We are pleased to announce the release of BluOS 3.6 which includes several exciting features that will give Bluesound owners better performance, access to more music and the anticipated support of Google assistant.
Updates are as follows:
- Google Assistant
Android users can now enjoy voice control over their BluOS players using Google Assistant simply by using commands such as ‘’Hey Google, talk to Blue Voice to play We are the world by Michael Jackson in the living room’’. Along with track selection, users can control volume, repeat and other selections are also possible.
- IDAGIO streaming service ‘The ultimate classical music collection in one app’
IDAGIO offers a search tailor-made for classical music, a catalogue of over 2 million licensed tracks, and exclusive recordings and playlists curated by renowned experts – all available in CD-quality sound FLAC (16-bit/44kHz).
- Pulse Sound performance Update
The Pulse 2i and Pulse Mini 2i will receive a performance update as part of the general BluOS 3.6 release, the acoustics team are continually making improvements to the digital signal processor configuration to optimise sound performance through software. The most noticeable improvement will be more emphasis in the low frequencies, especially at higher volumes.
- Learning Commands for TV, Music and Movie settings
We have added more IR learning commands to the IR settings menu, including the ability to assign the TV, Music, and Movie pre-sets on the Pulse Soundbar2i, Pulse2i and Pulse mini 2i to any remote control which will give customers better content control and more time enjoying movies and music.
MQA-CD Playback And Ripping
Owners of BLUESOUND’s VAULT will be able to rip and store MQA-CDs. The unique way in which MQA-CDs are encoded allows them to deliver richer, more natural sound. With the forthcoming BluOS software update, not only will Bluesound Vault owners be able to decode and play back MQA content from an MQA-CD, but also rip and store that content to their players, with all the benefits of MQA content intact.
