So it’s now Feb 23, and so far no one has posted feedback about receiving the update. I’ve been waiting for it myself, but so far nothing. Has anyone actually gotten it?

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, 2020.


People are reporting they have received the update and installed it without event. Others are reporting problems trying to self install unauthorized “manual updates.” I haven’t received my notice about the update yet. I am sure it will arrive in due course on or before February 25th. 

 

This has to be the most anticipated firmware update in the history of firmware updates.

It’s here!  I received the update this evening, and now I’m enjoying a little Sting via AirPlay 2. 

Bose:  Thank you for delivering this.  It’s appreciated!

We’ll finally  got it, after 4 years asking for this update  yesterday I installed it in my SoundTouch ecosystem and works great. I was very frustrated with Bose they made us wait to much but thanks.

My SoundTouch 10 updated but no AirPlay, on providing my serial number to the Bose support person they've arrange a return for repair.

 

Purchased the SoundTouch 10 in Nov 2015 so probably part of the batch without the Apple AirPlay hardware. Free service from Bose on a 4 year old speaker so I think that's good service and worth the wait.

Re: Will we ever see the AirPlay 2 update for SoundTouch?

Same for me, my ST10 and one of my 20's I think I purchased around Jan 2015 and so not working with Airplay 2, but have sent them off to Bose service.  Now just have to wait a few weeks(?) to get them back.  I don't mind waiting another few weeks for Airplay 2 on them, but sort of inconvenient to not have them at all in the meantime.  Still, in the end it will be worth it.

Installed ok to 3 of my ST10's but appears it won't recognise or play to paired speakers - so that was a  waste of time & effort!!

THE UPDATE DROPPED!  It looks like a normal update but after it does it you get a screen that states airplay 2 has been added and I EVEN USED IT!
