Support for 23andMe’s new website

23andMe have announced that they’re going to launch the new version of their website, which has been in beta for a while, on the evening of Monday 8th April.

Many of you have noticed that the extension doesn’t currently work with the new site and will be pleased to hear that I’ll be pushing a new release to the Chrome webstore on Monday evening. I know it’s frustrating for those of you who have been using the new site for some time, but I can’t make the new release available any sooner since it doesn’t work with the old site which many people are still using.

There are no major changes in this new version, but plenty of bug fixes and optimisations behind-the-scenes. As usual I’ve made various cosmetic changes to the site to make things more readable (so grey text on a white background is mostly banished!). I also added an extra ‘logout’ button to the toolbar at the top of the page as 23andMe have hidden it inside a menu for some reason.

As always, you’ll get the update automatically if you already have the extension installed so you don’t need to do anything. If you don’t currently have the extension installed, the new version will be available to install from the download page from approximately 2200 BST on Monday.

My thanks go to 23andMe for tipping me off about the upcoming changes back in November and giving me access to the beta so I could update the extension ahead of the new site going live.

    Thank you so much for updating this to work with the new site. I’ve been using the beta of the new site for a few weeks now, and I’ve been sorely missing the features 23++ provides.

    There are some problems; “Invitation sent 15 hours ago”…or similar. This has a very odd concept of what 15 hours is. Such invites were sent 10 days, 20 days, 2 months ago… and every time frame is off.

    I do like the amounts shared, they are quite helpful; I don’t need a calculator handy!

    Colored backgrounds, excellent.

    Hope you can repair the rest.

      Thanks for reporting this, I can see what the issue is and will fix it, but it may take a while to get around to it. You can temporarily fix it by uninstalling and re-installing the extension.
