Today we launch a new version of Orbe with major new changes!

When it comes to geolocation, each brand has specific needs. On the first visit, some want to display a welcome popup for personalized messages, while others prefer it only when the user is in the wrong experience.

On the second visit, some brands choose to automatically redirect if the user's selection matches their location, while others always redirect to the user's selection.

Regarding the language selector, there are many options to offer a personalized experience.

⚙️ Starting today, brands can configure advanced geolocation behaviors from the new Settings section in Orbe, available on any paid plan.

Discover more about these options: https://help.orbe.app/settings/behavioral-preferences
