Updating the system software (video included)

Software updates sometimes become available to improve the performance of your system. To update your software, follow these steps:

Make sure your SoundLink® Air system is connected to your Wi-Fi network and that there is an internet connection. The Wi-Fi indicator on the front panel should be solid blue

Wi-Fi indicator

On the remote, press and hold MUTE for 10 seconds while watching the Wi-Fi indicator


If the Wi-Fi indicator double-blinks green twice, you can release the MUTE button: the system software is up to date and the system returns to the previous operating mode


If the Wi-Fi indicator starts quickly blinking green, release the MUTE button: a software update is necessary and the software starts downloading. The Wi-Fi indicator continues blinking until the download is finished. While the software update is being installed, the Wi-Fi indicator glows solid green for three seconds followed by a double blink. This pattern repeats until the installation is finished. At the end of the installation, the system emits a tone and automatically restarts. After restart, the system will automatically connect to your Wi-Fi network again

Note: a software update can take a few minutes to install.


CAUTION: Do not remove power from the SoundLink® Air system while updating the system software.

Note: If the Wi-Fi indicator starts blinking red, a system error has occurred. Contact Bose Customer Service for assistance.
