New ChatterOS Update released January 15th. We're very excited for this update because we've improved performance of Chatterbox by over 30%! Among fixes in this update are better speech handling, improved understanding and handling of date and time as well as block improvements. For full change log, please see below.
To download update, you can tell Chatterbox to "Check for updates."
To find out if your Chatterbox auto-updated, press button and ask "What version are you?"
Note: Depending on internet connection, please allow up to 30 minutes for update to finish. After update, you need to use the power switch to turn off and turn on Chatterbox for the latest changes.
