Like Yay. Lumiya for Android devices pushed out another update today. On top of the earlier July 2016 updates this September update makes it clear that the developer is on the ball and still supporting our fave Andriod App.Details below:


Lumiya 3.1.2 - support for Google Drive

Published: Wednesday, 19 October 2016

Lumiya 3.1.2 adds an option to automatically store chat and IM history in your Google Drive. 

To activate it, install free Lumiya Cloud Plugin from Google Play and check "Save chat history in Google Drive" in Lumiya's settings under "Chat and messages". When you log in to SL, Lumiya will upload your existing chat history too.


Lumiya 3.1.1 - more bug fixes

Published: Tuesday, 27 September 2016

As usual, after a major Lumiya 3.1 release, there's is a follow-up update to fix the discovered bugs and incompatibilities.

No new features has been added in this update. Most notably, the following issues has been fixed:

  • Screen corruption in 3D view on certain Adreno 305 and 320 GPUs (e.g. Sony Xperia T3);
  • Crash on saving notecard data.

 More updates soon to follow, so stay tuned!


Lumiya 3.1 - it only gets faster

Published: Tuesday, 27 September 2016

Lumiya 3.1 adds support for OpenGL ES 3.0, which allows for major frame rate improvements in 3D mode - especially when rendering mesh bodies, mesh hair, and everything mesh in general, on almost every modern phone or a tablet. It also improves rendering of translucent mesh clothing, now getting much closer to how it should actually look.

This update also adds a few handy features:

  • taking and sharing screenshots;
  • editing avatar profiles;
  • setting home location.

Among other changes, a button to play sound stream has been moved to its proper location - to the action menu on Contacts screen. Of course, this update includes countless bug fixes, most notably:

  • Mesh body HUDs are now working as expected;
  • Kemono avatars are being rendered correctly.

More updates soon to follow, so stay tuned!


Lumiya 3.0.3 - moving HUDs and more fixes

Published: Saturday, 30 July 2016

Lumiya 3.0 only keeps getting better with this third update since its release, now with version 3.0.3 available on Google Play.

It is mostly a bugfix update, but it does include one new feature - ability to move HUDs around the screen, naturally, by dragging them.

And a short list of discovered and fixed issues:

  • Fixed a crash in 3D mode on Intel-based devices;
  • Fixed incorrect screen layout in 3D mode after rotation;
  • "Don't save user name" option now works as it should.


Lumiya 3.0.2 - more bug fixes

Published: Friday, 29 July 2016

Soon after releasing Lumiya 3.0 and 3.0.1 updates in quick succession, update to Lumiya 3.0.2 is available on Google Play.

It is a bugfix-only update. Most important, exporting chat history should now work reliably on every device.

Short list of discovered and fixed issues:

  • Fix for exporting chat history;
  • Fix for blank 3D screen after switching back and forth;
  • Fix for malformed sound stream URLs;
  • Fix for notifications being always enabled.


Lumiya 3.0.1 - bug fixes and the Cam button

Published: Thursday, 28 July 2016

Quick to follow large 3.0 update, there is Lumiya 3.0.1 already on Google Play.

Apart from a few minor bug fixes, there's that old Cam button back because of so many requests. It is not enabled by default, but, for those dearly missing the button, it can be enabled in Settings → 3D. Also, it is now possible to choose what Left and Right arrows do in 3D mode.

Pinch gesture has been somewhat improved to allow for moving the camera sideways too.

Exporting chat history should also work nicely on Marshmallow devices. On first export, Lumiya will ask for permission to access your storage, which is naturally needed to create a text file so that chat history could be actually exported.

Also, Lumiya can now play animations from inventory, and hopefully stop them. To aid with that, there is a "Stop avatar animations" option on 3D screen.

And a short list of changes, as usual:

  • Ability to play animations from inventory;
  • Optional Camera button in 3D view (see Settings → 3D to enable);
  • Exporting chat history now works on Android Marshmallow;
  • Fixed incorrect avatar shape when wearing skeleton deformers.


Lumiya 3.0 - finally there!

Published: Wednesday, 27 July 2016

After a long and protracted development, Lumiya 3.0 is available on Google Play.

It features a new, fresh user interface, completely redesigned and practically rewritten from scratch, with material themes, gestures, sane navigation and better look all around. It even includes pink color theme for those inclined.

Most importantly, Lumiya now keeps the entire chat history on the phone. No more lost messages and trying to remember whether you had "Save chat logs" option enabled. Entire history can be exported to Google Drive, Dropbox or saved anywhere else in a standard Android way.

Lumiya now includes fairly complete group management, with support for group invites, editing group roles and assigning permissions.

In 3D mode, pinch and drag gestures are now used to move the camera around, while buttons are reserved to walking. And, finally, in-world popup menus are now looking and acting like popup menus, and even better, because they can be swiped away to dismiss them. 

The last but not the least, the update includes a lot of bug fixes - in particular, Lumiya should not crash anymore at Nexus 5 and similar devices - and some performance improvements all around. Also, more data gets cached than before, to reduce bandwidth usage and handle poor network conditions better.

To sum it up, there is a short list of changes, which is necessarily incomplete because Lumiya 3.0 is practically a new app and almost everything has been reworked from the ground up:

  • New user interface with material design;
  • New Pink color theme;
  • Avatar pictures in chat and contacts;
  • Group management;
  • Persistent chat history;
  • Improved nagivation in 3D mode, with pinch and drag gestures;
  • Improved interaction with in-world objects;
  • Option to keep Wi-Fi awake while connected;
  • Fixed crashes in 3D mode on certain devices.
