We’re releasing a new update to the Ather App (5.5.1) on Android and iOS. The updates have been pushed to the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store, and should be available to update in a few hours.
This release carries three big updates!
SmartEco has been on Ather Labs for a while now, and we’re now ready to release this for all Ather 450X and Plus. This is the first feature to graduate out of Ather Labs
You can find SmartEco on your dashboard under settings, and enable it if you want to use it.
Trip Planner adds round trip functionality! Now plan your trip back home as well and let Trip Planner recommend grid points en-route if needed. This feature is only available in certain cities with sufficient number of Grid points. Trip planner is available under Ather Labs, so head over to the Ather App to try it out now!
Grid point Status
One of the most requested features, you can now see more information about Ather Grid points. We’ve added 3 new statuses for Grid points, which means you can tell if a Grid point is available, in-use, outside working hours, or down for maintenance on the Ather App.
Finally something useful
Still lacking colours, yellow for being used and red for Maintainance, grey for outside working hours. it will be useful as you are confused with all grey symbols with different icons
Hey Abhishek how does grid status work?
Does it takes data from google map about closing time of that place and changes the icon.
In this screenshot “The chocolate room” and “Sangeetha mobiles” is closed along with the grid. But the charger is on road on footpath and not behind any locked gate.
Is the charger turned off by restaurant/store folks or here wrong information is being showed because of data from google maps?
With added status, so many grids showing under maintenance. Either there seems to be communication issues between the app and the grids or surely there are many not functioning. Shows how serious Ather is with their fast chargers. I hope Ather doesn’t loose its interest in FCs.
