Kiwi6 Updates

Updates to Kiwi6: January 2014

By admin on February 01, 2014 18:22

New Statistics

Statistics, previously a premium-only feature, is now available to all users. It's also been redesigned to be more readable. Users can now also see their statistics in an account-wide summary. We have more detailed reporting available for paying users scheduled for this February.

New File Manager

The file manager has been refreshed, providing an easier way to edit files and folders. This update also introduces drag-and-drop moving and a way to quickly get links for all selected items.

Kiwi6 in more languages

Kiwi6 has also been updated to support languages other than English. This process is ongoing and we'll be adding missing translations as well as new languages over time.

Other Changes

We've also made hundreds of small changes to improve performance, fix reported bugs, support mobile devices, and improve the UI and navigation elements. Enjoy!

Introducing Albums for Artists

We're excited to announce album support for all artists, available immediately.

Here is an example album, Breadcrumbs, by creative commons artist Josh Woodward.

To get started, click the Create Album link on your artist page.


Updated playlist and artist browsing

Playlists and artist browse pages now feature new sort options to help users discover the best content on the site.

The scoring algorithm will continue to be tweaked until there is a good balance between surfacing quality content and promoting new tracks.

New features to aid in navigation and discovery will continue to be rolled out this month.

New: Login with Google Account (and email support updates)

Today we're introducing account integration with Google's federated login system. If your existing Kiwi6 account uses a Gmail address, you'll begin being able to use Google's one-click system to login immediately. Just look for the button that looks like this:

Sign in with Google

We also sped up some of our backend systems to improve website performance. On average, this has improved response times from the website by about 25% on average.

Emails Delayed

A misconfiguration caused some incoming emails to be severely delayed for the past 3 weeks. We are now processing support emails in the order that they were received, but response times will be longer than usual until the backlog has been cleared.

An Improved Playback Experience

By admin on February 21, 2013 16:14

We recently rolled out a new playback experience on Kiwi6, one which puts the media player at the bottom of the screen. In addition to reducing clutter on pages with multiple playable songs, this makes the behavior more consistent across the site and lays the groundwork for more features. As a bonus, we've added back the volume slider that went missing when we rolled out the new Kiwi6 in August of last year.

We also added back the old Embed code for users who prefer that version.
