SoundTouch Firmware Update - 24.0.7

Starting on Tuesday, February 18th, the 24.0.7 firmware update will be rolled out for Bose SoundTouch Speakers. The update will roll out in phases and you may not receive the update until February 25th. When the update is available for your speaker(s), log into the SoundTouch app and accept the update.

 

What is in this release?  

 

Airplay2 Support on:

SoundTouch 10

SoundTouch 20 Series III

SoundTouch 30 Series III

Bose SoundTouch SA-5 Amplifier

Bose Wave SoundTouch Music System IV

SoundTouch 300 soundbar

You’ll be able to control your speakers from your iOS control center. Just touch and hold the audio card in the top-right corner, then tap the Airplay 2 icon. You can also control directly from some of your favorite streaming services.

 

SiriusXM (SXM) stability improvements and access to additional SXM content

Please see the previous post here

 

SXM users will need to make sure you have updated to the latest version of the SoundTouch app and that you are using the most recent firmware for your Bose speaker. You’ll need to add your SiriusXM account details again, even if you’ve connected in the past.

 

2/20 Update 

 

Here is some helpful information for Airplay 2:

  • The only SoundTouch products that support Airplay 2 at this time are the ones listed above, regardless of the Bluetooth capabilities of the device.
  • Using Airplay with your SoundTouch Speaker.
  • If you are having issues using Airplay 2 with a Bose SoundTouch supported product:
    • Please make sure your devices meet the latest requirements from Apple found here. You’ll want to make sure your Airplay 2-compatible speakers are on and nearby, connected to the same Wi-Fi network as your device and are updated to the latest software version.
    • Try the ‘Difficulty selecting your SoundTouch system on an Airplay device' steps.
    • While we strive to continuously offer new software features and updates to make your speakers improve over time, certain older products simply do not have the hardware components to support these features. For your SoundTouch product(s) purchased before October 2015, it may be one of the devices built without the appropriate Apple authentication chip to support Airplay 2. If you have a speaker that supports AP2, have the update, tried the troubleshooting steps above and still cannot connect to Airplay, please reach out to one of our customer representatives here and we’d be happy to assist further.

Can you say anything about future support of the SoundTouch Wireless Link Adapter?

It has Bluetooth after all. Thanks!

Re: SoundTouch Firmware Update - 24.0.7

This is great! 


It would also be great if there was a list posted of other devices in the works and devices that will never get the update. That way we know what to expect.

 

I also have a Lifestyle 535 and a wireless link adapter.

Re: SoundTouch Firmware Update - 24.0.7

Is there any date for releasing airplay 2 functionality to the soundtouch wireless link?  What’s the reason why this device was not included?

Re: SoundTouch Firmware Update - 24.0.7

No update for the SA4 - I see, I continue to disappointed by Bose - Initially AirPlay support was really bad, they released the SA5 very quickly and promised support for SA4 - Promised support for Apple Music - Promised AirPlay 2 support on SA4, then waited nearly 2 years and it looks like Bose have choked again.

 

Bose is a Joke !!

Re: SoundTouch Firmware Update - 24.0.7

Oh... my..... goodness!!!!

 

I feel like a kid on Christmas Eve. Up until the update a few weeks ago, I never thought this day would come. 

 

I’m going to be super anxious to go home every day after work and see if this pops up on my app.

 

I grabbed a SoundTouch 20 on clearance about 2 weeks ago at a great price. Time to hit the clearance and used markets before everyone else finds out 🙂

 

So pumped I hope this works as advertised.

Re: SoundTouch Firmware Update - 24.0.7

Glad to see Airplay finally rolling out on the SoundTouch platform. Sad to see SoundTouch Wi-Fi adaptors aren’t being included, despite being BlueTooth capable.

 

Fortunately with Airplay landing on so many platforms I can pick up Apple music streams via my Samsung TV which is Airplay enabled and connected to my Cinemate 130.

 

I am looking forward to running Airplay 2 through the paces on all my different devices and dropping some of the AirPort Adaptors.
