ADM (ASUSTOR Data Master) 2.1 Beta covers all ASUSTOR’s NAS series including Series, 2, 3 and 6, expanding the core feature set and adding new apps.

New Core Features include:

  • Bluetooth Support for devices including speakers, keyboards and mice.

New NAS Apps include:

  • Takeasy allows users to download online videos and playlists from sites such as YouTube, Vimeo, YouKu, Tudou and more.

  • Antivirus with automatic virus definition updates and quarantining of infected files.

Other features in ADM 2.1 beta include a new AiMusic iOS and Android app that works with ASUSTOR’s SoundsGood NAS App for streaming music to mobile devices and a Download Helper add-on for Google Chrome and FireFox that allows users to right-click on any download link and then instruct their NAS to download the file for them.
