May Changelog

Updated on November 21, 2018

We’re excited to introduce the Plaid Changelog! This is the inaugural post in a
new series we’re publishing that will highlight new products, features, and
upgrades we launch each month to keep you up to date on all Plaid happenings.

Auth for over 1,500 institutions, a significant increase from only ~60 in


We launched big design upgrades for Plaid Link
this month. Link on the desktop now has the same look and feel that came to mobile
in October and iOS in March. We also
introduced device-specific styling—such as native fonts, user interface
patterns, and navigation cues— on iOS and Android to make Link feel as native
and natural as possible.
