Looking for a new way to access your digital collection items? hoopla has announced support for Amazon Alexa devices, including support for the Echo, Dot, Spot, and Show.
In addition to those already supported, hoopla has recently added support for the Amazon FireTV 3rd Generation, as well as the Chromecast Ultra device.
As part of the natural lifecycle of technology, hoopla occasionally phases out support for older browsers or devices. With this in mind, the service announced it is ending support for Apple iOS9 devices (such as the iPad Mini and the iPhone 4s). While hoopla will continue to work on these Apple devices for the immediate future, they will not receive future app updates.
Similarly, hoopla will also be ending support for Internet Explorer 11. While hoopla notes that IE11 accounts "only a tiny fraction of hoopla browser usage," the service understand that this may impact customers using a Microsoft operating system that predates Windows 10. The best alternative for such customers will be to utilize a different browser, such as Chrome or Firefox.
