    Roon was fabulous until version 1.8 came out. Now everything is buggy. I just want to listen to my music and the remote hangs. I have to force quit the remote several times before it does anything (this is a regular problem from several devices, not intermittent)... and when I'm unlucky, there are other random problems that require me to reboot the core or deauthorize the core to get things working again. The new features are not worth the hassle...

    access I found Roon to be useful but not worth the asking subscription price in comparison to other music Services. Having a reliant on a room server is a pain, you could think they should be able to do SaaS so you can still use Roon mobile, similar to Tidal integration with Plex. I've decided for now to just stick with Tidal and my other music Services.

    control Hit and miss on Android. Seems to work fine on my Galaxy tab lite, but crashes on my Huawei mate 20 pro. It's very frustrating to deal with all the force stopping of the app when it freezes. Sometimes it also does not connect to the core. Realy needs a fix. Otherwise it's a really great concept and delivery.

  4. Steve Pike-avatar

    streaming Liking the new look but there are issues - the app freeze on locking the phone seems now to be fixed but there is a new one: clicking on the speaker at bottom right and then selecting DSP eventually gives "no zone selected" even though I am clearly using a zone; switching zones does not resolve the error, I have to kill and restart the app.

  5. Boo Radley-avatar

    vs roon essentials Full of bugs. Keep having to relaunch 4 or 5 times before it actually loads. Navigation is terrible (trying to navigate back doesn't take you back but to somewhere else). Can't add music to my Tidal playlists. For such premium content / app. This really shouldn't be happening.

    apk Astonishingly excellent product. From installing the core on a spare pc to installing this remote app on three tablets and two phones and playing music, took about 15 minutes. If you have qbuz or tidal accounts, this is essential stuff, and all your music from all sources is presented in various ways that make exploring music and information and discovering connected and related artists a pleasure. Every button and every feature is simply done better than any rival product, everything just works

    Roon remote is only a part of the roon system. I didn't have any problems with the android app or the iphone app. I think the roon system is really interesting. The discovery ai is amazing, the interface is minimalist with nice typography, the software options are vast and open, i.e. windows, mac, linux.. Also they have incredible customer service. I wanted to use qobuz and have access to good radio stations, but there are are many other options. If interested I recommend trying it out, and do some research online from your favorite sources. Darko Audio has some excellent information about roon.

    Roon on the PC is fantastic, especially when paired with a Dragonfly Cobalt DAC. The Android app needs work though, especially in terms of stability. My biggest gripe about Roon is the metadata. Plex runs circles around Roon at being able to pull the correct metadata. Example; My music library in Plex contains artist photos for all but maybe 2. Roon missed about 200. That's bad. Also, if I throw 100 albums at Plex, it'll find the correct metadata for 99. Roon would pull maybe 75. Tedious to fix.

    Cannot find the core. Android app can't find the roon core on my local network though ios and desktop apps work perfectly. This has been an issue for a while now. The team reaponsible for Android needs to look into this asap. I don't understand how this is not a priority since Android is the mobile market leader. Edit: as of febr 2021 the issue is fixed.

    I'm sad to say but my honeymoon period with roon appears to be over the concept is great and very close to my old go to music server squeezebox but I shelved that system thinking that if I paid for something more current I'd get better quality and more reliable software. Up until recently things were but for some reason and nothing has changed my android device's that control the server are failing to connect continually going from connect to error. Hopefully this can be resolved.

    I've been a Roon user for a few years. I'm not the most computer savvy, but I managed to get everything running optimally. The latest 1.8 update is excellent. This service just keeps getting better and better. If you're serious about music, it's a must!

  17. Evans-avatar



    Doing a 14 days trail, i am good with technology but this app and the core is just impossible to work with..followed all recommended settings (list is endless to get it work) and still doesn't work, 3 open tickets at support no answer...for 4 days.. spend your money elsewhere is my recommendation.

    Downloaded the free trial today with the full intention of signing up as i have used Roon in the past. I had to update to the latest 1.8 version Where do I begin??? It keeps disconnecting from Tidal. Doesnt save my library across and when I try to add via the Roon app it says it has added but it doesn't appear. I logged out and back in and it doesn't play at all. So glad I had the free trial. Narrow escape judging by all the moans online. Has the new version even been tested with Android??

    This app brings my music collection alive The new 1.8 version is a huge improvement on an already great experience. My CD catalog and streaming content come together in an easily discoverable UI. Coming from the software world , I appreciate a well done UX. And it is reliable. Well done Roon team

    Roon remote was fine until the v1.8 patch, then it started to freeze constantly, refuse to start 2 times out of 3. Thought the 24th Feb patch would improve the remote, nope just made it worse. Now I just use my TV to control Roon.

    The great new design of this version of the Android app and underlying Roon core program (version 1.8) makes Roon even better than it was. For those who enjoy music discovery, there is nothing that beats Roon.

  22. Matthew Carothers-avatar

    Matthew Carothers


    Roon is an excellent home streaming platform for lossless music. My only critiques of the Android app are a lack of tray/lockscreen controls when controlling other zones, and scrolling always feels a little heavy.

    I absolutely love Roon and enjoy the decentralized aspect of music storage and playback. I do not like the Android app at all though. Why oh why can't it behave like other music players or remotes for that matter. Take Plex - the nearest thing to competition Roon has. When I use it as a remote to play music, it stays in the pull down shade, volume works as expected. Not so much with Roon. And don't get me started on Plex being able to allow music over the net ( ie Android auto)...

  48. Kai Chong Wong-avatar

    Kai Chong Wong


    Roon is fantastic as a music app just like Spotify. However, it does not allow native playback resolution like UAPP and is stuck at 48KHz only. I wonder if it's different now that they've released Roon 1.8, it'll be much appreciated and a reason for me to go back to using it.

  49. Christopher Rodziczak-avatar

    Christopher Rodziczak


    never can find the core. iOS app has no problems finding it. Don't know whether this problem is the network stack code in Android or if there's a workaround that Roon could implement but regardless, it makes the Room Android app totally worthless.

  50. Ed Ward-avatar

    Ed Ward


    Not stable with all Android devices, known connectivity problems. Users have come forward with some makeshift solutions. No fixes from the Roon team. Roon is a 'Apple-centric' product, this means development on Android and Linux is vertually non-existant and a very low priority.

  51. Ted Burns-avatar

    Ted Burns


    This app has real issues on my Android phone. As many others have pointed out it has difficulty finding the core and every time my phone goes to sleep it needs to find the core again. And it is slow doing so. Plus it drains the battery really fast when your are searching. Roon is great but this is the biggest negative to the application. And the app itself feels a bit clunky somehow. Of course that is lots of functionality to get on a phone. And it does not run on Chrome OS. Maybe it works better on Apple devices but really who wants to pay for apple devices.

  52. Tomi Nihtilä-avatar

    Tomi Nihtilä


    Useless. Most times cannot find Core although my PCs find without issues. Or if it finds, then after exiting the app or phone goes to sleep, and it cannot find the Core anymore (why does it even need to find it again after sleep?). Troubleshooting is useless. You must fix these for such an expensive subscription! I see these have been going for years so feel I want my money back. I dont have any extra IT protection apps, just stock Android on Pixel.

  53. Jeff D-avatar

    Absolutely love Roon!. The app itself is great, love the photos, the literature, and the improvements on the audio. The audio quality is what I came for and stayed for the service. Only issue, as I wait to reinstall roon on my phone, for whatever reason I can't connect this phone to roon anymore. I just tried with my old phone (Galaxy s9) and it connected no problem. But this phone (Galaxy s20) for whatever reason stopped working as the remote. Other then that, Absolutely love Roon.

    I experienced the following 2 unacceptable issues on both oneplus 7 pro and samsung galaxy tab s7+: 1. Cannot find roon core - always need to scan IP address manually; 2. If I play music through roon to my Android device, there is always SRC with DragonFly Cobalt. UAPP can clearly do bitperfect playback on Android devices, but roon cannot. The iOS version of roon remote doesn't have these issues. Why roon labs couldn't make the experience consistent?

    This app struggles to connect my Roon core most of the time. For a paid/premium subscription platform I find it unacceptable for such a shoddy Android app. It doesn't work.

  57. Chuck Hawks-avatar

    Some hiccups with original experience but I rode them out and ultimately purchased the service. Roon Core is a Win10 PC w/64G of RAM and a Mobo/proc combo that's just as much of overkill. This is a dedicated PC that does Roon only. Roon crashes occasionally and sometimes takes windows with it. Often enough to take 1-1.5 stars away from rating. Limited to 96k on MQA files (single unfold only) and higher bitrate content is not easily found or discernable without digging into content description.

  58. Fernando Macedo-avatar

    Fernando Macedo


    Damn, so much negativity! Did no one remember to test Roon on another tablet or cellphone before criticizing the App so severely? Come on guys, it may just be a problem on your phones or tablets. It can't be that hard. Here's working on an old Samsung Tablet S2 from 2015. When you overcome the tantrums, try Roon remotely or, if you have to, directly at the core. You will quickly forget everything you went through to get here. And the trip starts to be worth it. No + characters avbl 2 fnsh post

    It does the job, but it certainly lacks features. There are no playback controls on lock screen/notifications. I can't like songs nor rate albums from the app. DSP filters can't be edited, just enabled/disabled or reordered. Song-synced lyrics are not displayed as they are in Windows client or on web display.

    This app is exceptional 👌 Had a few teething problems installing it which essentially was due to my firewall preventing the app from connecting to roon core. The app is incredibly intelligent and does far more than I could have wished for. Well done Roon.

    I would rate as 2.5 out of 5 if I could since that's the same ratio as the number of times that my phone can't find the core. Just as infuriating is hanging while actively searching or opening a recording.

    Old Smelly Sock


    Awful in a word. Font sizes ridiculously small, so difficult to read easily, harder to navigate. Roon recently started to stutter when using my LG V30 as a background music player, now it stutters all the time when on it or in background. Search function doesn't work if Roon is displayed full screen without the phones navigation bars present top and bottom. Sadly it seems Roon has dropped the ball, especially for Android users. They can't seem to get the basics right. My subscription won't be getting renewed for a third year, Roon remote is a pain to use. Totally frustrated.

    Roon itself is ok but this app is useless on Samsung Note9 as the keyboard won't display so you are unable to search or name anything. It works fine on the older samsung s7. It would also be great if you could move or copy a playlist from one profile to another person's. Also would be handy if you had the option to delete all duplicates in one click instead of one at a time. Would also like to see access to a wider range of music sources as Tidal is very limited. Definitely has room for improvement.

  69. Peter Magulas-avatar

    Peter Magulas


    A lovely looking app for a fantastic system, however.... The android version needs a serious workover, I can't search for music in the app because the keyboard just disappeares as soon as you hit any typeable area and that makes the remote part properly useless! It does crash very often if I screen lock the phone and sometimes if I'm in a playlist and want to play a song, it plays the song above, that's super annoying! I have faith that Roon can get this fixed, it's a great system that deserves something that just works (at least for the price you are paying for the product it self) .... Get right Roon, I believe in you!

  70. Richard Newberry-avatar

    Richard Newberry


    Roon itself is fine but the Android phone app interface is pretty poor. Still no fast scrolling and no notification controls make using this a tedious experience if you have a large music collection. There really is no excuse for this in an environment that charges $100+ per year. Please fix the fundamentals so that your customers can use the system effectively without having to buy a tablet for every room. update: Now 1 star as after 3 updates it still has no scroll bars and it still crashes 🤬

  71. Oleg Solomonik-avatar

    Oleg Solomonik


    It is great app which allows you to play your music from your sofa but unfortunately for a good while i can't you search because after you tap the screen so you can start typing what you are looking for the keyboard appears for a fraction of a second and then disappears so you can't type. This is on Galaxy S9+ running Oreo 8.0.0 regardless which keyboard app you try to use, i have tried 4 different ones with the same result. Update : app doesn't support full screen mode, with it off keyboard is accessible

  72. Mark C-avatar

    Roon is a fine music player but as mentioned by others the type is so small on android it is hard to read and typing in text or editing a search in the text field is horribly difficult and needs fixing other than that with a tablet or computer it works fine. One other thing that is a bit annoying is that when I go back to roon to change selection it always going through the seeking the hub process and takes quite some time. It shouldn't have to take this long just to change a song when it is already running on my stereo system. This is of course the android app but the apple tablet app has the same delay

    Complete game changer for me. ROON, although expensive, ties all of your music content into one accessible and easy to use app. Using my Innuos Mini Mk3 as a ROON core allows to access my stored music on its internal hard drive awsel as any other hard drive or USB stick I plug into it. ROON automatically sorts through my music, catalogues it and updates the cover art aswel as provide additional artist info etc etc. ROON also discovers any other device on the network and assimilates that too.

    Works OK besides a few annoying issues. Firstly the 'Playing XX Tracks' stays on far too long and right on top of the track time line,a pain when you want to skip to part of a track. Using Google Home Hub as a display the lyrics won't stay on for more than 2 minutes before Google hub goes to screensaver mode then won't come back on. Can't select different DSP filters from the app. Apart from all that it's not bad :-)

    I've run it on 14 day trial. Frequent issues with connecting from mobile phone, to the Roon core while other computers don't have the issue. Scrolling is sluggish and does not allow to choose by alphabet as other have mentioned. Not recommended if you wanna use it with Android devices. Pricing is to steep and yearly billing is a commitment.

  78. Zac-avatar



    Roon remote no longer works on my android phone after update. EDIT: Works well again.

    It is working 100 % ! Speccialy very usefull for controling few devices on home network.In my case 4 Chromecast Audio devices (separate and grouped in 2 different home groups) Switching betwen them it's smooth trouble free.Before I tried Foobar 2000 plus Buble UpnP and Audio Cast and also Foobar 2000 and Desktop Audio Streamer.Foobar is great if you are willing to learn how to configure that fantastic player. Long story short : Roon is worth of every penny and I will cry & pay for it ! ☺

    Started with the 14 day trial and the main problem is the streaming. Using it on my PC, connected very quickly with my B&W Formation Wedge. The same with the app on my Samsung Galaxy S10+ and Samsung Galaxy S5e tab. But streaming is a catastrophe. Connected with Tidal & Qobuz. Tried many settings and nothing was proper working. My internet at home is perfect. My target was if it works I will pay the high price for a year. But as it looks like it stays with the 2 weeks trial....shame.

    Currently won't find my roon core device after updating to the version that doesn't crash on start for Android 10. (Pixel 3xl, Android 10, roon remote 1.6 build 433). breaks the entire use case of roon for me until this is fixed. Server is running and I'm able to connect from my MacBook. Even uninstalled/reinstalled to no avail. Edit. Needed to manually add the core via ip address

  82. SWL3600-avatar



    The main reason I installed this app was to have a remote to control Tidal. I had to uninstall it less than an hour later. The font is WAY TOO SMALL. I couldn't get my nav bar to change from the BRIGHT WHITE. I almost injured myself with this app LOL. Tidal and Spotify's android apps are perfect. Make this one the same and I'll be back.

    The service is incredible. The app for Android on an S9+ is garbage. It crashes regularly and is slow compared to the iPad. For the cost of their service and the complexity of Roon itself I would expect their app to work better. When it works the UI is fantastic.

    Fine if you know where you can find the music you want, but search doesn't work as you can't type into the search bar. Generally like Roon for use around the home but the Android app is thumbs down because of the search fault.

    The roon app for Android is finally usable for me. Every once in a while I trial roon again to see if the Android app has been improved, and I'm pleasantly surprised that scrolling doesn't feel like complete trash. As an Android user the only thing stopping me from subscribing has been the app so... Thanks roon devs, won't cancelling the sub this trial.

    Wasn't clear I needed a PC to set up Roon core first. Not the sickest app I've used but early days yet with 60 day trial.

    Three stars because it works fine on my phone but is nearly useless on my tablet, samsung sm-t590, it almost never finds the core. My phone finds it every time, same network, its not a network issue, this is something inside of roon remote. Rather sucks since I paid for a lifetime subscription.

    It's taken a couple of years for me to fully appreciate Roon. Loses 1 star for the lack of a notification area widget that would allow quick track changes, like pretty much every other music player app.

    Can't find the core. Best networking practices have been followed. Works fine on my Apple devices. Must be something with Android 10. Even before Android 10 this app lost connection constantly. This does not make my wife a happy person.

    I am on a free trial through Denon right now. Honestly, I have no idea why someone would pay for this service. I cannot get my phone to connect as a remote. It constantly says connection failed. Also, it is limited in the services it connects to (Tidal, saved files). Finally, if it works via Denon receivers, you would think it would also link to my HEOS speakers and amps. Sadly it doesn't recognize any of them.

    Roon would consider my 1500 album collection small... Try scrolling my artist or album via without fast scrolling or a scroll bar.... Takes forever to get to the bottom. This is a deal breaker. Please integrate, surely it can't be difficult. Not buying the service because of this solely

    It's impossible to accurately value the joy I have with the Roon experience! Turns my music listening into a voyage with new and familiar landscapes that mostly leave me feeling homely and peaceful. The android app is a great part of that peaceful experience

    I'm pretty disappointed with the fact that there has been a known issue with Android devices for multiple years that has not been addressed that makes music unlistenable if you switch to another app or turn off the screen.

    Doesnt work on my Cayin N6ii- the app loads up but I can't interact with it as the interface is completely frozen... Will update my rating as soon as this gets fixed. EDIT: it works again! EDIT 2: any plans to bypass Android's default settings limiting everything to 44.1K for compatible devices?

    Last update broke this app for me. Upon app launch it immediately crashes when it finds my core. Please fix this, as the awesome app is now completely useless! Now not even worth one star, it used to be 5...

    After latest update app is crashing on android. Otherwise the app was working great so far. Considering that the whole roon experience is paid (not cheaply), the mobile apps should be better tested after udpates.

    Like this app. Installed on my Galaxy S10E and works great. Also have Roon Remote on my iPad and I like the Android version better. I have my phone with me always so it's very easy to browse and control my music collection.

    Fonts are very small on a Gallaxy Note 10+ to a point they tend to be really un-readable! Please fix this as soon as possible or at least provide a setting with which the user will be able to adjust them according to their preference and capacity.

    Alarming inability to find core. I mean, what's the point of a remote app that can't do the most fundamental requirement to actually work?

    Here is the solution for Windows and roon core. You need to add roon services/app to Firewall ( users-user-appdata-roon) folder is hidden so make sure to can see hidden folders. Then add all services in roon folder to Firewall rules and tick public and private, there is 2 or 3 programs there with exe extension. Save and enjoy :)

    Inexcusable that this has no fast scroll/alphabet strip. It takes about 40 swipes and 30-60 seconds to browse through my library. Every other music player has this functionality but RoonLabs seems to ignore this.

    Roon is a total waste of money. Is is pathetically slow, freezes constantly and takes forever to update the library. There are plenty of free services that are far more reliable. Spending $700 on roon is the dumbest thing you can do.

    Looking for a Roon Core? People still design apps with no thought on user experience. The app says "make sure Roon Core is connected"... I have no idea what a Room Core is... I bought a B&W speaker, so I guess the core is there? Then it says "make sure the core is ready to accept remote connections"... What does that mean? I don't see that in the B&W setup...
