The platform for UE megablast is garbage!!!
by Otorres2014 on 2020/10/12 16:58
I’ve never seen a program that you can’t connect so simple this thing is a nightmare
Nice graphic, but after that....
by swbronco on 2020/09/24 03:40
Lacks any kind of real logic. No flow to what’s in each of the menu areas. So much potential, but no effort in making the whole interface compelling. Time for a “ Do over”!
App Doesn’t work
by Maria B Brilliant on 2020/09/23 18:48
I spent a lot of money on my Ultimate Ears Mega Boom 3 and I have it on and sitting in front of me and the app keeps saying no device found. When I click help it literally says one sentence of nothing!
Horrible
by Big Mixter on 2020/09/21 21:12
Speakers is great but the app does not pair speakers with wifi. App needs a update.
Crashes when I try to connect it to my Echo
by alexaelectra on 2020/09/10 23:22
As soon as I tap to connect it to my echo this app crashes and can’t finalize the setup. What a joke to pay $250 for an Alexa compatible speaker with an app needed for setup that just crashes - like really?
Missing key Alexa commands
by pocojim on 2020/08/21 18:57
Since this is a Bluetooth music speaker, you’d think it would have standard Alexa commands to control music on paired devices. I have several Echo devices and regularly use Alexa commands such as pair my device, play Bluetooth, pause, resume, next song, etc. None of these are enabled on the Blast! You must connect to Bluetooth manually and use your iPhone/iPad and control music like on any ‘dumb’ Bluetooth speaker. Very disappointing!
One of the Buggiest Apps I’ve ever used
by Xarga22 on 2020/08/18 02:52
I’m surprised by the poor quality of this app coming from a company like Logitech. Set up of a single device wasn’t too much of a problem but after adding a second then a third megablast device the app became unstable in its paired connection. When I removed the frost two and tried to add a third device the system wouldn’t connect. Found the device but then failed to connect to WiFi. Other things in the app are sometimes hit and miss as far as stability goes.
Not a good app.
by LukeMass on 2020/08/11 12:56
It’s just not a good app.
Dumbest app ever invented
by rickycastillo17 on 2020/08/05 00:09
The speaker is good just getting to connect with the app is to much work
THIS IS THE WRONG APP
by Mr sir from tf2 on 2020/07/29 22:18
there is another app that looks just like this which is the actual one for your speaker
Fixed??? 07/20/2020
by Nfhfffvnkdhjynd on 2020/07/24 16:03
I am happy that you guys fixed this i can finally use the 800$ in megablast speakers i spent properly i was very upset before. Still not perfect but atleast it works
iPhone 11 Pro
by clintl84 on 2020/07/22 20:39
Got the new iPhone 11 Pro and now the app disconnects and forgets WiFi. Please update!
Talk about clunky
by Playerextraordinaire on 2020/07/21 16:42
This app is pretty much worthless since it hasn’t been updated to work with IOS updates. Can’t get through it to find any functionality. It asks me if I want to set it up, even though it’s already set up, or paired. Cannot figure out how to get Alexa to work.
App is broken
by I Really Need A Nickname? on 2020/07/13 00:26
Tells me Bluetooth is off, when it’s on. Worthless.
No joining
by Scottm875 on 2020/07/10 20:38
I’m sure this would be a wonderful if it recognized my network and I could connect my WiFi. I guess not.
App doesn't do much
by Bob Allison on 2020/07/09 17:39
Would be cool if there were features like Sony's headphone app, equalizer, concert modes, etc.
trash
by eon salaza on 2020/07/06 03:08
it’s either the app or my phone or the speaker. but this is complete trash my jbl connected no problem and i didn’t need a app for it. whatever it is iphone 11 can’t connect to this speaker and the app is pointless.
It’s okay.
by TravisTragedy on 2020/07/01 02:43
It’s a great concept, but I hate that there’s barely any settings for Alexa and I can’t use any other music service but Spotify or amazon music unless I’m actually using the Bluetooth feature. If I ask Alexa on the speaker to play songs on Apple Music, she says it isn’t supported on this device but I have Apple Music connected to my amazon/Alexa account.
Needs a newer update
by Steven Hernandez on 2020/06/28 18:46
I recently got the Megablast and it is having a few glitches when pairing two together. A new software update is needed ASAP.
Pointless app
by TheScUbA69 on 2020/06/13 17:38
What a pointless app, my phone is connected and playing music yet the app can’t set up/find the speaker...
Fail
by lxjfgsdkjafgjsahdgcfjks on 2020/06/07 23:46
Said my speaker needed to be updated. Made me email myself a link. Clicked on the link and it downloaded a dmg file. On my iOS device. Any way to update my speaker without a laptop? Apparently not. Complete fail. Last time I buy a UE product.
App won’t connect to WiFi
by M02yad on 2020/05/29 17:23
The app keeps asking me to setup when I do it says failed try again ... after doing it couple of times it says connect to WiFi then it fails and takes me back to setup page
Needs work
by ap.reviewer101 on 2020/05/28 00:52
Definitely agree with other reviewers, this app needs a lot of work. Im having issues connecting the speakers to WiFi or even group speakers. I’m down to only use Bluetooth. It’s so disappointing. Can we please get an update???
Dejaron de Funcionar
by Chin1971 on 2020/05/27 21:23
Compre 2 Megablast con la idea de emparejarlos y poder usarlos juntos, pero lamentablemente muy pocas veces consiguen emparejarse. He reseteado y reconfigurado los altavoces en varias ocasiones, pero siguen sin funcionar. Es frustrante. Si pudiese devolvería hoy mismo los altavoces.
Make the app to turn off the speaker
by Gsrboy171 on 2020/05/25 12:57
I can’t even turn off the speaker with the app.
2020 AWFUL!!!
by maria6758 on 2020/05/13 18:23
IF I COULD GIVE THIS ZERO STARS I WOULD!!!! First it kept saying it found my blast and then lost it. Then every time it would have me click blast the app would shut down. I restarted my phone. Redownloaded the app. And now can’t get my new speaker to get up... how exciting 🤩😍 this is ridiculous and return ur speaker don’t even waste your time because you won’t be able to connect it anyways
Unable to update
by Steph_RN_BSN_MSN-AGNP on 2020/04/20 22:03
The app goes into a loop & then errors out when checking for updates. Please fix have iPhone X w current iOS installed. I believe this is keeping me from full functionality of speaker. If I though the reviews stating this glitch... I would not purchased. The speaker has great sound quality... software awful! Stephanie
Grouping doesn’t work
by schang12 on 2020/04/20 19:29
I purchased multiple speakers with the idea that I could connect them both at the same time as advertised. While I can play music from them individually, the app gets stuck when trying to pair the two of them and it never works.
It won’t update the speaker
by Moistunicycle66 on 2020/04/03 20:40
So when I open the app I put in the WiFi password then it was searching for a update for the speaker and it found an update just it wouldn’t download and it won’t let me get any further in to the app to set up Alexa or anything if this gets fixed i will rate the app higher
Pointless
by DantheEagle on 2020/03/28 17:12
What is the point of this app. Why do I need an app to connect my speaker. This is dumb. Plus the speaker doesn’t understand me more than half the time. It’s ridiculous. I will not be buying another one of these speakers. Period.
Doesn’t work
by Mono&Jeanette on 2020/03/23 04:11

iPhone 11 iOS 13.3.1
by TK_200 on 2020/03/20 12:26
Errors out on Wifi search, no longer finds speaker in select screen to continue setup after restarting app. Ridiculous proprietary plug. Can’t believe I fell for UE speakers again after having so much trouble with my 2 Megabooms. Blast + a Power Up bundle is being returned and I’ll never buy another UE product.
Needs some attention please
by Sullivan99 on 2020/03/18 18:00
Stuck on connecting to WiFi - blast won’t update firmware
Useless App
by vodan2 on 2020/02/29 01:32
Two megablast speakers wouldn’t double up on iPad. So useless.
I WANT MY MONEY BACK!!!!!!!
by boggeddown on 2020/02/08 17:34
I got anew I phone 11. Now I can’t use this speaker. I’ve tried everything with no luck. HOW ABOUT GIVING A SOLUTION !!!!!!!
Buggy speaker
by dhh he. on 2020/02/03 16:40
I’m so sick of this speaker bugging out, not connecting of dis connecting. At the moment, I am unable too even get the ultimate ears app to read the speaker. It’s like it doesn’t even exist, which is disappointing when considering how expensive the speaker is and that I’ve only had it over a year....
Not good
by Svrbford on 2020/01/18 19:11
No point in having this app unless its for updates.. 1. They need to add the power button on here so i dont have to walk to the speaker to cut it on. 2. Make it so i can pair it with the BOOM 3. Just update this app already. Please My ue boom app is better. I can control alarms, power on/off, settings etc.
Zero stars
by Hunna Boy on 2020/01/16 17:43
Does not connect. Just wasted hour of my life.
Opción en español hace falta
by j3sus99 on 2020/01/16 01:57
Muy buena aplicación pero hace falta la opción en español
Very limited features
by Bleach 3000 on 2020/01/12 00:58
Very limited features cannot Power from the app
Avoid at all costs
by TheTruthLivesHere on 2020/01/06 19:48
Pairing is a hassle, buggy, and intermittently disconnects. There is clearly no tech support for this product as the last software update was released over 6 months ago. Nothing is being done to solve these issues. Take your money elsewhere.
Used to work
by Que-Key on 2020/01/04 04:36
Got the new iPhone11 pro max and it tells me not supported and can’t connect, but connects but the app itself doesn’t seem to work with it and doesn’t sense it’s connected and sometimes disconnects.... maybe an update needs to be made for the updated phones.... before it was 5 stars cuz it gave no problem and I was able to customize the settings
So bad..
by BPSherlock on 2019/12/31 20:44
I like the speaker but this app is useless. I can’t get it to connect to my WiFi and it just drops my Bluetooth connection. If you connect Bluetooth the good ole fashioned way. The speaker is great.
App Works Perfectly
by RazorQueen Ulka on 2019/12/29 23:48
The app works just fine. The setup went perfectly at every step including the speaker getting a firmware update in the process. I was shocked at the number of bad reviews. I ran the app setup on an iPhone X with iOS 13.3 as well as an iPhone 6 with iOS 12.4. Every function in the app works fine including grouping speakers. Also the range is as good as my long range headphones and I’ve gotten hours of use with a group of speakers and not one glitch. Maybe it’s people with low performance or cheap hardware phones. IDK.
Amazing speaker! Terrible app
by ddoralisa on 2019/12/28 22:48
Firstly, I’m in love with my speaker. But the app won't connect with my device. I tried on other phones as well to no avail. It keeps disconnecting and/or saying that no device is found.
NEED TO READ THIS IF YOU ARE HAVING TROUBLESHOOTING ISSUES
by Dittstar on 2019/12/27 04:26
I just ordered a megablast on a third party site and had trouble connecting it to the app and therefore WiFi. Realized the speaker was running 1.6 something which is like the update in 2017. YOU NEED TO UPDATE THE SPEAKER VIA COMPUTER BEFORE CONNECTING TO THE APP. I don’t have the link, but it is in the FAQS for this app online. Update it via usb through your computer and it should have no problem after. Would give it 5 stars, but this is a hindrance to others as it seems. Hope I saved ya some frustration
Not working
by Drunkinscuba on 2019/12/26 20:32
The app does not connect to my speaker
Won’t connect to WiFi
by 🎩🎩🎩🎩🎩🎩🗽🗽🗽🗽🗽 on 2019/12/25 23:42
Can’t do anything relating to Alex’s because the app won’t connect to the WiFi. It rarely shows the WiFi’s connection around and when it does it says unable to connect to the network. There is no use to my mega blast if I can’t use Alex’s I might as-well of bought the one below the mega blast
Poor execution
by InsaneJamez on 2019/12/25 19:40
My app hardly works, crashes a lot and I could never pair 2 speakers together I always get errors. Very very good poor execution. Please fix
Wow
by SageGod23 on 2019/12/17 18:53
I have been using apps in the App Store for maybe around 7 years. I have never left a review for any of the 200+ apps I have used. I am here today to let you know this is by far the worst app of all time. Nothing works. I have been trying to pair a $200 speaker for probably upwards of 2 hours. Return that speaker if you purchased it
Ehhhh
by AlexKisner on 2019/12/09 18:34
I just got this speaker for a steal. The blast on the website is listed at $179.99 and I found it new on amazon for $85 and it came with the charging doc. The speaker sounds great and connect to my phone perfectly just like any Bluetooth device. But when I went to use this app the set up simple did not work. At all. Right out of the box I followed the video UE has on YouTube of how to set up your BLAST or MEGABLAST. I follow every step exactly and when it came to checking for software updates it said failed. So I ignored it and continued on since my speaker did not update it refused to connect to wifi after. Now I can get the speaker connected to the app but when I try to connect to wifi it simply disconnects itself and I can not get past that. Besides the fact I didn't buy the speaker for the Amazon Alexa feature. I bought this speaker for the quality and durability of the speaker itself and for the price I got it for it was a steal. But if you are deciding between the BLAST/MEGABLAST or the BOOM/MEGABOOM save yourself the money if you can’t find a deal like me because you wont be able to use the features anyway.
Return the blast if you still can!!
by Robinanyc on 2019/12/05 01:57
Speaker is fine and mobile alexa is appealing. BUT You cannot use in a group with more than one other alexa Instructions and app are lacking as is apparent from the overall rating. Instructions don't explain how to put on alexa app and it is not intuitive. App is all flashy photos, poor navigation, and no summary of steps. I spent 1/2 hour on phone w help desk and they decided i probably had a lemon and should return. I had another one to give as gift and it did set up properly. Either the first one was a lemon or i made the mistake of multitasking and somehow missed a step.
Connection to WiFi
by linlilin1991 on 2019/12/02 03:23
Cannot connect to WiFi with the good credentials. And typing numbers in a row is a pain because it automatically goes back to the alphabet keyboard.
No good
by almighty paulie on 2019/11/30 20:43
Utter most trash app need to be improved significantly
App will mot connect with bluetooth iOS13
by OTR-Fan on 2019/11/25 19:51
App was always of dubious value. Now, it won’t even connect to the speaker via Bluetooth! Now all I have is an expensive tube paperweight. Am running latest iOS (13.3.3), and yes, I did make sure to turn on Bluetooth under BLAST in settings. Somewhere I think a class-action is brewing. This shouldn’t be any different tha pairing a set of eaphones. Get up to speed, guys!
Not updated for iOS 13
by CyberData4 on 2019/11/13 23:43
Logitech is terrible at supporting their products. No updates for this premium speaker app in four months. Bugs persist. Yet no update. Paid 300$ for the megablast. I expect better software support.
Buggy
by tmz99 on 2019/11/04 04:47
-Keeps asking me to connect speakers to Bluetooth - yet they are connected to my phone via Bluetooth. -sometimes a small speaker icon appears, sometimes the one for the speaker I actually have - random.
update
by nataliee_sus on 2019/11/02 19:10
this app needs a new look and a update
Complete Mess
by Paul Rammer on 2019/11/02 17:17
I am extremely disappointed with these speakers. Although they sound good, their functionality is a showstopper, literally and a WASTE Of MY $. I can’t believe that the Megablast team at Logitec would stand next to this piece of crap! I’ve been a loyal MEGABOOM consumer since the beginning owning seven over the generations. So I purchased FOUR of the MegaBlast on that good faith and was screwed. Here’s the issues: 1) connectivity. Near impossible for all of them to connect. I’ve worked tirelessly for HOURS setting up with WIFI then eliminating all of the Bluetooth except the primary speaker. Tried all Bluetooth. No Bluetooth and all wireless. The variations continue. Best is One speaker WIFI and Bluetooth and rest only WIFI. Still super spotty and the connection issues come in phases, not sure what would drive the waves of issues. My business depends on reliable sound! 2) App doesn’t shift to portraits mode. iPads with keyboards only sit in portrait so this is just annoying. 3) Music pauses when speaker 2, 3 or 4 connects in sequence on Bluetooth 4) Have there been updates to this app or speaker? I’m guessing Harmony is not investing in this speaker compared to the megablast Costco carries. -I’m recalling the significant improvement to MEGABOOM app when it was updated a year or so ago, Made connecting so much easier. -Needs an “All speakers power on and connect” option like MEGABOOM now offers. I need help with this. It’s been a total disaster and wast of $1,200!
Review of app only!
by atocra on 2019/10/30 18:30
Speaker is a 8/10 The Alexa support is like Alexa lite. It’s not a full functioning Alexa My biggest complaint is the inability to stream Apple Music via WiFi App is a 1/5 No remote power on like with the mega boom Difficult to pair with other mega blasts Unable to pair with megabooms I never use this app. There is no reason to. Speaker works as intended without it
App will not connect
by DJStormy on 2019/10/23 20:51
Thought it was my phone, running a Beta iOS but it seems to be the app itself. It seems to connect to my Blast but it won’t connect to the WiFi during setup. It just keeps spinning and then it asks you to reconnect. Basically the app is useless.
Rubbish - just rubbish really.
by JGM NYC on 2019/10/18 23:13
This is a $200 speaker, supposedly you can Connect multiple speakers, you can’t. They connect and they disconnect at will and ruin the party. Get a grip UE, this is bad and they are all coming back to you. Massive disappointment.
Mega boom is the way to go
by ue lover on 2019/10/14 04:40
This is kinda crap compared to the mega boom they are definitely the way to go
Biggest lie of the century
by Ajdi Europe Albania Sarande on 2019/10/13 07:20
This is the most useless app ever. It doesn't do anything as they say. What a scam
App is OK but...
by Markie 61301 on 2019/10/12 15:06
I love my UE Blast. The sound is great for its size. However, the UE have yet to have native support for Apple Music. You can play Apple Music via Bluetooth, but you cannot play Apple Music content via Alexa (although Amazon Alexa does have Apple Music support). This makes Alexa technology in UE Blast about 80% useless for me. Therefore rendering me to not need this app. So much for “built for Apple” claim on the box. Update - I spoke to their customer service team about using Alexa while on LTE. They said I need a second device (wifi hotspot) to connect the Blast to so Alexa could work when on the go. This means you have to carry another device to keep using Alexa — are you for real??? Update - I dont think they’re reading these comments at al! This is the last Logitech product I will own.
Update
by supreme_cali on 2019/10/03 13:52
The app needs a on and off button
I wish I could give 0 star
by Nyctomi on 2019/09/21 16:23
Horrible app! Not even deserve 1 star. Connection problems, all the time. Wish I would have never bought it.
Worst App Ever!
by Genie Ireneee on 2019/09/16 20:50
I just purchased a mega blast speaker and had it paired to mega boom and it played. Then it told me I should not be able to pair to the boom system. So like an idiot, I downloaded mega blast today and pairing has not worked. Period. I’m done with sham apps. This needs fixing! And before you say it, I went to the troubleshooting site and it was worthless. Contact me.
Horrible App
by DJCT2009 on 2019/09/15 11:20
Agree with other reviewers that this app needs to be fixed. I should have read app reviews before buying multiple speakers. 1. Difficult to connect speakers and then when you do they disconnect for no apparent reason. 2. It appears if you set-up on your phone and you try to do anything on your phone, I.e. save a song, search for info, it could disconnect. 3. Your device with app must be close, actually very close, to speaker to work and it should be near a power source as drains battery on device. 4. Connection range is shorter then advertised. 5. App only shows name of first speaker or parent speaker. When the addition speakers show up on app connection page there is no name so you are not sure which speaker connected. If one drops then you need to unconnected all and reconnect which means moving them all close together l. Greet way to kill the party. Luv the speakers. Luv the concept of the app but it need many improvements. Holding out hope developers are reading the reviews and working on fixes.
Set up
by Nekters on 2019/09/14 18:10
The setup process failed several times.
Umm I think it can do better🤔
by AU meme lord =D (-_-) on 2019/09/04 05:03
I think you folks can improve.but I still can’t do updates .and by what the other people that reviewed it Seems as though they to have problems with it.and the bugs could be fixed and/or Found .so for the sake of the meme lord and the other fellow peeps plz Just at lest try to fixing the bugs and the update problems so peeps like me and others don’t give yea one 🌟 ((a.k.a star)) or occasionally da 4 🌟 ((again a.k.a star)) but mostly da 3 and 1 🌟((once again a star)) also so we can FINally ((pun intended)) listen to remixes,jazz,rock and what not. :T
ABSOLUTELY USELESS APP
by apocalypseofthenorm on 2019/08/27 00:06
Won’t even pair to speaker or connect to WIFI. So speaker is pretty much just s speaker. SAVE YOUR MONEY WHAT A WASTE!!!!
Wonderboom
by bull shit1234 on 2019/08/17 17:47
This app fit it last summer now says not capatable.
Somehow got worse
by mouldy1234 on 2019/08/16 18:11
Loved UE since the original ue boom. Ue boom 2 was great, synced two at a time perfectly. Somehow the blast + its app is awful, Bluetooth is just poor, it’s impossible to pair 2 blasts without having one of them constantly cut out or have distorted output (bought the speaker yesterday). Sad, I miss the old ue’s I had.
good but I have some ideas
by Thunder Boom on 2019/08/10 15:00
i'm only giving this a four star rating because of the lack of Alexa feature sometimes, first ad the ability to change your wake word, second add the start and end of request sounds, and third ad the multi room music ability meaning the built-in Alexa multi room music ability
Updates don’t help
by LockdownD🔒🤫 on 2019/08/07 17:18
I used to be able to use all my speakers for the party Up feature and now half of them don’t connect to the app once they update it and updated the speakers. UE PLEASE FIX THIS!!
App not working
by qnm7 on 2019/08/02 23:28
Was the app recently updated or something? It says bluetooth not connected. Alexa works but the speaker won’t connect with my laptop anymore. Please fix this.
Useless
by brianj509 on 2019/08/02 04:53
Pretty much the app is useless dont waste your time with the fancy $200+ speaker cuz you wont be able to use all the cool features due to there being practically no customer support just some useless tips that dont offer an option to ask or talk to anyone so if your issue isn’t listed your screwed, cant setup my megablast cuz the update keeps failing
Works well if the speaker software is updated
by daniel9478 on 2019/08/01 18:20
I recently got a Blast and immediately tried to set it up using the iOS app as suggested by the directions in the box. Just like others have said, it seemed to get stuck, spinning forever. It seems as though the problem is that out of the box it couldn’t connect reliably to the phone via Bluetooth. Based on this, I tried it on my daughter’s cheap Android phone with that version of the Ultimate Ears app. The Blast had no problem connecting through the app there and was able to connect to our WiFi and update itself. After the update, I returned to the iPhone and tried that version of the app again. Sure enough, everything works great now. While it shouldn’t be required to jump through hoops to update the Blast firmware, it seemed to resolve the issue. Hopefully this helps someone else out who may be considering a new Blast.
Simple App - It Gets the Job Done
by Wild Horse George on 2019/07/30 23:22
I'm not sure why there are 1 and 2 star reviews of this app. I had my Ultimate Ears Mega Blast connected to my iPad via Bluetooth in no time at all. The WiFi connection was almost as quick. Connecting to my Amazon Alexa account was easy. Adjusting the EQ was just as easy.
Letdown
by AMS412 on 2019/07/23 00:51
I upgraded from the megaboom and boy do I miss it. Simply being able to remotely turn it on would have saved this app and the megablast. 1 year now waiting for an updated app.
Absolute Garbage
by NicoM on 2019/07/20 23:11
Hardware and software are both terrible. Clearly outsourced the programming to India. NOTHING works.
Terrible app
by mattisimo88 on 2019/07/18 20:01
The worst garbage app. Doesn’t even connect. A company that doesn’t f’ing get it.
Pathetic. Literally the worst pairing process I’ve ever seen.

Your app literally doesn’t work, can barely recognize the speaker and loses connection almost immediately. What is going on here? Fix it.

Speaker is AWESOME but the app is not
by MBcocobolo on 2019/06/29 21:33
I can only use the Blast with one iphone. I cannot use it with any other iphones in the house hold family. It only works with one device. Even after trouble shooting.... I should be allowed to use on more than one device. Other than that, the speaker is fabulous!
Annoying
by Janeadr on 2019/06/19 00:43
Connected fine for a while but now it won’t connect at all
Horrible
by Jarner on 2019/06/17 19:22
Recently bought the Megablast. Right out of the box I had trouble:the speaker wouldn’t work. After spending a considerable amount of time with Support it finally started working. Soon there after it quit again. This time Support could not fix it in that it wouldn’t consistently pair with either my iPhone or iPad. I was told that because it did work initially, after help from Support, they couldn’t help me anymore and suggested I contact Apple for help. I have owned several boom/blast speakers without any trouble. The way Support treated my problem I won’t ever buy another UE Speaker again. My next step is to take the speaker back to Best Buy and the geek squad try to help me out. Wish me luck.
Won’t work :/
by AureyJC on 2019/06/13 05:12
Speaker won’t connect to WiFi. I keeps saying it lost connection. I guess it’s just a Bluetooth speaker and that’s it. If you want this for the Alexa functionality, I would recommend you look elsewhere. Disappointing to say the least.
Needs fixing
by HONCHO762 on 2019/06/05 01:09
I would like to turn it in and off from app be able to to see battery life from home screen at less.

Connecting Blast to WiFi
by Trish McA on 2019/05/28 00:31
I had the same problem as Brad until I read the FAQ’s and realized that the Bluetooth/pairing light on top of the Blast wasn’t on. Once I turned it on, the setup worked smoothly. We’re very happy with the sound quality.
Terrible product
by unhappywithyourspeaker on 2019/05/27 23:02
Set up is impossible returning to Best Buy today. Works on Bluetooth that’s it, no wonder it was half off, pure junk.
Terrible app
by BigJoeD on 2019/05/25 18:48
Like previous review, the speaker sounds pretty good but the setup and app connecting to WiFi is a nightmare.
A high end Bluetooth speaker - only !
by BradJMellon on 2019/05/22 21:06
What a frustrating product ! The speaker has terrific sound when connected to Bluetooth - but that’s all it will do. Download the miserable app and got stuck in a loop trying to connect to WiFi. Apparently the speaker needs a software update. Can only get an update once connected to the app via WiFi. Cant connect to the app via WiFi because it needs a software update ! Tried downloading update on MAC desktop - MAC wont open the file ‘no mountable file systems’. The speaker is probably a good product but the app and support are 3rd world !
Cross Compatibility
by j.c65 on 2019/05/21 06:32
I have spent quite a but of money on my UE products but for some reason they don’t find it important to keep their customers happy by making their products compatible with each other. I own a MegaBoom and a MegaBlast and although they can pair with multiple speakers within their respective “families”, they will not double up outside of that. Boom doubles with Booms, Blasts double with Blasts, but Booms won’t double with Blasts. Soooooo stupid!!!!!! Also, the Blast app doesn’t have a function to power the speaker on and off from within the app.
Nope
by JoshuaBNGA on 2019/05/09 22:28
Just got this home, I can connect via Bluetooth to my phone, but as soon as I try to connect through this crappy app it says disconnected, try again. The speaker is on and sitting beside my phone. I’ve uninstalled and re-installed. I’ve force restarted my phone several times, I’ve turned the speaker on and off. Nothing makes it connect. The help section in the app tells you to connect the speaker... thanks y’all!
One of the Buggiest Apps I’ve ever used
by Xarga22 on 2020/08/18 02:52
I’m surprised by the poor quality of this app coming from a company like Logitech. Set up of a single device wasn’t too much of a problem but after adding a second then a third megablast device the app became unstable in its paired connection. When I removed the frost two and tried to add a third device the system wouldn’t connect. Found the device but then failed to connect to WiFi. Other things in the app are sometimes hit and miss as far as stability goes.
App Works Perfectly
by RazorQueen Ulka on 2019/12/29 23:48
The app works just fine. The setup went perfectly at every step including the speaker getting a firmware update in the process. I was shocked at the number of bad reviews. I ran the app setup on an iPhone X with iOS 13.3 as well as an iPhone 6 with iOS 12.4. Every function in the app works fine including grouping speakers. Also the range is as good as my long range headphones and I’ve gotten hours of use with a group of speakers and not one glitch. Maybe it’s people with low performance or cheap hardware phones. IDK.
Horrible App
by DJCT2009 on 2019/09/15 11:20
Agree with other reviewers that this app needs to be fixed. I should have read app reviews before buying multiple speakers. 1. Difficult to connect speakers and then when you do they disconnect for no apparent reason. 2. It appears if you set-up on your phone and you try to do anything on your phone, I.e. save a song, search for info, it could disconnect. 3. Your device with app must be close, actually very close, to speaker to work and it should be near a power source as drains battery on device. 4. Connection range is shorter then advertised. 5. App only shows name of first speaker or parent speaker. When the addition speakers show up on app connection page there is no name so you are not sure which speaker connected. If one drops then you need to unconnected all and reconnect which means moving them all close together l. Greet way to kill the party. Luv the speakers. Luv the concept of the app but it need many improvements. Holding out hope developers are reading the reviews and working on fixes.
NEED TO READ THIS IF YOU ARE HAVING TROUBLESHOOTING ISSUES
by Dittstar on 2019/12/27 04:26
I just ordered a megablast on a third party site and had trouble connecting it to the app and therefore WiFi. Realized the speaker was running 1.6 something which is like the update in 2017. YOU NEED TO UPDATE THE SPEAKER VIA COMPUTER BEFORE CONNECTING TO THE APP. I don’t have the link, but it is in the FAQS for this app online. Update it via usb through your computer and it should have no problem after. Would give it 5 stars, but this is a hindrance to others as it seems. Hope I saved ya some frustration
Missing key Alexa commands
by pocojim on 2020/08/21 18:57
Since this is a Bluetooth music speaker, you’d think it would have standard Alexa commands to control music on paired devices. I have several Echo devices and regularly use Alexa commands such as pair my device, play Bluetooth, pause, resume, next song, etc. None of these are enabled on the Blast! You must connect to Bluetooth manually and use your iPhone/iPad and control music like on any ‘dumb’ Bluetooth speaker. Very disappointing!
It won’t update the speaker
by Moistunicycle66 on 2020/04/03 20:40
So when I open the app I put in the WiFi password then it was searching for a update for the speaker and it found an update just it wouldn’t download and it won’t let me get any further in to the app to set up Alexa or anything if this gets fixed i will rate the app higher
good but I have some ideas
by Thunder Boom on 2019/08/10 15:00
i'm only giving this a four star rating because of the lack of Alexa feature sometimes, first ad the ability to change your wake word, second add the start and end of request sounds, and third ad the multi room music ability meaning the built-in Alexa multi room music ability
Used to work
by Que-Key on 2020/01/04 04:36
Got the new iPhone11 pro max and it tells me not supported and can’t connect, but connects but the app itself doesn’t seem to work with it and doesn’t sense it’s connected and sometimes disconnects.... maybe an update needs to be made for the updated phones.... before it was 5 stars cuz it gave no problem and I was able to customize the settings
Unable to update
by Steph_RN_BSN_MSN-AGNP on 2020/04/20 22:03
The app goes into a loop & then errors out when checking for updates. Please fix have iPhone X w current iOS installed. I believe this is keeping me from full functionality of speaker. If I though the reviews stating this glitch... I would not purchased. The speaker has great sound quality... software awful! Stephanie
Buggy
by tmz99 on 2019/11/04 04:47
-Keeps asking me to connect speakers to Bluetooth - yet they are connected to my phone via Bluetooth. -sometimes a small speaker icon appears, sometimes the one for the speaker I actually have - random.
2020 AWFUL!!!
by maria6758 on 2020/05/13 18:23
IF I COULD GIVE THIS ZERO STARS I WOULD!!!! First it kept saying it found my blast and then lost it. Then every time it would have me click blast the app would shut down. I restarted my phone. Redownloaded the app. And now can’t get my new speaker to get up... how exciting 🤩😍 this is ridiculous and return ur speaker don’t even waste your time because you won’t be able to connect it anyways
App will mot connect with bluetooth iOS13
by OTR-Fan on 2019/11/25 19:51
App was always of dubious value. Now, it won’t even connect to the speaker via Bluetooth! Now all I have is an expensive tube paperweight. Am running latest iOS (13.3.3), and yes, I did make sure to turn on Bluetooth under BLAST in settings. Somewhere I think a class-action is brewing. This shouldn’t be any different tha pairing a set of eaphones. Get up to speed, guys!
Return the blast if you still can!!
by Robinanyc on 2019/12/05 01:57
Speaker is fine and mobile alexa is appealing. BUT You cannot use in a group with more than one other alexa Instructions and app are lacking as is apparent from the overall rating. Instructions don't explain how to put on alexa app and it is not intuitive. App is all flashy photos, poor navigation, and no summary of steps. I spent 1/2 hour on phone w help desk and they decided i probably had a lemon and should return. I had another one to give as gift and it did set up properly. Either the first one was a lemon or i made the mistake of multitasking and somehow missed a step.
Useless
by brianj509 on 2019/08/02 04:53
Pretty much the app is useless dont waste your time with the fancy $200+ speaker cuz you wont be able to use all the cool features due to there being practically no customer support just some useless tips that dont offer an option to ask or talk to anyone so if your issue isn’t listed your screwed, cant setup my megablast cuz the update keeps failing
Wow
by SageGod23 on 2019/12/17 18:53
I have been using apps in the App Store for maybe around 7 years. I have never left a review for any of the 200+ apps I have used. I am here today to let you know this is by far the worst app of all time. Nothing works. I have been trying to pair a $200 speaker for probably upwards of 2 hours. Return that speaker if you purchased it
Worst App Ever!
by Genie Ireneee on 2019/09/16 20:50
I just purchased a mega blast speaker and had it paired to mega boom and it played. Then it told me I should not be able to pair to the boom system. So like an idiot, I downloaded mega blast today and pairing has not worked. Period. I’m done with sham apps. This needs fixing! And before you say it, I went to the troubleshooting site and it was worthless. Contact me.
iPhone 11 iOS 13.3.1
by TK_200 on 2020/03/20 12:26
Errors out on Wifi search, no longer finds speaker in select screen to continue setup after restarting app. Ridiculous proprietary plug. Can’t believe I fell for UE speakers again after having so much trouble with my 2 Megabooms. Blast + a Power Up bundle is being returned and I’ll never buy another UE product.
Won’t connect to WiFi
by 🎩🎩🎩🎩🎩🎩🗽🗽🗽🗽🗽 on 2019/12/25 23:42
Can’t do anything relating to Alex’s because the app won’t connect to the WiFi. It rarely shows the WiFi’s connection around and when it does it says unable to connect to the network. There is no use to my mega blast if I can’t use Alex’s I might as-well of bought the one below the mega blast
Grouping doesn’t work
by schang12 on 2020/04/20 19:29
I purchased multiple speakers with the idea that I could connect them both at the same time as advertised. While I can play music from them individually, the app gets stuck when trying to pair the two of them and it never works.
Avoid at all costs
by TheTruthLivesHere on 2020/01/06 19:48
Pairing is a hassle, buggy, and intermittently disconnects. There is clearly no tech support for this product as the last software update was released over 6 months ago. Nothing is being done to solve these issues. Take your money elsewhere.
Buggy speaker
by dhh he. on 2020/02/03 16:40
I’m so sick of this speaker bugging out, not connecting of dis connecting. At the moment, I am unable too even get the ultimate ears app to read the speaker. It’s like it doesn’t even exist, which is disappointing when considering how expensive the speaker is and that I’ve only had it over a year....
Nice graphic, but after that....
by swbronco on 2020/09/24 03:40
Lacks any kind of real logic. No flow to what’s in each of the menu areas. So much potential, but no effort in making the whole interface compelling. Time for a “ Do over”!
Talk about clunky
by Playerextraordinaire on 2020/07/21 16:42
This app is pretty much worthless since it hasn’t been updated to work with IOS updates. Can’t get through it to find any functionality. It asks me if I want to set it up, even though it’s already set up, or paired. Cannot figure out how to get Alexa to work.
App will not connect
by DJStormy on 2019/10/23 20:51
Thought it was my phone, running a Beta iOS but it seems to be the app itself. It seems to connect to my Blast but it won’t connect to the WiFi during setup. It just keeps spinning and then it asks you to reconnect. Basically the app is useless.
Needs a newer update
by Steven Hernandez on 2020/06/28 18:46
I recently got the Megablast and it is having a few glitches when pairing two together. A new software update is needed ASAP.
Somehow got worse
by mouldy1234 on 2019/08/16 18:11
Loved UE since the original ue boom. Ue boom 2 was great, synced two at a time perfectly. Somehow the blast + its app is awful, Bluetooth is just poor, it’s impossible to pair 2 blasts without having one of them constantly cut out or have distorted output (bought the speaker yesterday). Sad, I miss the old ue’s I had.
Very limited features
by Bleach 3000 on 2020/01/12 00:58

by lxjfgsdkjafgjsahdgcfjks on 2020/06/07 23:46
Said my speaker needed to be updated. Made me email myself a link. Clicked on the link and it downloaded a dmg file. On my iOS device. Any way to update my speaker without a laptop? Apparently not. Complete fail. Last time I buy a UE product.
Needs work
by ap.reviewer101 on 2020/05/28 00:52
Definitely agree with other reviewers, this app needs a lot of work. Im having issues connecting the speakers to WiFi or even group speakers. I’m down to only use Bluetooth. It’s so disappointing. Can we please get an update???
Crashes when I try to connect it to my Echo
by alexaelectra on 2020/09/10 23:22
As soon as I tap to connect it to my echo this app crashes and can’t finalize the setup. What a joke to pay $250 for an Alexa compatible speaker with an app needed for setup that just crashes - like really?
Pointless
by DantheEagle on 2020/03/28 17:12
What is the point of this app. Why do I need an app to connect my speaker. This is dumb. Plus the speaker doesn’t understand me more than half the time. It’s ridiculous. I will not be buying another one of these speakers. Period.
Amazing speaker! Terrible app
by ddoralisa on 2019/12/28 22:48
Firstly, I’m in love with my speaker. But the app won't connect with my device. I tried on other phones as well to no avail. It keeps disconnecting and/or saying that no device is found.
Not updated for iOS 13
by CyberData4 on 2019/11/13 23:43
Logitech is terrible at supporting their products. No updates for this premium speaker app in four months. Bugs persist. Yet no update. Paid 300$ for the megablast. I expect better software support.
Rubbish - just rubbish really.
by JGM NYC on 2019/10/18 23:13
This is a $200 speaker, supposedly you can Connect multiple speakers, you can’t. They connect and they disconnect at will and ruin the party. Get a grip UE, this is bad and they are all coming back to you. Massive disappointment.
Pathetic. Literally the worst pairing process I’ve ever seen.

Make the app to turn off the speaker

App doesn't do much
by Bob Allison on 2020/07/09 17:39

Connection to WiFi
by linlilin1991 on 2019/12/02 03:23
Cannot connect to WiFi with the good credentials. And typing numbers in a row is a pain because it automatically goes back to the alphabet keyboard.
Updates don’t help
by LockdownD🔒🤫 on 2019/08/07 17:18
I used to be able to use all my speakers for the party Up feature and now half of them don’t connect to the app once they update it and updated the speakers. UE PLEASE FIX THIS!!
Update
by supreme_cali on 2019/10/03 13:52
The app needs a on and off button
Letdown
by AMS412 on 2019/07/23 00:51
I upgraded from the megaboom and boy do I miss it. Simply being able to remotely turn it on would have saved this app and the megablast. 1 year now waiting for an updated app.
I wish I could give 0 star
by Nyctomi on 2019/09/21 16:23
Horrible app! Not even deserve 1 star. Connection problems, all the time. Wish I would have never bought it.
So bad..
by BPSherlock on 2019/12/31 20:44
I like the speaker but this app is useless. I can’t get it to connect to my WiFi and it just drops my Bluetooth connection. If you connect Bluetooth the good ole fashioned way. The speaker is great.

It’s okay.
by TravisTragedy on 2020/07/01 02:43
It’s a great concept, but I hate that there’s barely any settings for Alexa and I can’t use any other music service but Spotify or amazon music unless I’m actually using the Bluetooth feature. If I ask Alexa on the speaker to play songs on Apple Music, she says it isn’t supported on this device but I have Apple Music connected to my amazon/Alexa account.

The app keeps asking me to setup when I do it says failed try again ... after doing it couple of times it says connect to WiFi then it fails and takes me back to setup page
Needs work
by ap.reviewer101 on 2020/05/28 00:52
Definitely agree with other reviewers, this app needs a lot of work. Im having issues connecting the speakers to WiFi or even group speakers. I’m down to only use Bluetooth. It’s so disappointing. Can we please get an update???
Dejaron de Funcionar
by Chin1971 on 2020/05/27 21:23
Compre 2 Megablast con la idea de emparejarlos y poder usarlos juntos, pero lamentablemente muy pocas veces consiguen emparejarse. He reseteado y reconfigurado los altavoces en varias ocasiones, pero siguen sin funcionar. Es frustrante. Si pudiese devolvería hoy mismo los altavoces.
Make the app to turn off the speaker
by Gsrboy171 on 2020/05/25 12:57
I can’t even turn off the speaker with the app.
2020 AWFUL!!!
by maria6758 on 2020/05/13 18:23
IF I COULD GIVE THIS ZERO STARS I WOULD!!!! First it kept saying it found my blast and then lost it. Then every time it would have me click blast the app would shut down. I restarted my phone. Redownloaded the app. And now can’t get my new speaker to get up... how exciting 🤩😍 this is ridiculous and return ur speaker don’t even waste your time because you won’t be able to connect it anyways
Unable to update
by Steph_RN_BSN_MSN-AGNP on 2020/04/20 22:03
The app goes into a loop & then errors out when checking for updates. Please fix have iPhone X w current iOS installed. I believe this is keeping me from full functionality of speaker. If I though the reviews stating this glitch... I would not purchased. The speaker has great sound quality... software awful! Stephanie
Grouping doesn’t work
by schang12 on 2020/04/20 19:29
I purchased multiple speakers with the idea that I could connect them both at the same time as advertised. While I can play music from them individually, the app gets stuck when trying to pair the two of them and it never works.
It won’t update the speaker
by Moistunicycle66 on 2020/04/03 20:40
So when I open the app I put in the WiFi password then it was searching for a update for the speaker and it found an update just it wouldn’t download and it won’t let me get any further in to the app to set up Alexa or anything if this gets fixed i will rate the app higher
Pointless
by DantheEagle on 2020/03/28 17:12
What is the point of this app. Why do I need an app to connect my speaker. This is dumb. Plus the speaker doesn’t understand me more than half the time. It’s ridiculous. I will not be buying another one of these speakers. Period.
Doesn’t work

by TK_200 on 2020/03/20 12:26
Errors out on Wifi search, no longer finds speaker in select screen to continue setup after restarting app. Ridiculous proprietary plug. Can’t believe I fell for UE speakers again after having so much trouble with my 2 Megabooms. Blast + a Power Up bundle is being returned and I’ll never buy another UE product.
Needs some attention please
by Sullivan99 on 2020/03/18 18:00
Stuck on connecting to WiFi - blast won’t update firmware
Useless App
by vodan2 on 2020/02/29 01:32
Two megablast speakers wouldn’t double up on iPad. So useless.
I WANT MY MONEY BACK!!!!!!!
by boggeddown on 2020/02/08 17:34
I got anew I phone 11. Now I can’t use this speaker. I’ve tried everything with no luck. HOW ABOUT GIVING A SOLUTION !!!!!!!
Buggy speaker
by dhh he. on 2020/02/03 16:40
I’m so sick of this speaker bugging out, not connecting of dis connecting. At the moment, I am unable too even get the ultimate ears app to read the speaker. It’s like it doesn’t even exist, which is disappointing when considering how expensive the speaker is and that I’ve only had it over a year....
Not good
by Svrbford on 2020/01/18 19:11
No point in having this app unless its for updates.. 1. They need to add the power button on here so i dont have to walk to the speaker to cut it on. 2. Make it so i can pair it with the BOOM 3. Just update this app already. Please My ue boom app is better. I can control alarms, power on/off, settings etc.
Zero stars
by Hunna Boy on 2020/01/16 17:43

Opción en español hace falta

Very limited features

Very limited features cannot Power from the app
Avoid at all costs
by TheTruthLivesHere on 2020/01/06 19:48
Pairing is a hassle, buggy, and intermittently disconnects. There is clearly no tech support for this product as the last software update was released over 6 months ago. Nothing is being done to solve these issues. Take your money elsewhere.
Used to work
by Que-Key on 2020/01/04 04:36
Got the new iPhone11 pro max and it tells me not supported and can’t connect, but connects but the app itself doesn’t seem to work with it and doesn’t sense it’s connected and sometimes disconnects.... maybe an update needs to be made for the updated phones.... before it was 5 stars cuz it gave no problem and I was able to customize the settings
So bad..
by BPSherlock on 2019/12/31 20:44
I like the speaker but this app is useless. I can’t get it to connect to my WiFi and it just drops my Bluetooth connection. If you connect Bluetooth the good ole fashioned way. The speaker is great.
App Works Perfectly
by RazorQueen Ulka on 2019/12/29 23:48
The app works just fine. The setup went perfectly at every step including the speaker getting a firmware update in the process. I was shocked at the number of bad reviews. I ran the app setup on an iPhone X with iOS 13.3 as well as an iPhone 6 with iOS 12.4. Every function in the app works fine including grouping speakers. Also the range is as good as my long range headphones and I’ve gotten hours of use with a group of speakers and not one glitch. Maybe it’s people with low performance or cheap hardware phones. IDK.
Amazing speaker! Terrible app
by ddoralisa on 2019/12/28 22:48
Firstly, I’m in love with my speaker. But the app won't connect with my device. I tried on other phones as well to no avail. It keeps disconnecting and/or saying that no device is found.
NEED TO READ THIS IF YOU ARE HAVING TROUBLESHOOTING ISSUES
by Dittstar on 2019/12/27 04:26
I just ordered a megablast on a third party site and had trouble connecting it to the app and therefore WiFi. Realized the speaker was running 1.6 something which is like the update in 2017. YOU NEED TO UPDATE THE SPEAKER VIA COMPUTER BEFORE CONNECTING TO THE APP. I don’t have the link, but it is in the FAQS for this app online. Update it via usb through your computer and it should have no problem after. Would give it 5 stars, but this is a hindrance to others as it seems. Hope I saved ya some frustration
Not working

Won’t connect to WiFi
by 🎩🎩🎩🎩🎩🎩🗽🗽🗽🗽🗽 on 2019/12/25 23:42
Can’t do anything relating to Alex’s because the app won’t connect to the WiFi. It rarely shows the WiFi’s connection around and when it does it says unable to connect to the network. There is no use to my mega blast if I can’t use Alex’s I might as-well of bought the one below the mega blast
Poor execution
by InsaneJamez on 2019/12/25 19:40
My app hardly works, crashes a lot and I could never pair 2 speakers together I always get errors. Very very good poor execution. Please fix
Wow
by SageGod23 on 2019/12/17 18:53
I have been using apps in the App Store for maybe around 7 years. I have never left a review for any of the 200+ apps I have used. I am here today to let you know this is by far the worst app of all time. Nothing works. I have been trying to pair a $200 speaker for probably upwards of 2 hours. Return that speaker if you purchased it
Ehhhh
by AlexKisner on 2019/12/09 18:34
I just got this speaker for a steal. The blast on the website is listed at $179.99 and I found it new on amazon for $85 and it came with the charging doc. The speaker sounds great and connect to my phone perfectly just like any Bluetooth device. But when I went to use this app the set up simple did not work. At all. Right out of the box I followed the video UE has on YouTube of how to set up your BLAST or MEGABLAST. I follow every step exactly and when it came to checking for software updates it said failed. So I ignored it and continued on since my speaker did not update it refused to connect to wifi after. Now I can get the speaker connected to the app but when I try to connect to wifi it simply disconnects itself and I can not get past that. Besides the fact I didn't buy the speaker for the Amazon Alexa feature. I bought this speaker for the quality and durability of the speaker itself and for the price I got it for it was a steal. But if you are deciding between the BLAST/MEGABLAST or the BOOM/MEGABOOM save yourself the money if you can’t find a deal like me because you wont be able to use the features anyway.
Return the blast if you still can!!
by Robinanyc on 2019/12/05 01:57
Speaker is fine and mobile alexa is appealing. BUT You cannot use in a group with more than one other alexa Instructions and app are lacking as is apparent from the overall rating. Instructions don't explain how to put on alexa app and it is not intuitive. App is all flashy photos, poor navigation, and no summary of steps. I spent 1/2 hour on phone w help desk and they decided i probably had a lemon and should return. I had another one to give as gift and it did set up properly. Either the first one was a lemon or i made the mistake of multitasking and somehow missed a step.
Connection to WiFi

App will mot connect with bluetooth iOS13
by OTR-Fan on 2019/11/25 19:51
App was always of dubious value. Now, it won’t even connect to the speaker via Bluetooth! Now all I have is an expensive tube paperweight. Am running latest iOS (13.3.3), and yes, I did make sure to turn on Bluetooth under BLAST in settings. Somewhere I think a class-action is brewing. This shouldn’t be any different tha pairing a set of eaphones. Get up to speed, guys!
Not updated for iOS 13
by CyberData4 on 2019/11/13 23:43
Logitech is terrible at supporting their products. No updates for this premium speaker app in four months. Bugs persist. Yet no update. Paid 300$ for the megablast. I expect better software support.
Buggy
by tmz99 on 2019/11/04 04:47
-Keeps asking me to connect speakers to Bluetooth - yet they are connected to my phone via Bluetooth. -sometimes a small speaker icon appears, sometimes the one for the speaker I actually have - random.

Complete Mess
by Paul Rammer on 2019/11/02 17:17
I am extremely disappointed with these speakers. Although they sound good, their functionality is a showstopper, literally and a WASTE Of MY $. I can’t believe that the Megablast team at Logitec would stand next to this piece of crap! I’ve been a loyal MEGABOOM consumer since the beginning owning seven over the generations. So I purchased FOUR of the MegaBlast on that good faith and was screwed. Here’s the issues: 1) connectivity. Near impossible for all of them to connect. I’ve worked tirelessly for HOURS setting up with WIFI then eliminating all of the Bluetooth except the primary speaker. Tried all Bluetooth. No Bluetooth and all wireless. The variations continue. Best is One speaker WIFI and Bluetooth and rest only WIFI. Still super spotty and the connection issues come in phases, not sure what would drive the waves of issues. My business depends on reliable sound! 2) App doesn’t shift to portraits mode. iPads with keyboards only sit in portrait so this is just annoying. 3) Music pauses when speaker 2, 3 or 4 connects in sequence on Bluetooth 4) Have there been updates to this app or speaker? I’m guessing Harmony is not investing in this speaker compared to the megablast Costco carries. -I’m recalling the significant improvement to MEGABOOM app when it was updated a year or so ago, Made connecting so much easier. -Needs an “All speakers power on and connect” option like MEGABOOM now offers. I need help with this. It’s been a total disaster and wast of $1,200!
Review of app only!
by atocra on 2019/10/30 18:30
Speaker is a 8/10 The Alexa support is like Alexa lite. It’s not a full functioning Alexa My biggest complaint is the inability to stream Apple Music via WiFi App is a 1/5 No remote power on like with the mega boom Difficult to pair with other mega blasts Unable to pair with megabooms I never use this app. There is no reason to. Speaker works as intended without it
App will not connect
by DJStormy on 2019/10/23 20:51
Thought it was my phone, running a Beta iOS but it seems to be the app itself. It seems to connect to my Blast but it won’t connect to the WiFi during setup. It just keeps spinning and then it asks you to reconnect. Basically the app is useless.
Rubbish - just rubbish really.
by JGM NYC on 2019/10/18 23:13
This is a $200 speaker, supposedly you can Connect multiple speakers, you can’t. They connect and they disconnect at will and ruin the party. Get a grip UE, this is bad and they are all coming back to you. Massive disappointment.

Biggest lie of the century
by Ajdi Europe Albania Sarande on 2019/10/13 07:20
This is the most useless app ever. It doesn't do anything as they say. What a scam
App is OK but...
by Markie 61301 on 2019/10/12 15:06
I love my UE Blast. The sound is great for its size. However, the UE have yet to have native support for Apple Music. You can play Apple Music via Bluetooth, but you cannot play Apple Music content via Alexa (although Amazon Alexa does have Apple Music support). This makes Alexa technology in UE Blast about 80% useless for me. Therefore rendering me to not need this app. So much for “built for Apple” claim on the box. Update - I spoke to their customer service team about using Alexa while on LTE. They said I need a second device (wifi hotspot) to connect the Blast to so Alexa could work when on the go. This means you have to carry another device to keep using Alexa — are you for real??? Update - I dont think they’re reading these comments at al! This is the last Logitech product I will own.
Update

Worst App Ever!
by Genie Ireneee on 2019/09/16 20:50
I just purchased a mega blast speaker and had it paired to mega boom and it played. Then it told me I should not be able to pair to the boom system. So like an idiot, I downloaded mega blast today and pairing has not worked. Period. I’m done with sham apps. This needs fixing! And before you say it, I went to the troubleshooting site and it was worthless. Contact me.
Horrible App
by DJCT2009 on 2019/09/15 11:20
Agree with other reviewers that this app needs to be fixed. I should have read app reviews before buying multiple speakers. 1. Difficult to connect speakers and then when you do they disconnect for no apparent reason. 2. It appears if you set-up on your phone and you try to do anything on your phone, I.e. save a song, search for info, it could disconnect. 3. Your device with app must be close, actually very close, to speaker to work and it should be near a power source as drains battery on device. 4. Connection range is shorter then advertised. 5. App only shows name of first speaker or parent speaker. When the addition speakers show up on app connection page there is no name so you are not sure which speaker connected. If one drops then you need to unconnected all and reconnect which means moving them all close together l. Greet way to kill the party. Luv the speakers. Luv the concept of the app but it need many improvements. Holding out hope developers are reading the reviews and working on fixes.

I think you folks can improve.but I still can’t do updates .and by what the other people that reviewed it Seems as though they to have problems with it.and the bugs could be fixed and/or Found .so for the sake of the meme lord and the other fellow peeps plz Just at lest try to fixing the bugs and the update problems so peeps like me and others don’t give yea one 🌟 ((a.k.a star)) or occasionally da 4 🌟 ((again a.k.a star)) but mostly da 3 and 1 🌟((once again a star)) also so we can FINally ((pun intended)) listen to remixes,jazz,rock and what not. :T
ABSOLUTELY USELESS APP

Somehow got worse
by mouldy1234 on 2019/08/16 18:11
Loved UE since the original ue boom. Ue boom 2 was great, synced two at a time perfectly. Somehow the blast + its app is awful, Bluetooth is just poor, it’s impossible to pair 2 blasts without having one of them constantly cut out or have distorted output (bought the speaker yesterday). Sad, I miss the old ue’s I had.
good but I have some ideas
by Thunder Boom on 2019/08/10 15:00
i'm only giving this a four star rating because of the lack of Alexa feature sometimes, first ad the ability to change your wake word, second add the start and end of request sounds, and third ad the multi room music ability meaning the built-in Alexa multi room music ability
Updates don’t help
by LockdownD🔒🤫 on 2019/08/07 17:18
I used to be able to use all my speakers for the party Up feature and now half of them don’t connect to the app once they update it and updated the speakers. UE PLEASE FIX THIS!!
App not working
by qnm7 on 2019/08/02 23:28
Was the app recently updated or something? It says bluetooth not connected. Alexa works but the speaker won’t connect with my laptop anymore. Please fix this.
Useless
by brianj509 on 2019/08/02 04:53
Pretty much the app is useless dont waste your time with the fancy $200+ speaker cuz you wont be able to use all the cool features due to there being practically no customer support just some useless tips that dont offer an option to ask or talk to anyone so if your issue isn’t listed your screwed, cant setup my megablast cuz the update keeps failing
Works well if the speaker software is updated
by daniel9478 on 2019/08/01 18:20
I recently got a Blast and immediately tried to set it up using the iOS app as suggested by the directions in the box. Just like others have said, it seemed to get stuck, spinning forever. It seems as though the problem is that out of the box it couldn’t connect reliably to the phone via Bluetooth. Based on this, I tried it on my daughter’s cheap Android phone with that version of the Ultimate Ears app. The Blast had no problem connecting through the app there and was able to connect to our WiFi and update itself. After the update, I returned to the iPhone and tried that version of the app again. Sure enough, everything works great now. While it shouldn’t be required to jump through hoops to update the Blast firmware, it seemed to resolve the issue. Hopefully this helps someone else out who may be considering a new Blast.
Simple App - It Gets the Job Done
by Wild Horse George on 2019/07/30 23:22
I'm not sure why there are 1 and 2 star reviews of this app. I had my Ultimate Ears Mega Blast connected to my iPad via Bluetooth in no time at all. The WiFi connection was almost as quick. Connecting to my Amazon Alexa account was easy. Adjusting the EQ was just as easy.
Letdown
by AMS412 on 2019/07/23 00:51
I upgraded from the megaboom and boy do I miss it. Simply being able to remotely turn it on would have saved this app and the megablast. 1 year now waiting for an updated app.
Absolute Garbage

by MBcocobolo on 2019/06/29 21:33
I can only use the Blast with one iphone. I cannot use it with any other iphones in the house hold family. It only works with one device. Even after trouble shooting.... I should be allowed to use on more than one device. Other than that, the speaker is fabulous!
Annoying

Horrible
by Jarner on 2019/06/17 19:22
Recently bought the Megablast. Right out of the box I had trouble:the speaker wouldn’t work. After spending a considerable amount of time with Support it finally started working. Soon there after it quit again. This time Support could not fix it in that it wouldn’t consistently pair with either my iPhone or iPad. I was told that because it did work initially, after help from Support, they couldn’t help me anymore and suggested I contact Apple for help. I have owned several boom/blast speakers without any trouble. The way Support treated my problem I won’t ever buy another UE Speaker again. My next step is to take the speaker back to Best Buy and the geek squad try to help me out. Wish me luck.
Won’t work :/
by AureyJC on 2019/06/13 05:12
Speaker won’t connect to WiFi. I keeps saying it lost connection. I guess it’s just a Bluetooth speaker and that’s it. If you want this for the Alexa functionality, I would recommend you look elsewhere. Disappointing to say the least.

Connecting Blast to WiFi
by Trish McA on 2019/05/28 00:31
I had the same problem as Brad until I read the FAQ’s and realized that the Bluetooth/pairing light on top of the Blast wasn’t on. Once I turned it on, the setup worked smoothly. We’re very happy with the sound quality.
Terrible product
by unhappywithyourspeaker on 2019/05/27 23:02
Set up is impossible returning to Best Buy today. Works on Bluetooth that’s it, no wonder it was half off, pure junk.
Terrible app
by BigJoeD on 2019/05/25 18:48
Like previous review, the speaker sounds pretty good but the setup and app connecting to WiFi is a nightmare.
A high end Bluetooth speaker - only !
by BradJMellon on 2019/05/22 21:06
What a frustrating product ! The speaker has terrific sound when connected to Bluetooth - but that’s all it will do. Download the miserable app and got stuck in a loop trying to connect to WiFi. Apparently the speaker needs a software update. Can only get an update once connected to the app via WiFi. Cant connect to the app via WiFi because it needs a software update ! Tried downloading update on MAC desktop - MAC wont open the file ‘no mountable file systems’. The speaker is probably a good product but the app and support are 3rd world !
Cross Compatibility
by j.c65 on 2019/05/21 06:32
I have spent quite a but of money on my UE products but for some reason they don’t find it important to keep their customers happy by making their products compatible with each other. I own a MegaBoom and a MegaBlast and although they can pair with multiple speakers within their respective “families”, they will not double up outside of that. Boom doubles with Booms, Blasts double with Blasts, but Booms won’t double with Blasts. Soooooo stupid!!!!!! Also, the Blast app doesn’t have a function to power the speaker on and off from within the app.
Nope
by JoshuaBNGA on 2019/05/09 22:28
Just got this home, I can connect via Bluetooth to my phone, but as soon as I try to connect through this crappy app it says disconnected, try again. The speaker is on and sitting beside my phone. I’ve uninstalled and re-installed. I’ve force restarted my phone several times, I’ve turned the speaker on and off. Nothing makes it connect. The help section in the app tells you to connect the speaker... thanks y’all!
One of the Buggiest Apps I’ve ever used
by Xarga22 on 2020/08/18 02:52
I’m surprised by the poor quality of this app coming from a company like Logitech. Set up of a single device wasn’t too much of a problem but after adding a second then a third megablast device the app became unstable in its paired connection. When I removed the frost two and tried to add a third device the system wouldn’t connect. Found the device but then failed to connect to WiFi. Other things in the app are sometimes hit and miss as far as stability goes.

YOU NEED TO UPDATE THE SPEAKER VIA COMPUTER BEFORE CONNECTING TO THE APP. I don’t have the link, but it is in the FAQS for this app online. Update it via usb through your computer and it should have no problem after. Would give it 5 stars, but this is a hindrance to others as it seems. Hope I saved ya some frustration
Missing key Alexa commands
by pocojim on 2020/08/21 18:57
Since this is a Bluetooth music speaker, you’d think it would have standard Alexa commands to control music on paired devices. I have several Echo devices and regularly use Alexa commands such as pair my device, play Bluetooth, pause, resume, next song, etc. None of these are enabled on the Blast! You must connect to Bluetooth manually and use your iPhone/iPad and control music like on any ‘dumb’ Bluetooth speaker. Very disappointing!
It won’t update the speaker
by Moistunicycle66 on 2020/04/03 20:40
So when I open the app I put in the WiFi password then it was searching for a update for the speaker and it found an update just it wouldn’t download and it won’t let me get any further in to the app to set up Alexa or anything if this gets fixed i will rate the app higher
good but I have some ideas
by Thunder Boom on 2019/08/10 15:00
i'm only giving this a four star rating because of the lack of Alexa feature sometimes, first ad the ability to change your wake word, second add the start and end of request sounds, and third ad the multi room music ability meaning the built-in Alexa multi room music ability
Used to work
by Que-Key on 2020/01/04 04:36
Got the new iPhone11 pro max and it tells me not supported and can’t connect, but connects but the app itself doesn’t seem to work with it and doesn’t sense it’s connected and sometimes disconnects.... maybe an update needs to be made for the updated phones.... before it was 5 stars cuz it gave no problem and I was able to customize the settings
Unable to update
by Steph_RN_BSN_MSN-AGNP on 2020/04/20 22:03
The app goes into a loop & then errors out when checking for updates. Please fix have iPhone X w current iOS installed. I believe this is keeping me from full functionality of speaker. If I though the reviews stating this glitch... I would not purchased. The speaker has great sound quality... software awful! Stephanie
Buggy
by tmz99 on 2019/11/04 04:47
-Keeps asking me to connect speakers to Bluetooth - yet they are connected to my phone via Bluetooth. -sometimes a small speaker icon appears, sometimes the one for the speaker I actually have - random.
2020 AWFUL!!!
by maria6758 on 2020/05/13 18:23
IF I COULD GIVE THIS ZERO STARS I WOULD!!!! First it kept saying it found my blast and then lost it. Then every time it would have me click blast the app would shut down. I restarted my phone. Redownloaded the app. And now can’t get my new speaker to get up... how exciting 🤩😍 this is ridiculous and return ur speaker don’t even waste your time because you won’t be able to connect it anyways
App will mot connect with bluetooth iOS13
by OTR-Fan on 2019/11/25 19:51
App was always of dubious value. Now, it won’t even connect to the speaker via Bluetooth! Now all I have is an expensive tube paperweight. Am running latest iOS (13.3.3), and yes, I did make sure to turn on Bluetooth under BLAST in settings. Somewhere I think a class-action is brewing. This shouldn’t be any different tha pairing a set of eaphones. Get up to speed, guys!
Return the blast if you still can!!
by Robinanyc on 2019/12/05 01:57
Speaker is fine and mobile alexa is appealing. BUT You cannot use in a group with more than one other alexa Instructions and app are lacking as is apparent from the overall rating. Instructions don't explain how to put on alexa app and it is not intuitive. App is all flashy photos, poor navigation, and no summary of steps. I spent 1/2 hour on phone w help desk and they decided i probably had a lemon and should return. I had another one to give as gift and it did set up properly. Either the first one was a lemon or i made the mistake of multitasking and somehow missed a step.
Useless
by brianj509 on 2019/08/02 04:53
Pretty much the app is useless dont waste your time with the fancy $200+ speaker cuz you wont be able to use all the cool features due to there being practically no customer support just some useless tips that dont offer an option to ask or talk to anyone so if your issue isn’t listed your screwed, cant setup my megablast cuz the update keeps failing
Wow
by SageGod23 on 2019/12/17 18:53
I have been using apps in the App Store for maybe around 7 years. I have never left a review for any of the 200+ apps I have used. I am here today to let you know this is by far the worst app of all time. Nothing works. I have been trying to pair a $200 speaker for probably upwards of 2 hours. Return that speaker if you purchased it
Worst App Ever!
by Genie Ireneee on 2019/09/16 20:50
I just purchased a mega blast speaker and had it paired to mega boom and it played. Then it told me I should not be able to pair to the boom system. So like an idiot, I downloaded mega blast today and pairing has not worked. Period. I’m done with sham apps. This needs fixing! And before you say it, I went to the troubleshooting site and it was worthless. Contact me.
iPhone 11 iOS 13.3.1
by TK_200 on 2020/03/20 12:26
Errors out on Wifi search, no longer finds speaker in select screen to continue setup after restarting app. Ridiculous proprietary plug. Can’t believe I fell for UE speakers again after having so much trouble with my 2 Megabooms. Blast + a Power Up bundle is being returned and I’ll never buy another UE product.
Won’t connect to WiFi
by 🎩🎩🎩🎩🎩🎩🗽🗽🗽🗽🗽 on 2019/12/25 23:42
Can’t do anything relating to Alex’s because the app won’t connect to the WiFi. It rarely shows the WiFi’s connection around and when it does it says unable to connect to the network. There is no use to my mega blast if I can’t use Alex’s I might as-well of bought the one below the mega blast
Grouping doesn’t work
by schang12 on 2020/04/20 19:29
I purchased multiple speakers with the idea that I could connect them both at the same time as advertised. While I can play music from them individually, the app gets stuck when trying to pair the two of them and it never works.
Avoid at all costs
by TheTruthLivesHere on 2020/01/06 19:48
Pairing is a hassle, buggy, and intermittently disconnects. There is clearly no tech support for this product as the last software update was released over 6 months ago. Nothing is being done to solve these issues. Take your money elsewhere.
Buggy speaker
by dhh he. on 2020/02/03 16:40
I’m so sick of this speaker bugging out, not connecting of dis connecting. At the moment, I am unable too even get the ultimate ears app to read the speaker. It’s like it doesn’t even exist, which is disappointing when considering how expensive the speaker is and that I’ve only had it over a year....
Nice graphic, but after that....
by swbronco on 2020/09/24 03:40
Lacks any kind of real logic. No flow to what’s in each of the menu areas. So much potential, but no effort in making the whole interface compelling. Time for a “ Do over”!
Talk about clunky
by Playerextraordinaire on 2020/07/21 16:42
This app is pretty much worthless since it hasn’t been updated to work with IOS updates. Can’t get through it to find any functionality. It asks me if I want to set it up, even though it’s already set up, or paired. Cannot figure out how to get Alexa to work.
App will not connect
by DJStormy on 2019/10/23 20:51
Thought it was my phone, running a Beta iOS but it seems to be the app itself. It seems to connect to my Blast but it won’t connect to the WiFi during setup. It just keeps spinning and then it asks you to reconnect. Basically the app is useless.
Needs a newer update
by Steven Hernandez on 2020/06/28 18:46
I recently got the Megablast and it is having a few glitches when pairing two together. A new software update is needed ASAP.
Somehow got worse
by mouldy1234 on 2019/08/16 18:11
Loved UE since the original ue boom. Ue boom 2 was great, synced two at a time perfectly. Somehow the blast + its app is awful, Bluetooth is just poor, it’s impossible to pair 2 blasts without having one of them constantly cut out or have distorted output (bought the speaker yesterday). Sad, I miss the old ue’s I had.
Very limited features
by Bleach 3000 on 2020/01/12 00:58
Very limited features cannot Power from the app
App won’t connect to WiFi
by M02yad on 2020/05/29 17:23
The app keeps asking me to setup when I do it says failed try again ... after doing it couple of times it says connect to WiFi then it fails and takes me back to setup page
Fail
by lxjfgsdkjafgjsahdgcfjks on 2020/06/07 23:46
Said my speaker needed to be updated. Made me email myself a link. Clicked on the link and it downloaded a dmg file. On my iOS device. Any way to update my speaker without a laptop? Apparently not. Complete fail. Last time I buy a UE product.
Needs work
by ap.reviewer101 on 2020/05/28 00:52
Definitely agree with other reviewers, this app needs a lot of work. Im having issues connecting the speakers to WiFi or even group speakers. I’m down to only use Bluetooth. It’s so disappointing. Can we please get an update???
Crashes when I try to connect it to my Echo
by alexaelectra on 2020/09/10 23:22
As soon as I tap to connect it to my echo this app crashes and can’t finalize the setup. What a joke to pay $250 for an Alexa compatible speaker with an app needed for setup that just crashes - like really?
Pointless
by DantheEagle on 2020/03/28 17:12
What is the point of this app. Why do I need an app to connect my speaker. This is dumb. Plus the speaker doesn’t understand me more than half the time. It’s ridiculous. I will not be buying another one of these speakers. Period.
Amazing speaker! Terrible app
by ddoralisa on 2019/12/28 22:48
Firstly, I’m in love with my speaker. But the app won't connect with my device. I tried on other phones as well to no avail. It keeps disconnecting and/or saying that no device is found.
Not updated for iOS 13
by CyberData4 on 2019/11/13 23:43
Logitech is terrible at supporting their products. No updates for this premium speaker app in four months. Bugs persist. Yet no update. Paid 300$ for the megablast. I expect better software support.
Rubbish - just rubbish really.
by JGM NYC on 2019/10/18 23:13
This is a $200 speaker, supposedly you can Connect multiple speakers, you can’t. They connect and they disconnect at will and ruin the party. Get a grip UE, this is bad and they are all coming back to you. Massive disappointment.
Pathetic. Literally the worst pairing process I’ve ever seen.
by whaines1 on 2019/07/11 22:44
Your app literally doesn’t work, can barely recognize the speaker and loses connection almost immediately. What is going on here? Fix it.
New update 7/1/19
by ok2bmbus3 on 2019/07/03 04:35
Gets to the WiFi set up and does nothing but the spinning wheel of death even though there is open connected WiFi won’t let you run rest of setup without it
App Doesn’t work
by Maria B Brilliant on 2020/09/23 18:48
I spent a lot of money on my Ultimate Ears Mega Boom 3 and I have it on and sitting in front of me and the app keeps saying no device found. When I click help it literally says one sentence of nothing!
App not working
by qnm7 on 2019/08/02 23:28
Was the app recently updated or something? It says bluetooth not connected. Alexa works but the speaker won’t connect with my laptop anymore. Please fix this.
Make the app to turn off the speaker
by Gsrboy171 on 2020/05/25 12:57
I can’t even turn off the speaker with the app.
App doesn't do much
by Bob Allison on 2020/07/09 17:39
Would be cool if there were features like Sony's headphone app, equalizer, concert modes, etc.
Connection to WiFi
by linlilin1991 on 2019/12/02 03:23
Cannot connect to WiFi with the good credentials. And typing numbers in a row is a pain because it automatically goes back to the alphabet keyboard.
Updates don’t help
by LockdownD🔒🤫 on 2019/08/07 17:18
I used to be able to use all my speakers for the party Up feature and now half of them don’t connect to the app once they update it and updated the speakers. UE PLEASE FIX THIS!!
Update
by supreme_cali on 2019/10/03 13:52
The app needs a on and off button
Letdown
by AMS412 on 2019/07/23 00:51
I upgraded from the megaboom and boy do I miss it. Simply being able to remotely turn it on would have saved this app and the megablast. 1 year now waiting for an updated app.
I wish I could give 0 star
by Nyctomi on 2019/09/21 16:23
Horrible app! Not even deserve 1 star. Connection problems, all the time. Wish I would have never bought it.
So bad..
by BPSherlock on 2019/12/31 20:44
I like the speaker but this app is useless. I can’t get it to connect to my WiFi and it just drops my Bluetooth connection. If you connect Bluetooth the good ole fashioned way. The speaker is great.
Poor execution
by InsaneJamez on 2019/12/25 19:40
My app hardly works, crashes a lot and I could never pair 2 speakers together I always get errors. Very very good poor execution. Please fix
Pointless app
by TheScUbA69 on 2020/06/13 17:38
What a pointless app, my phone is connected and playing music yet the app can’t set up/find the speaker...
