Roon’s Latest Update Refreshes TIDAL, Adds Daily Mixes, And More
In the latest update to Roon 1.8 (Build 806), the company states that it has further improved how you search and discover music in Roon.
This lofty claim is backed up with new personalised daily playlists, intelligent search, a totally new TIDAL interface, and several other changes, including support for back / forward gestures on iOS, and a Bootleg section added to “From My Library” on Artist Overview.
Kicking off with Daily Mixes, as the name suggests, TIDAL and Qobuz users will get six new Daily Mixes from Roon, designed to be the catalyst for exploration. Each playlist is themed on an artist from your listening history and includes 25 picks from artists you love and some you have yet to discover.
Searching for tracks, artists, and albums from all sources has generally been the main draw to Roon for many. This release features the first of many planned search evolutions: an improved user interface with predictive auto-complete. Roon now matches people and music across everything - artists, albums, tracks, genres, composers and compositions. Roon says that this will make it even easier and faster to get to the music you love.
Finally, Roon has redesigned its TIDAL page to include many of TIDAL’s latest features and content, including top charts, TIDAL staff picks and latest MQA playlists and more. As well as all of this, TIDAL’s popular “Mixes for you” feature is now available for you to enjoy in Roon!
