We know that #StudentVoice is magic, so we conjured up the all new Flipgrid to help you on your quest to empower and amplify! It's chock-full of enchanting updates, so let's jump right in!

 

Unlock creativity 🎨 with a new Flipgrid Camera + Player

The heart of Flipgrid is the camera. After all, that's what your students use to capture and share their ideas, reflections, projects, creations, environments, experiments, imaginations... their voice! So we gave it super powers.

✂️ Trimming! Accidentally sneeze at the end of an epic Flipgrid video? Don't start over from scratch. Trim it! And...

Add More! When you Trim the beginning or end of your video, you'll unlock additional recording time. 

📺 Capture it all! Flipgrid videos are now optimized for every device, with 16x9 (desktop), square, or 9x16 (full-screen mobile)! Better yet - if your device has two cameras, use them both by live-flipping between the front and back!

👀 MyView! Sometimes students record horizontally. Sometimes students record vertically. Sometimes students record horizontally and vertically all in one video. MyView magically moves the Flipgrid video player to match your students' creativity!

📸 Supercharged Selfies! Retake your selfie without losing your stickers and drawings (perfectly align your face with those aviators)!

 

Amplify 📣 and protect 💪 #StudentVoice with the Grid Launchpad!

Introducing the All-New Flipgrid

Editor's Note: As of June 18, 2018, all of Flipgrid (formally our premium "Flipgrid Classroom") is free! Check out the details over here!

Offering both educators and students a refreshed interface, slew of new features, and overall upgraded experience, the all-new Flipgrid is more powerful than ever and still innately simple. Learn how in the video below.

Unlimited Responses. Unlimited Topics. Unlimited Grids.

With Flipgrid 4.0 we've made our simple educator pricing even better. For $65 a year, teachers can now create as many grids and topics as they'd like, share with whoever they want, and collect an unlimited number of responses.

Take student conversation to the next level, literally.

We've heard it a lot: our users want to allow the members of their community to respond directly to each other’s responses. Now they can. Educators can enhance their active, social classroom by allowing students to build on other’s ideas or challenge a peer’s logic, provide direct feedback, or answer questions.

Say “cheese,” then say some more.

Flipgrid has been completely redesigned to make genuine discussion easier and more intuitive. Videos are higher quality, load faster, and can be viewed from any device.

More customization and more integration.

The refreshed admin dashboard lets you personalize grids with custom banners, toggle settings - including likes - on or off, and share or embed Flipgrid wherever you’d like.

Join the conversation, anywhere.

With a social-media-feel, the new Flipgrid Android and iOS apps are modeled on student’s familiarity with the apps they already use. They remain intuitive, discussion-focused, and free with an updated look and feel. Using your unique grid code, students can easily join the conversation from their mobile or tablet device.

Get on the grid.
