Does B&O provide some CHANGELOG file? So we know exactly which products will be updated and what are the changes?
For example I have a non-GVA BeoSound 1 gen.2 and there is no software update..?

Isn't it possible to write a simple text with all products? MUCH faster and convenient than a video. ;-)

Sure, but Henrik is just showing what he can do in that setup - and for a lot of people seeing makes it easier to understand than reading about it.

However, feel free to make the ‘text’ - would be nice to have ;-)

According to the discussions here on Beoworld and the short video (with good music by the way) the following devices have the update:

- M3

- M5

- Beosound Core

- Beoplay A9 MK1

- Beosound 1 / Beosound 1 GVA

- ...

 

Please feel free to contribute if there are more devices with spotify connect (re-)enabled.

 

Very interesting that the A9 MK1 is supported again... as spotify support was removed in 2018 which resulted in some angry customers:

A VERY positive move from Bang & Olufsen to listen to their customers and bring back the functionality.

Old & new version numbers, or it didn't happen. (Echoing the car-repair boards where pictures are de rigueur.Smile)

Ex: My BeoSound 1 Gen.2 non-GVA in North America has not moved from 1.11.45905 for months.  Also cf. @libor, above.  So delete or qualify the BS1 entry.  (Knowing that in the other thread his BS1 gen-?? GVA went to 1.10.xxxx but @Hiort did not actually test to see if Spotify Connect was supported(?) is not definitive!)

I have noticed a change in Spotify functionality.

I can no longer activate Spotify directly on my M5s and Eclipse 1st gen using a MyBotton on BR1BT.

The only way to start Spotify now is to use the Spotify app. The join function on BR1BT is still working.

Has anyone else also noticed this change?

Excellent news!  (So I could have even used the traditional phrase, "pictures or it didn't happen"Big Smile)  Now we can actually *hope* for it to migrate to North America and the BS1 Gen.2 non-GVA.

Seems that these sw-updates are being rolled out differently in different regions….why?

Maybe to prevent all our devices from downloading the new software at the same time, and thus to keep their servers up and running?

My M3's don't see the new software either. The iPhone app does mention Spotify in the settings already. (But other than opening the Spotify app, it doesn't really do anything.)

Yes, but that many devices aren’t there that it would have to take several days/nights.

I contacted the support - all they adviced, was to make sure the app is updated to latest version…..which really does not make sense, when the problem is the missing update of the device.

I wrote back that one of my iPads runs the beta-version (being a beta tester) and the others the latest regular version from the app store.

Since that I heard nothing Sad

 

As for how this works - the B&O app is supposed to open the Spotify app. There you will have to choose your music and which of your Spotify Connect B&O devices you want to play to. After that you can go back to the B&O app again and from there control the playback (pause/play, volume control etc), you can expand to other devices respectively join from other devices, turn off a specific device or all….just like when you play a radio station.

Actually you will only have to use the Spotify app, when you start and choose your music….which is good, since the Spotify ui is excellent.

Once playing you have can have the full B&O (multiroom) experience (provided your devices are Spotify Connect enabled) - including using the physical remote.
