Fitbit rolls out new community features and more to Windows 10 PC and Mobile

The Fitbit app for Windows 10 PC and Mobile is getting a little more social with a new update heading out now. As announced by Fitbit product manager Tristan Rice on Twitter, version 2.20 of the Windows 10 app is rolling out today, bringing a new Community Feed, profile design, and much more.

The changes rolling out today were actually announced by Fitbit all the way back in January with a big focus on bringing Fitbit users together. A huge part of that is the new Community section of the app, which is split into sections that all make up a sort of Facebook-like experience for Fitbit users.

Inside the new Community tab, you'll find sections for your Feed, Friends and Groups. Feed is where the Facebook analogy comes in, offering a place for you to scan for and comment on fitness updates from your friends, and post your own. The Friends section, on the other hand, is just a new location for your friends list and step count leaderboard. Finally, Groups is a place where you can meet others based on shared interests. Here's how Fitbit described it:

Discover like-minded people through topic-specific communities. There are over 20 groups related to fitness, nutrition, wellness, and weight loss that you can join. Within these groups, users can ask questions or share inspiration and updates, like exercise summaries, badges, trophies, and photos that are relevant to the group.

Alongside all of the community-focused features, Fitbit is also rolling out a new, more customizable profile design. All of your personal stats, badges, and trophies can be on display here, and you can personalize each section to your liking.

The update to version 2.20 should begin rolling out today, but it may take some time to reach everyone.
