Big Changes at 23andMe

Today, members of 23andMe received a letter from the CEO about the "New Experience" to be unveiled.  Her flowery rhetoric indicates that big changes are in the works, coming to 23andMe early next year. Important details were not shared in the letter. It is possible that those of us who tested with the older Vchips may be required to be retested. The company has not indicated whether those of us who were tested with an earlier chip would be charged for the retesting and/or, if we will be unable to access all the features of the website.
More to follow as further information is received.
One change took place today: The cost of the test is now $199 instead of $99.
