    2) Try connecting to your Hexagons using the last stable version of the app (v0.8.6). Older versions don't support the Hexagons, but they will still connect to them because they work the same way as the Aurora. If you can connect using v0.8.6 then there is probably a bug in v0.9.0.

    Hi everyone, it's been over a year since the last update, so I just wanted to make a quick post to let you know that I finally added Hexagons support to Nanoleaf for Desktop. I also significantly improved the group control feature, added a new spotify visualizer effect, reworked one of the old spotify visualizer effects, and improved a few other things. You can download the update and see the entire changelog here.
