Earlier this year, we announced our plans for Scratch 3.0 — the next generation of Scratch. Today, we are very excited to launch the Scratch 3.0 Beta.

During the beta period we’re inviting everyone to try the new Scratch 3.0 editor at beta.scratch.mit.edu. This new version works in all modern browsers across a broader range of devices, including tablets. Scratch 3.0 focuses on even more ways to create and get started. Check out the video below for a few highlights.

Get ready for the full release of Scratch 3.0

On January 2, 2019, we’ll integrate the Scratch 3.0 editor into the online community. We hope you’ll use the Beta period to become familiar with the new editor and some of the exciting new features and resources.

During this Beta period, the current Scratch online editor and community will continue to be available at scratch.mit.edu.

Scratch 3.0 will officially launch and connect to the Scratch online community in January 2019.
