V2.1 - next release (week 21)

In this version, we focus on quality and fixing side-effects of the major 2.0 rewrite, especially with regards to how BeoSound Moment works in the ecosystem, such as when sharing speakers with a BeoVision TV, as well as many smaller improvements.

  • Fixed issue so when sharing speakers with a problem, the display now shows correct metadata if activated, but does not turn on by itself, or stay on, when a TV source is playing.
  • Fixed issue where resting your finger on the volume wheel would put the product into standby.
  • Fixed errors when scrolling to the end of a DLNA or TuneIn radio folder.
  • Fixed issues in showing Greek text, and made it possible to select the Greek keyboard.
  • Fixed play queue deletion issue. Now, if the display is turned on, starting music using the aluminium wheel continues the play queue, rather than triggering Pattern Play.
  • Fixed errors where an extra tap was needed before you could scroll.
  • Fixed 400 track limit on Loved Tracks playlist error.
  • Improved DLNA harvesting, fixing several issues causing harvesting to be unreliable on some systems.
  • Improved scrolling to be smoother.
  • Improved the ‘back’ swipe so you can you navigate back using your left thumb.
  • Improved “double-tap to play” functionality, so it now works on all tiles.
  • Improved notification area by reducing unnecessary duplications.
  • Restored version 1.x behaviour of automatically switch to Now Playing screen after 60 seconds of inactivity while music is playing.
