Fix

  

The last two weeks have been pretty insane on Doozy. We've had a ton of new users, and with all this new usage, a few cheeky gremlins surfaced. Don't worry though, team Doozy have been on the case!

  • Optimised room audio playback to improve reliability
  • iOS 15 introduced some issues with playback which we've had to battle with. Glad to say the battle has now been won!
  • The games tab didn't work on mobile. It does now!

2.1.0

This week was all about MAKING THINGS EVEN MORE FUN ๐ŸŽ‰

After some amazing feedback from teams of all shapes and sizes, a few things were bumped up the priority list:

 

New

 

 

  • ๐ŸงŠIce breaker questions are available within live rooms. If there's a new starter you'd like to get to know better, or the conversation's just gone a bit dry, then crack out the ice breakers and you'll have talking points for days. No more mister awkward guy!

  • ๐Ÿš€ Featured activities right on the landing screen in live rooms make it super easy to instantly start a game or a quiz. No need to engage your brain for this one!

  • ๐Ÿคธโ€โ™‚๏ธCollaborative quizzes so you can work on a quiz together. No longer will you be burdened with the sole responsibility of coming up with the perfect questions and exceptional gifs.

 

Improvement

 

 

  • ๐Ÿ Faster snakes and a smaller map to make this classic a hell of a lot more exciting.

 

Fix

 

 

  • It's been a bug bash bonanza this week, ironing out all the kinks and smoothing things out. We won't bore you with all of the fixes, but things are looking a whole lot sharper and a lot less broken!

2.0

That's right! DOOZY 2.0 BABY!!! There are so many new features, updates and improvements that it merits a big shiny version bump. Here's what's been keeping us busy for the last few weeks.

 

New

 

 

  • ๐Ÿ‘พ Retro Games are coming to Doozy! Challenge your friends to a multiplayer bout of the class Snake game for a nostalgia trip back to your Nokia 3310 days.
  • ๐Ÿ’ƒ Song Conga - because making a whole playlist in one go is just too much effort, why not get your whole crew to add one song at a time? Check out our create-your-own activity ideas for more!
  • ๐ŸŽจ Doodler - the drawing and guessing game for budding artists.
  • โœ๏ธ Drawing challenges - see who on your team can draw the best dinosaur, or maybe even the best unicorn! If you're competitive about showing off your MS Paint skills, this one's for you.
  • ๐Ÿ“น Reimagined live rooms - we completely overhauled Doozy rooms from the ground up to bring massive improvements to usability, accessibility, design, and performance. Now you can instantly kick off quizzes, drawing challenges and activities directly in a room, no setup required!

 

Improvement

 

 

  • Discover games, quizzes and activities 10x faster with our revamped interface featuring bold new categories and smashing new activities.
  • Team space - We redesigned the dashboard. Those circles just weren't doing it for us any more. Now everything's clearer, cleaner and faster.

 

Fix

 

 

  • The advent of the new live rooms has cleared a whole host of bugs off the table. We've basically renovated the entire thing for a much better mobile-first experience, all the way up to high-res desktop monitors.

1.4.0

But, soft! What light through yonder window breaks? It is the Doozy changelog, and Slack integration is the sun.

    ‐ Romeo, during a remote team-building social

 

New

 

 

  • The Doozy Slack app is here! Milo pulled it out of the bag and impressed us all with a polished version of the Slack app we previewed last week. It's delightful. If you want to try it out with your team just fire a message to milo@doozy.live and we'll get you set up right away.
  • Activity event series - some of our amazing partner events have way more content than can fit in a single session (for example Laura's weekly yoga sessions). We've added some new ways to better surface related events in a series so you'll never miss out.
  • COMING SOON: On-demand video - we're putting the finishing touches on a session replay feature so you'll be able to go back and re-watch that yoga class you missed out on because your cat tripped over the router, unplugged the internet and then puked on the carpet even though he's never done that before. Honestly he's never like this, it's so embarrassing! What's gotten into you, Catrick Swayze?

 

Improvement

 

 

  • Some massive UX improvements are coming to Rooms - we'll be pushing these changes out incrementally over the coming days ๐Ÿคฉ
  • We gave the homepage a bit of a spruce up with some updated content and more representative screenshots

 

Fix

 

 

  • Some helpful users pointed out that the UI wasn't making it clear enough that events in the past were, well, in the past. We fixed that, so thanks for letting us know! Keep the feedback coming.

1.3.0

It's been a hot minute since I last posted an update here, so here's what's been going on at Doozy HQ recently.

 

New

 

 

  • Create a temporary room - now it's even quicker to jump into a room whenever you want to catch up with your team. As well as the 3 permanent Live Rooms in your space, you can now spin up a new room at the press of a button.
  • COMING SOON: Doozy Slack App Beta - Speak to milo@doozy.live to get access! ๐Ÿคฉ We're reeeeeally excited about this - you can now connect your whole team to Doozy instantly, create rooms on the fly, and log in automatically. When I first saw this I yelled out "I love Doozy's integrated multi-platform functionality!"
  • Public Live Streams - Details of upcoming public live stream events are now proudly displayed on the Discover page even if you're logged out
  • Partner profile pages - This one's kinda a no-brainer, we just didn't have time to build it yet! We found time.

 

Improvement

 

 

  • Descriptions are now optional when you're creating events. As unbelievable as it sounds, not everyone enjoys typing as much as me.
  • Improved SEO with new sitemaps and all-round better page hierarchy, so we can get that #1 ranking on Alta Vista.

 

Fix

 

 

  • Even more mobile fixes, because phones are really small and fiddly (we've got some even more delightful UI updates in the pipeline)
