Managing App Updates

We're in the habit of shipping new features, bug fixes, and customer requests regularly. Most of the time, these updates will be automatic so you don't need to spend your day running from room to room. 

Automatic Updates Requires version 2.0.0+

Most of the time, we'll be able to automatically push updates directly to your room displays. These include bug fixes, enhancements to the interface, new settings, etc that don't interact with your device's native settings.  

When the Rooms app receives an update, the interface will briefly flash and then reload, as seen in the video clip below. So as to not disrupt your day, updates will occur on the following schedule: 

  • Scheduled deployments: Several times a week, non-urgent updates will go out to all devices at 7pm in your local timezone. 
  • Manual deployments: In the event of a widespread bug, the patch will go out as soon as it's available. 

 

 

What happens if my device is offline?

If your device is offline when the update is released, the Rooms app will receive it once it comes back online. 

Manual Updates

We try to keep manual updates to a minimum. These include bug fixes or enhancements that that interact with your device's native settings. These also include major design or layout changes within the interface.

App versions 1.3+ show a blue notification when an update is available to download from the Google Play or iTunes App stores.
