Woke up in the middle of the night and for some reason I discovered that my Roon app needed updating. Did that, updated the core, then went down to my PC to update the Windows application. Today on Facebook, I see post from Roon that touts the new “Valence” feature, one of those “expert” algorithms that people that don’t love music use to figure out what to play or buy next. The algorithm has been recording over 100,000 Roon users play habits (did I opt in or out?). Okay… that little search icon in the upper right is all I need.
On the upside, all the Google Home minis in the house now show up as available audio devices. That’s a fix, I also think that the playback on Android phones has been improved.
But the big disappointment is that the update did not include the ability to add reviews, bios, notes, links etc. Now having that would make it “expert.”
