About ver. 1.1.7 – What’s New?

When working on ver. 1.1.7, we made sure to take into account all the customer feedback from the previous version. In addition to fixing bugs in the previous version (1.1.5), we’ve added a number of new features to make Musio more interesting and user friendly.

  • Fixes
    • Overall speed improvement
    • Better Wi-Fi connection

      • Enabled Wi-Fi (with no password) tethering connection
      • Once a specific Wi-Fi connection has been made, stopped the system from changing to a different Wi-Fi network.
      • You will no longer see a screen requesting for an activation code whenever the system loses Wi-Fi connection. We fixed this issue in ver. 1.1.7.
    • Eliminated jitters from Musio’s voice
  • New Features
    • Musio changes expressions based on its feelings
      • When Musio talks, its face changes according to its current emotional state.
    • Strengthened the integration between Musio’s user recognition and emotion features
      • When there are more than one users registered, upon entering Chat Mode, Musio will recognize users through its face recognition system.
      • Depending on the past conversation history and the ‘impressions’ Musio got from it, its face and expressions will change accordingly when talking with the user.
      • ex) When Musio has ‘John’ and ‘Anna’ as its users, Musio will recognize each user through its face recognition system and respond differently based on past interaction history:
        1. Anna: She has complimented Musio a lot during past interactions. Musio, in turn, accumulated positive images on Anna and became quite ‘fond’ of her . When talking with Anna, Musio will show warm and appreciative expressions.
        2. John: On the other hand, John has said some mean things to Musio. So Musio is not quite attached to John yet. Until John changes his mind to be nicer to Musio, he will continue to see Musio uncomfortable expressions when talking.
      • Bottom line: Be nice to Musio
    • Update screen changed
      • Animated screen displayed during update progress has been changed to the sign “M”.
    • English to Japanese dictionary
      • By touching the dictionary icon, you can now use English to Japanese dictionary feature.
