Great stuff in my opinion

I do not know everything about genetics but I am a computer scientist so I know a little bit about science . And they seems to know a lot . You can also export you genome and get an analysis from another service. The privacy is supposed to be good. Me I am cynical so I jump into that service like aléa jacta est lol and what happens happens concerning the privacy. I jumped also because google backed that company with some investment so I hope some kind of security comes from those guys. And voila I discovered I was Nigeria 42% and 90% African and. 10% whites européan as a french west indiens guy it’s pretty accurate in my opinion . I was expecting Senegal because that’s where the french took the slaves . By the way I am a slaves descent . Yep it’s a service that help me reconnect with Africa . For the European side I already speak the language and live their that’s already a lot of connection lol . So thanks 23 and me for that service very smith and efficient and not expensive compared to what it could have been for all the value . Great execution at scale . Bye

23&Me has outstanding potential. But that’s the issue it’s just waiting to be taken further and explored.

I love the predicted tree, but there’s a limit to how many you can add and there’s an issue with the design.

I like the coloured line idea because it shows easily who you are and are not related to, but the way the lines all show up I often find myself tracing the wrong line when I’m looking for someone in the tree.

A way you could approach this is by using the same kind of square-based portrait design that Ancestry uses, it’s a lot easier to follow.

Too much of the map is on show all of the time and its difficult and time consuming to find people on your tree. To combat this you could show maybe 2 or 3 generations of direct ancestors/descendants and in any one of those generation groupings have arrows (also like ancestry and FamilySearch) for those with children meaning that the direct line is more accessible and so are their immediate families while making sure to limit the unwanted number of family on display.

23&Me has outstanding potential. But that’s the issue it’s just potential at the moment. You’ve conceptualised it now you need to realise it.

Although I love Ancestry and still use it I would prefer to use 23&Me as my main hub but it’s just not there with the fine-tuning.

It's OK

Since bugbear things first. Weight in reports is based on the outdated pounds that pretty much only north America uses. Rest of the world moved on to KG a long time ago.

Originally I created a profile on the website then logged in via the app and it made a 2nd unwanted profile.

The initial dump of information is overwhelming. But given time I'll learn.

They really need a feedback feature on the website for paid members to be able to quickly and easily raise suggestions for improvement. It's like free business consultation.

It's all really interesting info and tempting to get family members to buy into it. The health side of it is far more interesting than having some random fit contact me because we have all of 3% matching DNA.

I think also is important that users can mark reports to be accurate or not. I find almost 50% of what the reports say about my traits are inaccurate. That's the equivalent to guessing on a multiple choice test which leaves me to question just how good is this service really!
