Introducing BluOS™ 4.0

We are delighted to announce the release of BluOS 4.0, now available to the public. BluOS, the original high-resolution wireless multi-room streaming ecosystem, enhances your audio experience with the modern and intuitive BluOS 4.0 Controller App update for your mobile devices, tablets, and desktop. Drawing inspiration from user feedback and our customer-centric approach, this redesign introduces a fresh home screen and a convenient bottom navigation bar, providing effortless access to your most-used music and features. Discover your devices, search for your favorite music and streaming services, and manage your playlist with greater ease than ever before.

As we introduce BluOS 4.0, we kindly recommend that users update their BluOS players through the BluOS controller app for the optimal experience. To ensure the best performance, we encourage our customers to begin with the update of their BluOS App followed by their Player(s). BluOS 4.0 offers full support for all generations of Bluesound/BluOS products. We have included a transitional feature in version 4.0, allowing customers the option to revert to the previous version of the BluOS App if they choose not to enhance their experience at this time. This option will remain available for a limited period before we eventually request all customers to make a permanent move to 4.0. You can access this option in the Settings menu of the App. This significant release marks another substantial advancement in our platform infrastructure development.
