I saw this app sections functionality demo'd at Unite and I would love to test this out myself. I have a development store with the Unite 2019 preview enabled, but I can't seem to find how to do this. If someone could point me in the right direction that would be most appreciated.

 

Thanks.

This is a feature expected to be rolled out later this year, though there are no concrete dates.

@Visely-Team  However, I have been trying app sections on one of our app and developer preview store. Couldn't get it to be working. The app sections do not show in the store online editor. I am using debut theme for the dev store.

@Rishabh_Tayal maybe you know that, but still worths mentioning. At the moment of writing this, app sections/snippets are only available on Product Pages.

Yes. I am aware of that. Thanks for mentioning.

Are you able to make it work?

Finally, I was able to make the App Section make work. The solution was to install the new beta Debut theme on the development preview store. Here is the link to the beta theme. https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0002/3166/9762/files/Debut-0.1-beta.zip

 

However, the app snippet is still not working on the theme. I have uploaded my snippet code to our app snippets in the app. Anyone got it working?

I too have been trying to get App Section to work without success.  Any update to this?  Is there a newer version of the Beta theme file?  Thanks!
