What’s new in Figma: April 2022

This month, we’re focused on empowering teams to jam better together. Whether it’s a productive brainstorm or a well-run retro, these new features will help add more structure and personalization to your FigJam files, and bring your brightest ideas to life.

Structure and customize your jams

From workshops to weekly team get-togethers, we want teams to be able to make FigJam their own. Now, you have even more flexibility, building on top of the updated stamps, stickies, and font sizes we launched in February.

Now, you can:

Bring more joy to your jams

We’re making cursor chat more expressive, adding new sticker packs from popular artists, and bringing back one of your favorite April Fun Day features.

Washi tape, now a permanent FigJam feature

Washi tape is back, with dozens of newly designed tape options and the ability to upload your own patterns.

We're excited to bring four new sticker packs to FigJam, designed by members of the Figma Community. Shout out to Jiro Bevis, Diana Marmol, Rooney, and Fanny Luor for the incredible work!

Four stickers: 1) Says "stellar work" and has a sun with sunglasses; 2) says "slay" with four stars; 3) says "let's jam" with a creature playing drums; 4) has someone with sunglasses

More ways to express yourself with cursor chat

Cursor chat is getting more emotive. Now, when you type certain words, expressions, or use a bunch of exclamation points, your cursor will come alive for a few moments.

Four cursor chats: 1) Says "slick"; 2) says "Happy birthday" with an image of a present; 3) says "omg!!"; 4) says "Fireeee" with image of fire
