I don’t see this update on the play store. It’s still as 0.12.1. Maybe because I’m on the beta channel.

Sorry, it’s not available on the Play Store yet. There are some things to iron out first.
You can manually install the version from this post though.

I just installed this 0.22 version on my Windows 10 computer, and while using USB tethering with my Android device I cannot get the Android device as a server to work with my computer.
I get the following error from the log file:
com.azefsw.audioconnect.desktop.a.f.c: Failed to load C:\Program Files (x86)\AudioRelay\opus.dll
then a few lines of stack trace down…
Caused by: java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: C:\Program Files (x86)\AudioRelay\opus.dll: Can’t load IA 32-bit .dll on a AMD 64-bit platform

You can resolve that by deleting the C:\Program Files (x86)\AudioRelay folder and reinstalling the app.

The new installer should have deleted all the dll files present in this folder.

You went from the 0.12 (from the website) version directly to 0.22, right?

Made an update, the links now point to 0.22.1
