Android version 1.7.86.21 issues

Like it was introduced in the previous version, the switch ‘TICK’ sound when toggling anything On/Off is still there in this version no matter how the Android settings for sounds are configured, except for MUTE of course. They obviously need to make this ‘TICK’ sound setting internal to the SmartThings app since it doesn’t respect using the Android settings toggle on all of my Samsung Android devices that I have.

The Life page has been tweaked. It is now titled SmartThings Home Life and STHM and Guest Access have been relegated to the More services section lower down the page. So tough luck if you liked them at the top of the page.

The More services section replaces the Recommended for you section. The irritating default recommendations for things like Pet Care and Home Care have been promoted to the top section but at least it now appears you can delete them and your wishes will be respected.

I suspect having the tools like STHM and Guest Access relegated below the lifestyle fluff will go down like a cup of cold sick with this forum’s audience, even if it makes sense in the broader scheme of things.

And I’m seeing a GUI glitch. When I’m in the Device’s Routines page for a device with lots of Routines associated with it, and scroll down and then scroll back up, the GUI is cutting off the first Routine on the list.

The thing I find a little odd is that ‘Touch Sounds’ (or the equivalent) doesn’t enable and disable the sound, but if you are in Do Not Disturb mode ‘Touch Sounds’ will work as an exemption from muting.

Also why just have sound on the Favourites / Dashboard pages but not the Details Pages?

With today’s update, Smart Lock Guest Access showed up in the Life tab.

It is also showing up in the previous version in that irritating ‘Recommended for you’ section.

My Samsung has just updated, so now I know that Smartthings Find also comes under More Services on the Life tab.

I use a custom DTH from groovy for my Heatmiser thermostat, the thermostat is linked to ST through a esp8266 bridge, since the update/backend changes ? the thermostat device page no longer functions properly, the temperature is correct but that is all


Ok, I checked your device and noticed two things :thinking::

  1. Some capabilities like Switch, thermostatFanMode have a null value. This causes the issue of the disconnected cloud icon.
    I already reported this issue as it started to happen in the new version of the app.
  2. I’m not sure if one of the controls missing is one that belongs to the thermostat capability properties but it is already deprecated, so I suggest you use the ones in production

Thank you for looking

The DTH was created by someine else so i am unable to improve or correct anything, i think it is now fair to say the integration is now finished then Nayelyz

Thank you for looking though

I see, well, it is strange that there is no status for others like switch capability for example. As a workaround, you can send commands manually using the API and this might cause a state update.
