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

Exactly, it would be matter of hours, not days. It has been 3 days and there is no trace of new software for me. Also I am in Europe.

I suppose we/some of us will have to be patient, then.

Maybe they need a couple of weeks to roll it out…..in order to hear the feedback from those, who were lucky enough to be the first.

And I guess, that it will start to be really interesting once Spotify HIFI is rolled out too.

TWG:

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:
https://community.spotify.com/t5/Other-Podcasts-Partners-etc/B-amp-O-and-Spotify-Connect/td-p/4393407/page/3

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

The M5 and Core have always have spotify connect though.

So guys, did anobody get the update later? Millemissen?

Henrik wrote this under the video:

"
Hi guys - now the update should be rolled out.! Check if you can update your product - if not - go into the webserver of the product (the black page under config) see if the update comes up there.

That seems to be the reason.

However, one may wonder why the support was not able to provide me with that information (there were three guys involved in my request).

And also - it would be nice, if we could have a scedule for the roll-out.

By the way - if you go to the german part of the B&O website, you will find exactly the same information on use and opdating of the M3 in order to have Spotify Connect there as on the danish part of the site……despite the fact that the update is not rolled out in Germany (yet).

My M3 and M5’s updated tonight. I’m in Australia.

Not sure what the update did on the M5’s but Spotify is now working on the M3 which is brilliant.

BeoSound 1 2nd.gen (non-GVA, North America) updated from: 1.11.45905   to: 1.12.47108

Spotify Connect is working.  Note: You might have to exit the Spotify application and restart it to force it to scan for devices.  Should be automatic, but it didn't discover my BS1/2gen/non-GVA/1.12 until I quit.  

As expected & reported, my 1.7 BS1 (as an example) cannot be joined to my 1.12 BS1 while the latter is playing via Spotify Connect -- doesn't even show up in the B&O App's list -- but it can be joined while playing from the DLNA server.  Whether this is the B&O App being "smart" to prevent it, or some underlying "feature" of Spotify Connect protocol interaction is unknowable for mere mortals, but I confirm the rule stated that the speaker joining must also have Spotify Connect support is true, or "enforced", or whatever.

---> The bug where DLNA playback does not update the counter from 0:00 is still (¡STILL!) not fixed.  (Since 1.7.  That's at least 3 versions now...)

Minor app bug: Product Settings/About still reports the old 1.11 software version #, even though Product Settings/Software shows the new 1.12 version #.  App must be storing it somewhere, because the device's webserver reports the correct new # too.
