Flip Just Got Better—New Features and Fun Ways to Use Flip

We’re excited to share our simpler, faster web experience that’s filled with feature updates you've been asking for. Take a look!

Updated Web Experience – The Flip camera, your videos, and your groups and topics are now a click away, making it easier than ever to create and share in Flip.


Edit Captions – You can now watch videos and edit the captions side by side. Students can also safely edit captions with automatic moderation.


A Unified View for Leads and Students – With this feature, leads and students have the same simple view, each customized to their roles, and you’ll always know what the ‘student view’ looks like on Flip, so you can confidently answer their questions. 


Ability to Archive Groups – Get a clearer view of your most active groups with our new archive function. 


Custom Group Links – Customize your group link (which doubles as your join code) to make it more memorable and easy to share. 


Immersive Video Playback –  Playback is bigger and more engaging, with videos at the center of the experience along with topic prompts and descriptions—no more back and forth to see them. PLUS, you can now edit captions side-by-side; a feature you’ve been asking for.


Personalize Flip with Dark Mode – Flip users can now use dark mode for their screens, which will reduce blue-light exposure and can help eliminate eye strain. 


Search Across Your Groups, Topics, and Videos – Want to find that topic your students loved last year? You'll be able to search across all your groups and topics. (Coming in January 2023.)

More Ways to Express Yourself with the Flip Camera

The all-new Flip camera brings your effects and tools to the forefront. Camera effects are easier to find and toggle between, and the simpler, more modern design makes telling your story and expressing your ideas a seamless experience. 


Create Mode – You don't always have to be on camera to share your ideas! Create Mode allows you to tell a story through visuals by using photos, text, and stickers. You can also use Create Mode to combine video with title cards or transitions. 


Video Backdrops – Last year, we introduced the ability to add video backdrops to your videos. Now, you have a whole new library of fun videos to choose from, right in the camera. 


ASL Learning Lens – This lens teaches the basics of American Sign Language (ASL), tracking your hand movements as you learn each letter of the alphabet. It's the first in a series of Learning Lenses we're building to help you and your students learn new things with the help of the Flip camera.


Audio Visualizations – Audio Mode on mobile now has the option to add audio visualizations, with cool soundwave visuals that track your voice as you record. 


Lenses on Web – You've told us how much you love lenses on mobile, and we love seeing the creativity they inspire. You can now use lenses on Flip web in addition to the Flip mobile app!

Exciting News and Updates from FlipFest 2022

Our annual FlipFest event happened in the Big Easy, New Orleans, in June of 2022. During the event, we shared inspiring stories of how people are using Flip in and out of the classroom, game-changing updates inspired by you, our amazing community, and announcements about what's to come. 

New Name. Same Us.

Flipgrid is now Flip! We have a new name, a new look, and even a new mascot, Smubble, but we’re still the same product you know and love. Why the change? Over the past decade, you took the technology we built and made it something more than we ever imagined. Your innovation and creativity inspired us to make our video discussion tool better than ever. Flip is for the classroom, your home, and wherever you want to take it because learning happens everywhere.


Most importantly, Flip is the same safe, inclusive, accessible, free app.

Flip is safe, and we’re working hard every day to stay that way.

General Manager
