LEGO Powered UP App Adding New Functions

The LEGO® Powered UP will soon be upgraded to version 3.0 and with it will come some major changes. Firstly it will offer better control over multiple devices as well as also being able to interact with the Technic powered elements. Plus the upgrade will give the apps visuals a tweak. The update should arrive soon, so keep checking your app updates to get the latest version.

What’s new?

  • For those of you that have more than one hub, good news, you are now able to connect, address, code, and control multiple hubs (up to four actually).
  • The app now fully supports the new LEGO TECHNIC hardware. You are now able to connect the new LEGO TECHNIC hub, and use the internal tilt sensor, as well as the new LEGO TECHNIC motors. For the real techy ones, the app can read values from internal sensors (orientation (X, Y, Z), and acceleration (X, Y, Z) of the TECHNIC Medium Hub (Hub128). From the app you can pair motors on port AB, and CD. The app also supports the TECHNIC Large Linear Motor (Motor no. 2) and TECHNIC XL Linear Motor (Motor no. 3). From the app you can regulate power, speed and position of motors.
  • Last but not least, the app has gotten a makeover! We’ve given the interior of the two lobbies a thorough clean-up and made it easier for you to create new projects. We’ve also cleaned up the canvas a bit, and don’t worry, all of your canvas features are still available in the little menu in the bottom right corner.

Feedback wanted

This is just the beginning. With this update comes a promise and commitment to keep improving and listening to your feedback. If it’s not too much to ask, please help us become even better by sharing your ideas for improvements, and your awesome creations with the LEGO Powered Up app.
