Now that February’s Points Wagering update is out in the wild, we’re excited to announce April’s brand new feature! Add an amazing new dynamic to your Crowdpurr trivia games and questions… by adding GIFs and images to answer options! 🥳

Not only that, we’ve also updated the question import/export tool to include everything that is a part of your set of trivia questions including question media, question notes, points wagering, answer images, and of course all questions and answer options. Let’s check it out!

New Feature: Add Answer Images & GIFs 🖼️

Back in July 2020, we added the ability to add GIFs, stock photos, and uploaded images to your questions. Now, you can add these to your answer options too!

Just click on the camera icon on any of your answer options in a poll or trivia game to select GIFs, stickers, and animated emojis from Giphy, stock images from Pixabay, or if you’re on the Classroom Plan or higher, upload your own images!

New Grid Layout

Upon adding any type of image to an answer, the answer options will update to a new grid layout that shows your added images in all their glory!

The new grid layout layout also displays on the Mobile View and Projector View. We’ve added some new design touches to beautifully display your answer images even when Show Live Answer Results (A) and Show Correct Answer (C) are enabled!

Answer images are cleverly designed into the Projector View to always ensure your answer results and the correct answer are still visible!

Additionally, you can now remove the labels from your answer options to only show the image added to your answer, for a true “no hint” display! To remove an answer’s label, simply type a blank into the answer and save it.

Our trivia team has put together an answer images demo game that is now published in our trivia library and available now! Simply log into Crowdpurr, create a new trivia game, and in the #Trending category look for the newly published Answer Images Trivia game.

To add to the coolness of the new Answer Images feature, we’ve updated the Export Questions and Import Questions tools to fully support all parts of your trivia game or poll! Now, when exporting questions to a CSV all of the following will be saved to the CSV:

Additional Improvements

In addition to the above major improvements and features we also added these smaller improvements.

GIF and Image Uploading Redesign 🖼️

We updated the design for how all images and GIFs are uploaded in Crowdpurr. You’ll notice an easier to use pop-up across the app. The new design reduces clicks and improves cropping and switching between upload types.

Under The Hood Updates ✨

We completely updated all components of Crowdpurr under-the-hood. This included major version updates to our database, our software framework, and every library and package we use. Over 100+ performance and security updates were made to make Crowdpurr run its smoothest, fastest, and most secure version yet! You may have noticed a few bumps in the road the last two weeks… and we worked diligently to iron those out.

Bug Fixes and Minor Updates 🐞

We’re always updating the app and fixing bugs. Want to read up on all the latest bug fixes and tweaks we make to the app each week? Then cruise on over to Crowdpurr Community and bookmark our Official Version Updates thread to get updates whenever we update a new version of the app.

What’s Next?

We’re still working on some fun new question types. Additionally, Philip Trickey has been doing a great job with the Crowdpurr Weekly Trivia Show Podcast. We have been previewing a non-interactive trivia show the last few weeks to polish our podcasting skills. Stay tuned for an update very soon that will launch the interactive version of the show along with an amazing new feature.
