You'll first want to make sure your CDJs, mixer, and Now Playing are all connected to the same LAN.

You can use your internet router / wifi router or hub as long as everything is on the same subnet.

Turn on your CDJs and mixer and wait for them to all fully start up.

Open the Now Playing app and it will automatically detect your CDJs and start in ProDJ-Link mode.

Master Mode

Now Playing will update when the CDJs change master tempo. Your CDJs will automatically change master tempo.

You can also press the master tempo button on your CDJ if you want to update Now Playing manually.

Master Mode was the mixing mode used in Now Playing 1.0 if you want it to work that way.
