Bang & Olufsen has issued a software update for its wireless home speakers that enables them to connect with the brand's classic product portfolio.

The Beolink update makes a generation of products across decades, including iconic loudspeakers, music systems and turntables from the 1980's, compatible with its modern wireless range, allowing them to work seamlessly together.

This includes intuitive features like One Touch to Music, which allows users to play music without a smartphone from a combination of devices, whether new or old. The brand says the firmware marks a significant step in upcoming software upgrades planned for 2022.

Bang & Olufsen was an early pioneer of multiroom audio, through its Beolink initiative.

“Bang & Olufsen first invented multiroom 40 years ago and we’re pleased to announce our continuation of expertise in this field with our new software update that makes products launched decades apart work seamlessly together,” says Christoffer Poulsen, SVP of Product Management & Brand Partnering. “Beolink Multiroom is built for the future and enables all our network enabled products to be seamlessly connected, played and controlled together across rooms.”
