ROCKI Play+ Update

Dear ROCKI Play+ backers,

As you might have seen last week, we sent out an email to all of you with some more info about the ROCKI Play+ and the different options we would like to offer you when it comes to receiving the ROCKI Play+.

The response so far has been great and most of you choose to give us a vote of confidence by picking the extra color covers option when the ROCKI Play+ ships.

Of course, we also understand that the wait has been long already and that is why we also would like to give you guys the chance to receive 2 ROCKI Plays instead of the ROCKI Play+ and ship them out to you straight away.

If you haven't yet, just fill in this form to let us know which option you prefer!

We have started Alpha testing the ROCKI Play+ with a select group of users and will update everyone about the ongoing results over the coming weeks.

We'd like to thank you all for your continued support and are excited to bring you good news soon!

ROCKI ON!

-Team ROCKI

ROCKI NYU Student Embassador Program

Top o' the morning Kickstarter backers!

We're launching a program where students at New York University can swag themselves a free ROCKI Play device.

In return all that's asked is applicants give some market feedback at the end of the trial, of course the numbers of the trial are limited so if you go to NYU then check out the NYU Careers boards or go to the application page here.... ROCKI Ambassador Application Page

If you are an NYU student or you know someone at NYU, sign up and spread the word!

If you are not at NYU but currently are a student, worry not! We are launching more student programs around the world (we just had to start somewhere). Let us know which university you go to and we'll be in touch!

ROCKI ON!

Deezer Integration, Automatic Firmware Updates and Multi Room Sync

2 likes

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!

ROCKI App

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.

Spotify Connect

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.
