WAND speakers feature an automatic over-the-air update system that brings you the latest and greatest features on a continual basis. To verify that your speakers have the most current firmware, open the WAND app, tap on the gear icon associated with a speaker, and take a look at the Host Firmware line. Additionally, you can verify the version of the WAND app itself by launching the app and tapping on the three horizontal lines in the top left corner. Tap on “Settings”, and you should be able to see the version number here.
If, for any reason, your speaker is not showing the latest firmware, here are instructions on how to manually update it.
