Upgrading from Mycroft

As the mycroft.ai Selene server is no more, Mycroft’s devices will need a replacement OS / personal assistant. There are some different upgrade options depending on what device you’re using.

  • Neon OS is a prebuilt OS supporting Raspberry Pi4 and Pi5 with the Mark 2, most ReSpeaker audio devices, and USB audio.

  • RaspOVOS is a prebuilt OS supporting Raspberry Pi3 and Pi4 with limited support for the Mark 2, most ReSpeaker audio devices, and USB audio.

  • OVOS Installer can be used to install OpenVoiceOS on top of many operating systems, such as RaspberryPi OS.


Some highly technical community members are independently attempting some stubbed out workarounds, but these are not simple, and we haven’t verified their functionality.

Hi Daniel! Do you know if Neon OS recognizes the wakeword models trained on mycroft precise?


Most of the wake words I know of have moved to Precise Lite or OpenWW, but there is a Precise plugin that should still be installable.

I’d recommend trying Open Wake Word though as running the model should be less CPU-intensive and the model building is pretty easy. There’s a great guide on the HomeAssistant Forums.

Configuration is much like Mycroft except that Neon uses YAML which I think is a little easier to work with. We have more details/examples in our docs

Quick question, would any of folks may know if any of these OS’s images are available for the Jetson Nano board vs. the Pi? Currently, is what I have available until my order of a PI arrives.

Forum has been migrated to https://community.openconversational.ai/ which now regroups Mycroft AI (defuncted), Open Voice OS (OVOS) and Neon communities. :slight_smile:

OVOS and Neon are very active :tada:
