As we sat down to reimagine the onboarding experience in the Pieces Desktop App, we followed one north star: We want you to have an auto-magical experience the first time you open the app. ✨
To facilitate this, our new onboarding process is designed to give you control over your Pieces experience immediately. You can choose your default layout, select your favorite search mode, and let us know what your favorite languages are so that we can personalize Pieces for Developers to you.
If you’re already a user, you can launch the new onboarding experience from the app’s settings. If you’re new, welcome! We can’t wait for you to experience some Pieces magic. 🪄
As you first set up the Pieces for Developers desktop app, you can customize your experience in a number of ways.

As always, this release includes a number of performance enhancements and fixes for pesky bugs. We hope that Pieces runs just a little more smoothly for you!
