AVM: New beta versions for two Fritz boxes


If you want to try out upcoming functions with your FritzBox before the next firmware update, you should visit the Fritz Laboratory. AVM regularly provides new beta versions for download here. The current laboratory versions have recently appeared for the FritzBox 7530 AX and FritzBox 5530 Fiber. The 7530 AX is thus heading for FritzOS 7.25, which contains new functions and is already available for the 5530. Version 7.25 follows the major update FritzOS 7.20, which the manufacturer released last year.
