More Device Support

We’re always expanding the number of devices we support. So we have included support for the Honeywell VM3A and the Point Mobile PM85 and PM90 devices with this release.

Support for true Passwordless Authentication in Web

Velocity now supports true usernameless and passwordless authentication through the addition ofWebauthn and FIDO2. Using NFC, authentication to the web host application is highly secure and easy as tapping an ID card and entering a PIN.

Updated Management Methods

We have made several big changes in the way that Velocity is managed. You can now take a device where Velocity is fully configured and easily share the configuration with any number of other devices using an NFC tap. All of the host profiles and other associated files will be downloaded from the master to the target.

Avalanche customers using Android Enterprise now have an additional option in the Velocity App Config in the Play Store. Configuration bundles can be hosted in Avalanche, and by using the configuration manifest option, Velocity clients will download their configurations from an Avalanche server. Additionally, customers using the soon-to-be-released Avalanche version will see that the Velocity License ID will now be available as an additional field in device details. This makes it easier to correlate devices between Avalanche and the Velocity License server.

We have changed the folder that the client looks in for its configuration because of the Android operating system changes, so ensure that you refer to the updated documentation for the latest news.

Additional Scanning Options

Customers deploying devices without dedicated hardware scanners can now configure camera scanning in the console and push down scanner profiles to their devices. In addition, the client now includes embedded camera scanning support. Furthermore, Honeywell customers can configure Velocity as a target for their Android intents in the wedge.

Script Updates

As always, there are more scripting options available. For example, the Velocity License ID is accessible via script so that you can use it as needed. Also, the Launch Intent script APIs have been extended to include Array data types for improved integration options with external applications.

More Client Options

Integrations to other applications on the device are now easier. An icon will appear in the client taskbar that makes shelling out to external applications much more accessible, such as quickly launching Zebra Workforce Connect or pulling up a calculator.

For customers who are running in immersive mode or a lock task mode, WiFi signal strength and battery level indicators can be overlaid on top of the client so that task workers are always aware of the status of each.
