  • Display of information on fiber optics

Below you find a complete list and descriptions of the new functions in the latest FRITZ!OS, along with a list of further improvements in this version.


New and improved Features in FRITZ!OS 6.83

Internet

  • NEW: Display of Internet use by guests in the Online Monitor
  • NEW: Guaranteed data rate for home network devices despite intensive use of the guest network
  • NEW: Option for autonomous port sharing (UPnP/PCP) can be enabled for each device

Telephony:

  • NEW: Option to limit the number of outgoing calls to foreign numbers, enabled automatically
  • NEW: Call diversion applicable to all contacts in a telephone book

DECT

  • NEW: Support added for operating CAT-iq 2.0-compliant handsets

Home network

  • NEW: IP address (DHCP) can be changed directly in the device details

Wireless

  • NEW: To improve data transmission, a dual-band wireless device can be set to switch between the 2.4 and the 5 GHz frequency band automatically (band steering)

Smart Home

  • NEW: Display of temperature curve over the last 24h for devices with temperature sensor
  • NEW: Group switching for radiator controls
  • NEW: Switching of the FRITZ!DECT 200/210 smart plug by sounds, like clapping or knocking

MyFRITZ!

  • NEW: New convenience features added to myfritz.box user interface and optimized display on smartphones and tablets (responsive design)

Security

  • NEW: Password for registering an IP telephone with the FRITZ!Box must have at least eight characters. IP telephones with a shorter password will be disabled with this update.
  • NEW: Certain settings and features require additional confirmation by the user where the FRITZ!Box is located

Storage/NAS

  • NEW: FRITZNAS user interface optimized for tablets and smartphones (responsive design)

More wireless LAN speed through band steering The new FRITZ!OS offers a leap of speed for WiFi with band steering. Many smartphones and tablets can transmit data on the 2.4-GHz-band and the 5-GHZ-band. If one band is working at a high capacity, the FRITZ!Box now automatically initiates a band switch. This way resources can be exploited better and data reach their destination faster and without interference. Band steering is possible for all FRITZ!Box models with dual-band Wireless AC+N (FRITZ!Box models 7580, 7490, 7560, 6490, 4040, 3490).

Priorities in WiFi With the FRITZ!OS 6.83 update, users can be sure to surf, stream or chat without interference even if the guest network is highly used. It's up to you to specify which transmission rates you and your guests are entitled to. If the FRITZ!Box owners are not online, the guests can enjoy higher data rates. The new online monitor is also very handy, since it now displays the data rates of the guest access on top of the usual downstream rates for Internet and IPTV.

FRITZ!Fon: additional start screens and night service FRITZ!Fon, the DECT telephone for FRITZ!Box, received new selectable start screens. Users now have their Smart Home products in direct view, making switching even easier. The analog clock displayed in white or black is also new. The new night service dims the display when the brightness in the room falls below a specified value. The possibilities for diverting calls with the FRITZ!Box can now also be applied to any contact in a given telephone book. Plus, the number of outgoing calls can be limited with FRITZ!OS 6.83.

Smart Home: switching on sound The smart plugs FRITZ!DECT 200 and DECT 210 can already be switched automatically at sunrise/sunset or according to an individual schedule via app or phone. Now another option was added: with FRITZ!OS 6.83 an acoustic sensor is activated locally in the smart plug. Lamps or other connected devices will then react to sounds like clapping or knocking. Another innovation is the display of the temperature measured over the last 24 hours in the FRITZ!Box user interface. Starting with FRITZ!OS 6.83, group switching can also be used for the new radiator control FRITZ!DECT 300.

Even better and easier: MyFRITZ! for browser and app Following the fritz.box user interface ? the window to the FRITZ!Box ? with FRITZ!OS 6.83 the user interfaces of the MyFRITZ! service (myfritz.net) and FRITZ!NAS now also appear in a responsive design and adjust to any display size. Using the MyFRITZ!App 2 (for Android) users have convenient access to saved data, their call list or voice messages wherever the are. Users will receive real time notifications via the app about missed calls or new voice messages. With a single swipe you can establish a secure connection to your home network and access your FRITZ!Box and connected devices from on the go. Even Smart Home devices can be operated and switched directly via app or widget.

On the safe side: strong passwords and settings requiring confirmation The configuration of new IP phones and call diversions as well as the saving of backup files is even safer now as a new function implements an additional confirmation that can only be verified where the FRITZ!Box is located (two-factor authentication). Attempts to log in with wrong user data are recorded as an event. On top of this, FRITZ!OS 6.83 makes sure that users assign a password with at least 8 digits when configuring an IP telephone or an IP intercom system via the FRITZ!Box. Numerous other FRITZ!OS 6.83 upgrades provide the FRITZ!Box with the latest security standards. With every large update AVM always advises to install the latest version of FRITZ!OS for optimum security and best network synchronization.

FRITZ! convenience with DECT telephones from other manufacturers With FRITZ!OS 6.83 DECT telephones that support the CAT-iq 2.0 standard offer many convenience features that come with FRITZ! telephony. For example, cordless telephones from other manufacturers can use one or more telephone books in the FRITZ!Box and users can get a quick overview with the call list.

Approve access from the Internet for online games, gaming consoles or IP devices Devices connected to the FRITZ!Box are safe from unauthorized access from the Internet. However, certain applications such as online games or devices like IP cameras or gaming consoles sometimes need to be accessible for others over the Internet. FRITZ!Box users can enable such connections through port sharing. Now it's also possible to allow certain devices to control port sharing automatically. With FRITZ!OS 6.83 all shared ports (IPv4, IPv6, MyFRITZ! or autonomous) can be viewed and configured at once. Users can find an overview of all shared ports with their connected home network devices in the menu at "Internet / Permit Access". Settings for parental controls can also be used with pure IPv6 devices with the new FRITZ!OS 6.80.
