Cloud labs (for enterprise and teams)
It’s official. We’ve got over 80 new Azure cloud labs (and more on the way). For accounts with access to our interactive learning content, cloud labs join our lineup of tools you can use to get hands-on practice—including labs (formerly scenarios) to build new skills with step-by-step guidance, challenges to apply those skills with no guidance (just hints), and sandboxes to experiment in a safe environment.
Our editorial team has curated on-demand courses that sync up with the essential skills you need for today’s top IT roles. And you can track your progress.
Real-time captions are now available during live events and in recordings. And you can include live events in the playlists you create for a more immersive custom-curated learning experience that you can share with your teams.
Want to organize or contextualize your playlist items? You can now create section headers and item-level notes. To see these enhancements in action, take a look at how our editorial team used them in these resource center playlists.

Whether spring is springing or fall is falling in your neck of the woods, we’ve got new features and tools that will help you reach your learning goals. Take a look.
The reader is where the learning happens, so we’re always looking to improve it. You can now pin the table of contents and keep it open while you scroll through a book. Plus, chapters and subsections in the table of contents are now condensed and expandable for quicker navigation. And it’s even easier to add, edit, and delete highlights as you read.
We’ve added 1,500 new audiobooks in technology, business, and leadership topics from top publishers like Harvard Business Review, McGraw Hill, and O’Reilly. Add your favorites to a playlist—and save important chapters to playlists while you listen.
It kicks off May 24! The Architectural Katas challenge lets teams come up with a solution that best solves a real problem.

Our next round of Superstream events will give you an insider’s look at the latest in distributed computing, NLP in production, analytics engineering, cloud security, zero trust, and more. Don’t miss out.

Recurring live events
Sometimes it’s the perfect course or event but just not the right timing. With live events recurring throughout the year, you can easily see all upcoming dates in one place and pick the time that best fits your schedule.
New and upcoming Superstreams

With sandboxes, you can safely experiment with technologies and practice what you’ve learned. There’s no environment to set up—just write and run code as you learn, right in your browser. Check out our new PowerShell and Spark sandboxes or dive into others from Kubernetes to Rust and Bash.

A new unified content experience across books, videos, and learning paths offers a ton of new features and improvements to explore.
- Books now give you detailed progress monitoring for the entire book (and for each chapter) as well as the ability to add the book or chapter to a playlist.
- Videos and learning paths have a new picture-in-picture functionality that lets you watch any video while working in other tabs or windows. You can follow along in a live sandbox environment or ask O’Reilly Answers about something you’ve just heard.

With O’Reilly Answers, you can already get quick, specific answers to your questions in the form of snippets of code and highlighted passages from books. But now you’ll also get answers through video courses, popular Superstream online tech conferences, and case studies.
Mobile app updates
Have an iOS mobile device? You now have the option to scroll or swipe through pages. Just select Scroll Mode or Swipe Mode on the toggle in the reader settings. And the Android app is lighter and brighter, with a more modern aesthetic and improved legibility. (Coming soon to iOS.)
