Preview Devices or Group Status

Now Twinkly app has a new useful feature: while in the device list, next to your Twinkly Name, you will find a square icon, which filling will represent the status of your device:

  • Green dot next to devices: devices online
  • Grey: your device is off
  • Grey and white striped icon: devices without saved effects
  • Colour: your device is in full-color mode, which means that you chose to apply a single color to your string; the color you see in the square is the one applied to your lights.
  • Playlist icon: when a playlist of effects is activated, your icon will show the playlist symbol
  • Effect preview: the square shows a preview of the effect you chose to apply to your device
  • Twinkly Music: when a musical note symbol appears in your icon, it means that the device is playing a twinkly Music driver, synching to the song or sounds, around you.

This way, you will have all you need to know about your device, at hand in a single screen!
