Airbnb is implementing 50 new functions, many of which are geared towards travel flexibility born of telecommuting.

In a blog post on Wednesday, the company outlined updates that include a verified Wi-Fi tool that lets you check a listing’s internet speed, a new translation feature, and the ability to search listings up to a year in advance.

“For the first time in history, millions of people can now travel anytime, anywhere, anytime, and even live anywhere on Airbnb,” CEO Brian Chesky said in the post.

AirBnb is also unveiling a review of its accessibility features that will ensure that what is listed is accurate, as well as AirCover, which is $ 1 million in damage protection and $ 1 million in liability coverage, among other things for hosts.
