Hi, I’m Seth Schulte and I’m responsible for driving the software experience and integrating Internet services for the Squeezebox line of products. When I’m not thinking about ways to make the Squeezebox easier to use or scoping out the latest music services, I like to check out all kinds of live music at the many great venues around the Bay Area.
With the new Squeezebox Radio, we’ve launched more than just a cool new piece of hardware. We also launched an entirely new software and Web interface!
A few changes of note:
With a clean new look and feel, Mysqueezebox.com (formerly called SqueezeNetwork) lets you manage player settings, music-service accounts and favorites. You can also directly access the community forums and customer support.
2. App Gallery and My Apps on mysqueezebox.com
The App Gallery gives you the freedom to choose exactly which services you want to see on your Squeezebox player menus – reducing menu clutter and allowing you to get to the content you want more quickly. Whether you want to access Facebook, Flickr or Pandora, there’s an app for you.
3. Faster, simpler setup for all Squeezebox Wi-Fi music players
Account setup is now done directly on the player. Simply follow the on-screen instructions on your player to complete setup. If you’d like to listen to your personal music collection, continue to mysqueezebox.com once you’ve finished setup and download the Squeezebox Server software.
4. New player menus
Existing Squeezebox users may also notice that some of your player menus have changed. We’ve eliminated the Music Services category and introduced the App Gallery and My Apps. Go the App Gallery to see the entire list of music and other services. If you have previously entered login credentials for a service, you don’t need to do a thing — just go to My Apps and select the service you want to use.
We hope you find that these changes make getting to the music you love easier than ever before.
