CHORD ELECTRONICS POLY GOFIGURE APP FOR ANDROID IS HERE

Chord Electronics has launched the Android version of Gofigure, its configuration App for the excellent Poly music streamer.

The moment I've been waiting for has finally arrived. This is the official configuration app for the network music streamer/player dubbed Poly that hands wireless skills to with the award-winning Mojo DAC/headphone amp.

Gofigure is an intuitive app originally released for iOS that provides easy network set-up and simple settings management via a slick interface. Additionally, the app offers effortless navigation through Poly's main configuration options and features an easy-to-use software wizard. 

Designed throughout 2018 to complement third-party control-point apps commonly used to control music playback through Poly and Mojo, Gofigure simplifies many of Poly's advanced processes.

The wizard negates the need for the fiddly configuration pin. Also, configuring new and existing Polys to available Wi-Fi networks becomes much easier, quickly enabling the device(s) for music playback. The wizard also facilitates direct Bluetooth set-up and playback as well as a step-by-step configuration using Hotspot Mode.

Furthermore, the new app supports QuickPlay, enabling playback of MPD-generated playlists on Micro SD cards via Poly's built-in card reader. Any number of playlists can be created, including the entire card. Naturally, all the playlists become visible within the app.

The Settings user interface offers wide-ranging control over many of Poly's main configuration options using simple slider switches and drop-down menus. Intuitive on/off controls for WiFi/Bluetooth and Hotspot Modes makes for effortless and uninterrupted transitioning between indoor and outdoor environments. Available and connected network displays make it easy to manage and update connections, too.

Also, simple Roon operation comes as part of the new package, making Poly a Roon endpoint. Again, slider switches offer easy on/off toggling for Roon-Ready and Roon DSD modes. Easy switching for alternative play modes and QuickPlay control activation is also available from the main Settings screen.

Gofigure is free and available now for both iOS and Android devices.

You will require Android version 7.0 and above, and the latest Poly firmware is always recommended.
