Multi-Bot Update & Renaming Using the Evo App for Android Users

Multi-Bot Update & Renaming Using the Evo App for Android

Are you an Android user and the proud owner of an Evo Classroom Kit or multiple Evo bots? If so, you’ve come to the right place. 

Below are the steps for updating your Evos using the Evo App on an Android device*. 

*Android Versions: Please note the Evo App supports Android 11 – API level 30 and up. 

If you’re looking to update just one Evo, learn how using Python Beta or Ozobot Blockly.

Multi-Bot Update Instructions

Connect to power and turn on Evo bots. 

Please note: Bots must be plugged into a power source to complete the updates. You can update up to 36 bots at a time. 

LEDs should be rolling yellow, light green, or green. If lights are orange or red, keep them in the charger until levels turn yellow or green, indicating sufficient battery levels for updating. 

Open the Evo App on your Android smartphone or tablet and click the “Explore” tab. It’s a good idea to also connect your device to a power source for the update.

Scroll down and select “Teacher Tools: Multi-bot Update,” then select “Continue.” 

The App will scan nearby Evos and begin initiating the update process. 

For reference, each bot may take up to six minutes to update, meaning: 

  • A 12-bot Classroom Kit may take up to 1 hour and 14 minutes to complete. 
  • An 18-bot Classroom Kit may take up to 2 hours and 6 minutes to complete. 

Once complete, the Evos will reflect their status, and the App will provide you with a post-update summary. 

Renaming Your Evos

To rename your Evo bots, open the Evo App on your Android device, then navigate to the “Explore” tab.

Scroll down and select, “Teacher Tools: Mutli-bot Rename.”

A list of your Evo bots will display. 

To rename, identify the color next to the Evo with the matching flashing light on your bot.
