Description Of Issue

  • The Chubby Buttons remote DOES NOT work with the Roon app for iOS.
  • The remote works as designed with all multimedia apps on iOS such as Spotify, Tidal, MConnect, Youtube, etc.
  • For example, I am able to skip, pause, and change volume with the Chubby Buttons remote.
  • Why is the iOS Roon Remote app the only one to NOT work with the Chubby Buttons remote?

Thank you for any help

Hello @German_Sevilla1,

The Roon Remote application on iOS currently supports bluetooth transport controls for local playback, meaning playback to the iOS device’s current output device.

I’ve submitted your feedback as a feature request for iOS transport controls for remote playback zones.
