Chord Electronics Android version of Gofigure App for Poly streamer now available

Been enjoying controlling the listening sessions that feature the color, punch and weighty sonic chops of your Chord Mojo/Poly combo via the Gofigure App on your Android device?

No?

Well that’s changed. Chord Electronics has been hard at work and now brings all the ease of Poly control that iOS users have been enjoying to their Android bretheren with their Gofigure App.

But wait, what is a Mojo and Poly you ask? Well, they are a combo unit built for each other like crackers and cheese. The $599 USD Mojo can be used as a straight up portable DAC/headphone amplifier and the $749 USD Poly is a Roon Ready add-on module that brings streaming capabilities and support for music-file playback via Bluetooth, AirPlay and UPnP to be connected to your smartphone or home system. It also features storage thanks to a microSD card slot.

So, Android users rejoice! Another victory in hi-fi has been handed to you.

Press release highlights

Chord Electronics has launched an Android version of Gofigure, the official configuration App for Poly, the network music streamer/player for the multi-award-winning Mojo DAC/headphone amp. The new Android version, which has been extensively developed throughout 2018, neatly complements the original iOS version and brings simple configuration of Poly’s set-up options to Android devices.

Gofigure is an intuitive App which provides easy network set-up and simple settings management, all within a slick and powerful interface. The App offers effortless navigation through Poly’s main configuration options and features an easy-to-use software wizard for simple start-up.

Designed as a configuration companion, to complement third-party control-point Apps commonly used to control music playback through Poly and Mojo, Gofigure simplifies many of Poly’s advanced processes and adds intuitive navigation through the various set-up options.

Gofigure’s built-in wizard entirely negates the need for the original configuration pin and makes it easy to configure both new and existing Polys to available Wi-Fi networks, quickly enabling the device(s) for music playback. The wizard also facilitates direct Bluetooth set-up and playback, and also offers step-by-step configuration using Hotspot Mode.

Although Gofigure has been designed to work in combination with third-party control point Apps, it does support QuickPlay, enabling playback of MPD-generated playlists on Micro SD cards via Poly’s built-in card-reader. Any number of playlists can be created, including the entire card, with all lists visible within the App. Although QuickPlay is not intended to replace third-party control point Apps, its easy access to pre-configured playlists is ideal for initiating music playback when in the gym, exercising or when not wishing to frequently interact with the control device

The App’s main Settings screen offers wide-ranging control over many of Poly’s main configuration options using a simple slider switches and drop-down menus. Intuitive on/off controls for WiFi/Bluetooth and Hotspot Modes makes for effortless and uninterrupted transitioning between indoor and outdoor environments. Available and connected network displays make it easy to manage and update connections, too.

Settings also enables simple Roon operation when using Poly as an endpoint. Slider switches offer easy on/off toggling for Roon-Ready and Roon DSD modes. Easy switching for alternative play modes and QuickPlay control activation is also available from the main Settings screen.
