Hi @Mandrake-And-Karen0 ,
Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts on this and previous releases. It’s always great to hear from a Superhost of tenure such as yourself.
I wanted to clarify some of your remarks above. As outlined on the Host release update, , we have released several products that are specifically in response to Host demand. To name a few: read receipts on messaging, checkout instructions to make it easier for Hosts to give guests clear guidance on finishing their stay, and price breakdown to make it as clear as possible to Hosts what their take home is for each booking.
Both my team and myself have manually read more than 1.5 million posts over the past nearly 8 years of the Community Center. In this time, we’ve seen multiple calls for the above mentioned updates as well as the desire for Airbnb to refocus on its roots of Room hosting The launch of Airbnb Rooms fits precisely your comment “Airbnb being primarily focused on hearing from "mega property hosts" and hotels but average hosts, people who have one Airbnb in their homes.”
I encourage you to read further on the update and perhaps try some out yourself! Here’s more details on the Private Rooms update I mentioned too.
Lastly, The fact that other Hosts think differently (than you) about a particular feature or update is, in essence, what makes this space such a rich resource.
Opinions will always differ and it’s important to let others have those opinions without remarking on it. Let’s constructively disagree!
Let me know what you think of the update once you’ve had a chance to dig in!
