Back in July 2023, we introduced our new web app, inviting 150+ of you to test and share feedback and ideas to help us build a better version of Speckle XYZ (today's legacy app). After a Great Rename and lots of testing and learning, we’re finally shipping the official version of the new Speckle web app.

Speckle Brings You and Your Team Closer

At Speckle, our mission is to enable anyone navigating within the Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC) industry to perform in the most effective and productive way. The new Speckle web app represents an opportunity to bring our community and AEC peers together and enable multiple disciplines and stakeholders to collaborate successfully. At the same time, managers get a gist of what’s going on in real-time.

::: tip

To access the new web app, you need to head to, while will be deprecated at some point (more in the FAQs at the end of this article).


In a nutshell, the new Speckle web app offers:

How does the New Web App Differentiate from the Legacy App?

Key changes

You’ve probably heard this already - some key concepts are being renamed: streams, branches and commits are now projects, models and versions. The structure stays the same.

Projects contain multiple models, and each model can contain multiple versions. This change is very important as we believe it’ll make it more intuitive and natural to work with Speckle - no more need to second guess what a branch should be!

This change represents the tip of the iceberg as we’re also introducing a new look! A modern, easy-to-use, and friendly interface to encourage you and your team to adopt Speckle at scale. Some of you have even referred to the new experience as “impressive”, “smooth” and “creative”.

Features & Capabilities

The new Speckle web app brings back your favorite functionalities from the legacy app and more:

  1. Collaboration: Compare Versions, Follow Mode, Embeds
  2. Speed and performance: Federations, Faster Speed Loading Time
  3. Upgraded experience: Foundation for Automate (Beta)

So, let's dive in:

1. Collaboration


2. Speed & Performance


3. Smoother & Upgraded Experience

Terms & Conditions of Use

You don’t have to migrate your data from the legacy app to new Speckle web app. You simply need your login credentials to either log in or sign up.

Hear from our Community:

Jonathan Rabagliati, Geometry and Computational Design Lead at SOM: “I'm a real believer in Speckle, and I really value the responsiveness to users. It's remarkably reliable and incrementally developing."

Mohamed Manseur, Chief Architect BIM Coordinator at CSCEC: “Everything is great for the new features, it’s becoming faster and faster.”

Jason Sachs from figureForward, architect, creator of day1bim Tools, Associate Assistant Professor ensa Grenoble / Université Grenoble Alpes: “The Viewer is so nice, especially sharing the model with non-professionals.”

Q. How do I get access to the new Speckle web app?
Head to and log in using your existing credentials. The new web app is configured to consume the same data as the legacy app (, and therefore no migration is needed.

Q. What happens to existing models and scripts using the Legacy Speckle URLs?
All legacy URLs to legacy streams and commits will redirect to the relevant new URLs.

Q. Are the API endpoints changing?
The GraphQL and REST APIs continue to support the legacy queries and paths as-is. Additional GraphQL queries support new terminology. These can be mixed and matched. The viewer introduces a LegacyViewer object, which can be a shim between the new viewer API 2.0 and legacy methods.

Q. What about the desktop connectors?
Our desktop connectors are already compatible with the new web app! You can publish and load versions of your models using our 20+ connectors from the new Speckle web app. Starting on 2.18, our official connector release will natively support the new web app URLs and naming conventions.

Q. How do I access the new web app from connectors? What about URLs from my existing files?
You can now upgrade your accounts from Manager for Speckle 2.13.0. Simply open Manager for Speckle and click to upgrade your account. All official Speckle connectors and your existing files should work seamlessly with new web app URLs.

There are, however, currently two exceptions: Blender and QGIS:

We are working on supporting this within QGIS and Blender for a future connectors release.

Q. What happens with my existing Grasshopper and Dynamo scripts?Your existing scripts will work with both new and old URLs. No change is required, but you should consider using new URLs.

Q. Do the C# and Specklepy SDKs Support the new web app URLs?
Yes! You can currently use old and new URLs with our SDKs (using the StreamWrapper class). However, see below regarding multi-model URLs.

Q. What about connector and SDK multi-model URL support?
Please note that multi-model URLs and URLs with federation filters are not currently supported within connectors or our SDKs. This support is being considered for future releases of the SDK and connectors, particularly for Grasshopper and Dynamo Nodes. We’ll update you if this support is added.

Q. What does “Upgrade Account” mean?
Manager for Speckle will check your registered accounts and highlight any pointing to a “Legacy” server. This is one where the old terminology is still alive. In the case of the Speckle public server, where both experiences are available on the same server, this option allows us to “Upgrade” your account to the new web URL of the same server.

Manager for Speckle will also notify you of accounts to upgrade on launch if you have enabled desktop notifications.

Q. But I’ve already been testing the new web app.
If you have two accounts registered to the public Speckle servers, you will be prompted to remove the legacy one, which will now be considered a duplicate.

Q. I have existing saved exchanges in my Revit/Rhino/Navisworks document.
If you upgrade your connectors to the latest (>=2.18) version, Speckle will handle your upgraded account and enable it to be used seamlessly with the new Speckle URLs. So, don’t forget to update your connectors to 2.18.

Q. When will the legacy Speckle stop existing?
The legacy app on for Speckle will enter security maintenance later this year and will receive security updates as required.

Q. I am self-hosting; how do I get the new look?
First, ensure you are up-to-date and using the latest version of Speckle Server to get the new look. We recommend backing up your database before upgrading; instructions for this can be found in our guide.

If you deployed your self-hosted server using Docker Compose, please refer to the Docker Compose file in our documentation. You should amend your Docker Compose file to match the updates in our documentation. The Docker Compose file in our documentation uses the new look by default.

If you deployed your self-hosted server using Helm for Kubernetes, you must enable frontend_2, by adding the following to your values.yaml file:

  enabled: true

Please follow the instructions for deploying the Speckle server using Helm, as described in our documentation.

Q. I have found bugs or have feedback; what should I do?
Head to our Community Forum for real-time support, or submit feedback using the User Feedback form.

Thanks for tuning in, we can't wait to hear what you think about this new upgrade!
