There is hardly a household with an internet connection that doesn’t have a router lying around, hopefully providing a good network. With some probability it should be one FritzBox Act. Since its market launch in 2004, it has been a real triumph in Germany and since then many new editions have been added to the product range. There are currently completely new functions that the manufacturer AVM now wants to expand to another model.

FritzBox 6591 Cable: New update

Those responsible have it on Twitter announced: A new version of the operating system is now available for the FritzBox 6591 Cable. The FritzOS thus receives an update to version 7.39, which was previously only available for the FritzBoxes 7590 and 7590 AX.

As with the other models, these are currently beta versions. This means that interested parties can download the new version and give AVM feedback on the functionality. Further FritzBox variants are to be added in the future.

AVM would also like to position the following points for the FritzBox 6591 Cable:

  • Better user interface for more convenience
  • WireGuard support for easy establishment of VPN connections
  • Fritzfon learns to speak – caller announcement for calls, alarm clock, appointments
  • Appointment calendar for FritzFon
  • Call forwarding and blocking for numbers not in the phone book
  • Support of external window sensors for window open detection
  • Supplementing the templates with comfort functions (switching WLAN access, switching WLAN guest access, making a phone call, switching the answering machine, sending push mail, calling up the URL)
  • Prioritization of home network devices can be activated in the MyFRITZ!App
  • USB: Support for exFAT formatted storage media

In addition, AVM has either improved or changed numerous other functions. You can find the entire overview and installation instructions for the update directly on their website. The new FritzFon features are available with versions M2, C4, C5 and C6 as well as with the latest handset firmware.

The list of innovations and improvements for the FritzBox 6591 Cable is long. And who knows, maybe one day your router will be able to track your every move.
