App Update Info
We regularly release app updates to keep our software up to date, including bug fixes and new features.
Keep in mind that installing and updating SPIKE App software requires administrator rights. App updates are performed as follows:
Windows and macOS
Users are directed to https://education.lego.com/downloads, from where they can download and install the new release. Windows users can also download the update from the Windows Store.
iOS, Android and ChromeOS
If users have enabled auto updates in their app store configuration, updates are downloaded and installed automatically. If not, they will be required to manually update their app from within the relevant store.
Updates to curriculum unit plan content can be carried out using the following methods:
- If enabled, users can trigger a unit plan update directly from the update notification within the app.
- Users can update the content of a unit plan from within the unit plan overview, if the “Update available” button is visible.
Notifications are a useful way of letting users know that an update is available or required. Enabled within the app settings page, notifications are sent when
- a critical bug fix or feature release is available (non-critical bug fixes will not trigger a notification);
- a content update to a downloaded unit plan is available; or
- a user is required to update the Hub, because the app and Hub OS versions are not compatible with each other (this notification cannot be disabled).
Hub OS Updates
When a user connects a Hub to their device, the app verifies that it is compatible with the Hub OS version. If not, the app notifies the user that a Hub OS is required before they can continue.
Updated to SPIKE 3
The SPIKE 3 Beta app installs a new Hub OS that is not compatible with the SPIKE 2 app. If you have installed the new Hub OS and want to go back to using the SPIKE 2 app, go to https://spike.legoeducation.com/hubdowngrade to downgrade your Hub OS to the compatible version.
LEGO® Education SPIKE™ App
If you have LEGO® Education SPIKE™ Prime / LEGO® Education SPIKE™ Essential then you need to download and install the SPIKE App or use the web version.
