We always recommend to use the newest software version of the Mr Beam, because an update not only gives you access to the newest features, but it also resolves some problems from the versions in the past. This is why we recommend to check which version you are currently using and also check for updates regularly.

This is how you can proceed in BeamOS 2.0 and higher:

1. Current Software Version

Check which software version you are currently using by looking up the BeamOS version in the settings under "Software Updater".

2. Software Updates

You can also start a software update in this tab. Click on "Check for updates now".

Warning: If your Mr Beam is not connected to the internet, you will always get an "All up to date" message.

If an update is displayed, you can start it directly. The current progress of the update is shown in the small pop-up window.

3. Software update with USB stick 

If your Mr Beam is not connected with the internet, you can update with a USB stick. Please download the newest software version from the download area of our website and copy it to a USB stick and insert it in your Mr Beam. You will find more details about this option in this article.
