BluOS controller 3.0.0 bugs?

Post by richards » Wed Oct 03, 2018 9:59 am

Updated yesterday my samsung S7 and a samsung S5 to the latest version. (3.0.0)
From both phones we can no longer play the music on the phone. The app no ​​longer sees the music on the SD card.
Also, I can not enter or change data at the Wi-Fi settings.


Do I miss something or do I something wrong?
App already removed and reinstalled. This was not successful.

You are right. Same here, no music from my phone (S8). With the software before 3.0 I could listen to music on my phone.
I checked the settings. Reading music from my phone is set to ON.

Play from phone is gone. Not yet confirmed for good or just temporary. With bluetooth aptX HD I'm not too concerned though.

5 minutes ago my BluOS Android app updated to a new version.
The setting for playing from your phone is now complete gone.
I hope it will come back! I used it often..

Playing the phone is one of the nice things about the bluesound. Everyone in our house used it. It was easy and always worked great. Would find it very annoying if it does not come back. Not everyone has their music online or in a network. The handy thing about music on your phone is that you can listen anywhere but unfortunately no longer through the bluesound.
Very unfortunate this.
I do not want to switch to another player from another brand.
I hope it will come well with bluesound and the app.

Was too buggy/inconsistent/uninformative to fully satisfy my needs. If BluOS can't make it 100 %, better skip it altogether.

Why buggy? I had no problems with it on my Samsung S8. I really hope it will come back in the app!

Albums with FLAC files displayed wrong track numbers: 1001, 1002, 1003, instead of 1, 2, 3. Function couldn't show technical info nor CD/HR/MQA icons. It never felt like play from phone was properly implemented, rather a temporary feature eventually dropped to make way for aptxhd and airplay2.

Thanks for the info. I used it for playing downloaded DJ sets, so I didn't see track number problems or technical info mistakes. But if you use it like you do, I can imagine that you complain about it.

You're right about bluetooth, I could use that. But I just like everything from one app. Not having to connect through bluetooth first and use a third party ap etc.. And I like being able to walk around the house and not being forced to have the phone within a couple of meters of the speaker. Or am I missing something on bluetooth?

+1 Missing this function.

Dont really care if it doesnt show the tech info. Most of the time I know what type of music files I've downloaded to my phone.

Aptx HD is fine and everything, not sure tough if the first pulse mini has this integrated, and even then the bluetooth signal has small hick ups from time to time. So I much prefere to play the album over wifi. Its also less of a time investment switching between a streaming service over wifi, to play 2 song from my phone over bluethoot en then switching again to a streamong service over wifi and so on!

Hope to revive this topic :)
