New Bang & Olufsen software keeps past, present & future products connected

An automatic software update to Beolink is being rolled out across Bang & Olufsen’s product line to ensure they work seamlessly together, connecting the past, present and future.

The new update provides a simple way to wirelessly connect new Bang & Olufsen home speakers with classic multiroom installation and iconic products through decades of Beolink innovation.

“Beolink Multiroom is built for the future and enables all our network enabled products to be seamlessly connected, played and controlled together across rooms,” said Christoffer Poulsen, SVP of product management and brand partnering at Bang & Olufsen.

“It also brings intuitive features that make starting a musical moment easy, such as One Touch to Music and Touch to Join. These features elevate your multiroom music experience and allows for greater control over your entire entertainment set up which can grow with you over time.”

The company’s history in multiroom technology dates back to the early 1980s with the introduction of Master Control Link. In 1986, Bang & Olufsen launched Beolink Multiroom which provided compatibility throughout all generations of its products.

To celebrate 40 years of its multiroom technology, Bang & Olufsen has introduced the Beolink Multiroom technology for its latest Audio Technology Platform in Beosound Balance, Beosound Level, Beosound Emerge, and Beolab 28. This brings Beolink connectivity to its latest technology platform, bridging the company’s longstanding heritage of connected products from 1986 and spanning different technologies and music formats, including turntables, CD players, MP3 media, to the latest steaming media and music services.

Its One Touch to Music feature allows listeners to start music playback quickly and easily without using a phone. Users simply tap on a speaker and use the remote to start playing music from their preferred source, such as a turntable, CD player or streaming service. The four favourite buttons offer simple tap to choose preferred music experiences which are easily tailored for the user during set up in the Bang & Olufsen app.

Touch to Join enables users to connect speakers easily. They can simply touch the speaker or join via a remote to make the music plat in a new room.

Beolink integration also allows customers to control all speakers throughout the home using their preferred control device, such as the Beoremote One, Beoremote Halo or the Bang & Olufsen app.
