Stremio Tech Update is a new column where we will be publishing what’s been improved in our apps so that you never miss an upgrade. Besides, we’ll also be sharing news from the kitchen, i.e. the Stremio offices & team.

What’s new at the office
– We are conducting a user satisfaction survey to find out how we can improve Stremio. It only has a few questions, so less than a minute to fill out, and you get a chance to win a $100 Amazon gift card. Take the survey here.
– Our office manager took a few days off; we were a bit terrified at first but in the end nobody starved or died of helplessness. We were very proud.
– There was a weird beeping sound at the office that we couldn’t identify. Just as we thought we were victims of a collective sound hallucination, we found the culprit: a Nokia 3310 (2017) phone with a dying battery. Why we have such a phone at the office is an entirely different story…
– We’ll be going to the Soft Unit Conference in Sofia, Bulgaria at the end of this month. Three of our team members will be speakers at the event, and we will also have a stand. If you are at the conference, give us a shout!
