Chord Electronics’ Gofigure app, the set-up and configuration companion for the company’s Poly and 2go portable streamers/servers, has been updated to include new radio-listening features, SD card album playback and improved stability.
The key updates include improved radio station and playlist support, with faster access over Wi-Fi through caching, a playlist generator* for the Quick Play function, plus enhanced status messaging and stability.
The new playlist generator feature allows Gofigure to scan any SD card/s inserted into 2go or Poly for music and create playlists for every stored album, giving a quick and easy way to play all stored albums without the need for either a Wi-Fi connection or another app.
The new version of Gofigure is available for Android and iOS devices, and can be downloaded directly from the Google Play Store and Apple’s App Store, respectively. Android 10 users are encouraged to download a specific version of Gofigure from the Chord Electronics website directly at: chordelectronics.co.uk/android; Android 10 users installing from Google Play Store will be redirected back to the Chord Electronics download page.
A fresh install of Gofigure is always recommended, however, some devices may auto-update; iOS 13 and Android 7 (or higher) are recommended for running the latest version.
In order to fully take advantage of the latest version of Gofigure, Chord Electronics’ 2go and Poly streamer/server will receive their own OTA (Over The Air) firmware updates soon after; 2go will update to v. 1.5.0 in May and Poly will receive a ‘light’ update in coming weeks, priming the device for a rollout of larger, successive updates throughout 2021.
Chord Electronics’ design partners have been able to implement the updates despite a challenging backdrop of Covid-19-related production slowdowns, which have affected all aspects of electronics manufacturing in recent months. However, the team is fully committed to moving development forward and is working hard to continually develop the company’s streaming software and improve the Gofigure app experience.
*Requires a (forthcoming) firmware update for 2go. Playlist generator update available for Poly later in 2021.
