Music control [ELEMNT]

Second generation ELEMNT computers can control native music apps on your phone.  A Music Control Page is added to the end of the page stack when the computer detects a podcast, music, or video playing.  The ELEMNT will not switch to that page automatically.

You can play/pause the audio track, adjust volume, and skip/fast forward/rewind.


  • BOLT v2 or ROAM v2


  • ELEMNT BOLT v2 or ROAM v2 Firmware version: 16764+
  • ELEMNT app version 1.79.1+ (iOS) or (Android)
  • ELEMNT app for Android must be allowed notification access.
  • An active connection between the ELEMNT computer and the ELEMNT app

The feature uses the phone's operating system music service, so the great majority of music/podcasting apps should be supported. Any noted exceptions will be listed below.

  1. Ensure ELEMNT firmware is up to date on version 16764+
  2. Ensure the ELEMNT app is up to date on version 1.79.1+ (iOS) or (Android)
  3. Ensure the ELEMNT is paired / actively connected to the ELEMNT app.
