March 9, 2023 release notes: LinkedIn, testimonial embed, Product Hub designs

LinkedIn integration

LinkedIn has been added as an additional login method for both web and the mobile apps.

One of the many ways we’re combating inauthentic contributions is by helping legitimate users look more legitimate. By linking your accounts and adding your job title and company to your profile, this information will be displayed under reviews you leave, making them more credible and valuable to makers and the community.

Testimonial embed

Hey makers! 👋 Already have great reviews on your Product Hubs that you’d like to share? There’s a new embed. You can pick and choose your favorite reviews and generate your own custom testimonial wall to share on your website. Get the code by going to your Product Hub > clicking “More” > clicking “Embed.”

Product Hub designs

Those of you with a keen eye may have noticed a few recent design changes to Product Hubs. Expect more changes in the coming weeks that will make it easier for visitors to find the qualitative information they’re looking for and help makers acquire more users.

To summarize the changes so far:

  1. “Visit website” button is shown first
  2. Popular reviews are more prominent and replaced the “new launches” section
  3. Alternative products replaced trending/related products in the sidebar


PSA - Product Hunt API 1.0 will be decommissioned on March 31, 2023. If you have applications built on 1.0, check out the documentation for 2.0, and switch over as soon as possible to avoid a disconnect.

February 23, 2023 release notes: Chrome extension, newsletters, Q&A, review embed

Chrome extension

This week we launched our new Chrome extension on Product Hunt and got some awesome feedback from the community about what people love and a few things that we can make even better.

If you missed it, here are some highlights. The extension gives you a way to quickly discover bite-sized trends, top launches of the day, and past launches by filtering by your favorite topics. Now there are discussions and maker stories you can browse as well!

The update includes a few ways to personalize your tab including:

  • Toggle between list view and grid view
  • Light mode and dark mode
  • Display your most visited sites
  • Connected to your Product Hunt account to show your current streak

Productivity and AI newsletters

Backed by popular demand, we introduced two additional weekly newsletters to get you the latest and greatest of Productivity and AI in your inbox each week. Anyone can subscribe (no PH account required). If you like it, recommend it to your friends!

What you can expect:

Productivity Newsletter

  • Get better at using common apps and tools
  • Top productivity tools and how to use them
  • Tips from the most productive people you know
  • Weekly on Fridays

AI Newsletter

  • Discover AI tools for work and personal life
  • Learn how AI is solving problems and effecting industries
  • Get answers to your curious questions
  • Weekly on Tuesdays

Product questions and answers

Answer new product-related questions to unlock the answers from other users. If you don’t want to play (PTSD to PE class anyone?), that’s fine. You can stand on the sideline and wait ‘til answers are released the following week. It’s a great way to build your stack, check your friends' answers, and research tools you may have missed - all curated by the PH community.

Profile updates

Let the Product Hunt community get to know you a little better by adding your job title and company to your profile. This information will show under your reviews, making them more credible, and helping others make better buying decisions.

Review embed

Makers - all your hard work deserves some credit. We added a new embed you can unlock once you get 5 or more reviews on your Product Hub! Once it’s unlocked, it’s a great stamp of approval from the PH community to add to your website.

Community Hours

These are 15 minute long 1:1 virtual sessions designed to help answer any questions you may have about Product Hunt as you prepare to launch.

Here are just a few of the benefits you'll get when you sign up for Community Hours:

  • Personalized feedback from our community team
  • 1:1 support to answer any questions
  • Guidance on how to improve your launch
  • A supportive community member ready to cheer you on

Product Hunt Maker Groups

We’re trying something new to help you build community on Product Hunt. We have a blank canvas and want to know what you’re looking for. Whether you’re looking for launch support, beta-testers, design feedback, your new co-founder, or other people with similar interests in your region to plan fun events with, the opportunity for Maker Groups is endless. Fill out this form to express interest or suggest your idea for a small community-focused group.

Reminder: If you solve problems with technology… you’re a maker!

Collect the products you use and share them publicly with others through your profile. By clicking “I use this” on a product, it will add that product to your stack.

Review filters

Finding new products on Product Hunt is always exciting - but sometimes you have to go through a lot of work before figuring out if it’s what you’re looking for or not. We’re working on getting better reviews so that your future decisions are made with ease. Adding filters is one small improvement we’ve shipped so you can use tags and stars to find the most helpful reviews.

January 26, 2023 release notes: my products, self-service ads, comment prompts

Manage your products & launches

My products now lets you easily see all your products and launches (draft, scheduled, and posted) in one place for simple management. If you missed the memo about why you should care about your product after launch day, read more here.

Self service ads

Product Hubs have a new promote tab that houses tools for makers to continue finding new customers on Product Hunt after launch day. Hub members can access self service ads from this page to run campaigns that expand their reach to a thousands of tech users and buyers daily. Follow these steps to use self service ads or learn more about advertising on Product Hunt.

Comment prompts

Me: “I love this product and want to contribute some helpful feedback.”

Also me: “Congrats on the launch!”

Makers can now add a prompt on their launch post to help kickstart the conversation and specify the types of feedback they are looking for. Here’s a great example of how this new tool can be used.

Congrats to all the Golden Kitty Award winners, finalists, and nominees! Don’t miss the Hall of Fame. Pro tip - it’s really fun to watch the winners revealed in the mobile app! Download if you're wondering what 'Jazzy French' sounds like…🎷🥐

January 12, 2023 release notes: comment awards, Rewind, and Golden Kitty Awards

Comment awards

One of the reasons we love our community so much is that genuine feedback is not hard to come by. Now, you can get recognized by makers for your helpful suggestions, finds, and witty comments.

Makers - we encourage you to hand out these awards (3 per launch) and share the love with your supporters. Do so by reviewing your launch post comments and clicking “award” on the ones you’d like to highlight.

The Golden Kitty Awards

If you’re new here, you may not have heard about our favorite event every year, which is basically like the Oscars of Tech. The Golden Kitty Awards are voted on by the community to celebrate the best products and makers each year.

How it works: You nominate products in each of the categories from now through Friday, January 13, at 11:59pm PT. Then on Monday, January 16, you’ll start voting for finalists in each category.

In total, there are 24 categories, which you can nominate and vote for who you’d like to take home a reimagined, sleek kitty trophy.

Keep in mind: Products you nominate need to have launched in 2022.

Product Hunt Rewind

2022 will go down in history as the year everyone did their own version of Spotify Wrapped - so in the highest form of flattery, we did it as well. The fun backstory is that Product Hunt Rewind was an idea born from our internal Hackathon where the small team of engineers, designers, and marketers built this experience in nearly 1 week and took home their own Golden Kitty.

Get your Rewind to see and share your stats from 2022! If you already have the Product Hunt mobile app installed, make sure you’re on the latest version to see your Rewind. And thanks for all the love from those that already shared!

December 15, 2022 release notes: streaks widget & EOY recap

Streaks widget

To all our competitive friends - we get it, we love streaks too. Our mobile team did us all a favor and designed a mobile home screen streak widget. See your current streak and always stay vigilant and on top of your streak game. Get the mobile app if you’re still missing out.

EOY recap

This year’s been a blast - thanks for being a part of it! A quick lookback on some highlights:

We have a little teaser of our own…

Two weeks ago most of our team got together IRL in Austin, Texas for a Hackathon. We had a ton of fun (any other board game and karaoke enthusiasts out there?) but also built a ton of new/helpful/fun/quirky stuff we’re unleashing on Product Hunt in the new year. See you in Jan!

What were your favorite changes this year and what do you hope to see in the new year? We’d love to hear from you!

December 8, 2022 release notes: best products, streak leaderboard, and Ship update

Celebrating the longest streaks on PH

It’s been more than a year since we first introduced streaks to help our community track their daily engagement with Product Hunt. In that time, it’s quickly become one of our most talked about new features on Twitter and beyond.

We are introducing a streak “leaderboard” to make it easier to celebrate our most active community members with the longest streaks.

To start your streak, make sure you are logged in while visiting Product Hunt. Your streak count will increase with every day that you access Product Hunt via desktop or mobile web or app.

To access the leaderboard, click the link below your streak on the Homepage’s sidebar to “view streak ranking”. You can also find the option “Visit streaks” on the main navigation under the “Community” section.

Special kudos to @ankit, @jun, @dirk, @jeff, @deepu, @kevin_t for the impressive 401 days streak without a single miss since we introduced the feature.

Best Products 🏆

The new feed that shows best products by category, ranked by reviews and followers, is another great way to discover highly-valued products and another way for makers to win! Use the topic filters to explore PH community favorites.

Mobile apps: Discover page

If you’ve updated your app this week, you’ll see a brand new Discover page that now includes sections for curated collections and recommended people to follow. Don’t miss the latest gift guides turned into collections.

Ship update

Some of you may have noticed that Ship has been removed from our main navigation menu. This change was made because we are no longer accepting new sign-ups. Existing Ship users will be able to continue using Ship features and renewing their subscriptions until further notice.

Read more about this change in our FAQs or as always, feel free to contact our support team!

November 23, 2022 release notes: activity feed, mobile updates, and featured makers

Activity feed

Now your profile displays a complete activity feed showing your latest comments, reviews, and discussions in chronological order. You can also view other people’s activity feeds, so you can see what your favorite PH’ers have been up to.

Mobile updates

5.3.0 for iOS and Android released late last week! The app updates included a way to view and edit collections, an updated change log in your settings, and my personal favorite… a fun animation to celebrate your latest streak! Fun fact: the best all-time streak is 385 days, and it's a three way tie between @jun_gong, @pradeeb28 and @ankitsharmaofficial!

Featured makers

Last, but not least - you may have noticed some new friendly-faces in your home feed.

👋 @csaba_kissi, @andrianv and @marclou

There’s no shortage of awesome people in this community, and we want to make sure you’re getting connected with some of the best! If you’ve been feeling like there’s just something missing from this community, a good next step is getting connected with a few more people.

We'd love your feedback

We're running a community survey for the next week, and would love to hear from you. Complete the survey and leave your email address for a chance to win a $50 Amazon gift card. Your honest feedback is greatly appreciated!

November 10, 2022 release notes: coming soon feed

Coming Soon feed

Something we’ve been obsessing over is how to make Product Hunt more valuable to both makers and non-makers. The new Coming Soon feed aims to do just that.

Makers - We know how much effort and preparation goes into a launch. An important part of that is teasing it just enough to build anticipation and hype for launch day.

This new feed allows you to highlight your scheduled launch as much as 30 days in advance. This gives you more time to gain momentum — on the feed and with a slick Coming Soon banner on your Hub page. Learn more.

For everyone else - Don’t you love knowing what product launches are coming soon? Help support the launches that pique your interest, and sign up to receive notifications when they go live so that you’re one of the first to know.

As always, let us know how we can make this one better by dropping your comments below.
