Hi Smart Display Owners,
I have the pleasure of announcing another set of features coming to your display starting today.
Please note that the release is always trickled, however this time it will be faster than with the previous R3 update.
Once you have the update you will see the firmware version: 188.8.131.52+prod
Here is a list of features coming with this update:

Thanks for the update - I received it this morning and it certainly seems to be working quite nicely.
I do have one request though - can we please be allowed to turn off the Dark Screen setting?
What I want is for the Ambient Screen setting to remain (dimming in response to the auto brightness setting if that's how I've set it), but not remove my pictures from the screen and replace them with just the clock. This would require an additional option in the settings within the Home app (Switch to Dark Screen when ambient lighting drops below threshold). Also would be nice to be able to specify the threshold too.

Thanks very much for posting this.
A) I actually liked the smaller font for the dimmed clock display because it was darker, but I understand why many people prefer the larger one. An option to use the original dimmed clock display would stiil be nice!
B) I've read that there will be broader support for Portrait mode; I'd love to reduce the footprint of the device. Any idea when this functionality will be released?

I'm disappointed with this also. No update here either. Why would they announce this the day before a holliday? I'm puzzled about "

The update is currently at 50% and should finish rolling out this week.
If you look at my original post I clearly mentioned the update would not be for all users at once. Please be patient as this is done in phases in order to prevent any issues that would impact the whole user base.
