Big news everyone! We have just released a beta version of a brand new Typing.com platform to give you a sneak peek at the new features coming out this summer.
This beta version will allow users like you to give us feedback on the new features and let us know what you think before we make official changes across the board in July.

Below you’ll find quick descriptions of some of the biggest new updates:
Avatars that Level Up + Corresponding Skins
One of our users’ favorite features has been the ability to personalize your typing lessons by choosing a skin. Now, these skins just got a major upgrade.
When you pick a skin, this not only changes the look of the site, it also gives you an awesome new avatar to represent you.
The more letters you type the more experience points your avatar gains. Type enough and you’ll level up your avatar to something even cooler!
Choose Your Own Adventure
Stories are fun, but they’re even more fun when you’re part of them!
To add even more fun to the lessons, we’ve created some Choose Your Own Adventure lessons that not only enable you to type your way through suspenseful stories, but you even get to decide what the character does!
Learning to type is about to get MUCH more exciting.
New Achievements to Unlock
Just like in a game, as you type you will be able to unlock achievements for typing speed, accuracy, characters typed and more!
The more you type the more achievements you will unlock!
New Lesson Screens
You’ll now find three different screens for lessons designed to reinforce repetition and to visually remind you of where keys are located on the keyboard when learning new keys.
This will make it even easier and faster to start typing quickly and accurately.
