Bluesound Players will send a notification for upgrade within 24 hours to the BluOS Controller App* on iOS and Android devices. If no notification is received, please follow the steps below to upgrade your Bluesound Players. 

*Before upgrading, please visit the Apple App Store or Google Play and upgrade the BluOS Controller App to version 1.10.0 or higher for enhanced control features. 


In order to force an upgrade to begin, the option "Check for Upgrade" is available past the "Configure Player" option. This will force the upgrade prompt to occur.

Open the left-hand Navigation Drawer of the BluOS Controller App. Scroll to the bottom and tap Configure Player Check for Upgrade

This will force the upgrade prompt to occur. 


If the Bluesound Player is unable to connect to the internet (wired or wireless) due to poor connectivity or router settings, BluOS 1.10.1 can be downloaded onto a USB storage device and inserted into Bluesound Players to perform an upgrade.

Disconnect the power cord from your Bluesound Player and insert the USB device into the input on the back of the Player.  

While pressing and holding the Play/Pause Button on the Bluesound Player (see further for the PULSE Player), reconnect the power cord and continue to hold the Play/Pause Button for 5 seconds then release. The PULSE requires power before the Play/Pause Button can be pressed to start the upgrade. Reconnect power to the PULSE before pressing and holding the Play/Pause Button as instructed. 

The Bluesound Player will now start to copy the file from the USB device and enter Upgrade Mode. The Play/Pause Button will begin blinking an alternating pattern of green and red to indicate this. 

Once completed, the Bluesound Player should reboot on its own and return to normal functionality. You can now remove the USB device from the back of the Player.
