I would be over the moon if you switched my BM/BS5 to a newer NL product!

This will also eliminate the need to buy a BLC for it 👍🏻👍🏻

To me, this would totally make up for the forthcoming loss of the Spotify feature.

Played music on two of my Beoplay devices.

The "X app" was active on my iPhone.

When I got a call (Facetime) on my phone, the music volume was turned down (not complete silence) on my devices.

When I ended the call, the music started to play again at earlier volume.

Is this a feature on the "X app"? If so, its nice Smile

Hello Mr Anderson

 

Just a heads up.

 

Earlier this week I had my music on my essence mk2 in the kitchen via the X App, I love the new lock screen part.

I then put the essence to standby and went up to bed.

I dock my phone on a speaker which is also a charger, the X app was still on the lockl screen and it started playing very very loud music on the essence to I had to run down stairs and unplug the essence

Not quite the usual BL20 Armageddon... but scary... but a user error... dumb user since I sort of did it twice.

I was playing my iTunes weekend recommendations using Airplay to the Essence at around 50% volume.

As I was nearing the end of the playlist and so I thought I would start browsing the Deezer playlist so I brought up the X player B&O iApp ... instant WHAM the existing Airplay song is screaming at full volume.

I quickly pressed paused and silence reigned.

I foolishly then started iTunes playing again and WHAM ... which was when I noticed that the iTunes/ iPhone volume slider had been ratcheted up to 100%

Presumably the X iApp was adding 50% to the original iTunes 50% when it was brought to the foreground ???

Killing the app/swiping up would be a workaround.

Mr Anderson please look at my thread about my essence after using the X app.

It keeps doing strange things after I play Tunein and press standby via the app

It keeps turning on at different times after I have used it

Please take a look if you need any logs etc you can email me on here and I will email you directly.
