2019.09.24 Release Notes

Greetings, Misty developers! We’re excited to announce the next system update for Misty II robots.

Installing the Update

Misty’s software updates are delivered as over-the-air (“OTA”) updates, and Misty checks for updates each time she boots up. This release will be available to your Misty II within the next 24-48 hours (the precise timing varies by region). If Misty doesn’t automatically download the update the next time she boots up, you can check to see if the update is available via Misty’s Command Center.

Misty reboots once during a system update. All commands except Halt and Stop are disabled while Misty is updating. If Misty starts installing an update while she’s charging, do not disconnect her from her power source until the update is finished and her eyes are fully open.

If you have issues with a system update or need technical assistance for other reasons, for the quickest response you can:

  • Post a message to the Support category here in the Community forums. Mention @support in your post.
  • Contact the Misty support team through the chat embedded in this site, or by emailing help@mistyrobotics.com.

Thanks, as always, for being one of the first developers for Misty II. As software on treads, the Misty platform will improve with regular updates in the weeks, months, and years to come. Your feedback shapes the platform and the future of personal robots, and we can’t wait to hear what you think!
