TheBrain 9 Beta Release 

TheBrain 9 is currently available as a beta release. Note: You must have an active services subscription to use TheBrain 9. Access is available via:


TheBrain 9 includes an integrated update service which detects new releases when it is launched if it hasn't checked recently. You can initiate an update check by choosing Check for Update from the Help menu on Windows or from TheBrain menu on Mac.

There are 3 public update channels which you can select between via Preferences > System > Updates:

  • Alpha - The absolute latest. Frequent updates as often as every day or two.
  • Beta - The leading edge but not the frontline. Updates every few weeks.
  • Stable - As isolated as possible from bugs and new features until they have been used by others extensively. Updates monthly or as required.

We have put significant effort into making the update process more much seamless in TheBrain 9. The software will download and run the update process without the need for you to open a web browser and interact with an install wizard.

If you are having trouble with the update process, please visit
If you continue to experience issues after following the directions there, please email support@thebrain.com.

TheBrain Cloud Services

TheBrain Cloud Services are updated on a continual basis and are automatically available to you as soon as they are made.

For TheBrain 8, cloud services can be accessed via https://webbrain.com/login

For TheBrain 9 beta, the web client is still under heavy development and is not ready for regular use. It is available only for feedback and testing purposes and should not be relied on at this time. It is currently available at https://preview.webbrain.com
