Interactive Components beta, FigJam, and Dropbox’s use of Smart Animate

Exciting updates from Figma this week! First, they added comments to Figma Community, so now you can ask questions or provide feedback on plugins and files. Second, Interactive Components announced on the previous Config reached public beta! I collected a few demos and experiments made by early beta testers. Last but not least, news leaked about FigJam, a new whiteboard space Figma is working on — can’t wait to learn more!

Don’t miss an article on how Dropbox uses Smart Animate to illustrate product design concepts, a guide on switching between light and dark modes, a video stream of building an official Tailwind UI Figma kit, and an open-source Figma alternative. Enjoy!
