ve made some big improvements to video in general. Whenever you see a video tile in Arcade, hovering your mouse over the video will show you an instant replay.

  • Team admins can now upload a logo on the Teams homepage or settings.
  • In addition to these awesome features, we fixed a handful of little UI bugs in iOS and Safari.

Friday, December 23rd

Happy Holidays! This was a short cycle for us due to the holidays, but we have two very important features we released this week. We’re looking forward to building and sharing more Arcade goodies with you in 2023! 🎉🥂

  • Tagging and filtering: Got lots of Arcades and having a hard time keeping track of them? We hear you. This week we rolled out support for tagging and filtering. Now, you can organize your Arcades using our new tagging and filtering feature. This is only available for those of you on our Teams plan.
  • image
  • Improved video quality on Safari and iOS: We’ve made some big improvements to the video quality of our Arcades in the past few releases, and this week, we’re making sure those are seen on Safari and iOS as well. Video playback for Safari and iOS users will be a lot more stable moving forward.

Friday, December 16th

  • We now record videos at 2x the resolution regardless if your screen supports a high DPI or not.
  • We made improvements to how GIFs and videos are cached for export. Now when you make a change to your published Arcade that affects the GIF or video, the new GIF or video the old versions are invalidated, and new ones will be generated when requested.
  • We made a lot of enhancements to improve the stability of the demo uploads after a recording has ended.
  • We replaced the cmd+delete key for deleting multiple steps with the delete key for deleting a step on the editor.

Friday, October 28


  • Login with Microsoft! Now you can log in with your Microsoft acct. This includes any Microsoft accounts in any organizational directory (Any Azure AD directory - Multi-tenant) and personal Microsoft accounts (e.g. Skype, Xbox)
  • We launched our new navigation/progress bar UI component inside the Arcade viewer. This is only turned on by default for new Arcades you create. If you’d like to turn it on for older Arcades, there’s now a “Navigation” setting inside the Arcade settings. If you’re a Teams customer, you can turn this on by default on all the Arcades in your Teams acct by toggling on the “Navigation” setting inside the Teams appearance preferences page.


  • We’ve made UI improvements to bring consistency throughout the app, especially in the Arcade Editor.

  • We limited the size of GIFs to 25mb.
  • We added some Arcade card actions menu with icons.

Monday August 1st

This sprint was focused on a lot of polish and bug fixes after discovering a lot of unexpected papercuts while watching users make Arcades. Some users didn’t realize that there was some functionality inside Arcade, such as adding text to hotspots.

We did a “bug blitz” across the team and found a lot of things that we wanted to address.


  • New Chrome Extension! 🎉

  • Our Showcase is out! We’re super excited about showing how our customers get value from our product.

Bug fixes

  • We fixed it so that the hotspot popover appears in the wrong spot if the mouse cursor in the way.

November 19th

  • We've made two major investments in the extension: Dimensions and mobile responsiveness.
    • Dimensions: When you are capturing an Arcade, sometimes you want to swap out content and replace it with new content. When you do that with a different browser size, the dimensions look off. So we built in something for our extension that makes it seamless.
    • Mobile: Our customers care about responsiveness. We've made some investments in our Arcades so that now they look pretty on mobile.
    • image

  • We've also made improvements to the flow builder experience by making the "stage" (or the actual editable asset) bigger.
  • image
  • We now let you add a CTA! We need to make the colors much better, though....comment on what you would prefer to see instead.
