The intention with the Open Beta for Squeezebox is to give all early adopters within the Squeezebox community a chance to access ickStream services and share feedback. The Open Beta for Squeezebox only contains a limited set of all features offered by the ickStream Music Platform, it is however fully functional and it gives you a preview of how streaming services are integrated via ickStream and can be made available to hardware players such as the Logitech Squeezebox.

The Open Beta for Squeezebox is provided as-is and we do not guarantee any specific functionality or suitability for a specific purpose. We do reserve the right to change or withdraw any functionality provided, even completely, at any time. We do not guarantee access to certain services or capabilities until the launch of the first production release.
