Any status on an update for Android phones?


Loving the “Dark matter” theme.


I hope to get a major Android app+SDKs update out the door in the next 2 months. Apologies for the delay and iOS getting the spotlight for a while.


Will the Android update include a “Device Inspector” like the iOS version? (And any update on the release time?)


We are preparing to release Android app v1.7 which will fix many open issues, it will not include the device inspector feature yet - this will be added in v2.0. SDKs have already been updated.

The option to call function/read variables will soon be added to the web console too.


It’s live already :wink:
