Spread your shadows

Adjust the positive or negative spread of your shadows to create depth, glows, and borders. All seamlessly output to code.

Embed any Figma file in your team’s favorite tools

Embedded design files streamline project communication, simplify handoff, and eliminate the overhead that comes with finding and maintaining the latest designs.

Seamlessly test websites and web apps

To avoid user confusion when testing websites and web apps, you can now turn off the Figma toolbar and footer in Presentation View without going full screen. A URL parameter keeps the toolbar and footer hidden in embeds too.

Bridge design and development with the new Zeplin integration

With the new Zeplin plugin, you can now export Figma frames, components, and styles to Zeplin for a more seamless developer hand-off.

Less time searching, more time making

Universal Search makes it easier for designers and their collaborators to find what they’re looking for in Figma. You can now search your workspace for projects, teams, files, and people.

Design and prototype seamlessly with Figma and Framer

If you love both Figma and Framer, your workflow just got more seamless. The new Framer integration enables design teams to import Figma files into Framer Web for more advanced prototyping.

New tricks for Selection Colors

Use the target icon to select a color’s objects and make adjustments to just those objects. Hit the Styles icon to create a new Style with a selected color, or apply an existing Style.

Better design systems backed by data

Figma is taking the guesswork out of design systems with analytics to help you understand library usage, learn what’s working and what’s not, and measure the impact of design.
