Ouya gets an operating system update

Posted by Alan at 7:38 AM on February 5, 2014

Ouya, the Android gaming console that was once the darling of Kickstarter, has largely sunk into anonymity since its actual launch. However the little device continues to launch new games and update its operating system to improve both performance and user interface.

Now the company is rolling out its latest update, this one taking the OS to a version known as “Jackalope”. The update contains a number of improvements, including a new 5-star rating system for all games, the ability to postpone system updates, altered functionality of the “O” and “U” buttons on the controller, better support for navigation with Bluetooth and IR remotes, rank numbers for the “Now Trending”, and a number of bug fixes.

If you don’t get this update right away, please go to MANAGE -> SYSTEM -> SYSTEM UPDATES to grab it. You can also watch the video below to get an idea of what to expect.
