We would like to inform you that an update of Karotz’ operating system is now available. It fixes the sound issue – detected since the last update – that causes Karotz to remain silent once Karotz wakes up from a scheduled sleep time.
It also proposes a new text-to-speech voice: a female voice. Please, do not hesitate to let us know your comments about it.
This update will be installed automatically next time your Karotz goes to sleep or wakes up if any sleep and wake up times have been set.
You can also install it manually: you only need to switch Karotz off and then just switch your Karotz back on.
It will take about 10 minutes to download and install this operating system update. The light should then flash orange. When the light flashes green, your Karotz is fully functional again.
If your Karotz wakes up after a sleeping time, the smart rabbit will be functional only after a few minutes, so be careful if you usually use applications as soon as it wakes up.
We deeply apologize for all the inconvenience caused by the previous update, and we hope you’ll enjoy this one.
