Re: Virgin media connect app - Can't enable wifi hotspots

Are the Forum team deliberately trying to annoy the community on this topic? You should be personally and professionally embarrassed by these limp and content-free answers. What's the problem? Is there an available solution or simply none for the foreseeable future? When's it going to be fixed? If VM has decided not to support Android, then tell us. We deserve some honesty after being fobbed off on this topic for many many months.

Re: Virgin media connect app - Can't enable wifi hotspots

Completely agree. Virgin are now deciding not to support nearly a third of all Android phones, and this number is going to keep rising.

All the while everywhere but here they are pretending there's no problems with the app at all...

Re: Virgin media connect app - Can't enable wifi hotspots

I have to agree with dbrjrievcdhdkeb - you really need to supply some meaningful information not just the standard "our dev team are aware of the issue". They've been aware of this for over 8 months and we've now moved from Android 11 to 12.

Re: Virgin media connect app - Can't enable wifi hotspots

My understanding is it's no longer possible for an app to install WiFi profiles on Android 11/12. That's why other providers are now telling Android users how to manually connect to the networks. (Such as: Got an Android 11? You'll need to configure your WiFi settings manually. Here's how)

Of course VM should also be doing that, not pretending they're trying to fix something that can't be fixed.

Re: Virgin media connect app - Can't enable wifi hotspots

This is a screen shot of a question on a VM survey that was just sent to me. This is insulting. What the #### is VM playing at??

Re: Virgin media connect app - Can't enable wifi hotspots

Another 3 months have passed, and we are still having to chase this up. Is there really still no update on this?

Re: Virgin media connect app - Can't enable wifi hotspots

At present, devices running Android 11 and 12 aren't able to use the Connect App's out of home Wi-Fi service (or hotspots) the development team are aware of this and working on a fix for this in a future update.

Re: Virgin media connect app - Can't enable wifi hotspots

This was the same information that was said over 7 months ago. Has there seriously been no change from the development team in over 7 months?
You are now deciding not to support over 56% of Android phones in the UK, without saying so on any official marketing material. Surely at this point this is false advertising?
