  • So the speaker doesn't have any settings?
  • You can change prompt volume, but that's the only item listed (besides viewing device info) on the MS Store page.
  • I want that mag-lev headset holder in the photo.
  • It's a start. I think they need to expand it to cover all their peripherals (keyboard, controllers, etc.) paired with any device and with detailed customizations!
  • Cool, I can add this to my Surface Audio app that manages my Surface headphones, and the Surface Mouse app that manages my Surface Arc Mouse, and the Surface app that covers the Arc Mouse, and the Pens. Maybe someday we can get one app that covers it all.
  • Oh yeah, it's got a modern design, nice icon, is clearly architected to support multiple devices and categories of device, yet it still can't be bothered to support Surface Headphones 2, despite actually advertising Surface accessories on the home page! Missed opportunity!
