Introducing Velocity Alerts

by Jason St. Pierre, Product Manager

Since the birth of Crashlytics, our passion has always been to help you fix the most prevalent issues quickly and painlessly. Just last month, we released badges to help you hone in on crashes that stand out against the rest.

Today, we’re thrilled to introduce Velocity Alerts: intelligent, proactive alerting on the most critical issues happening in your app. Now, you truly know when you need to take action right away.

Powered by the #1 mobile analytics solution

While our system already distills and prioritizes your crashes based on their impact, there was more we could do to make your life even easier. By combining your app’s crash data with usage analytics from Answers, our new Velocity Alerts enable you to triage unexpected, high-impact issues with minimal effort.

Now, once you’ve enabled Answers as part of Crashlytics, our system will proactively check to see if there is a statistically significant number of sessions that have ended due to a crash related to one issue on a particular build. If so, we'll let you know if that issue is a hot patch candidate and needs your attention immediately right on your dashboard. You’ll also get an email alert in your inbox as well as a push notification if you’re using the Fabric mobile app(Android support coming soon). With Crashlytics, you’ll never miss a critical bug!

While at it, we’ve also redesigned all of our notification emails so important information are even more clear and actionable.

We couldn’t be happier to release this so you can sit back, relax and just focus on building the best app. If you’re already using Crashlytics with Answers, Velocity Alerts are automatically enabled for you. If not, get started with Answers!
