June 9, 2020 — Scientists and mathematicians rejoice: In-line equations are here, with a few other enhancements for the rest of us.
Previously, adding math within Notion pages required the
Math Equation block. Now, you can include equations with other text, in-line. Simply place

No More “Untitled Views”
When creating a new view in a database, its default title would be an undesirable “Untitled view.” Now, it’s automatically titled for its format, such as “Board view.”

- Improved formatting for Number property values formatted as currency, such as Yuan and Ruble
- The mobile Web Clipper now supports dark mode on iOS
