It is a little slow. No option to remove bloat (features in the GUI that I don't use). No option to simply switch to Bluetooth as the source. You have to manually switch off line-in sensitivity to be able to keep a Bluetooth connection when having a optical cable inserted(even when the optical source is turned completely off). The Bluetooth connection can be horrible unstable - Works fine with phone, but I'm still trying to make a stable connection from a laptop 4 meters away... This review is based on BL20 and BSCore. No tutorial, manual or readme supplied or available (probably because the software isn't finished yet)
It's much better than the old one, but is still lacking some features. For instance, you shouldn't have to go all the way into product setup to activate an alarm. And why do I need to open spotify in order to play music whereas deezer and tunein are integrated in the B&O app? Looking forward to the next update!
The B&O thought police seem to think that all that is needed is "favourite albums "etc. Wrong, I want to be able to see an artist in alphabetical order like all other apps Why is this so difficult for such a premium priced product? Verdict: Must try harder B&O!
Wonderful app. Works very well for me, both with my old and new B&O products. I'd like to have a search function of the DLNA content.
B and O are beautiful but you can't actally use their products because they just can't do software. Hopeless. An absolute waste of money. Can't believe I spent thousands on vaguely attractive bits of of metal that you can't actually use to play music.
My initial review expressed a lot of disappointments, but bless BO, they've been listening. The app still has reconnectivity issues, but a lot of other bugs and feature issues have been addressed. I look forward to get more improvements and a higher rating.
With this release, the Bang & Olufsen app becomes brighter, faster and easier to use– we hope you like it. The tab-based navigation makes it quicker to move between screens, including Home and Multiroom.
The app now supports the set-up of two striking new B&O products, the BeoSound Shape and the BeoLab 50. The Beoplay A8, Beoplay A9 (1st gen), BeoLit 12 and the Playmaker can now be set-up and configured in the app.
All of our updates include performance improvements and bug fixes.
