Does the Yoto Player need to be online to work?

Advice on using a Yoto Player offline

WiFi needed
Yoto Player needs to be connected to a WiFi network in order to download content from a card for the first time, to play radio, receive new Yoto Daily updates and to receive important Yoto OS update.


Yoto Player can play back all cards (except radio cards which do need a live connection) offline but they do need to have been downloaded first.

The first time a card is played, the content will start to download and be saved on the Player storage. This may take some time for long stories or cards. Once the content is downloaded, it will be available for playback offline.
