Spotify Connect is Here! Updates for MBX-Series and XTS/XTSPlus are Available!
We are very pleased to announce that Spotify Connect is now available through a free firmware update for the MBX-Series of streaming audio products. In addition to the basic Spotify Connect functionality that Russound customers have enjoyed with Russound's previous generation of audio streaming products, the new version of Spotify Connect for the MBX-Series allows users to save their favorite Spotify content as easy-to-use Russound Favorites, accessible without having to open the Spotify App on their phone first.
The new Spoitify Connect functionality is available in firmware version 1.03.06, available immediately for any new installations and which will be rolled out automatically to all MBX devices worldwide that are set for automatic updates over the next 1-2 weeks.
In addition to the release of Spotify Connect, this new firmware version also adds album art support for all supported stations in TuneIn. Previous releases of the MBX firmware supported station artwork only.
XTS/XTSPlus Firmware Update
In order to store Spotify content as Russound Favorites, an update to the XTS and XTSPlus firmware is also required (Version 10.01.06). The update is available now.
Besides enabling Spotify Connect Favorite functionality when used with an MBX-Series streamer, this update also includes other new features that were recently released as part of the iOS and Android versions of the MyRussound app, such as the new user-friendly launch screen, quick access to Preview Mode, the always visible track time indicator for streaming audio sources.
