Usability Improvements

Rearrange your favorites via Drag and Drop

Easily rearrange your favorites as often as you want This includes both

  • App (Personal) Favorites and Device (Shared) Favorites: App (Personal) Favorites – These are favorites stored on your personal phone or tablet, available just for you. Do you have your own personal “workout mix”, or are you the only one in your home that enjoys listening to “Avant Jazz”? Then store these as your Personal Favorites and they’re available on your phone/tablet whenever you want to listen.
  • Device (Shared) Favorites – These favorites are stored on your Russound device and are available to anyone in your home, on the Russound app. Do you have a playlist of songs your family likes to listen to during the holidays? Is there one artist in your home that everyone agrees is great? (The Beatles? Taylor Swift?) These are great candidates for Shared Favorites.

Show your rooms in the order you want

Customized Room/Zone Ordering

  • Easily rearrange your list of rooms in the Russound app as often as you want Simply tap the edit button at the top left of the screen to enter the re-ordering mode.
  • Please note that the room ordering is personalized for every device so if you use a phone and a tablet for controlling your system, you can set up the same room order on both or use a different order for each device. Everyone in the home can have their own custom organized room list on their phone/tablets.
