Update – October 13, 2020
To simplify the beta testing process, we've published the Orba app for Android to the Google Play store. There's no longer any need to fill out the survey. You can simply access the app here.
The Orba app for Android is currently available for beta testing. If you’re interested in joining this private beta, we’d love to have you check it out. Follow this link to request access and become part of the early app experience!
We will add all of the new registrations to the program every Monday afternoon.
For everyone else, we will have the Orba app published on the Google Play Store just shortly down the road.
There has been some great interest (as well as early feedback) in the Orba Android beta. It's a manual process of adding new email addresses to the Google Play backend, so we've begun doing this on a weekly cadence. Every Monday afternoon we will be adding the new registrations to the program. So if you apply on a Friday, you'll just wait a handful of days until you're given access.
The Bluetooth connection is unstable, disconnecting randomly. That's probably where the other problems come from, you can't change the presents, save the song, etc. You can't use the app this way.
For those asking about Bluetooth connectivity on Android, we're working out the kinks in this process and look forward to releasing the official Android app as soon as we can. The app is currently still in the beta phase but will be fully functional once beta-testing is complete.

installed app on android tablet; ok. but bluetooth (connection to orba) is not stable.
Latest Android app does not even show a menu (when touching the black Orba next to the Artiphon A) to connect via bluetooth ... So no connexion, so the app is useless :-(
I don't understand why artiphon starts with software that works badly and then replaces it with software that doesn't work at all.
Just downloaded Android app and tried connecting Orba to bluetooth on my Pixel 2. No go. Keeps failing. Tried connecting Orba to Windows 10 device and it keeps failing. Advice?
We had a group of early beta test sign ups that received Android version 0.14.22. This version is intended to test a USB cable connection. 0.14.21 is the version that has Bluetooth LE Midi. We are currently trying to enable access for those users.
Good God, guys! The app is still useless? Feeling Unsupported, not such a warm and fuzzy place.
Now I can connect to the app via Bluetooth, but I cannot change presets. It takes like forever to upload one and then nothing changes on Orba.
