CHORD Electronics’ latest firmware update for the 2go brings a range of new features to the streamer/server. The 2go directly connects to both the Hugo 2 DAC/headphone amp and the 2yu network bridge which is coming soon.
“The firmware rollout (v. 1.5.0) introduces new radio-listening features, SD card album playback and improved stability, and follows the release of the latest version of the Gofigure set-up and configuration app companion,” the Chord press release informs us.
“The updates include better radio station and playlist support along with faster access over Wi-Fi. A key upgrade is the new playlist generator feature that allows Gofigure to scan any SD card/s inserted into 2go for music and create playlists for every stored album, giving an easy way to play all stored albums without the need for Wi-Fi or another app.”
Current 2go owners will get the free firmware via an over-the-air (OTA) update from this week, while new 2gos are being shipped globally with the latest updates pre-installed.
With the new firmware, 2go owners should install the latest version of Gofigure, which can be downloaded directly from the Google Play Store and Apple’s App Store. However, Android 10 users should download a specific version of Gofigure from the Chord Electronics website directly – those installing from the Play Store will be redirected back to the Chord download page. The latest version of the app recommends iOS 13 and Android 7 (or higher).
Chord Electronics has created an instructional YouTube video for updating your 2go.
