Volumio Android App BETA Testing Programme

Postby pintea » Tue May 01 2018 19:39

UPDATE:
Version 2.645 is out as of 22 May 2018, it may take some time to roll out to everyone.
Thank you immensely for the feedback so far! Keep it up!

Hi Everyone!

Well, needless to say, the Volumio Android App is a killer, and not in the good way!
So far the users haven't been so happy about it so we are putting a lot of work into it lately.

The BETA testing programme is now open for the Volumio Android App
If you would like to try out the latest features and additions and follow the development upclose, this is where you sign in: https://play.google.com/apps/testing/volumio.browser.Volumio

Registrations to the programme will be open for a limited amount of time so hurry up if you really want to!


Please note that it may take a while for you to start getting the BETA updates once you opt in.

Keep in mind that there might be even multiple updates a day on the BETA channel.
Finally, I will apologize in advance for all the bugs that you WILL encounter if you decide to opt in.
Just understand that the Volumio ecosystem is a pretty complex one, and it's not so easy to get it right the first time, we will keep working on the Android App until it reaches perfection!


Until then, let's get to work!

You SHOULD use this post to leave feedback.
Any feedback should include the following:
Device:
Android Version:
App version:


Remember that feedback is the reason the world gets better!
Thank you in advance!

@burmar the BETA programme is aimed at the App's daily users, who as such already have the app :)

@Jucgshu waiting for feedback then!

@pintea & all,

Still didn't receive the beta version from the play store. It was no joke when you were mentionning it could take a while ;-)

@Jucgshu yeah, no kidding! From experience I can tell you that clearing Play Store's cache and just using it a bit often helps

Well guys, the new lock screen feature is really cool. The ability to pause right from the lock screen is awesome. Would be nice to have additional buttons like prev/next or volume -/+.

Must say it's now a lot faster to login to Volumio as well, and overall I'm really pleased with the upgrade.

Only problem is that the app seems to loose Volumio's connection after a while. Hense looses the lock screen controls and has to log back in, which is slower than just bringing back the app. But this was a problem that existed prior to the upgrade.

Great job @pintea ;-)

Hi @Jucgshu!

Thanks! Yeah we were wondering how bad the connection loss was and realized it's pretty bad still.
We will keep working on it and soon post some updates!

Best of Luck,
