Roon 1.5 (build 354) – Now with Displays and Real Time Lyrics


Since our Chromecast release a few months ago, we’ve been asked over and over whether we’d it would be possible for Chromecast devices to show cover art and artist photos for the music that’s playing via otherdevices, like Roon Ready devices, Sonos, Airplay and more.


As of Build 354, that’s now possible. Any Chromecast device on your network can now be used as a “Display” for any Roon zone.

Real Time Lyrics

Roon has lyrics for millions of tracks, and for many of these tracks we also have “timing” information, that let us scroll lyrics as you listen!


Note that not all tracks with lyrics will work with Real Time Lyrics. For content in your library, you’ll see a small icon when browsing.

For the entire list of changes, check out their changelog here.


Jay Luong

Mr. Audio Bacon himself. An open-minded electrical engineer and software developer by trade. I have an obsession with the enjoyment of all things media - specifically in the realm of music and film. So much heart and soul (and money) go into the creation of this artistry. My aim is to find out which products get me closer to what the musicians and directors intended.
