All aboard the hype train. 🚂
Cool beans — how do I get it?
- Update the desktop app, and you’ll gain access to all these new features 💯
🎬 Library Enhancements
You can now filter, sort, and group to your little heart’s desire. We created a cohesive clips library across desktop + mobile.
- Grouping: Group your library by game or timeline
- Search + Filtering: Filter by the things you care about, such as privacy status, upload status
- Sorting: Sort your clips by most viewed, newest, and more.
- Free Up Space: Because who doesn’t like freeing up your precious disk space — which can be used to install more games — and then you can take more clips. It’s a win-win for all of us.
🎮 Add Your Favorite Games!
We totally get it. A game launches, you want to clip it, but *gasp* Medal doesn’t support it yet.
Have no fear! You can now request all of your favorite games through the desktop app. Check it out:
• Just go to Settings ➡️ Games ➡️ Add New Game, and voilà!
• Any clips taken will be uploaded as unlisted until game is approved. Once approved by the Medal Team, you can change it to public!
📤 Auto Upload Changes
We’ve changed the way your clips auto-upload. Now, clips will upload once your game closes. Getting auto uploads just right for everyone was hard, but we think you’ll like this change. If you don’t, you can always change it back to the way you had it before.
• Auto uploads have a new option: Prompt me when my game closes
• When your game closes, a system notification will appear that you can click on to manage and publish the clips you just took
• If you don’t click the notification, a prompt will be waiting for you when you return to the app.
