Strava updates to the Feed, Segments and More

Latest news on all the Strava updates

It’s (literally) about time. You can now sort your feed chronologically. This change has been one of the most frequently requested ever, Strava know it took them a really long time to get to it, and so they’re happy to finally respond to athletes who have been asking for it.

Athletes know what they want – and go after it. And you’ve done just that in your consistent feedback about three features you’d like to see changes to, for a while now. So they couldn’t be happier to finally share updates to the feed, segments and Apple Watch syncing with you. They know it’s taken a long time to get these out, and going forward they’re committed to listening harder to your input and moving quickly on improvements that will make your experience better. Your feedback is what helped make these improvements possible. Teamwork in action.

More Control Over Your Feed

You’ve been asking about this for a while, so we’re thrilled to be able to deliver a lot more control over the order of activities you see in your feed. This means you’ll no longer miss cheering on a friend’s massive effort because you didn’t get to see it.

To give you an even more customized feed, we’re rolling out the capability to favorite the athletes you care about most. Their activities will be shown first in your feed and you can even choose to be notified whenever they upload something new. So you can always be the first to give your best friend kudos on their fresh PR.

Auto-Flagging for Accuracy

From now on, we’ll be working to cut down on the number of leaderboards that are clearly inaccurate and unfair. To do this, we improved the algorithm behind our auto-detection of segment records that aren’t quite right. Starting this week, when a new effort on a segment doesn’t look right, or even possible, that athlete will get a notification – on their phone and – that their effort was automatically flagged.

Sync Straight from Apple Watch

Uploading activities recorded with your Apple Watch directly to Strava is more reliable than ever. After connecting your Health app in Strava, you’ll be able to see your last 30 days of activities, choose which ones you want to import Strava, and then title, add photos and edit them as usual.

You no longer have to worry about duplicate uploading between your Strava and Health apps.

To connect your Health app – navigate to the Profile tab > Settings > Applications, Services and Devices. Then you’ll see the Health option at the bottom to allow you to connect.

Being able to transfer data between Apple’s Health app and Strava means all your hard work is accounted for across both platforms.
