New in Oct 2022: Improved Confetti, Profiles, Template Library & More!

Hello all – it’s update time! We’ve got a bunch of changes across Metro Retro, starting with an improved confetti cannon! Friendly reminder that all updates are in the new version of Metro Retro – upgrade your account for free to try them out.

Testing the confetti cannon is a hard job, but someone’s got to do it.

App Updates

This is a summary of the main updates, for full details see the release notes.

  • The confetti has new streamers – go and try it!
  • Simplified team dashboard
  • Changes to the Template Library
  • Personalize your profile – add your picture, choose handwriting font & pen color.
  • Super powers for consultants with the new Host plan

We’re also now counting each piece of confetti fired as a metric. On the first day of counting there were 261,576 individual pieces of confetti burst, but the second day had 1.16 MILLION! It would be an ecological disaster if this were real confetti! We’ll find a fun way to share this trivia going forward.


Metro Retro now has nearly 100 unique templates across a range of collaborative meetings, with more on the way for agile events, product & project management, icebreakers, brainstorming & more.

If there’s a template you think would be great in Metro Retro, add it here and we’ll build it for everyone to use.
