In what could easily be called the most adorable app update in history, Sphero's BB-8 App Enabled Droid is now an even better companion for the most die-hard Star Wars fan. The Droid has been upgraded to watch the latest films from the franchise along with you, but with one tiny limit: no crying.
In April last year the Droid launched a featured called 'Watch With Me' where he would sit in his charging cradle and adorably react to 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens', beeping and booping especially loudly when he saw himself on screen. Now, Sphero has added 'Rogue One: A Star Wars Story' to his repertoire.
But there's also the little patch the app update comes with:

Along with the update adding reactions to 'Rogue One', BB-8 has been programmed to "refrain from crying in movies" which makes him a better companion than most, especially with the emotional final act of the latest Star Wars offering.
The next Star Wars film, 'Episide VIII: The Last Jedi' is scheduled to fly into cinemas in December, while the Han Solo prequel starring Alden Ehrenreich is slated for mid-2018.
