Web Portal Client App Home App

August 2022: Robust new features, including improved support for unmanaged apps and captive portal support!

AUTHOR: The ArborXR product team

We've got some fun & exciting updates to share with you!

Improved Support for Unmanaged Apps

Easily add pre-installed or store-downloaded apps (i.e. unmanaged apps) to ArborXR Home, or designate one as the kiosk app, in a self-serve manner.

Captive Portal Support for Pico and VIVE Devices  

As part of ArborXR Home's Wi-Fi settings, if captive portal authentication is required, the device's native browser will automatically launch with the captive portal authentication page loaded. Upon authenticating, users will automatically be directed back to ArborXR's Wi-Fi settings. 

Learn more about captive portal behavior here.

 App & File Install Error Email Notifications

Within Account Settings, there is now the option to opt-in to receiving app and file install error email notifications. This is especially useful for those remotely managing a large deployment of devices where visibility on failed installs is critical so that a reinstall can be attempted.

Prevent Device Factory Reset

Prevent users from factory resetting the device locally via the device's stock settings. This will ensure that only admins will be able to factory reset devices remotely via the ArborXR web portal.

Filter Devices by Firmware Versions

Filter devices in the Devices page by firmware versions in addition to tags, device type, client app versions, ArborXR Home versions, and last seen date range.

Improved Support for VIVE Flow

While the VIVE Flow has been supported by ArborXR since its launch, several adb commands were required to be run as part of the initial device setup process. With this improvement, ArborXR's Device Setup App will automate the running of these adb commands, thereby enabling a one click setup flow. 

Here is what you can look forward to next:
