Chord Electronics has launched Gofigure, the official configuration App for the Poly network music streamer
Gofigure provides network set-up and simple settings management. It will initially be available for iOS devices with Android to follow and is designed to complement existing third-party control point Apps, such as Glider and 8 Player, commonly used to control music playback through Poly and Mojo.
Gofigure also features a set-up wizard to configure both new and existing Polys to available Wi-Fi networks, enabling the device for music playback. The wizard also facilitates direct Bluetooth set-up and playback and step-by-step configuration using Hotspot Mode. Gofigure’s wizard entirely negates the need for the configuration pin.
It also 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, with all lists visible within the App. Although QuickPlay is not intended to replacethird-party control point Apps, you can access pre-configured playlists.
The App’s main Settings screen offers control over many of Poly’s main configuration options using slider switches and drop-down menus.
Initially available for iOS devices, reflecting the dominant platform among existing Poly customers, the App’s launch follows an intensive six-month development phase, with contributions from beta testers and feedback from Poly customers. An Android version is currently in development.
Gofigure is free and available now for iOS devicesfrom the Apple App store: search ‘Gofigure’.
iOS 11 or higher is recommended for Gofigure. Poly will also require the latest firmware (1.0.26). Full details on how to check the firmware version and update Poly are available here. A downloadable PDF manual for Gofigure is available here
