We have exciting news to share today. We're bringing new updates to the Community soon. You can expect to see some big changes to the design and features of the platform that houses our community.

Along with big design changes, new features include:

Search Improvements


Searching on the platform will show results live as you type your query. See the titles and details about the post as you search, without having to visit new pages to find what you’re looking for.

Social improvements


User Mentions
Want to bring someone’s attention to the thread? Throw an @ before their username to notify them. An email will be sent to the user to alert them of the notification.

Displaying Likes
Hover over the amount of “likes” a thread has received to see who gave it. We love being able to see who’s being helpful, and adding a thumbs up to a good thread is a great way to highlight the great posts.

New Emojis
There is now a full range of emoticons now to add fun emphasis to your threads. In addition to other BBCode features like adding colors to your text, emoticons are a good way to add a little character to what you’re trying to say.

Profile Cards
Hover over the avatar of a user and you’ll see a profile card with some user details, showing the basics of their activity as a preview to loading their full profile.

____
We’re looking forward to hearing what you think of these changes when they go live in the near future. Feel free to comment in the Community Feedback board when the changes are available.

It might not be there when the community changes happen, but when Google Assistant is available, we'll be adding a Google Assistant section too.
All very nice, if, as I presume, the many years old spam problem is also addressed.

"he company revealed in an earnings letter to shareholders this week that it will roll out the long-awaited feature to Sonos One and Beam devices next week via a software update.
The rollout will begin in the US before expanding to "more markets to come over the next few months," Patrick Spence, Sonos' CEO, said in the letter. "

so should hit the US this week 🙂
Shiney!! 😎 (To use a Firefly quote.)
