Description Of Issue
Android App Freezing when connecting to Core. Was working fine before upgrading to Roon Remote 1.7 Build 521

Hi @Sam_Mills,

Thanks for the report, and apologies for the trouble! You can see the latest on this here:

Are you saying if we have an unsoppported device, then it’s game over? I have a samsung galaxy S9 that isn’t working. Come on¡ there is a very large number of android users out there. There are no reported issues on this matter with apple users so far. Please let us know. Is buying apple remotes the only way to sort this out?

Don’t know how you’ve come up with that as the statement says.
“These tests will take some time due to the wide range of devices that we are testing, but we are hoping to release these improvements as soon as possible.”

Hi @Arturo_Saucedo,

To clarify — We are working on resolving the issues with these specific devices, as noted in the post linked above. iOS devices don’t use the same hardware so they’re not impacted by this issue. We hope to have the fix available soon!


We’ve released a new update, Roon 1.7 Build 528, which contains improvements that we believe will help with the issues you are experiencing here. Please see our release notes below:

Hi Dylan,

Will it take a while for Roon Remote 1.7 Build 528 to be released? I installed Roon Core 1.7 Build 528, uninstalled Roon Remote 1.7 Build 521 but when I reinstalled it from Google Play Store it was still the old version. The old version of Roon Remote still have the hanging problem with Roon Core 1.7 Build 528. Any additional information would be helpful.

Hi @Sam_Mills,

Sometimes it can take a little bit for the update to be available but I believe it should be available for you now. Have you received the update on your device?

Thanks Dylan for your quick turn-around. I did the update of Roon Remote and now it’s working again.
Thank You very much!

Sam Mills
