Magento is on fire!!
Every new release comes with features that make the E-commerce platform better in various aspects. You can also contribute your share at Magento2 Project Repository
At Meetanshi, the team is always looking forward to the new release. Keeping up with that tradition, the developers were discussing the possibilities and features of the new version over a cup of tea! (Yes, we are tea lovers! ☕)
And the post is only the gist of Magento certified & expert developers’ discussions 😉
Magento 2.4 – What To Expect?
Apparently, “a shiny new API”!!!!!!
The Magento 2.4.0 version is expected to be released with a set of awesome new features, improvements, component updates, and great product stability.

Magento GraphQL Improvements
Magento 2 GraphQL is a data query language to offer an alternative to REST and SOAP web APIs for frontend development.
- Mutations to support checkout & payments
- Storefront GraphQL API for checkout, orders, My Account.
- Additional improvements in the GraphQL framework.
Magento 2.4 is expected to offer full GraphQL coverage! You can check here for more details. However, this GraphQL repository will be archived soon and a new GitHub repository will be created.
Moreover, the official resources have promised a new concept of the Storefront API to the platform!
Surely, there’s going to be a lot more in Magento 2.4 for your Magento 2 store!
And a lot more conversations and debates at our office! I’ll keep updating this post when I overhear the developers 😉
Till then, stay tuned, stay updated.
I would also like to know what do you think about the upcoming Magento 2.4 release in the Comments section below.
