Upgrading your team to the current version of Postman

This section describes the steps to migrate your team to the latest version of Postman.

Postman v9 provides a consistent, improved API development experience. The Postman desktop app and Postman on the web are equally empowering—which one you use is a matter of preference for your workflows.

Upgrading to Postman v9

You can move from Postman v7 or v8 to Postman v9 by updating the app via Settings > Update > Download update.

Settings Update

You will need to restart Postman to install the update. Click Restart and Install Update.

Upgrading to v8 as a team
