Airbnb announced the biggest changes to the platform in the last 10 years, including Airbnb Categories and Split Stays. The global head of hosting for the home-sharing platform, Catherine Powell, joined Cheddar News to discuss the upgrades that expand searchability. “You open the app today and you will find 56 incredible categories, categories that are curated around themes like style. So style could be design, it could be tree houses, it could be A-frames or yurts," she noted. "Then we also have location. The location could be lakes, beaches, it could be the arctic. We have over 6000 homes in the arctic." Powell also addressed Airbnb's new remote work policy for its own employees.
