A. Update your device to the latest firmware.

  1. Plug in your AILA Sit & Play into a wall outlet.
  2. Ensure AILA Sit & Play is connected to your home Wi-Fi network (recommend home Wi-Fi connection for security measures).
  3. Press the Home button and tap on the AILA Control icon for Settings.Screenshot_20200724-110756
  4. Tap on About Device and select Detect Firmware updates.


5. Follow the onscreen instructions. Tap on Update to start the process.


6. Tap DOWNLOAD IN THE BACKGROUND to continue playing content while the update is in process.


7. Once the new version has finished downloading, tap install


8. Wait for the device to complete installation and it will reboot itself. The firmware is now updated on your AILA Sit & Play device. If your current firmware is a much older version, your AILA Sit & Play may have to go through several update cycles to complete installation to the latest firmware version.



  • If your update fails and you receive an error message, please ensure you are connected to a stable private Wi-Fi connection and try the update again by pressing the Home Button and navigating to Settings -> "About device" -> "Check for firmware update." This may require a few tries without a strong Wi-Fi connection.
  • AILA must have a battery of 50% or more to download a new update
  • Once the firmware update completes, new content may download in the background. If you begin a learning session while content is loading (verifiable by the cloud icon in the top right), it may not work.  To resolve this, put it on Broadcast mode until the content finishes downloading.  If that still doesn’t correct it, please restart the device and try again.

B. Ensure you have the latest version of the AILA For Parents mobile app.
