The Lottie Feature Checker is now available on our latest v3.1.0 release!

The Lottie Feature Checker lets you see which Lottie features are used in your animation, and whether or not it would play across different players such as web, Android and iOS, among others.

Access all four formats available as asset links (Lottie JSON, optimized Lottie JSON, dotLottie and optimized dotLottie) on the LottieFiles platform!

You can also now preview the animations in your collections in a grid or document view, making it a whole lot easier for you to glance through all the animations in a collection as well as collaborate on them with your stakeholders.
