Shortcut Labs provides anyone with a Standard Plan or higher early access to new Shortcut features before they're broadly released. These features are ready to use, but are also still in development, which means your feedback can and will help shape what they become (or don't become).

Shortcut Labs is available right now. Watch the video below and / or read the blog post below to learn more.
