NowSignage for Screens v2.4.0 Released

9/07/2019 by Matt Ryder


The NowSignage team are very proud to present a new release of our Android app, version 2.4.0, that is now available for all supported devices, on both Google Play and Amazon App Store as well as direct through our Content Delivery Network.

We worked with a few of our customers to implement features that we knew were great additions to the platform, and we're grateful for their feedback and time while developing this update.


Web Animations provided by Visual ID

Visual ID are a digital asset management company, based in Dublin, Ireland. They offer a range of tools for creating and distributing a brand's digital marketing collateral, and are a long-time partner of NowSignage.

NowSignage were approached about a possible integration with their digital asset management platform, and we set about implementing a system to securely download their HTML5-based "Web Animations" and display them as an item within your NowSignage loops.

As of today, this feature is now live for all new and existing customers.

If you want to supercharge your brand and deliver an edge over traditional digital signage staples such as images and video assets, Visual ID and NowSignage are the perfect tools to deliver audience engagement.


The full changelog for this release is as follows:

  • Implemented functionality to display Web Animations provided by Visual ID.

  • Fixed a bug with Android 4.4.4 and video playback with ExoPlayer.

  • Implemented a check for future types of content to prevent a crash on a pre-release asset.

  • Fixed a bug when playing an asset without a preloaded view.

  • Fixed a bug where an announcement could be sent to a screen without having the widget configured.
