    Hi Amanda, thank you for your answer but it's not my question sorry. Maybe I wasn't clear...

    You gave us a roadmap more than 6 months ago.. Where are the features you told us we were going to get in the 2 months roadmap and now in the 6 months roadmap..?

    no training plans from the 2 months roadmap and nothing from the 6 months roadmap...

    Now we are reaching almost the 8th month from your announcement..

    Hi Willy, 

    Apologies for any confusion!

    Our timeline has changed since this roadmap was posted. However, we are working on a rather large update which we hope to release in the very near future. I don't have an exact timeline to offer you, but please know that our team is working extremely hard to complete the update. 

    I'm very excited about the features that are going to be released and I think you and others in our community are really going to like them as well. 

    We appreciate your patience and understanding! Please feel free to email us at support@getvi.com if you have any other questions!

    Thank you to let us know... lol

    Personally and I'm sure I'm not the only one.. I don't care about getting a rather large update, I want what you promised us 8 months ago on a 6 months roadmap..

    We have gotten maybe 10% of what we were supposedly getting...

    Now you are saying your roadmap changed without letting us know before and you don't want to give us any further informations about when and what...

    It's absolutely not professional.. Sorry to say that but your words are just wind... 

    Take away the complaint section and now that... if I wasn't so upset I think I would say is it a joke !?...

    Well, I think this company shared a roadmap thing that normally nobody does as far as I know. And a road map is a promise? Qhen I did projects at university in the UK you plan things, and you come out with some other ideas or problems and you can change that without spending time saying us what are they doing, as this usually changes and would be a lot of promises broken for you. I want all the resources at work and not waste hours of mnpower calming us down as we are not babies. I will wait for a good release whenever it is done. As I am waiting for the WILD videogame. I loved when in the E3, a video showing a videogame “promised” 5 years ago, said: it will be released, whenever it is done. I thought that was for the new generations that want everything nowlike spoilered children.

    Well, a 6 months roadmap is a plan for the next 6 months, right? it's not implied, you can read the 6, right? You are talking about university.. I learned in my university in France that you should always give to yourself/team reasonable goals.. Not saying.. If you can't even accomplished what you plan to do in a 2 months roadmap, don't make a 6 months roadmap.. Ask your team before making roadmap if it's in their capabilities to reach it.. 

    And just to end with it.. If you have a forum, it is to keep your customers informed... by keeping your clients informed, you avoid  your clients getting upset.. This is the base for customers services ;)

     

    PEACE!!..

    Yeah, a roadmap is a plan, and you try to follow it. For the rest you said, fair enough. I just prefer to give them a chance as I don’t know what kind of problems they encountered and maybe to keep us informed with specific thing would keep us confused. I am new here...didn’t they say anything like they were working on it but will release it a bit later than expected? If they didn’t I am with you, and they should improve communication in this area but if not, that would be enough for me. Peace man. Regards.

    Hi Willy (and Sergi),

    We appreciate your feedback and are truly grateful that you are so passionate about Vi and that you're challenging us to develop her into the full vision we believe she can be.

    Here are a few points that should help you understand the context of our work over the last few months and the upcoming product releases:

    - Following our roadmap release on November 16th, 2017, the product and R&D team went heads down to keep developing and testing every single feature. During this process (as happens at every innovative product company) we kept measuring the experience level and feature needs of our current users (through surveys, focus groups, and customer support inquiries). Throughout this process, we discovered new and exciting ideas that were highly valuable to Vi’s experience. We also found that some features on our roadmap weren’t yet valuable enough after developing some prototypes and testing. Here are examples of these two types of features:

        - “Wellness” features such as mindfulness were proven to be nice-to-have but required further development to make sure they significantly added to your experience with Vi. We have decided to keep prototyping and testing these features until we truly feel we have something unique and valuable to deliver. They are both on our near-term radar and we’ll make sure to keep you guys updated as we progress towards launching them.

         - Other features have risen to a higher priority in last few months, such as real-time workout guidance by Vi. This includes Vi being more directive and personalized throughout the session, personalized training plans based on user’s goals, level, usage, patterns, and effort zones. We also already released a new social sharing feature that we'll continue to update.

    - You’ll be happy to hear we have all been working extremely hard on those new features and they are already being tested internally by the team as an Alpha version. The beta version will be tested shortly after and we’ll then move into a full public release.

    If you’re interested, we can ask our product and QA team to add you to our Beta testing group and we may be able to give you a taste of the experience ahead of time, however, you should absolutely expect to catch some bugs during that time! ;)

    Please know you can email us any time at support@getvi.com and we'll be happy to answer any questions you have.

    Again, we appreciate your involvement and passion. Thank you for supporting our mission to build the world’s best AI body & mind trainer.
