Next week, we’ll be releasing the next update to Roon 1.8 and we want to invite our loyal lifetime subscribers to try out the new features before anyone else. Here’s a peek of what to expect…
Everyone benefits from better-looking artist photos and band logos in Roon, so we’ve created Art Director, a fun new tool that puts you in control of how images are shown in Roon. Using Art Director, you can adjust the positioning of artist photos, upload logos and images, and vote for your favorite images.
Playlists by Roon Labs
Until now, the weekly playlists we create have only lived on TIDAL and Qobuz and haven’t been accessible in Roon. In our latest release, you can now access everything our music team has curated, directly from your Home screen on both streaming platforms.
We’ve completely overhauled the search functionality to make it easier than ever to find the music you’re looking for. Now, when you search for music in Roon you should see fewer inaccurate or confusing search results, especially when it comes to your own library.
Improved buffering and caching for streaming content
We’ve made changes to Roon’s buffering and caching infrastructure when playing streaming content. The new implementation is designed to use a lighter touch when interacting with your network and internet connection, making streaming less intensive for your Roon Core.
Easier volume limits
We’ve redesigned the Zone Settings screen so it’s even easier to set volume limits that prevent your music from getting too loud. The new design also makes it simple to configure auto-sleep functionality and other settings for your audio devices.
