Chess.com is happy to announce that we have fully launched our new homepage. With a new design and convenient shortcuts to the features you use and love the most, this update will make your chess experience even better!
Let’s take a tour of your new Home so you can start enjoying it right away!
Cleaner Design With All The Information You Need
The first thing you’ll notice is that your new Home looks better than ever. With a cleaner design that displays everything neatly, the new homepage doesn’t look crowded even though it shows more information than before.
One-Click Access To Your Favorite Features
Looking prettier isn’t enough. We know that a good home needs to be comfortable. That’s why we’ve made your Home cozier by having all the things you love the most about chess just one click away from you.
From your new homepage, you can now create a new challenge just like the last game you played with the click of a button. You can also create a different type of game, play against the computer, or challenge a friend to play. You can check your League information with just a glance, too!
Rush To Your Puzzles
If you like puzzles, then you’ll love the view of your new Home. You can pick up where you left off on your rated puzzle training with a single click. You can also see your current puzzle rating and solving streak to keep you motivated to work on your tactics!
Go To Your Next Lesson
No matter how much you already know about chess, you can always learn more. That’s one of the things that makes chess so interesting! You can now access your lessons right from your homepage, so you don’t have to look for them every time you log in.
Review Your Games
It’s no secret that analyzing your games is the best way to improve. We’ve made it easier for you to analyze the last game you played using Game Review right from your homepage. Just click the Game Review tile and get ready to learn from your games—or maybe just to praise yourself for your latest brilliant move!
New Top Widgets To Keep You In The Loop
Your new Home is not only about ease of access to your favorite features but also to important information. On the top left of the screen, you’ll see your profile picture, country flag, flair, and verified status. Clicking your profile picture or username will take you directly to your profile.
On the top right side of the screen, you’ll see other important widgets: friends, messages, play, and settings. Hovering over them will open a menu for each, while clicking on their icons will take you to their pages.
If any of your friends are online, the friends’ icon will turn green. You’ll also see a red bubble next to the message or play icons if you get a new message or if one of your opponents makes a move in a daily game.
