Feature #455

Improved Android wear support

Added by Nathan about 2 years ago. Updated about 2 years ago.



I recently picked up a Sony smartwatch 3, and have enjoyed being able to control my Kodi box with the watch interface, but there are a couple of things that I feel could be improved.

  • The screen stays on while the app is open. Other apps go to a black/white screen with minimum brightness to conserve battery
  • The notification does not vanish once playback is stopped
  • The remote interface is a little clunky (having to hold the select button down for more options) I wouldn't mind squeezing the back button in a corner, or making the remote buttons span two pages.

Apart from that, I find this app to be by far the best remote app for Kodi, and you should keep up the good work!

Next version will have ambient mode (Your #1)

For #2 I do not control that part so sounds like a Wear bug.

For #3 maybe one day I'll rewrite the wear part, but well wear users are really a low number.

That's good to hear about ambient mode, It'll certainly be helpful

And I can understand your views on #3, thankfully I'm only using the watch as a secondary device when I'm away from the remote anyway, so it's not a huge issue.
