Known Issues:


  • When accessing the Language & location page in Settings, it may take a long time for the page to load.


  • Pi-hole users may encounter issues signing in, creating, or recovering accounts upon downloading the 1804 update. This is due to a new configuration file which is downloaded from a URL Pi-hole blocks by default.

Audio Issues

  • We are aware that some Spatial Audio users will experience unexpected game volumes and are working on a fix.
