Skip on Over to the Latest Pebble Firmware + iOS App (Release Notes)

Howdy, Pebblers!

The Team is happy to report two over-the-air updates we made available today: a Pebble firmware (v2.3) update for all Pebblers and an update to the Pebble iOS app (v.2.2.2) for those rocking Apple devices.

Aside from improved Bluetooth LE connectivity and the usual slate of stability improvements, the new firmware also adds notification skipping with a double-click.

This new feature lets you quickly jump to the next notification if the current one you’re viewing requires scrolling to see all the content. As before, if the notification you’re viewing is short and displays entirely on your Pebble, a single click is all it takes to go to the next one. To try out notification skipping for yourself:

  1. Update your Pebble to Firmware 2.3.
  2. Go to the Notifications app on your Pebble.
  3. Select a notification from your History, and click away!

The latest Pebble iOS App (v2.2.2) is a minor update, enabling more JavaScript apps to be available in the Pebble appstore. Pebble apps included in this latest bundle will be fully downloadable, and no longer say “Coming Soon” for iOS Pebblers.

Turn It Up for the New Pebble Firmware + iOS App Updates (Release Notes)

UPDATE: Post has been revised to clarify new capabilities introduced in the Pebble iOS App, v 2.2 and adds notes for what’s new in v 2.2.1.

Team Pebble is excited to debut two new features that give you deeper control over your Pebble’s App Menu and Music controls.

With the latest version (v2.2) of the Pebble Firmware released today, Pebblers can now take the items in the Launcher Menu and re-order them as they see fit.

Simply press and hold the Select button while in the Launcher to begin sorting a menu item. Once it starts shaking, you can move it up and down the list as you like!

Today’s firmware update also gives Pebblers new control over their music. You can finally control the volume! It’s been a long time since we first demoed volume control in the Pebble Music app back in the day (our iOS Engineer, Martijn, looks so young!), so we’re really glad to be bringing this feature onboard.

For iOS Pebblers, getting Volume Control to work also requires updating to the latest Pebble iOS App, released last week. As of this writing, the Pebble Firmware update has only just been made public. It may take time for what’s new to appear for you.

  1. To update your Pebble firmware, open your current Pebble smartphone app.
  2. To update your Pebble iOS app, visit the iTunes app store.

We hope you enjoy what’s new. Please keep us posted on Twitter, Facebook, or contact us directly about what you’d like to see next!
