Here are the Changes and Features Coming Soon to Draw Something

If you have downloaded Draw Something to your Android device and used it in any form, you should have received an email from OMGPOP, laying out the futures that are to come within the next couple of updates. As any overnight sensation goes, attempting to keep up with the growing number of users and requested features is not always easy. Thanks to hard work (and probably the purchase of them by Zynga), things are happening much quicker than most probably expected. An already addictive game is going to get that much better in the very near future.  

Here is the full list of new goodies:

  • Sharing drawings on Twitter and Facebook
  • Save drawings to your devices’ photo library
  • Notifications for Android devices
  • Increase of the max streak from 99 to 999 (you guys are rocking it!)
  • Pull down to refresh game status
  • UNDO button for your last brush stroke
  • Even better performance
  • More words
  • And a slew of other fixes and tweaks

They also plan to fix these bugs in particular:

  • Coins, colors, and bombs not displaying (If you don’t see them right now, don’t worry, your stuff is safe!)
  • Games crashing or getting a black screen
  • Bugs that prevent you from completing your turn

Oh, and the ability to chat is coming soon as well. +1.

     taking it over completely and not even letting us see the time is
    annoying

      I agree, this app should be like all others, allowing the notification bar to exist, even if they made a special icon to access the notification bar from within DrawSomething, perhaps similar to the separate app Bird Bar that ‘Rob K’ mentioned. As it is, the sound notification is heard for notifications, switch to home, and often DrawSomething moves to the next step in the drawing rather than resume at the same point. Good game overall!

    It’s a fun game as a last resort. i’d rather play other games, but I see the appeal. The changes are welcome and look forward to it.

    I love playing some Android games, but I have not really had much interest in this game, not really for me.  But, last Saturday night I was at bar/bowling alley with a large group of people and there were 4 women sitting at table all across from each other all playing this game on their phones. All I could think was “Really?”  Is it really that much fun?

    I like it all.

    The game is certainly fun and these all sound like solid improvements.

    They should work on improving the battery usage because this thing burns through the battery of everyone I’ve talked to, iOS and Android alike.

  • Actofgod

    How about letting us fast forward so I don’t have to sit through people taking 5 minutes to draw a cat.

    • Jh82

       there is a skip button

      • TrevorSP

        That’s only for watching people guess your drawing. He means when your watching them draw you can’t skip

        • http://twitter.com/dl_evans dustin evans

          Doesn’t it skip if you guess the word correctly? So watching them guess your drawing -> skip button. Waiting for them to finish -> guess the word.

  • termiNader

    Push notifications?

  • Rob K

    I have been waiting for the notifications on Android.

    For anyone out there needing notification bar during full screen apps or games check out an app called bird bar, it let’s you store at the top, or any other area of the screen you want, and it will pop down the notification bar and time. Still wish there was an option to keep notification bar on screen, like it does on my tablet.
