Offering more access, flexibility, and freedom is the theme for this month’s round-up. With FigJam for iPad and key localization updates to unlock workflows for our customers around the world, we’re extending Figma’s capability to meet people where they are. Let’s check out what’s new.
When you’re starting to work on a new idea, it’s easy to get distracted—especially when you get pings and notifications, or have another tab (or two, or four) open on your browser. Now, FigJam is available for iPad, so you can easily tune out all distractions and get in the zone.
You don’t need to feel hemmed in when inspiration strikes—you can sketch, ideate, or annotate from anywhere, and pick up where you left off at your desktop.
FigJam for iPad is now available in Figma on the App Store. Learn more in the Help Center.
Designing for a global audience just got easier now that Figma and FigJam support right-to-left text like Arabic, Hebrew, and Urdu.
We know that designers need to use superscript and subscript characters but can’t when they’re not supported by the font. Now, Figma swaps in a synthetic or “faux” glyph that’s automatically repositioned and resized to match your font style.
In a hybrid working world, it can be hard to keep teammates in the loop. With the latest Slack app, you can make sure your team know what’s happening in your shared Figma files, teams, and projects.
Here’s how we’ve seen teams use our Slack integration.

Here are some of our favorites this month to help you extend your Figma workflows:
Vimeo Record allows you to record your screen, webcam, or both directly from the files you’re collaborating on in Figma and FigJam.
Loom Embed lets you embed public Loom videos in your Figma files, adding rich video context to your designs.
Simple Vote enables anonymous voting, shows who voted, collects votes, and reveals the results when you're ready.

We’re rounding out this month with a bunch of general performance improvements to Figma and FigJam. Our goal with each of these updates is to make our product smoother and more usable.
For even more detailed improvements, make sure to check out the release notes. And if you have any other feature requests, we’d love to hear them! Feel free to share with us on Twitter or in the Figma Support Forum.
