Today, Jawbone has released a new firmware update for its Mini Jambox wireless Bluetooth speakers, which allows users to connect it wirelessly so that it can play from two separate Bluetooth devices and when separating the left and right channels the speaker will produce a beautiful stereo sound.
By updating the firmware, two Mini Jambox speakers are connected to one Bluetooth device via unison mode, it will produce much louder sound than a single speaker.
If you want to enable this feature, you should download the latest firmware from Jawbone.com website after which you have to press volume up, volume down and play buttons until you hear a prompt—”searching for another Mini Jambox,” to allow your Mini Jambox speakers to search for other speakers to pair with.
If you want to toggle between the modes, you need to press and hold both volume rockers on any speakers. The device works beautifully, when you play it in stereo mode by assigning each speakers to each sides – right and left.
Travis Bogard, vice president of product management and strategy at Jawbone said in a statement:
Our always-with-you, great-sounding MINI JAMBOX has become social and even more entertaining with Multi Play. It’s the only speaker that delivers this kind of sound quality for its size, letting you enjoy and share all of your favorite audio wherever you are. And now that you can connect your MINI JAMBOX with a friend’s and each control the music from your own phones, it’s the most versatile speaker on the market. Our free firmware update lets you take advantage of the latest functionality without having to buy an entirely new product.
Most important part is, the speakers will allow you to connect two different smartphones or tablets to pair with Jawbone speakers.
The new firmware update 1.3 came from Jawbone after series of request from its user community feedback about allowing them to pair the speakers, as many of the users were using the Mini Jambox out of the home.
