Hey Zwifters, today we’ve released a small update for PC/Mac only, which includes some major and some minor changes, most of which could be considered “behind the scenes”.
The most noticeable change you may see is that we’ve updated our avatars to include a few different head types. These new heads will let you have slightly greater control over the look of your avatar, and will also give us the ability to animate faces in future updates (like yelling when crossing a finish line, or blinking, for example). We’ve also made some changes to our underlying network code (boring, but important!), and have improved our new user “first ride” experience to explain the basics of Zwift to new Zwifters better than before.
All of these changes will make their way to all the other platforms in the next week or two, along with our next major update. NOTE: some Android Zwifters may also receive the new changes now rather than later.
The Team at Zwift
