Hi, our Beoplay A9 was updated the other day and suddenly it seems as it doesnt drop the WIFI signal so easy any more. Does anyone know where to find the release notes?

Sorry I dont know actually.

When an app is updated on iOS through the app store it tells you, however, i can't seem to find the release notes for a product (not an app) update.

The B&O set up page for my a9 just says 

  • 16.12.2017 10:23:47
    Automatic update to v.: 1.15.17640.17856519

Hmm... ...another fw update available for the A9 but I can’t find release notes so I rather not go forward with the update until someone posts what it is and does it actually fix whatever it is supposed to (without creating new issues).

SW v.1.17.22533.7625124 for Beoplay A6, Beoplay A9 (2nd gen.), BeoSound Essence (2nd gen.), 

Features added:

Compliance to GDPR (General Data Protection Handling). Due to the new EU regulations regarding data protection handling, new terms need to be accepted. It will not be possible to submit logfiles before the new terms have been accepted. The new terms should be accepted through the Bang & Olufsen App.

Issues fixed/improved:

-          Fixed Beoplay A6 turns down volume automatically.

-          Improved discovery of products in Multiroom and other Multiroom improvements

-          Fixes done when changing from Chromecast to another source, where the new source would not play afterwards.

-          Fixed problems where Chromecast would not play when casting to Beoplay M5.

-          Fixed not being able to play certain TuneIn radio stations, or stations were lost

-          Fixed general connection issues with the BeoSound Shape

-          Fixed issues with Spotify playing with no sound

-          Fixed issue with Essence remote pairing lost if changing battery in the remote.  

-          Fixed issue where in some cases the pairing to Essence remote was lost

-          Fixed issue where BeoSound Core would be playing at high volume.

The products automatically receive software updates, as long as they are connected to the Internet, and the feature has not been disabled by the customer (automatic software update can be enabled/disabled using the Bang & Olufsen App).

Big thanks, looks like Chromecast “bug” has been fixed which was one of the biggest problems in last release. Great news. :)

New software update today for A9 and A6 (I assume Essence Mk II too...):

1.17.23091.157086471

Not an Airplay2 update, so what could it be? :)

For me it has made the Deezer hifi streaming from Google home accessible again after almost 1 year of unavailability! (In short : I can say « ok Google, play some music » and the A9 starts a music stream from my Deezer hifi subscription)
