We understand the new Home Screen is a highly anticipated feature that many are asking about. Today, we wanted to share where we’re at with the rollout and what to expect in the days to come.
Currently, a limited number of Windows users have begun to receive the new Home Screen. This rollout will be slow and controlled, so we ask for your patience while we ensure stability. When the Home Screen is deemed a stable experience, we will ramp up to include more Windows users.
Additionally, we’re pleased to say that Zwift employees have begun testing the Mac version of the Home Screen, which will be the next platform to roll out. After Mac, iOS/ATV and Android will follow. Timelines will be dependent on the success of previous platform rollouts.
In the meantime, here’s what you’ll see after first logging into the new Home Screen.
While it looks a little different, your favorite content is still accessible, and in some cases, even more accessible. The design is streamlined and refined, with better discovery tools to help you find in-game content and events that best suit your interests. The UX is more intuitive, with the intention to get you into your desired activity quickly. You’ll notice some of the screens remain the same—these sections are currently on the development roadmap for redesign as well.
Below you’ll find some Quick Start content to give you an inside look of how to use the new Home Screen, with a special focus on common tasks—choosing a world and route, starting a free ride, joining an event or a Pace Partner, or accessing your Garage and achievements. We’re providing this to create a smoother process for when it becomes accessible for you, so you’ll be ready to jump in and get Zwifting in no time flat.
Thanks again for your patience and for allowing us to provide transparency on the process.
Choosing a World/Route for Free Ride
Select the globe icon from the top-left nav bar or select the “Routes” card on the main screen.
This new design includes additional data to help you find the best route.
Each route is rated by difficulty using a 1-to-5 scale (with 5 being most difficult), with prior completions are noted for badge hunters.
Join an Event
Already signed up for an event? It’ll be an included card in your “My Upcoming Events” section. If you’re not signed up yet, head over to the events screen to filter and find an event.
Start a Workout Using a Recommended Route
To start a workout using a route recommended by Zwift staff, start by selecting the Workout icon or card.
Pair a Specific Route to a Workout
Looking to pair a workout with a specific route? Maybe you want your workout on a climbing route to gain elevation, or hit a flat for a weekly distance goal.
Whatever your reason, start with the desired route first, then add in the workout from the in-game menu module.
Join a Pace Partner
One of our most popular features, Pace Partners, is front and center under the “Just Ride” section. Select the card and get Zwifting at your desired pace in seconds.
Access the Garage and Achievements
Looking to start riding with a new kit or frame? The Garage, as well as your Achievements, are now accessible via the Home Screen.
Click or tap on the upper-right icons to access each.
Note: Challenges (both selection and progress) are still located in the in-game menu.
