With version 1.3, the Bang & Olufsen app adds support for Speaker Sharing – that is, joining together TV products which are integrated with sound systems products such as BeoSound Core, BeoSound Moment or BeoSound Essence (2nd gen.). The lead TV product is then displayed and interacted with as one product in the app.
Once the integration is set-up on the TV, the Bang & Olufsen app will, within a short while, recognize this and only display the TV product in the Home, Multiroom, Music and Now Playing screens. The devices are still listed as separate on the My Product screen.
You can control the TV product as before, as well as controlling the additional music sources made available through the integration with the sound system, and use as a multiroom speaker.
Integrating the TV with another sound system product is supported for all of our TVs, except the BeoVision Eclipse as it has the capabilities built in.
Speaker sharing can be set-up on the TV by selecting another product to integrate with. Once this has been configured on the TV, additional sources become available on the TV and the Bang & Olufsen app will, within a short while, recognize this and only display the TV product in the Home screen.
You can always break this integration by turning it off on the TV in settings and the Bang & Olufsen app will adjust within a short while.
