Dear everyone,

I am happy to announce new firmwares and mobile App.
At first, we appreciate interests in musicflow products and various feedback.

As I informed before, we release new firmwares and mobile App.
In this updates, we apply two major functionalities through cast receiver 1.21 version.

1. Google multiroom
From this updates, you can use google multiroom. As you know, you can make google group with devices supporting cast audio
But by the policy of google, you can't use LG multiroom functionality in cast audio any more except LG homecinema mode.
So, we apply the UX that user can switch functionality in LG musicflow App. by tapping

※ You still can use left-right mode in cast mode.
If you set left-right mode in LG Musicflow App, speaker keep the status in cast mode
even though you can change the setup after stopping cast by changed UX.

2. Link with google home device (there is remote playback functionality in google home device)
If you have google home device, you can control LG Musicflow system by google assistance of google home device remotely.
(Google home device supports english only and It is possible to have limitation by region or country)
For detailed information, we would like you to refer to "madeby.google.com"

3. The name "Google cast" has been changed to "Chromecast built in". So, You can find that some words have changed to "Chromecast built-in"

In addition, We also improved some functionality.

1. Google cast operation comes faster than before by optimization.
2. We also improved the stability of mesh network.

Thank you for your patience and we hope you can enjoy LG Musicflow products more usefully.

Yes, able to assign L/R channel to the speakers on both MusicFlow Android app and on PC app, for music streamed by Google/Chromecast. Great work!

Re: Release Note of New Update

Developer J, nice to see you back. Please can you explain the changes to the Music Server/Library functions. I used to sync the music from my NAS so I could browse it in the same way as the music on my phone (with images etc). Now I just see the folders and the sync function has gone.

As far as I am concerned I used to be able to link speakers playing over WiFi using the chain symbol in 'Connected Speakers' this doesn't work anymore - no sound is played on anything. Using Chromecast add lots of steps and clicks to what used to be a simple process. It had it's flaws but all this Chromecast seems to add very little value unless you are using it for other things (I am not). Are you going to drop the original app now?

Please can you publish the development 'road map' for the app and speakers so that we know what's coming up (if anything) and we can make informed decisions about selling it all or hoping that eventually it's going to be the system that we expected when we bought it!

Thanks

Just upgraded Soundbar, H7 and H4. Now listening to Stairway to Heaven in glorious multi-room along with Google Home in a single Group!

I loved our Music flow hardware prior and was previously a little disappointed when it seemed like we wouldn't be able to participate in Google multi-room or use Voice to control.

Kudos... This one simple update truly made the wife and I's week!!!
