Yodeck works on all versions of the Raspberry Pi, from the very first release back in 2012, until the very latest. Each hardware version has its own restrictions. Here, we provide a detailed matrix to show features and compatibility.
For new deployments, we recommend using the latest version (currently, the Raspberry Pi 4). This will ensure that you have all features supported by your hardware, even if you currently do not use any.

* Yodeck Recommendations:
- Recommended: These are the models we recommend for all new deployments. They support 4K and are the most future-proof option.
- Fully Supported: These models are fully supported and we will continue to provide support for them in the future. Keep in mind that these units cannot playback 4K content.
- Single Playlist only: These models are slow but work fine. You should only use them for a single full-screen Playlist, perhaps safely adding a single ticker. We recommend against these for new installations.
- Not recommended: These 256MB units will work but will be sluggish and will fail at some point. Use these only for testing and not for production deployments.
Note that we ship Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ units. In November 2019, we will start shipping Raspberry Pi 4 units. All Raspberry Pi units come for free with our Annual Plans.
