Hello Squeezebox Fans,
I’m Ariel, director of products for Logitech UE, and I’d like to take a moment to provide some additional explanation about our transition from Logitech Squeezebox to Logitech UE Smart Radio.
First, we want you to know that Logitech values you, and we will actively support the service in its current form, so you can continue to enjoy the Squeezebox experience you love.
All of you who own a Logitech Squeezebox Radio will have the option to upgrade to the Logitech UE Smart Radio platform, and take advantage of the new and improved software and mobile apps. This upgrade is completely optional, and those that don’t want to alter their Logitech Squeezebox experience will not be required to. If you are a mixed Squeezebox household, I wanted to make sure you knew that while the Logitech UE Smart Radio can play alongside existing Logitech Squeezebox products, it will operate and be controlled separately.
Also, we will continue to provide troubleshooting and support for Logitech Squeezebox users at http://www.logitech.com/support/speakers-audio. The current mysqueezebox.com website and Squeezebox Controller Mobile App will continue to work with existing Logitech Squeezebox devices. The new uesmartradio.com website and Logitech UE Smart Radio Controller App is designed for Logitech UE Smart Radios, as well as those who upgrade from a Logitech Squeezebox Radio.
If you have additional questions we encourage you to visit the Logitech forums and pose the question there. We actively monitor this site and respond to questions as they arise there.
We appreciate your passion for this platform, and hope you continue to love Squeezebox. We are hopeful that once people experience the Logitech UE Smart Radio for themselves, they will love it as much as you love your Squeezebox.
