The axion is one of the best motivated dark matter candidates, simultaneously solving the Strong CP problem as well as providing the dark matter of the universe. However, in comparison to WIMPs the axion was historically neglected by experimental efforts. This has been changing in the last five years, which a bevy of new experiment proposals and results. I outline several recent updates for new detection ideas, including plasma haloscopes and axion detection with phonon-polaritons.
