Jawbone JAMBOX software UPDATE: Enhanced speakerphone, silent mode, & Android Companion app
Our friends over at Jawbone recently let us know about an all new v2.2 update for their SmartSpeakers! Yes we’re talking about the JAMBOX & all New BIG JAMBOX. Both available for purchase at retailers worldwide as well as jawbone.com/speakers.
The new JAMBOX 2.2 software update from Jawbone is a free download available on Jawbone’s MyTALK platform. As a SmartSpeaker, JAMBOX continues to get better with time, and this latest software update further enriches your experience. Here’s an overview of the new features:
- Enhanced speakerphone: The JAMBOX 2.2 software update makes JAMBOX’s speakerphone “Type 1” compliant for even crisper and clearer calls.
- Jawbone Companion for Android app: With the new update, JAMBOX supports our popular and free app, Jawbone Companion for Android (already available on BIG JAMBOX and Jawbone ERA and ICON headsets). Hear alerts for upcoming meetings while listening to music on JAMBOX, and dial in—passcode and all—with a single touch of a button. Download the app here.
- New Silent Mode: When you’re at the office or putting the kids to bed, you may want to stream music without hearing additional prompts, tones and voices. This update includes a new Silent Mode–just hold down the ‘Talk’ & ‘Minus’ buttons while powering JAMBOX on, and you’ll only hear music. To disable, hold down the ‘Talk’ & ‘Plus’ buttons while powering on. Silent Start-Up/Shut-Down is still available by holding down the ‘Minus’ button while powering JAMBOX on or off.
- Pairing, battery reporting and more: We’ve improved overall Bluetooth interoperability and pairing with computers, especially Macs. There are new user interface improvements, including: the LED light on JAMBOX will now dim after the first 10 seconds of audio play, and the JAMBOX low-battery prompts are smarter—starting earlier and specifying how much battery you have left, so you have more time to plug in and charge up before the music powers down.
To get the free software update, simply go to mytalk.jawbone.com, connect your JAMBOX and follow the instructions.
Let me know if you have any questions about JAMBOX and the 2.2 software update. We’re always happy to talk about Jawbone! They’re continuing to innovate with the industries best products. Modern design and enhanced functionality goes a long way! We can’t wait to see what’s next as the company continues to enhance its Headsets & SmartSpeaker family.
