New version of the HEOS app – Comprehensive update of the streaming platform

Masimo Consumer promises that the latest HEOS app, and therefore the central interface of the HEOS streaming platform, will put music even more centre stage. According to the manufacturer, the focus was once again primarily on user feedback.

Story Highlights
  • Masimo Consumer is now delivering a comprehensive visual and functional update for the HEOS streaming platform in the form of the new HEOS app.

Masimo Consumer announces a comprehensive update of the HEOS app and thus the entire HEOS streaming platform. The aim is to put music centre stage even more than before, providing users with an intuitive solution that allows them to enjoy music throughout their home at the touch of a button, with all Denon or Marantz solutions compatible with HEOS Built-in, as Masimo Consumer explains.

With the latest version of the HEOS app, the company is pursuing its proven strategy of providing music lovers with a seamless listening experience by consistently developing and constantly improving the HEOS streaming platform.

HEOS Built-in Technology – The streaming platform at Marantz and Denon

HEOS Built-in Technology has been the basis for streaming at the Denon and Marantz brands for years. This platform can be found in wireless speakers, soundbar systems, stereo network receivers and even AV receivers.

Based on this streaming platform, the user can thus realise flexible solutions that enable music playback throughout the entire home, whereby up to 64 devices can be used in one system and controlled centrally via the HEOS app.

With the latest update, the HEOS app will now have a modernised user interface, intuitive navigation with numerous exciting new features, making it even more attractive.

Revised user interface

The HEOS app has been given a new look, as Masimo Consumer promises. The new, user-friendly design ensures more intuitive navigation and looks clearer and more modern overall. Instead of the previous home screen, users now have a so-called Music Hub at their disposal. With the new “Currently playing” display at the bottom of the screen, users can also keep an eye on the music currently playing anywhere in the app.

Optimised home screen as a music hub

The redesigned home screen acts as a personal music hub, providing direct access to recently listened tracks, favourite music and preferred content from music services. In addition, users can now create their own HEOS playlists with their personal favourite songs and combine content from different streaming platforms to suit their mood.

Universal music search

Searching for songs on different platforms used to be extremely time-consuming, as Masimo Consumer admits. With the new, universal music search, finding songs should be child’s play, as all streaming platforms and personal libraries can now be searched simultaneously.

Wide range of other improvements

In addition to a new look and new features, the HEOS app update also brings significant functional improvements. The developers at Masimo Consumer have worked hard to optimise numerous aspects of the user experience, including accessibility features, robust wireless surround technology, enhanced login security, uninterrupted playback, improved in-app controls, excellent audio synchronisation and seamless in-app messaging, as the manufacturer promises.

Prices and availability

The new update to the HEOS streaming platform is of course available to all users free of charge in the form of the new HEOS app. This can be found either in the Google PLAY Store for Google Android or in the Apple App Store for Apple iOS.

Getting to the point

Masimo Consumer describes the latest HEOS app as a comprehensive update of the HEOS Built-in Streaming Technology and thus the streaming platform of the Denon and Marantz brands, because it puts music even more centre stage. The company promises that this will allow users even more intuitive operation.
