Same problem here - got my cooker yesterday and can only monitor it. Hopefully it will get resolved quickly. One temporary workaround apart from manually setting the cooker is to use the “Anova Culinary” app instead of the wifi app. Works for me on IOS and over bluetooth.
Still no word from Anova
Hey all - I’m continuing to update the main post of this thread with added information.

Hey all - I’m continuing to update the main post of this thread with added information.ICYMI - We’ve updated the Android app (and it is now live on the Play store). We’re now waiting for Apple approval for the new build. Once you update, you will need to re-connect to your cooker. This will resolve any lingering issues you may be experiencing.Thank you so much for your patience while we work through this!
Started a 24hr test. Will let you know. Thanks for your work on this Bill!
I just got the latest update from the app store (I’m on iOS) and the app will no longer connect to my Anova WiFi. It was working fine last week, I used it to cook some chicken, but when I went to use it again tonight, no dice. It keeps saying “could not connect to Anova Wifi, cancel/retry”.
iOS Users: Please update to the latest app on the App store. Download here . The update will resolve the issues you're experiencing.
@mcollign - We’re still waiting for the updated app approval on the Apple store - that’s why you’re still seeing the issues you’re describing.
I’m on iOS.
I had a very hard time connecting to my Anova after the app updated. I restarted my device and it connected within 30 seconds. I am on Android however.
is there a newer version than 0.0.133 for android in the pipeline? I’m still having problems to connect my Wifi cooker.
Been running a cook today for 9 hours until now and monitored the temp remotely. So far it seems to work as planned on version 1.1.6 (iOS) I hope we never get problems like this again
Just updated to 1.1.6 (iOS), gave it a few test try and so far so good.
Just finished a 60hr test with my own temperature logger to verify. No random temperature changes. I have also had no problem using the wifi during that period.
I did a 12 hour cook and it went fine, however I did not get any push notifications when the timer reached zero or initially when the target temp. was reached.
I have an apple 6s and downloaded the app yesterday. It can connect when I’m on my own network and even when I turn off my wifi and Bluetooth at home but as soon as I leave my network and go anywhere far away, I lose connection. Is there a fix to this?
@Bill I have been having all sorts of issue with latest ios update. 2 different routers neither are 5ghz. the app will die and close while trying to pair, or it may show that it is paired but I get the dreaded try again. if it does manage to pair, I get the not found, unplug message. I have sent to messages to support in regards to this. I am an early adopter, I also own two bluetooth models. I have been trying to pair this device for the last 2 hours with no luck!
@Bill for what its worth, I downloaded the regular release and loaded it on my ipad.I was able to connect my device to the network and run the cooker normally. The latest beta version on my iphone 6 seesm to be the culprit. I am going to the app store to down load the public version on my phone to see if t works there.
@Bill the app store ios version is working on my iphone. The Beta is absolutely the culprit!!
@bigfish3 - Thanks for the heads up! I’ve copied all this down and forwarded it to my dev team working on this
I was told I cannot connect to WIFI because my SSID name has a space???
I have a smart home and if I change it I’m looking at having to change 30 other connected items just for this to work.
Come on is this really the case or is it another trouble shooting to keep me away for a few days ?
