As September is coming to an end, we’re excited to be able to announce some big enhancements for your ROCKI! Both the ROCKI Android app and the ROCKI firmware are receiving a big update and you’ll see a few new and exciting features popping up!
Over the past months we have received a great deal of feedback through our app analytics, support desk, email inbox, forums and social media channels. Based on this feedback, we published an Android app update on Sept 16th (v.1.0.5) to fix compatibility issues with Samsung phones as well as fixing an abundance of reported app crashes.
Closely monitoring the feedback of the v.1.0.5 app, we have been fixing the remaining issues and will be rolling out another Android app update (v1.0.7) later on today .
Version v.1.0.7 of the Android app will include some major changes and improvements such as:
- Deezer music service integration!
Add your Deezer account and play all your music to ROCKI right from the ROCKI app. Search through Deezer while staying in the ROCKI app, browse Deezer recommended tracks, top charts, radio stations, your favorite tracks and your playlists.
- Fixes for over 60 reported crashes and stability issues
- Improved back button functionality
- Various interface improvements
- Improved playback of queue
- Notification bar improvements
- Improved Settings page
ROCKI Device Firmware
This week, we will be rolling out ROCKI firmware v.1.4.1 which includes the following changes:
- Fix for connecting to WEP secured networks
- Samsung compatibility fixes
- Security fixes
- ROCKI name to support special characters
Once the update is available, your ROCKI will automatically update to the latest firmware.
After a period of testing and refining the Spotify integration with the help of our beta testing group and Spotify Developers we have sent out ROCKI samples to Spotify for official certification.
Once the certification is given, Spotify Connect will be available for all users!
Multi Room sync
We have been testing a beta release of our Multi-Room Sync with a beta user group and are getting great results. New beta firmware will be available this week as we are getting the firmware ready for the official release.
