Description of Issue

I own a car radio with Android OS (11). There is an option to connect a USB stick for extra storage. I would like to be able to download tracks for local use on this stick since i don’t have any space on the radio’s memory. I saw in settings for Roon Arc that there is a Beta release for USB support. I enrolled in the early user’s group but i couldn’t use this option. Is it something that will be available in the near future?

@Jon_Spijker, the beta feature for ARC on Android is for bypassing the native default 48K sampling rate on Android phones and enabling bit perfect playback to an external USB DAC. External storage currently is not supported.

That is disappointing because I have no memory space on my radio to store more downloads. Is it something i can expect in the near future?

I cannot speak directly for Roon, but they have not yet provided a committed schedule on the storage option using an memory card or for Android Auto support.
