Firmware update 2.0.2 for Sony WF-1000XM3

Firmware update 2.0.2 for Sony WF-1000XM3

Sony has released another update for the WF-1000XM3 wireless headset. This makes it 2 updates this month, after the previous update had to be pulled earlier. The new update does bring some features users have been requesting from Sony for some time now. I have listed the changes below.

Benefits and Improvements from the latest update

  • Adds support for Amazon Alexa
  • Adds the ability to adjust the volume using the headphones touch sensor
  • Adds the ability to check the battery level of the charging case using the Sony | Headphones Connect app
  • Improvements in other functions

Previous Benefits and Improvements

The following benefits and improvements are also included in this update.
  • Improves connectivity with iOS
  • Improves other functions
  • Improves connectivity with Windows 10, resolving an issue where on some specific builds of Windows 10, sound would not playback after Bluetooth pairing
  • General performance and stability improvements

It is great to see Sony updating the functions and features of the WF-1000XM3. With the recent release of the Apple Airpods Pro, Sony has some new competition even though some reviews still say Sony provides the better Noise cancellation experience. While I doubt a price drop will occur any time some, I suspect there might be some good deals this Christmas.

The Alexa support is welcomed for those that use it, but I think the touch sensor volume adjustment and the ability to check the charging case battery level are the major benefits with this update.
