Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin has revealed that a new check-in page is coming to the national COVID-19 app, MySejahtera. It will be implemented through a new update that will be deployed by the team behind the app tonight.
What makes the new check-in page different from the existing implementation is that it will show the users’ vaccination status. This way, they don’t have to go deep into the app’s profile section to directly show their digital vaccination certificate.
At the same time, the risk status on the new check-in page will also be much larger and colour-coded. Not only that, there is also a new section on the page that displays users’ last check-in location alongside the new check-out option which is designed to improve contact tracing according to Minister Khairy.
The check-in success page has also been updated to show one’s vaccination status. Minister Khairy has also noted that the app will receive additional improvement and updates in the coming weeks.
However, the update has yet to make its way to iOS App Store, Huawei AppGallery, and Google Play at the time this article was published. We will keep you posted once it goes live on these app marketplaces, so stay tuned.
[UPDATE – 3 Sept / 10:44 PM] The update has since made its way to Apple and Huawei users. Head on to our brief guide right here to get up to speed with the new check-out feature on MySejahtera.
[UPDATE: 5 Sep / 12:42 AM] Update v1.0.45 for MySejahtera has finally arrived for Android! Check out (heh) our report regarding the rollout right here for more details.
