Top 10 Feature Requests

This to me is the most annoying thing with Roon!! It feels so 90s. It takes me ten seconds to just adjust the volume via the app. Would be great if the app could stay alive!


The android app cannot be placed in the widget and does not remain active in the badge for a quick consultation … A little old-fashioned!

Set up Roon Extensions and use the Web Controller. It’s instant.

I made a PDF guide on my preferred way to do it (if you have a Raspberry Pi running DietPi, you can jump straight to step 11). Sucks that we have to use unofficial “hacks” to make Roon work properly on phones and tablets.


I’d like to have an easy option to buy music from Qobuz within the Roon app. With predefined settings where to store the files, which format etc. Could be great.


Selectable in Settings…


Check out the it’roXs extension - works really well as an always on Android notification widget and supports volume change using your phone’s buttons.
Totally agree that these features should be in the Roon mobile app, but this bridges the gap nicely for now (despite the daft name).

Where is it in Settings?

Wish it was there. It’s a feature request…

Ahh. Yes, I would also like fade-on-stop. As well as a short cross-fade (blend) when skipping to different points in a track or a short fade-in if you’re starting from any point other than the very beginning of a track. JRiver does both and it’s really nice for the sound to not be so jarring.


I’d like an option to mark unidentified albums if local tags are correct. For example an album can be unknown if a track is a few seconds different from the server result. So an extra icon would be perfect and with a single click to mark it.

Also a deeper integration with Tidal. What I mean with that. Now I have a few albums in to my collection. When I filter for OST I see only my library albums. Maybe a second row to show everything from Tidal without browsing through tags.

Roon Mobile

Video clips through Chromecast

Display controls … images are sometimes cutoff … Ie missing heads.

We’ll know soon enough, 1.8 cometh …

Officially in Beta

All I want is an “Stop MQA from playing forever” toggle.


This will not happen.
In freudian psychology this would be equivilant to “Killing the Father”


Swiping between different screens.

What do you mean by this? An example would help.

Amen! Sing it, brother! Searching classical music by genre or category is really essential

Hello there

I would like to add another one: translation. It’s a pity to have the bios only in English. Do we know why things are not translated?

That’s probably because good metadata is hard to come by, and you’d need at least one metadata provider per language. This said, machine translation can be surprisingly tolerable, so maybe it’d be possible to get DeepL integration.
