Language based is some way from being country-based.
Quote “The new home screen will begin a phased roll out to Zwifters on Windows and macOS who’ve selected German, Japanese, Spanish, or French as their UI language.” This suggests that the english version is stable enough to put the update through translation so it should be available to English speakers using Windows or macOS.
“should be available” and “is available” are obviously not the same in this case…
It would be nice if someone at Zwift would let us know what percentage of users in each available language though…
Looks like it is time to learn Japanese.
Zwift never uses its social media platforms or subscriber email list for anything other than advertising. It leaves commentary on practical game matters to third parties like GP Lama and Zwift Insider. That way it has plausible deniability on any related matter. Personally I’d love to know how many subscriber dollars go toward sponsoring pro riders and events.
Yes, I can choose the home screen, so it’s worth learning Japanese
I don’t know if everyone can do it, but the old home screen was available in English.
- Change language settings other than English and restart ZWIFT.
- Set the language setting to English on the pairing screen.
- Before exiting ZWIFT, reset the language setting to something other than English on the pairing screen.
Seems like Zwift is releasing the new home screen to everyone zoon. Just got the email:
"For most of us, home is where we end our journeys. In the next week, it’s where your Zwift adventure begins!
Navigating through Zwift is easier than ever. Once it’s active, take it for a test ride. Kick the tires, err, check the PSI, and let us know what you think. We hope it helps you have even more fun.
That’s the goal. Here at Zwift, we know that when you’re having fun, fitness, and form follow suit. "
I wonder if it’s still only going to be PC and Mac only though.
I think it’s still going to be mac and pc for now.
That’s the email I got when my PC profile got the new UI. I guess they trigger a send to each user when they get switched.
I’ve had the same email but no updated homescreen
edit : saying that, I had the email on Wednesday, haven’t been on since Tuesday so its possible I have it
edit 2 : just installed zwift on my works machine and still on the old homescreen
Another own goal by the Zwift marketing department
Just checked back and I too got the email on the same day I started seeing the new home screen.
Received mine around midday my time on 18 March, booted up the PC when I got home, and found I had the new home screen.
I do notice a couple of differences in the text in mine, compared to that posted by @Aoi_Niigaki :
First para, second sentence =>
Mine: For the new home screen, it’s where adventure begins!
Aoi: In the next week, it’s where your Zwift adventure begins!
I noticed in GPLama’s recent video and somewhere in ZI this week (I think), an allusion to a big push to get the new home screen to a lot more people very soon. Maybe they are sending out emails en masse to everyone who will get it unlocked in the coming week?
Still haven’t gotten the new UI. No updates available for my zwift. Is the slow roll out still in progress?
Haven’t gotten mine either
They have raised fund a collected over $500+ million in total if I remember correctly. Subscriber’s fees probably go to paying those investors back.
Who cares if they sponsor L39ion of LA, help the Williams brothers collect a 6 figure paycheck while promoting Zwift in SOCAL/LA valley, probably one of the most unnecessary spots in the world for an online training game when your weather is that nice year round. Personally them helping (throwing cash) at women’s cycling is great and the women actually race hard on Zwift unlike most of the pro guys that don’t care about it.
Oh no, subscription fees just go towards convincing the next investors to pay even more. (But yeah, happy to pay mine just for the race-name-here Femmes avec Zwift division.)
You don’t want it! My wife got it and its TERRIABLE, its a massive step backwards. I’m so happy with my older interface. I wonder if Zwift has any UX people?
Next week, maybe the new home screen will be expanded to German, Japanese, Spanish and French as well.Italian,Chinese and Korean haven’t been expanded yet, so maybe you can use these language settings to get an old home screen.
(If this doesn’t work, I’ll be a ghost again in my club.)
This UX is very low quality.But the worst thing is that the menu function is limited and forced.
The home screen development team that publishes this UX and asks for feedback seems to be a group of amateurs.It’s called feedback, but it’s just a bug check.I don’t think it’s been updated with months of feedback.
How are those missing functions like “ride with” going?
Any ETA on those or a roadmap showing the rough dates and times of those going through the various stages of development and rollout?
Critical missing features (where you lost a function previously available) should be urgent priority. An upgrade shouldn’t downgrade functionality.
