I wanted to get this app for my boom speaker but the app didn’t work for that speaker type so they definitely need to make an update or a new app of the boom speaker.
Always on = always out of battery
by iMathew! on 2020/09/21 16:48
Please allow users to deactivate the always on power feature! It used to be a toggle in the app. My speakers are constantly losing battery for a feature that I can live without. Reaching physically for my speaker is faster than going into the app to turn it on anyway. Is it too much to ask?! I regret ever updating the internal software.
Blending
by DGarth on 2020/09/21 01:34
Mega boom 3 and the original Boom seem not to enjoy the software.
Update
by &$)(86? on 2020/09/20 15:46
All other apps just update. With that... why is the Boom all of the sudden sounding like chipmunks in a distant cave? I’ve not hear this poor quality since my brother ripped speakers out of an old 50’s stereo in his first attempt at a free “ system sound “ at 12 years of age. I will continue to try to get the app to upgrade and open to get sound controls but I may have to just say screw-it and avoid this company in my next purchase.
Disappointed
by Melissa Cli on 2020/09/20 11:05
I bought 4 speakers for cheer performances. The speakers are difficult to get all of them connected, they don’t stay connected, i can’t get to far away before the music cuts out. If I’m just connected with one speaker via my ps Bluetooth, I can get pretty far away but not if I’m using this crappy app. I’m very disappointed.
Stop messing around
by keeshkitty on 2020/09/19 02:15
Quit messing with the u booms. You have ruined it. I can’t even get both my speakers to play at same time anymore. You had a great product. Millennials need to get the wise saying “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” and write it on their foreheads or better yet tattoo it!
Hmmm don't know if anyone read 👉UPDATES?👈
by ice239291 on 2020/09/17 15:46
Wish there. Was more updates on. This. App. It would work making are. System better and Cooler. Being update I WISH FOR 👉UPDATES👈. FOR MY. PRODUCT MEGA BOOM
Seemingly useless
by ghahebdjtbtbrhskala on 2020/09/16 05:17
It’s unclear what, if anything, this app does.
No Bueno
by Rona-Rona on 2020/09/14 18:36
I got two HYPERBOOM on party up mode and they keep disconnecting and not wanting to synce up anymore they don’t stay connected for more then 5-10 min on stereo mode
Incrementally crap!
by Apoel Jason on 2020/09/13 07:02
This is the first time that I write a review about anything. But I am doing so because I am really really and incrementally frustrated by the speakers. They wont connect to the bluetooth. The party-up function wont work. I cant even update them. You are selling some expensive speakers, you guys. Stop being so cheap!
Just doesn’t work
by nock8008008 on 2020/09/11 13:27
I only gave the app to double up two speakers. Both speakers are exactly the same and brand new. The app connects to both but will not double them up as advertised. So frustrating.
Needs Spotify Feature
by Bea Benitez on 2020/09/11 00:51
I really enjoyed the andriod version of this app. This version is clean and simple but it REALLY needs to include Spotify for choosing the playlists. I don't use it anymore because of this. I am plainly disappointed.
Wireless is trash. Be an adult
by 273917839pmjjjs on 2020/09/06 19:46

What happened to DJ mode?
by 3838718187 on 2020/09/06 06:20
I loved this speaker because my friends and I could trade DJ duties in the app. This feature has disappeared. It makes it very difficult to share the speaker with those who don’t have the app. Very disappointing to see the speaker getting WORSE with updates.
Horrible at best
by product19 on 2020/08/29 17:02
The app is simple but a challenge. Before I bought my second Megaboom 3 I had issues at times connecting my Megaboom 2. I just bought Megaboom 3, added it to the app, to run “party” Stereo, Double - the app at many times loses connection to one of the speakers, them that blows up your other connection to the other speaker. At best you have to shut down and manually turn off all your speakers then relaunch. The sound for “double” & “stereo” would be great if it worked and didn’t have the cracking on the 2nd speaker you’re adding. It’s a connectivity issue - app is most frustrating than helpful and that’s too bad I might return the 3 because I got it to wirelessly connect my music from room-to-room.
Bluetooth????
by Ya Bum on 2020/08/25 15:18
I’m currently playing music on my speakers but the app keeps saying I need to allow access to Bluetooth on it...newsflash...that’s not even an option in the app settings on my iPhone.
Party up mode don’t work
by hahhdhdb on 2020/08/24 02:18
I can’t pair my megaboom and ue boom together.
Worst app ever
by Joan Jett Fan on 2020/08/20 19:34
This thing is so buggy and inconsistent now that it just constantly locks up. Did you have this app developed overseas? Can I roll back to the last version that this problem did not exist. Do you actually perform beta testing? I don’t think so or you can just care less about your customers that you just throw the revised code out there? Right now, I can turn on one speaker and when I go to Party Up it shows my other 4 speakers but the app hangs and I am unable to add the other speakers. Please make this a priority fix and have Americans do the coding. You get what you pay for in most cases. I spent a lot of money on all these speakers and can’t even use them now.
Fix it
by David Rainer on 2020/08/18 18:47
Can you guys please please please fix this app??? I have purchased three of your UE Boom 2 speakers for my shop and they sometimes speed up the music for a bit and also make nasty distortion crackly sounds and cut out and it is horrible. They work 70% of the time but definitely have issues and a lot of users say older versions of the software worked much better.
Doesn’t work
by bonenail on 2020/08/15 21:35
I generally don’t write reviews but feel compelled to do so now. I’ve had my mega boom 3 for 2 years and have enjoyed many hours of music with it..BUT.. now after upgrading the app my mega boom app cannot find my speaker on my Bluetooth connection even when the Bluetooth shows that it’s on showing the mega boom box connection.. the app is totally flawed, full of bugs and just doesn’t work. I want my speaker to work like it did on the previous app. I wouldn’t that recommend anybody buy anything mega boom until this fatal app flaw is fixed... give me back my music!
Worked for a while
by Ir4512784 on 2020/08/15 15:04
Worked for the first week or 2 that I had my new Hyperboom. Now the app won’t recognize that I’ve connected to the speaker via Bluetooth. App is essentially worthless.
Controlling EQ is nice but app has an annoying glitch
by Timothy Kaldas on 2020/08/15 12:03
The equalizer is helpful for getting the right sound out of your speaker but the app appears to interrupt play at times when switching between apps on your phone. I deleted the app and the problem went away. My phone's memory is pretty full so perhaps this is less of an issue with phones with less strain on their memory but for me this was an annoying problem. I'll reinstall when I want to adjust the equalizer and immediately delete again.
The app is getting worse
by "JUST DO IT" on 2020/08/14 16:36
Bought 3 Boom 2’s a year ago and once I updated the software on the speakers everything worked great. I could party all of the speakers up and they all connected and I could see the names of each one. Now recently in the party up feature it doesn’t give the name of the speakers so I can pick and choose which ones I want to connect. It just says Boom 2. When I am picking a host speaker I can see the names. Now it also seems to be skipping more often when using the party up feature. The host speaker seems okay but the auxiliary speakers skip around. This app is becoming pretty much worthless. I was planning on buying additional speakers because I could connect them all through the app but now I am seriously reconsidering! I would be happy to increase the star rating but please fix these issues as soon as possible or I may just end up going with another brand!
Megaboom bass performance
by MrMaximusGladias on 2020/08/08 17:24
August 2019 they somehow nerfed all of my megabooms. They took all the bass out for a more detailed audio. They have rolled out updates that take away the rewind song functions. My megaboom bass is no longer loud and the sounds are vary cheep now. Lots of people have agreed. Please update the sound so we can have our original performance. Make the app run more smooth because the app crashes a lot now. I have 10 Megabooms now and each one I updated had taken away its bass power acoustics And I lost my money choosing I wanted this thing and then you guys made it something less i’ve had them for years and all the batteries also die at 50 percent charge. Please fix the problems and not let this be the EOL of this product. The app no longer works on iphone SE
This app is hot dog poop
by Dareyoutogobackaftertryingthis on 2020/07/29 01:28
The one time I was finally able to get my speaker to show up in the app, I adjusted the equalizer - and now it’s stuck that way, super tinny for podcast vocals, since I cannot get it to show up in the app again. So despite the speaker itself being great (Boom / Boom 2, idr) with a remarkable amount of bass for a unit of its size, its now FUXKED by this half-baked, all-style-and-no-substance app.
Needs iOS Shortcuts support
by nicolasd on 2020/07/25 20:58
I want to be able to tap a shortcut and power on/off my BOOM. I’m sure there are other features UE could add. Right now the only point to this app is remotely powering on/off my BOOM and firmware updates.
Not Bad
by noblase_ on 2020/07/23 23:51
Only thing I wanted to ask is when will they add the Spotify option for the magic button?
Not happy this isn’t compatible
by RisaRae84 on 2020/07/21 22:24
I ordered the wonder boom for this application, it says it’s not compatible. Not happy, Logitech. Not happy at all.
Unstable
by Mikey70G on 2020/07/19 15:38
The app is unstable and party up works intermittently. The UE line of speakers are great individually but doesn’t work as advertised with party up. Needs a firmware update and new software.
Unsatisfied Disappointed Upset
by Dorpond on 2020/07/18 12:53
So for a few years now I’ve been using my Megaboom speaker and loving it. I decided I wanted to expand my musical range throughout the back yard and decided to buy another Megaboom. When I got it, I was excited, and connected it up to this app. It said I needed an update for the new speaker, so I put it on. Excited, I tried the party up feature and was a bit confused how it worked, but I figured it out. I immediately noticed the new speaker didn’t sound as good as my old, as the new sounded more flat than my old. Then I walked the new speaker about 25 feet into another room and noticed the new speaker was cutting out. WHAT?!? So I did some tests and went outside where there are no walls. I got the same results as the new speaker was cutting out after a distance of about 25 feet. So I did another test and turned off partyup; I then connected to only one speaker via Bluetooth and set my phone down on the table. I then walked around my back yard with the original speaker, and I was able to cover my whole back yard without issues. I then tried it with the new speaker and was able to cover the whole back yard as well. So by themselves, they seem to have good range, but when paired through Partyup, the range drops dramatically. What is the range of Partyup speakers anyway? I have not been able to find this information. Had I know this, I would not have purchased a second Megaboom. What good is having 2 speakers so close to each other? The goal was to cover my whole back yard (pool area and the fire pit area). I wrote support for help, but I might just end up sending this back to Best Buy.
Block party
by jolan2810282 on 2020/07/16 01:13
This app is only useful to turn on the speaker and the block party feature but it was removed in this update? Block party made the speaker extremely practical now it’s no better than other speakers at the same price point.
App is ok
by E man awsome on 2020/07/14 18:56
I wish there was a function to lower the volume of the “speakers sounds” - I like sound feedback to my button presses but the built in bongo’s are WAY too loud. The app also can’t connect to the speaker unless the phone is connected via Bluetooth which I *guess* I understand the technical reason why but.. it’s 2020 I should be able to connect multiple devices like the Bose ones. It also randomly mutes the audio from my device.. like I’ll be playing a YouTube video, the sound will go out but the video will still be playing.
Battery on app always says 0%
by KarlyMareka on 2020/07/14 15:28
I downloaded the app to check the battery status of my boom, but it always reads 0% on the app whether it is charged or dead, even if it is plugged in and charging. Not useful.
Bad compatibility with iOS
by kstate7 on 2020/07/13 18:38
The Megaboom 3 speaker is a good product. It’s compatibility with Apple’s software is terrible. The speaker battery percentage will not show up in Apple’s battery widget and the speaker will not support the Spotify integration. Per the manufacturer, both issues are because of Apple’s iOS locking out these features. Pretty disappointing given that Apple sells the Megaboom 3 on its website. My cheapo Amazon speaker used to work better. Disappointing.
Lots of room for improvement
by Ashlae W. on 2020/07/11 17:47
We have a Megaboom that couldn’t hold a charge (would die after a day of use) (it’s less than a year old!) so we bought two BOOM 3s thinking that would solve the problem. It did solve the charging problem BUT now the music we play is constantly skipping, the speakers don’t stay partied up, etc. We’re returning them and getting Sonos speakers. Not worth the headache.
Where is SPOTIFY in the game
by Megaboom3 guy on 2020/07/11 03:08
I really like the app and the speakers I currently own 3 megaboom3 but I switch from Apple Music ti Spotify and was so disappointed that the app won’t support it for the party up other than that highly recommend also can you get it for Mac OS
Love the app and speaker
by CHRIS5377. on 2020/07/10 16:36
The app and speaker pair together really well, but I wish that there were more “one tap to playlist” music services. Personally I think spotify and youtube music would be great additions.
Worked great until
by Drake Burger on 2020/07/09 00:21
2nd day using the app I wake up and my phone will connect just fine to either bluetooth ports. The APP won’t register the connection for whatever reason. If you’re making an app for a $400+ speaker, I’d make sure the app worked. I’ve tried forgetting the device option on my phone and re-connecting, nada. Re-downloaded the app, nada. Tried someone else’s phone, nada. I was able to rename my Hyperboom. Can’t access the EQ settings now though since the app won’t connect. All my settings for all apps have bluetooth enabled. 🤷🏻‍♂️ Guess I’ll try to return it or hopefully trade it out. I’ll update the review if it gets fixed. Useless app atm.
Block Party Missing
by Ni.k.ki on 2020/07/06 05:46
With the recent update, it has removed the “block party” option. Block Party allows a few people to become “the DJ” for the speaker. Please restore it!!!! It’s so convenient when I have friends over for BBQ
Great speaker. Awful app
by TheMuzikalPoet on 2020/07/05 16:54
App doesn’t recognize that the speaker is paired.
Please fix
by Jesusisreal568 on 2020/07/03 14:01
For those using this app to judge the speaker itself this isn’t the place to do it, you are rating the app. I was using this app it has never failed me until now I recently started using it again when it tells me my speaker is at 0% when it’s fully charged, I want this fixed please along with the alarm it never stays the same volume I set it at. I end up getting blasted by the speaker because it’s volume was at the max for some reason
Update impossible
by mzmscoyote on 2020/07/02 19:33
It tells me i need to update my speaker. When i followed the path i ended at a dead end. It said to wanted to send an email to explain how to update the speaker. I enabled it and zip. Nada. Hit a dead end and no email was ever sent.
Cannot connect second speaker
by Kenka70 on 2020/06/27 06:31
After the latest update, it doesn’t recognize my second speaker. Poor.
Issue with battery status
by orakzai.shahid on 2020/06/26 07:57
The battery jumped from 100 to 80 to 60 in a matter of a couple of hours with the only use being me checking the battery. The software is flawed.
Suggestion For App
by Poolman777 on 2020/06/24 14:46
On the next update can you create the way to listen to music like a normal music player. Only the ability to create playlists right now Would like to pick individual artists and songs from my library Also the ability to replay a song. A shuffle feature would b nice as well
Works great for me.
by EnriqueMTZ on 2020/06/24 00:15
Every feature works for me I have 3 speakers Boom 2 and 2 Megaboom 3s all futures including Party Up work!
No support
by Sfgjdagj on 2020/06/22 03:38
The app doesn’t connect to my speaker. I’ve reached out for support multiple times and get no help or response. Would not reccomend.
Does not work for all speakers
by Waldooooo0oo on 2020/06/20 07:20
Bought UE boom 2. Works great. Bought a wonderboom to dual speaker but it is not compatible with app. Disappointing app but good speaker
please implement thissss
by jmanuelrondon on 2020/06/19 04:07
ok so, i bought the BOOM 3 speaker 6 months ago and it’s been great, i love it, and i use it almost every day. the app is great too, but i would like to have a timer feature, so i can fall asleep listening to music and after a certain amount of time the speaker would turn off automatically.
Most recent update is much worst than previous.
by Small Axe1 on 2020/06/17 18:07
I rarely ever write reviews, but my frustration with the last update has forced me to do so. The updates over the last few years have been improving incrementally, and the last one I was really satisfied with, but the last update reminds me of the poor performance of about 2 years ago. I don’t understand how that could be. I have 10 UE Megabooms and now the custom names don’t consistently show, which makes it difficult to identify which speaker I’m connecting to, even worse, after 10-15 minutes of playing, the partyup feature turns off by itself. So upsetting. This is with all speakers in range and with over 75% charge, and the main speaker in range and fully charged. I was planning to get the new subwoofer, but with the inconsistency of the software development, I am unsure if it’s worthwhile.
Block Party
by 71614072 on 2020/06/17 00:24
Last update removed Block Party. Having multiple people connected to the speaker was a huge selling point for my Boom 2s. Multiple friends of mine utilize the feature and now the update essentially “broke” what didn’t need to be fixed.
Thumbs down 👎🏼
by Femme x on 2020/06/15 06:36
This hasn’t worked for me at all. Will not recognize my speaker is paired.
No Spotify Support
by SupportSpotify on 2020/06/13 19:17
Add spotify support, not everyone uses apple music. They have it on android so why not apple devices.
It’s amazing🤩🔥🤘🏽
by lilpaullyd on 2020/06/13 04:37
It’s really work
Pairing takes a while
by qjayjr on 2020/06/11 19:19
I recently pair my UE BOOM 2 with the UE MEGABOOM and they sound great but overtime the audio will drop frequently, the streaming quality is dropping at a high hat or a Bass Punch type song , it really sounds horrible , the last update I personally did not have that problem but overall everything is good
The app makes an otherwise good speaker terrible
by AVgearfreak on 2020/06/10 19:29
I bought two Megaboom3 speakers to use as a stereo pair. The app is so bad that using the speakers as a stereo pair is a total fail. Takes many attempts to get the app to connect the second speaker as a stereo pair. Once connected as a stereo pair, constant dropouts and speaker disconnects make the stereo mode unusable. I have no connectivity problems whatsoever when connecting the Megaboom 3 speakers to either my iPad or Galaxy S10+ without the app. Sadly, no stereo without the app.
Block Party!!!!
by Liquid joy on 2020/06/06 13:42
The last update (7.5.1, or possibly 7.5.0) removed Block Party which is the reason I (and many friends) use this App and these speakers. It is essential. Please, please, hurry and restore it.
Awesome app
by jdogsavage on 2020/06/06 03:53
Great app but can you guys a Spotify
Alarm stopped working
by Hliu88 on 2020/06/05 07:10
Use to love this speaker but the alarm feature doesn’t work anymore. I’ll set the alarm but it doesn’t go off at the time I set it for. PLEASE FIX THIS ISSUE!!!
Needs old option to turn off remote power
by Mjott on 2020/05/31 12:58
Love these speakers but the new app no longer allows you to turn off remote power feature. This feature drains the battery when the speaker is not in use and is not worth it for many users like myself. Seems like the new app is a huge step backwards for UE since I have to keep the speakers on the charger constantly if I want a fully charged speaker the following weekend when I use it. UE needs to bring back the option to turn off this remote feature.
Why no Spotify integration
by Kevin & Joy on 2020/05/31 00:00
I can still play Spotify since through Spotify I can comtrol which speakers it plays on. But for the life of me I don’t know why the UE app only supports Apple Music, Amazon Music and Deezer (whatever that is...). App does have handy reference info and an EQ.
Quality App
by Sir Dominos on 2020/05/30 01:27
In my experience, this app has been very convenient, simple, and easy to use. I find the simplicity very helpful when I want to quickly change a setting such as the built-in equalizer, or the volume control, as it is right there when I open the app. It doesn’t over-complicate or clutter things, which I find to reflect the simplicity of the speaker itself. The only problem I myself have experienced is being unable to update my speaker, as the app suggests I should, but I believe that problem to be with my speaker itself, not the app.
Horrible
by Laurie Frame on 2020/05/29 21:55
Unable to pair megablast and a mega boom on the same app!
False advertising
by Etman7 on 2020/05/28 01:16
This app is NOT compatible with all Boom speakers.
UE BOOM 2 NOT RECOGNIZED IN APP
by Pitch Meister on 2020/05/26 20:19
FIX THIS IF U WANT 5 STARS DEVELOPERS.
Nightmares with pairing 3 boom speakers, thumbs down
by Up yourz on 2020/05/20 03:55
Once I am able to get all 3 speakers paired it sounds great.. only problem is that process usually takes 10-20 minutes of me messing with the app and my Bluetooth settings before it finally decides it wants pair all 3 together and work right (absolutely unacceptable). These are cool for river floats or hikes (with one speaker) but the “block party” feature is a joke.... don’t expect it to work flawlessly... it will give you a headache a frustrate the heck out of any tech savvy person. Thumbs DOWN!!!!
App & speaker needs work
by USA.1st on 2020/05/16 01:08
It does not sync with the volume of device being used with it; apple or Samsung. No previous track on device.
App went to crap
by BrotherDavid09 on 2020/05/15 23:09
The last update has ruined the the app. Speaker cuts out and block party was removed. Block party was the main reason why I even bought the speaker in the first place.
Bring back ability to turn off remote power!!!!
by bert618 on 2020/05/15 14:11
This has been one of the most versatile speakers (UE Boom series). My original UE Boom still lasts over 15 hours and hold its charges for well over 6 months. That was until I decided to get UE Megaboom. It has a new app that allows you to remotely turn on or off the speaker. It seemed pretty cool but I was wondering how much battery drain it would be as it is essentially communicating with the speaker constantly. The app also told me my UE Boom needs a firmware update. After I did the update, the speakers power started draining like crazy in its off state. I left the power for both speaker in the “soft-off” state at 70%/40% battery for UE Megaboom and UE Boom. 5 days later with 0 usage, the battery went down to 40% and 20% respectively!! This is a TERRIBLE NEW FEATURE! Please add back the ability to turn off the ability to remote turn on the speaker. After I did a hard reset on the speakers, I left them unused for 2 weeks, and the battery is still 40%/20% today. I re-paired them today to my phone. But I expect the battery to continue to drain now the ability to turn them on and off remotely is back. Please add the ability to turn off this “feature” which many considers to be a bug.
Actualización

Con esta versión 7.5.1 eliminaron multi dj, usaba mucho esta opción espero y regresen esa opción
Many opportunities available
by BrightonY125 on 2020/05/14 02:47
There are so many great thing the creators could implement with this app, but they don’t. Bluetooth connectivity with party mode is still sketchy, and there are a lot of features missing!
Non-functional software
by Eolnshurdlu on 2020/05/13 07:37
The software does not function because UE can not provide a firmware update. Boom 2 speakers badly need a third-party solution since UE can not properly support their own devices.
Good speaker, poor features
by Ariel_Levy on 2020/05/13 03:32
The speaker sound quality is amazing, let’s get that straight. However, there is no support for Spotify for the One Touch Playlist feature, whenever I try to Party Up two speakers the receiving speaker gets choppy and get cut out a lot when it gets only about 15ft away from the host speaker, sticky party up feature doesn’t work, most of the time the app tells me the battery for my speakers are 0% which is incorrect, and whenever I play music from Spotify, YouTube, basically anything that’s not Apple Music the speakers pop by playing at full volume for like half a second before going back down to the volume they’re supposed to be at. Love the brand, speaker quality, and customer support, but these issues HAVE to be addressed.
Part Up feature stopped working
by irvinec200 on 2020/05/13 00:19
Recently bought a new BOOM3 speaker and in the second week the Party Up feature in the app won’t work. Due to this problem I am unable to connect multiple devices at once.
Battery drain
by OutRayGS on 2020/05/12 01:36
Removed ability to not have “wake from app” feature. It’s always on waiting to connect to app despite latest Bluetooth tech it still drains the battery. Love to be able to disable this feature so my battery will last longer like before this feature was removed.
Great sound, the app needs some work
by karina90 on 2020/05/09 20:41
I love my speakers, they have clear and loud sound, perfect with the party up option, some times the app glitches and you have to uninstall the app, remove the devices from the Bluetooth memory and do it all over again... can be a bit annoying but i still likes speakers :)
Very Disappointed
by madre2be2020 on 2020/05/09 15:08
I always loved these mega boom speakers because of how much bass they had. I get 2 speakers wanting to pair them together and one speaker always says 0% charge on a full battery and does nothing but crackle throughout an entire song and it’s very annoying. I eventually just had to unpair it and use 1 speaker which totally defeats the purpose of buying 2 speakers to entertain my family game night. Please fix! These speakers are not cheap!!
Doesn’t Detect or Pair Speakers
by ZMPN10 on 2020/05/06 19:50
Bought two with the intention of pairing them to play together. The app never detects the speakers to turn them on. You can manually turn them on using the power button on the speaker and play one single speaker. Since the app does not detect the speakers I am not able to “Party Up” to engage the second speaker simultaneously. Battery indicator also does not function. Even when the speaker is fully charged the app shows 0% for the one speaker. Regretting the purchase!
Don’t buy the speaker!!
by Other fish in the sea on 2020/05/05 21:41
I have a regular Boom for years now. I then got the book 3. In the app it said I could connect the 2 speakers together. Nope. Now the app is telling me I need to update my regular Boom. I’ve updated it. Still doesn’t work. Do not buy any of this product. Even the website doesn’t work. Terrible. After waiting a while it wants to work. The speaker is a good speaker. I think it’s just the app. The app is useless besides pairing the speakers together. It’s a hassle
Speakers cut in and out
by Eric18284384 on 2020/05/04 13:54
The speakers cut in and out when they are paired even when only a few feet apart.
Why no Wonderboom 2 support?
by gjtfreak on 2020/05/02 20:30
This app works great with my previous UE boom speaker which I’ve had for years and loved. But it was time for an upgrade so I went out and bought the Wonderboom 2. I absolutely love the speaker but why is there no app support for it like the rest of the boom speakers have. It’s such a great speaker so I just can’t wrap my head around this decision by UE. I really hope they add support in a future version of the app so I can have all the same great features that my much older Boom speaker has on my much newer Wonderboom 2.
This kills the volume of my mega boom 3
by koryfly on 2020/05/01 19:04
I almost took my speaker back because it was wimpy with this app running. I deleted it and the speaker instantly increased its volume by 40%. Go figure
Email to update app
by Shimmer401 on 2020/04/28 15:17
The email is blank to sender. App is now useless
Updates FUBAR
by Giacomino on 2020/04/19 17:29
Boom 2s in stereo mean awesome sound anywhere anytime. That is unless updates prevent pairing. Bluetooth connects to both units. UE fubar app “sees” both speakers UNTIL double up is pressed. Then only one speaker or the other but not both. Same w party up. Pleas fix or find the programmers who messed this up and flog them with wet fettuccine noodles. I’m close to taking a sledgehammer to both speakers and wearing a “DOWN WITH LOGITECH” Sandwichboard outside their headquarters!
App Does Not Work After Sync
by Chester410 on 2020/04/16 00:18
1. Downloaded app 2. Connected device to speaker with Bluetooth 3. App does not recognize device, just says “comeback to the app” Megaboom 3
Worst app EVER!
by POW Tramp on 2020/04/14 15:28
If I didn’t own the speakers first, the app alone would be enough to make me choose another speaker. Always, literally every time I use it to turn on the speakers is shuts them off and I have to restart. So FRUSTRATING! Update: 4/14/20 The new version seems to actually be worse. Now it can’t find the speakers half the time despite updating speaker software. Why is this so difficult?! Please fix it! I LOVE the speakers and HATE the app!!
ONE ISSUE
by Instaswaggot sike.. on 2020/04/14 10:20
I rely on this app souly to wake up in the morning because previously it used to go all the way up as high as I set it on the alarm but that function has been bugging out lately and It’s been a huge issue for me. Not to mention I work at T-Mobile and we sell this product and I’d like to be able to say it’s reliable, I love the products let’s get the software running at the same pace. The alarm goes down to its own level every time you re-enter the app so there’s no reliability that it’s going to stay at the level that you set it to. Huge problem for me. Hope this is resolved soon.
Worked well for a minute :(
by R_J_C on 2020/04/14 00:33
Worked the first few times I used it and then the sound just stopped. Went through every FAQ, googled it, looked on YouTube for answers and nothing. Says it’s connected and playing but no sound. I can only use my phone to turn the speaker on or off - that’s a useless and VERY EXPENSIVE WASTE OF MY MONEY. Get something else if you want quality and ease of use.
Mega boom 3
by S RODZ on 2020/04/11 18:01
I’m about to return this speaker. For one the battery life is not 20 hrs and two the speaker lowers when a text or notification comes in and the volume does not increase I have to walk back to the phone and raise the volume HugoRodz
I just purchased and will return
by Littlelovey on 2020/04/08 19:52
I do research for everything. All my research led me to the mega boom 3. Brand new but not loud at all. It’s synchronized with my phone which I don’t like because it caps at my phones volume! Why???! I compared it with the wonderboom 2 and the charge 4. BOTH ARE LOUDER. how is a tiny wonderboom louder than my speaker? Will be returning.
Battery slowly dies with new update
by Daretruth on 2020/04/06 06:46
In previous versions you could disable "remote power" and the battery would last forever. Now it has a small constant drain for Bluetooth that cannot be disabled. This change basically means you will need to recharge your speaker much more often. Thumbs down . 😟
Audio Skipping with multiple speakers!!! UPDATE******
by Nestor The Tech Guyy on 2020/04/06 04:33
Hey, I’ve recently bought a HYPERBOOM and loved it soooo much. Love the audio and the bass and clarity of it all. No tweaking has to be made for the sound at all. Now, I love the speaker so much I bought another HYPERBOOM. The issue I face now is when I pair the 2 speakers, they sound beautiful and awesome but, about every 15 mins or so there’s a audio skip or mis-sync between the 2 and my phone are literally right next to them. This alone has gotten be frustrated because I then have to power off the speakers to put them back to normal cause the app then freezes. This really takes away a whole lot from the experience. Possibly may be returning the second speaker if I can’t pair them both without having any issues whatsoever. Please, please guys, get this fixed as soon as possible. **** Just found out that I’ve been listening to songs in wrong left and right channels. So there is actually no way of telling which hyperboom is broadcasting L or R channel on the app neither on the speaker. The way I found out was playing a left and right test on YouTube and it played the opposite. It doesn’t matter either where you place the speaker in the app either, You can label Hperboom 1 hyperboom 2 and place the speaker side by side but it actually won’t matter either until you actually press the 2 arrows going side by side to officially change the channel stream. This is a big no. This needs to be fixed ASAP. There should be labels in the app or on the speaker displaying who’s playing Left channel and who’s playing Right channel instead of opening YouTube for a sound test each time.

REMOTE CONTROL FEATURE
by DryNoodle on 2020/03/28 09:27
Last app had the feature to turn on and off the remote feature but, now in this app not only is it removed but the speaker is constantly on and draining battery. Keep the old app until remote feature in added and also other features are added. No real insensitive to download this one.
I don’t understand
by LovelyLily487 on 2020/03/27 22:40
I had a UE mega boom back in 2015 loved it. It blew so I bought UE boom in 2018. But I keep having app issues or maybe Bluetooth issues where the app can’t find my speaker so it won’t connect or turn it on even with the speaker right next to it. Or example last night every few seconds it turn on, connect, disconnect, repeat until I finally said forget it and threw it in my bag. Is there a software update I missed? Or am app update I don’t understand why it won’t do the basic functions now. :/
No feasible way to update the app!
by Ifuseekamy18 on 2020/03/27 02:15
So how do you update the app? They take you to a page where you’re composing an email. They do not provide you with an email address btw. So you either have to use your psychic abilities or go online and look for this nonexistent email address to send them for a software update.
Wish it had great connection with multiple speakers
by N3ffsaid on 2020/03/25 02:34
I gave it a three star, because although I love the speakers.....it just seems to lack a great connection when adding more. I recently got the new Hyperboom and it’s AMAZING, but when I try to pair it with other speakers I have......it just skips. I walk maybe 5ft away with another speaker then it just seems like it loses connection, the app freezes when I want to turn off a speaker. I don’t know if it’s a small bug....but whatever it is I know it can be fixed. All I ask is for a better connection when adding speakers, I would like to have a speaker inside my house and one outside with no one going to look at me and say “umm what’s wrong with your speaker” Again great products, but the connection needs to be fixed.
Does not add second speaker
by 2 click will get you there on 2020/03/24 12:22
Works perfectly on iPhone but on the iPad it does not accept a second speaker. Keeps popping back to the bottom. Very annoying and no way to fix this. Seems to be an issue with the version. Have had these speakers for 2 years and are happy with them but the software lacks way behind.

No "previous track", rewind, or fast forward functions, only play/pause & "next track".
by َٰ on 2019/11/12 04:23
I bought this speaker mainly to listen to podcasts, audiobooks, and professional education courses I have to get through. As such, I use the “previous track” feature as heavily as the “next track”, and also heavily rely upon the ability to rewind or fast forward (controlling the track from your physical iPhone, this is achieved by holding down the forward or back button). However, the single “magic button” one button on the top of the speaker which is supposed to control music from the speaker without needing to access your device, can only do two things - press once to play or pause, tap twice to skip to next track. Tapping three times does nothing; upon reading the support page, it turns out “previous track” is not a function on this device, anything other than play\pause or next track must be done from your device. In addition, most accessories which use this single\double\triple tap system allow you to hold the second (or third) tap down as a press in order to (respectively) fast forward or rewind within a track. The speaker supports neither of these either. I would gladly edit and update this review should the manufacturer correct this and add any or all of these features on a update (the speaker can be updated through the app).
Bring back ability to turn off remote power!!!!
by bert618 on 2020/05/15 14:11
This has been one of the most versatile speakers (UE Boom series). My original UE Boom still lasts over 15 hours and hold its charges for well over 6 months. That was until I decided to get UE Megaboom. It has a new app that allows you to remotely turn on or off the speaker. It seemed pretty cool but I was wondering how much battery drain it would be as it is essentially communicating with the speaker constantly. The app also told me my UE Boom needs a firmware update. After I did the update, the speakers power started draining like crazy in its off state. I left the power for both speaker in the “soft-off” state at 70%/40% battery for UE Megaboom and UE Boom. 5 days later with 0 usage, the battery went down to 40% and 20% respectively!! This is a TERRIBLE NEW FEATURE! Please add back the ability to turn off the ability to remote turn on the speaker. After I did a hard reset on the speakers, I left them unused for 2 weeks, and the battery is still 40%/20% today. I re-paired them today to my phone. But I expect the battery to continue to drain now the ability to turn them on and off remotely is back. Please add the ability to turn off this “feature” which many considers to be a bug.
Mega Boom hiccups
by 𝕂𝕖𝕟𝕟𝕪𝕁𝕠𝕖 on 2020/02/24 08:20
I love this speaker...up until now. I just recently downloaded the latest firmware to enhance my speaker even more. I didn’t think it could get any better. I use for work, even the crew was amazed when I first brought it to work for the first time 5 years ago. Now they’re wondering what I did to it. All it does now is hiccup every 1-3 minutes through a song and it’s very annoying. Plus the Bass response isn’t anyway near what it used to be. So I had to tell them it was sabotaged by its own developers. That was a big decision I made 5 years ago. I read a lot of reviews on different speakers before I decided on this one. I was actually leaning pretty hard on a Polk Bluetooth speaker before I made the decision on this one. For $300 I would think I’d get a longer life expectancy. I guess it’s always a gamble...review or not. Well...that’s my sob story of the week. Bummed, KennyJoe
Most recent update is much worst than previous.
by Small Axe1 on 2020/06/17 18:07
I rarely ever write reviews, but my frustration with the last update has forced me to do so. The updates over the last few years have been improving incrementally, and the last one I was really satisfied with, but the last update reminds me of the poor performance of about 2 years ago. I don’t understand how that could be. I have 10 UE Megabooms and now the custom names don’t consistently show, which makes it difficult to identify which speaker I’m connecting to, even worse, after 10-15 minutes of playing, the partyup feature turns off by itself. So upsetting. This is with all speakers in range and with over 75% charge, and the main speaker in range and fully charged. I was planning to get the new subwoofer, but with the inconsistency of the software development, I am unsure if it’s worthwhile.
The app is getting worse
by "JUST DO IT" on 2020/08/14 16:36
Bought 3 Boom 2’s a year ago and once I updated the software on the speakers everything worked great. I could party all of the speakers up and they all connected and I could see the names of each one. Now recently in the party up feature it doesn’t give the name of the speakers so I can pick and choose which ones I want to connect. It just says Boom 2. When I am picking a host speaker I can see the names. Now it also seems to be skipping more often when using the party up feature. The host speaker seems okay but the auxiliary speakers skip around. This app is becoming pretty much worthless. I was planning on buying additional speakers because I could connect them all through the app but now I am seriously reconsidering! I would be happy to increase the star rating but please fix these issues as soon as possible or I may just end up going with another brand!
Megaboom bass performance
by MrMaximusGladias on 2020/08/08 17:24
August 2019 they somehow nerfed all of my megabooms. They took all the bass out for a more detailed audio. They have rolled out updates that take away the rewind song functions. My megaboom bass is no longer loud and the sounds are vary cheep now. Lots of people have agreed. Please update the sound so we can have our original performance. Make the app run more smooth because the app crashes a lot now. I have 10 Megabooms now and each one I updated had taken away its bass power acoustics And I lost my money choosing I wanted this thing and then you guys made it something less i’ve had them for years and all the batteries also die at 50 percent charge. Please fix the problems and not let this be the EOL of this product. The app no longer works on iphone SE
Quality App
by Sir Dominos on 2020/05/30 01:27
In my experience, this app has been very convenient, simple, and easy to use. I find the simplicity very helpful when I want to quickly change a setting such as the built-in equalizer, or the volume control, as it is right there when I open the app. It doesn’t over-complicate or clutter things, which I find to reflect the simplicity of the speaker itself. The only problem I myself have experienced is being unable to update my speaker, as the app suggests I should, but I believe that problem to be with my speaker itself, not the app.
Controlling EQ is nice but app has an annoying glitch
by Timothy Kaldas on 2020/08/15 12:03
The equalizer is helpful for getting the right sound out of your speaker but the app appears to interrupt play at times when switching between apps on your phone. I deleted the app and the problem went away. My phone's memory is pretty full so perhaps this is less of an issue with phones with less strain on their memory but for me this was an annoying problem. I'll reinstall when I want to adjust the equalizer and immediately delete again.
Battery drain.
by MrEli on 2020/02/12 21:05
In the older version of the app that worked with this speaker there was an option to turn off remote power. It’s the option to be able to turn on and off the speaker with in the app. By having remote power on it drains the battery when you’re not even using it. For an example I would charge my speaker to 100%. It would sit in my back pack for 2-3 weeks. When I would ready to use my speaker the battery would be completely drained. When the option to turn off remote power my speaker would still be fully charged after sitting for 2-3 weeks. I really hope this option can come back.
Please fix
by Jesusisreal568 on 2020/07/03 14:01
For those using this app to judge the speaker itself this isn’t the place to do it, you are rating the app. I was using this app it has never failed me until now I recently started using it again when it tells me my speaker is at 0% when it’s fully charged, I want this fixed please along with the alarm it never stays the same volume I set it at. I end up getting blasted by the speaker because it’s volume was at the max for some reason

by ccharles37 on 2019/10/08 01:13
You guys make awesome speakers! Super big fan and I use it during my morning shower everyday. One suggestion is Siri Shortcut support! You guys are sold at Apple Store's and use exclusively Music, but don't have support for Siri Shortcuts! It would be so nice to be able to ask Siri to turn my speaker on instead of opening up the app. Thanks for all your hard work :) big fan here!
Doesn’t work
by bonenail on 2020/08/15 21:35
I generally don’t write reviews but feel compelled to do so now. I’ve had my mega boom 3 for 2 years and have enjoyed many hours of music with it..BUT.. now after upgrading the app my mega boom app cannot find my speaker on my Bluetooth connection even when the Bluetooth shows that it’s on showing the mega boom box connection.. the app is totally flawed, full of bugs and just doesn’t work. I want my speaker to work like it did on the previous app. I wouldn’t that recommend anybody buy anything mega boom until this fatal app flaw is fixed... give me back my music!
Fix it
by David Rainer on 2020/08/18 18:47
Can you guys please please please fix this app??? I have purchased three of your UE Boom 2 speakers for my shop and they sometimes speed up the music for a bit and also make nasty distortion crackly sounds and cut out and it is horrible. They work 70% of the time but definitely have issues and a lot of users say older versions of the software worked much better.
Needs old option to turn off remote power
by Mjott on 2020/05/31 12:58
Love these speakers but the new app no longer allows you to turn off remote power feature. This feature drains the battery when the speaker is not in use and is not worth it for many users like myself. Seems like the new app is a huge step backwards for UE since I have to keep the speakers on the charger constantly if I want a fully charged speaker the following weekend when I use it. UE needs to bring back the option to turn off this remote feature.

Nightmares with pairing 3 boom speakers, thumbs down
by Up yourz on 2020/05/20 03:55
Once I am able to get all 3 speakers paired it sounds great.. only problem is that process usually takes 10-20 minutes of me messing with the app and my Bluetooth settings before it finally decides it wants pair all 3 together and work right (absolutely unacceptable). These are cool for river floats or hikes (with one speaker) but the “block party” feature is a joke.... don’t expect it to work flawlessly... it will give you a headache a frustrate the heck out of any tech savvy person. Thumbs DOWN!!!!

Power
by Mikeann126 on 2019/12/12 19:05
I love love love love this speaker. I use it every single day without fail. I hate when the battery is dead and you have to wait for a certain percentage for it to turn back on. Today it was 47% before it let me turn it back on. So that’s really annoying. Once it’s plugged in it should be able to turn back on.
Everything they claim if awful at best
by Xtphp123 on 2020/03/18 20:52
Range 150 feet?? Hahaha. Maybe 15 feet if you’re lucky and the solar winds are in your favor and Pegasus happens to be helping out. 20 hour battery?? Laughable. Maybe in a lab with the volume at 1 and playing a baby lullaby. Patty up??? More like party foul. My biggest aggravation of all. I have two speakers 6 feet apart and they are choppy and drop the songs. It makes me the joke of the party like the speakers have Tourettes. I can’t tell you how disappointed I am in the app and speakers, and yet I’ve bought 4 🤦🏼‍♂️. I just kept hoping they’d get better and the firmware updates would fix the issues. As a single unit tied to a single Bluetooth device they are good, but on the beach of all places they have horrible range and are easily drown out. Super discouraging and disappointing.
Speaker is unusable because of crappy app
by Gwen365 on 2020/02/15 03:14
We bought the speaker and haven’t been able to use the settings in the app so it shuts off every 15 minutes and plays an annoying intro bit every time we turn it back on. We have tried to set it up with several devices and it’s always the same thing. The company doesn’t seem to be concerned with all the complaints they are getting about this app. I wish I had gone with a different speaker.
please implement thissss
by jmanuelrondon on 2020/06/19 04:07
ok so, i bought the BOOM 3 speaker 6 months ago and it’s been great, i love it, and i use it almost every day. the app is great too, but i would like to have a timer feature, so i can fall asleep listening to music and after a certain amount of time the speaker would turn off automatically.
Suggestion For App
by Poolman777 on 2020/06/24 14:46
On the next update can you create the way to listen to music like a normal music player. Only the ability to create playlists right now Would like to pick individual artists and songs from my library Also the ability to replay a song. A shuffle feature would b nice as well
Working good for me personally
by yaaaaaboiiiiiiiiii on 2019/12/11 03:12
iPhone 8+ sitting on iOS 12.4, the app works perfect with both of my OG Megabooms. it’s unfortunate so many people have are having issues I hope they get resolved. Seems like iOS 13 could have broken something also.
I have to buy a new speaker
by Jordanfame on 2020/03/08 00:32
I love the UE Boom, that’s why it saddens me that after maybe a year of purchase it started to give me problems. When I click on a song sometimes I have to press play/pause in order to hear the song through the speaker. Also, when I’m click through songs the volume would get high and play loudly. It has become such an inconvenience I have to buy a new speaker.
Alarm Feature Stopped Working
by Azian_Doll on 2020/03/04 11:55
On this new update. The app shows the alarm is on but the music is not playing like it was before this new app update. I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled the app to no avail. The main reason I bought this speaker was the alarm feature. Fix this please!!!!!
Pairing takes a while
by qjayjr on 2020/06/11 19:19
I recently pair my UE BOOM 2 with the UE MEGABOOM and they sound great but overtime the audio will drop frequently, the streaming quality is dropping at a high hat or a Bass Punch type song , it really sounds horrible , the last update I personally did not have that problem but overall everything is good
The app makes an otherwise good speaker terrible
by AVgearfreak on 2020/06/10 19:29
I bought two Megaboom3 speakers to use as a stereo pair. The app is so bad that using the speakers as a stereo pair is a total fail. Takes many attempts to get the app to connect the second speaker as a stereo pair. Once connected as a stereo pair, constant dropouts and speaker disconnects make the stereo mode unusable. I have no connectivity problems whatsoever when connecting the Megaboom 3 speakers to either my iPad or Galaxy S10+ without the app. Sadly, no stereo without the app.

All other apps just update. With that... why is the Boom all of the sudden sounding like chipmunks in a distant cave? I’ve not hear this poor quality since my brother ripped speakers out of an old 50’s stereo in his first attempt at a free “ system sound “ at 12 years of age. I will continue to try to get the app to upgrade and open to get sound controls but I may have to just say screw-it and avoid this company in my next purchase.
Horrible at best
by product19 on 2020/08/29 17:02
The app is simple but a challenge. Before I bought my second Megaboom 3 I had issues at times connecting my Megaboom 2. I just bought Megaboom 3, added it to the app, to run “party” Stereo, Double - the app at many times loses connection to one of the speakers, them that blows up your other connection to the other speaker. At best you have to shut down and manually turn off all your speakers then relaunch. The sound for “double” & “stereo” would be great if it worked and didn’t have the cracking on the 2nd speaker you’re adding. It’s a connectivity issue - app is most frustrating than helpful and that’s too bad I might return the 3 because I got it to wirelessly connect my music from room-to-room.
Very Disappointed
by madre2be2020 on 2020/05/09 15:08
I always loved these mega boom speakers because of how much bass they had. I get 2 speakers wanting to pair them together and one speaker always says 0% charge on a full battery and does nothing but crackle throughout an entire song and it’s very annoying. I eventually just had to unpair it and use 1 speaker which totally defeats the purpose of buying 2 speakers to entertain my family game night. Please fix! These speakers are not cheap!!
Won’t play selected songs
by Flash2011 on 2020/02/28 13:31
I’m not sure what has happened. I’ve had my speaker for about 3 years now. At first I could play any random song on my playlist. Now, if I try to select a song that is out of sequence it won’t play. What’s the solution for this issue? This is extremely annoying while trying to teach my water aerobics class.
Updates and bugs fix on your app
by Ace4128 on 2020/02/04 01:05
I go listen to music or anything. It try’s disconnect or even if I’m not close to it. Sound equality. Is goood. But sometimes kick off. I’m still your fan of this product. Make big update on this please.
Just updated to iOS 13.2
by silosnitsuj on 2019/11/17 01:38
Just updated to ios13.2 and now I can’t connect to my speaker. I tried restarting my phone. Deleting and reinstalling the app. Nothing. What’s happening here? UPDATE: Deleting and reinstalled the app worked for me after all. Just hope I don’t have to do this every time.
Great app and speaker
by Nick-o-name on 2020/01/16 21:14
Please add the ability to set the volume of the startup and turn off sound. It’s cool to get feedback when it connects but sometimes it’s just too loud in a quiet room when you want a low volume
IOS 13
by 3mm3Ann28 on 2019/12/18 18:44
I Am really disappointed that I can not get speaker to work with iOS 13. I have followed all instruction from ultimate ears support and from Apple genius. My Boom3 is still not recognized by my iPhone or IPad. I have also uninstalled app and reinstalled, reset my devices. Nothing is working! I love the speaker,it is an awesome product, I hope I am able to resolve this issue.
Lots of room for improvement
by Ashlae W. on 2020/07/11 17:47
We have a Megaboom that couldn’t hold a charge (would die after a day of use) (it’s less than a year old!) so we bought two BOOM 3s thinking that would solve the problem. It did solve the charging problem BUT now the music we play is constantly skipping, the speakers don’t stay partied up, etc. We’re returning them and getting Sonos speakers. Not worth the headache.
unreliable
by Fozzy Bearr<3 on 2020/03/19 17:27
the partyUp feature and the EQ is the only thing i use this app for and it can barely do that.... i have three Megablasts and pairing all three AND using alexa to change the song/pick a new song/next track etc. is like a miracle. some days it works seamlessly, other days i literally give up and come back to it later. not great
Disappointed
by Melissa Cli on 2020/09/20 11:05
I bought 4 speakers for cheer performances. The speakers are difficult to get all of them connected, they don’t stay connected, i can’t get to far away before the music cuts out. If I’m just connected with one speaker via my ps Bluetooth, I can get pretty far away but not if I’m using this crappy app. I’m very disappointed.
Great speakers, incredibly hard to double up
by A 'Merican on 2019/12/24 21:30
I honestly hate giving this a bad review but these speakers are very frustrating. If you are purchasing to be able to sync more that one speaker, do not buy. You will spend more time trying to figure that out than listening to music (yes I upgraded the speaker software.) If you only want one speaker with great sound this is for you.
Worked great until
by Drake Burger on 2020/07/09 00:21
2nd day using the app I wake up and my phone will connect just fine to either bluetooth ports. The APP won’t register the connection for whatever reason. If you’re making an app for a $400+ speaker, I’d make sure the app worked. I’ve tried forgetting the device option on my phone and re-connecting, nada. Re-downloaded the app, nada. Tried someone else’s phone, nada. I was able to rename my Hyperboom. Can’t access the EQ settings now though since the app won’t connect. All my settings for all apps have bluetooth enabled. 🤷🏻‍♂️ Guess I’ll try to return it or hopefully trade it out. I’ll update the review if it gets fixed. Useless app atm.
Updates FUBAR
by Giacomino on 2020/04/19 17:29
Boom 2s in stereo mean awesome sound anywhere anytime. That is unless updates prevent pairing. Bluetooth connects to both units. UE fubar app “sees” both speakers UNTIL double up is pressed. Then only one speaker or the other but not both. Same w party up. Pleas fix or find the programmers who messed this up and flog them with wet fettuccine noodles. I’m close to taking a sledgehammer to both speakers and wearing a “DOWN WITH LOGITECH” Sandwichboard outside their headquarters!
Cut issues
by J.r127 on 2019/12/23 02:34
Love the speaker it’s never failed me at my parties but recently every now and then the music cuts in and out my phone is still playing the music but just hear parts of it. What should I do?
Always on = always out of battery
by iMathew! on 2020/09/21 16:48
Please allow users to deactivate the always on power feature! It used to be a toggle in the app. My speakers are constantly losing battery for a feature that I can live without. Reaching physically for my speaker is faster than going into the app to turn it on anyway. Is it too much to ask?! I regret ever updating the internal software.
Skips terribly!!
by Wild Will Hudson on 2019/10/19 04:01
The new app for mega boom causes a bad 1/2 second skip in the music every 3-5 minutes ensuring a very unpleasant pause in virtually every song. The little hipster software engineers at UE had one job... Make a tiny app that plays music on their hardware reliably. Ooops! Seems they have some work to do! Or maybe they think we shouldn’t mind constant hiccups.

I wanted to get this app for my boom speaker but the app didn’t work for that speaker type so they definitely need to make an update or a new app of the boom speaker.

Stop messing around
by keeshkitty on 2020/09/19 02:15
Quit messing with the u booms. You have ruined it. I can’t even get both my speakers to play at same time anymore. You had a great product. Millennials need to get the wise saying “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” and write it on their foreheads or better yet tattoo it!
Hmmm don't know if anyone read 👉UPDATES?👈
by ice239291 on 2020/09/17 15:46
Wish there. Was more updates on. This. App. It would work making are. System better and Cooler. Being update I WISH FOR 👉UPDATES👈. FOR MY. PRODUCT MEGA BOOM
Seemingly useless
by ghahebdjtbtbrhskala on 2020/09/16 05:17
It’s unclear what, if anything, this app does.
No Bueno
by Rona-Rona on 2020/09/14 18:36
I got two HYPERBOOM on party up mode and they keep disconnecting and not wanting to synce up anymore they don’t stay connected for more then 5-10 min on stereo mode
Incrementally crap!
by Apoel Jason on 2020/09/13 07:02
This is the first time that I write a review about anything. But I am doing so because I am really really and incrementally frustrated by the speakers. They wont connect to the bluetooth. The party-up function wont work. I cant even update them. You are selling some expensive speakers, you guys. Stop being so cheap!
Just doesn’t work
by nock8008008 on 2020/09/11 13:27
I only gave the app to double up two speakers. Both speakers are exactly the same and brand new. The app connects to both but will not double them up as advertised. So frustrating.
Needs Spotify Feature
by Bea Benitez on 2020/09/11 00:51
I really enjoyed the andriod version of this app. This version is clean and simple but it REALLY needs to include Spotify for choosing the playlists. I don&#39;t use it anymore because of this. I am plainly disappointed.
Wireless is trash. Be an adult

What happened to DJ mode?
by 3838718187 on 2020/09/06 06:20
I loved this speaker because my friends and I could trade DJ duties in the app. This feature has disappeared. It makes it very difficult to share the speaker with those who don’t have the app. Very disappointing to see the speaker getting WORSE with updates.
Horrible at best
by product19 on 2020/08/29 17:02

Bluetooth????
by Ya Bum on 2020/08/25 15:18
I’m currently playing music on my speakers but the app keeps saying I need to allow access to Bluetooth on it...newsflash...that’s not even an option in the app settings on my iPhone.
Party up mode don’t work
by hahhdhdb on 2020/08/24 02:18
I can’t pair my megaboom and ue boom together.
Worst app ever
by Joan Jett Fan on 2020/08/20 19:34
This thing is so buggy and inconsistent now that it just constantly locks up. Did you have this app developed overseas? Can I roll back to the last version that this problem did not exist. Do you actually perform beta testing? I don’t think so or you can just care less about your customers that you just throw the revised code out there? Right now, I can turn on one speaker and when I go to Party Up it shows my other 4 speakers but the app hangs and I am unable to add the other speakers. Please make this a priority fix and have Americans do the coding. You get what you pay for in most cases. I spent a lot of money on all these speakers and can’t even use them now.
Fix it
by David Rainer on 2020/08/18 18:47
Can you guys please please please fix this app??? I have purchased three of your UE Boom 2 speakers for my shop and they sometimes speed up the music for a bit and also make nasty distortion crackly sounds and cut out and it is horrible. They work 70% of the time but definitely have issues and a lot of users say older versions of the software worked much better.
Doesn’t work
by bonenail on 2020/08/15 21:35
I generally don’t write reviews but feel compelled to do so now. I’ve had my mega boom 3 for 2 years and have enjoyed many hours of music with it..BUT.. now after upgrading the app my mega boom app cannot find my speaker on my Bluetooth connection even when the Bluetooth shows that it’s on showing the mega boom box connection.. the app is totally flawed, full of bugs and just doesn’t work. I want my speaker to work like it did on the previous app. I wouldn’t that recommend anybody buy anything mega boom until this fatal app flaw is fixed... give me back my music!
Worked for a while
by Ir4512784 on 2020/08/15 15:04
Worked for the first week or 2 that I had my new Hyperboom. Now the app won’t recognize that I’ve connected to the speaker via Bluetooth. App is essentially worthless.
Controlling EQ is nice but app has an annoying glitch
by Timothy Kaldas on 2020/08/15 12:03
The equalizer is helpful for getting the right sound out of your speaker but the app appears to interrupt play at times when switching between apps on your phone. I deleted the app and the problem went away. My phone&#39;s memory is pretty full so perhaps this is less of an issue with phones with less strain on their memory but for me this was an annoying problem. I&#39;ll reinstall when I want to adjust the equalizer and immediately delete again.
The app is getting worse
by "JUST DO IT" on 2020/08/14 16:36
Bought 3 Boom 2’s a year ago and once I updated the software on the speakers everything worked great. I could party all of the speakers up and they all connected and I could see the names of each one. Now recently in the party up feature it doesn’t give the name of the speakers so I can pick and choose which ones I want to connect. It just says Boom 2. When I am picking a host speaker I can see the names. Now it also seems to be skipping more often when using the party up feature. The host speaker seems okay but the auxiliary speakers skip around. This app is becoming pretty much worthless. I was planning on buying additional speakers because I could connect them all through the app but now I am seriously reconsidering! I would be happy to increase the star rating but please fix these issues as soon as possible or I may just end up going with another brand!
Megaboom bass performance
by MrMaximusGladias on 2020/08/08 17:24
August 2019 they somehow nerfed all of my megabooms. They took all the bass out for a more detailed audio. They have rolled out updates that take away the rewind song functions. My megaboom bass is no longer loud and the sounds are vary cheep now. Lots of people have agreed. Please update the sound so we can have our original performance. Make the app run more smooth because the app crashes a lot now. I have 10 Megabooms now and each one I updated had taken away its bass power acoustics And I lost my money choosing I wanted this thing and then you guys made it something less i’ve had them for years and all the batteries also die at 50 percent charge. Please fix the problems and not let this be the EOL of this product. The app no longer works on iphone SE
This app is hot dog poop
by Dareyoutogobackaftertryingthis on 2020/07/29 01:28
The one time I was finally able to get my speaker to show up in the app, I adjusted the equalizer - and now it’s stuck that way, super tinny for podcast vocals, since I cannot get it to show up in the app again. So despite the speaker itself being great (Boom / Boom 2, idr) with a remarkable amount of bass for a unit of its size, its now FUXKED by this half-baked, all-style-and-no-substance app.
Needs iOS Shortcuts support
by nicolasd on 2020/07/25 20:58
I want to be able to tap a shortcut and power on/off my BOOM. I’m sure there are other features UE could add. Right now the only point to this app is remotely powering on/off my BOOM and firmware updates.
Not Bad
by noblase_ on 2020/07/23 23:51
Only thing I wanted to ask is when will they add the Spotify option for the magic button?
Not happy this isn’t compatible
by RisaRae84 on 2020/07/21 22:24
I ordered the wonder boom for this application, it says it’s not compatible. Not happy, Logitech. Not happy at all.
Unstable
by Mikey70G on 2020/07/19 15:38
The app is unstable and party up works intermittently. The UE line of speakers are great individually but doesn’t work as advertised with party up. Needs a firmware update and new software.
Unsatisfied Disappointed Upset
by Dorpond on 2020/07/18 12:53
So for a few years now I’ve been using my Megaboom speaker and loving it. I decided I wanted to expand my musical range throughout the back yard and decided to buy another Megaboom. When I got it, I was excited, and connected it up to this app. It said I needed an update for the new speaker, so I put it on. Excited, I tried the party up feature and was a bit confused how it worked, but I figured it out. I immediately noticed the new speaker didn’t sound as good as my old, as the new sounded more flat than my old. Then I walked the new speaker about 25 feet into another room and noticed the new speaker was cutting out. WHAT?!? So I did some tests and went outside where there are no walls. I got the same results as the new speaker was cutting out after a distance of about 25 feet. So I did another test and turned off partyup; I then connected to only one speaker via Bluetooth and set my phone down on the table. I then walked around my back yard with the original speaker, and I was able to cover my whole back yard without issues. I then tried it with the new speaker and was able to cover the whole back yard as well. So by themselves, they seem to have good range, but when paired through Partyup, the range drops dramatically. What is the range of Partyup speakers anyway? I have not been able to find this information. Had I know this, I would not have purchased a second Megaboom. What good is having 2 speakers so close to each other? The goal was to cover my whole back yard (pool area and the fire pit area). I wrote support for help, but I might just end up sending this back to Best Buy.
Block party
by jolan2810282 on 2020/07/16 01:13
This app is only useful to turn on the speaker and the block party feature but it was removed in this update? Block party made the speaker extremely practical now it’s no better than other speakers at the same price point.
App is ok
by E man awsome on 2020/07/14 18:56
I wish there was a function to lower the volume of the “speakers sounds” - I like sound feedback to my button presses but the built in bongo’s are WAY too loud. The app also can’t connect to the speaker unless the phone is connected via Bluetooth which I *guess* I understand the technical reason why but.. it’s 2020 I should be able to connect multiple devices like the Bose ones. It also randomly mutes the audio from my device.. like I’ll be playing a YouTube video, the sound will go out but the video will still be playing.
Battery on app always says 0%
by KarlyMareka on 2020/07/14 15:28
I downloaded the app to check the battery status of my boom, but it always reads 0% on the app whether it is charged or dead, even if it is plugged in and charging. Not useful.
Bad compatibility with iOS
by kstate7 on 2020/07/13 18:38
The Megaboom 3 speaker is a good product. It’s compatibility with Apple’s software is terrible. The speaker battery percentage will not show up in Apple’s battery widget and the speaker will not support the Spotify integration. Per the manufacturer, both issues are because of Apple’s iOS locking out these features. Pretty disappointing given that Apple sells the Megaboom 3 on its website. My cheapo Amazon speaker used to work better. Disappointing.
Lots of room for improvement
by Ashlae W. on 2020/07/11 17:47
We have a Megaboom that couldn’t hold a charge (would die after a day of use) (it’s less than a year old!) so we bought two BOOM 3s thinking that would solve the problem. It did solve the charging problem BUT now the music we play is constantly skipping, the speakers don’t stay partied up, etc. We’re returning them and getting Sonos speakers. Not worth the headache.
Where is SPOTIFY in the game
by Megaboom3 guy on 2020/07/11 03:08
I really like the app and the speakers I currently own 3 megaboom3 but I switch from Apple Music ti Spotify and was so disappointed that the app won’t support it for the party up other than that highly recommend also can you get it for Mac OS
Love the app and speaker
by CHRIS5377. on 2020/07/10 16:36
The app and speaker pair together really well, but I wish that there were more “one tap to playlist” music services. Personally I think spotify and youtube music would be great additions.
Worked great until
by Drake Burger on 2020/07/09 00:21
2nd day using the app I wake up and my phone will connect just fine to either bluetooth ports. The APP won’t register the connection for whatever reason. If you’re making an app for a $400+ speaker, I’d make sure the app worked. I’ve tried forgetting the device option on my phone and re-connecting, nada. Re-downloaded the app, nada. Tried someone else’s phone, nada. I was able to rename my Hyperboom. Can’t access the EQ settings now though since the app won’t connect. All my settings for all apps have bluetooth enabled. 🤷🏻‍♂️ Guess I’ll try to return it or hopefully trade it out. I’ll update the review if it gets fixed. Useless app atm.
Block Party Missing
by Ni.k.ki on 2020/07/06 05:46
With the recent update, it has removed the “block party” option. Block Party allows a few people to become “the DJ” for the speaker. Please restore it!!!! It’s so convenient when I have friends over for BBQ
Great speaker. Awful app
by TheMuzikalPoet on 2020/07/05 16:54
App doesn’t recognize that the speaker is paired.
Please fix
by Jesusisreal568 on 2020/07/03 14:01
For those using this app to judge the speaker itself this isn’t the place to do it, you are rating the app. I was using this app it has never failed me until now I recently started using it again when it tells me my speaker is at 0% when it’s fully charged, I want this fixed please along with the alarm it never stays the same volume I set it at. I end up getting blasted by the speaker because it’s volume was at the max for some reason
Update impossible
by mzmscoyote on 2020/07/02 19:33
It tells me i need to update my speaker. When i followed the path i ended at a dead end. It said to wanted to send an email to explain how to update the speaker. I enabled it and zip. Nada. Hit a dead end and no email was ever sent.
Cannot connect second speaker
by Kenka70 on 2020/06/27 06:31
After the latest update, it doesn’t recognize my second speaker. Poor.
Issue with battery status
by orakzai.shahid on 2020/06/26 07:57
The battery jumped from 100 to 80 to 60 in a matter of a couple of hours with the only use being me checking the battery. The software is flawed.
Suggestion For App
by Poolman777 on 2020/06/24 14:46
On the next update can you create the way to listen to music like a normal music player. Only the ability to create playlists right now Would like to pick individual artists and songs from my library Also the ability to replay a song. A shuffle feature would b nice as well
Works great for me.
by EnriqueMTZ on 2020/06/24 00:15
Every feature works for me I have 3 speakers Boom 2 and 2 Megaboom 3s all futures including Party Up work!
No support
by Sfgjdagj on 2020/06/22 03:38
The app doesn’t connect to my speaker. I’ve reached out for support multiple times and get no help or response. Would not reccomend.
Does not work for all speakers
by Waldooooo0oo on 2020/06/20 07:20
Bought UE boom 2. Works great. Bought a wonderboom to dual speaker but it is not compatible with app. Disappointing app but good speaker
please implement thissss
by jmanuelrondon on 2020/06/19 04:07
ok so, i bought the BOOM 3 speaker 6 months ago and it’s been great, i love it, and i use it almost every day. the app is great too, but i would like to have a timer feature, so i can fall asleep listening to music and after a certain amount of time the speaker would turn off automatically.
Most recent update is much worst than previous.
by Small Axe1 on 2020/06/17 18:07
I rarely ever write reviews, but my frustration with the last update has forced me to do so. The updates over the last few years have been improving incrementally, and the last one I was really satisfied with, but the last update reminds me of the poor performance of about 2 years ago. I don’t understand how that could be. I have 10 UE Megabooms and now the custom names don’t consistently show, which makes it difficult to identify which speaker I’m connecting to, even worse, after 10-15 minutes of playing, the partyup feature turns off by itself. So upsetting. This is with all speakers in range and with over 75% charge, and the main speaker in range and fully charged. I was planning to get the new subwoofer, but with the inconsistency of the software development, I am unsure if it’s worthwhile.
Block Party
by 71614072 on 2020/06/17 00:24
Last update removed Block Party. Having multiple people connected to the speaker was a huge selling point for my Boom 2s. Multiple friends of mine utilize the feature and now the update essentially “broke” what didn’t need to be fixed.
Thumbs down 👎🏼
by Femme x on 2020/06/15 06:36
This hasn’t worked for me at all. Will not recognize my speaker is paired.
No Spotify Support
by SupportSpotify on 2020/06/13 19:17
Add spotify support, not everyone uses apple music. They have it on android so why not apple devices.
It’s amazing🤩🔥🤘🏽

It’s really work
Pairing takes a while
by qjayjr on 2020/06/11 19:19
I recently pair my UE BOOM 2 with the UE MEGABOOM and they sound great but overtime the audio will drop frequently, the streaming quality is dropping at a high hat or a Bass Punch type song , it really sounds horrible , the last update I personally did not have that problem but overall everything is good
The app makes an otherwise good speaker terrible
by AVgearfreak on 2020/06/10 19:29
I bought two Megaboom3 speakers to use as a stereo pair. The app is so bad that using the speakers as a stereo pair is a total fail. Takes many attempts to get the app to connect the second speaker as a stereo pair. Once connected as a stereo pair, constant dropouts and speaker disconnects make the stereo mode unusable. I have no connectivity problems whatsoever when connecting the Megaboom 3 speakers to either my iPad or Galaxy S10+ without the app. Sadly, no stereo without the app.
Block Party!!!!
by Liquid joy on 2020/06/06 13:42
The last update (7.5.1, or possibly 7.5.0) removed Block Party which is the reason I (and many friends) use this App and these speakers. It is essential. Please, please, hurry and restore it.
Awesome app
by jdogsavage on 2020/06/06 03:53
Great app but can you guys a Spotify
Alarm stopped working
by Hliu88 on 2020/06/05 07:10
Use to love this speaker but the alarm feature doesn’t work anymore. I’ll set the alarm but it doesn’t go off at the time I set it for. PLEASE FIX THIS ISSUE!!!
Needs old option to turn off remote power
by Mjott on 2020/05/31 12:58
Love these speakers but the new app no longer allows you to turn off remote power feature. This feature drains the battery when the speaker is not in use and is not worth it for many users like myself. Seems like the new app is a huge step backwards for UE since I have to keep the speakers on the charger constantly if I want a fully charged speaker the following weekend when I use it. UE needs to bring back the option to turn off this remote feature.
Why no Spotify integration
by Kevin & Joy on 2020/05/31 00:00
I can still play Spotify since through Spotify I can comtrol which speakers it plays on. But for the life of me I don’t know why the UE app only supports Apple Music, Amazon Music and Deezer (whatever that is...). App does have handy reference info and an EQ.
Quality App
by Sir Dominos on 2020/05/30 01:27
In my experience, this app has been very convenient, simple, and easy to use. I find the simplicity very helpful when I want to quickly change a setting such as the built-in equalizer, or the volume control, as it is right there when I open the app. It doesn’t over-complicate or clutter things, which I find to reflect the simplicity of the speaker itself. The only problem I myself have experienced is being unable to update my speaker, as the app suggests I should, but I believe that problem to be with my speaker itself, not the app.
Horrible
by Laurie Frame on 2020/05/29 21:55
Unable to pair megablast and a mega boom on the same app!
False advertising
by Etman7 on 2020/05/28 01:16
This app is NOT compatible with all Boom speakers.
UE BOOM 2 NOT RECOGNIZED IN APP

Nightmares with pairing 3 boom speakers, thumbs down
by Up yourz on 2020/05/20 03:55
Once I am able to get all 3 speakers paired it sounds great.. only problem is that process usually takes 10-20 minutes of me messing with the app and my Bluetooth settings before it finally decides it wants pair all 3 together and work right (absolutely unacceptable). These are cool for river floats or hikes (with one speaker) but the “block party” feature is a joke.... don’t expect it to work flawlessly... it will give you a headache a frustrate the heck out of any tech savvy person. Thumbs DOWN!!!!
App & speaker needs work
by USA.1st on 2020/05/16 01:08
It does not sync with the volume of device being used with it; apple or Samsung. No previous track on device.
App went to crap
by BrotherDavid09 on 2020/05/15 23:09
The last update has ruined the the app. Speaker cuts out and block party was removed. Block party was the main reason why I even bought the speaker in the first place.
Bring back ability to turn off remote power!!!!
by bert618 on 2020/05/15 14:11
This has been one of the most versatile speakers (UE Boom series). My original UE Boom still lasts over 15 hours and hold its charges for well over 6 months. That was until I decided to get UE Megaboom. It has a new app that allows you to remotely turn on or off the speaker. It seemed pretty cool but I was wondering how much battery drain it would be as it is essentially communicating with the speaker constantly. The app also told me my UE Boom needs a firmware update. After I did the update, the speakers power started draining like crazy in its off state. I left the power for both speaker in the “soft-off” state at 70%/40% battery for UE Megaboom and UE Boom. 5 days later with 0 usage, the battery went down to 40% and 20% respectively!! This is a TERRIBLE NEW FEATURE! Please add back the ability to turn off the ability to remote turn on the speaker. After I did a hard reset on the speakers, I left them unused for 2 weeks, and the battery is still 40%/20% today. I re-paired them today to my phone. But I expect the battery to continue to drain now the ability to turn them on and off remotely is back. Please add the ability to turn off this “feature” which many considers to be a bug.

Many opportunities available
by BrightonY125 on 2020/05/14 02:47
There are so many great thing the creators could implement with this app, but they don’t. Bluetooth connectivity with party mode is still sketchy, and there are a lot of features missing!
Non-functional software
by Eolnshurdlu on 2020/05/13 07:37
The software does not function because UE can not provide a firmware update. Boom 2 speakers badly need a third-party solution since UE can not properly support their own devices.
Good speaker, poor features
by Ariel_Levy on 2020/05/13 03:32
The speaker sound quality is amazing, let’s get that straight. However, there is no support for Spotify for the One Touch Playlist feature, whenever I try to Party Up two speakers the receiving speaker gets choppy and get cut out a lot when it gets only about 15ft away from the host speaker, sticky party up feature doesn’t work, most of the time the app tells me the battery for my speakers are 0% which is incorrect, and whenever I play music from Spotify, YouTube, basically anything that’s not Apple Music the speakers pop by playing at full volume for like half a second before going back down to the volume they’re supposed to be at. Love the brand, speaker quality, and customer support, but these issues HAVE to be addressed.
Part Up feature stopped working
by irvinec200 on 2020/05/13 00:19
Recently bought a new BOOM3 speaker and in the second week the Party Up feature in the app won’t work. Due to this problem I am unable to connect multiple devices at once.
Battery drain
by OutRayGS on 2020/05/12 01:36
Removed ability to not have “wake from app” feature. It’s always on waiting to connect to app despite latest Bluetooth tech it still drains the battery. Love to be able to disable this feature so my battery will last longer like before this feature was removed.
Great sound, the app needs some work
by karina90 on 2020/05/09 20:41
I love my speakers, they have clear and loud sound, perfect with the party up option, some times the app glitches and you have to uninstall the app, remove the devices from the Bluetooth memory and do it all over again... can be a bit annoying but i still likes speakers :)
Very Disappointed
by madre2be2020 on 2020/05/09 15:08
I always loved these mega boom speakers because of how much bass they had. I get 2 speakers wanting to pair them together and one speaker always says 0% charge on a full battery and does nothing but crackle throughout an entire song and it’s very annoying. I eventually just had to unpair it and use 1 speaker which totally defeats the purpose of buying 2 speakers to entertain my family game night. Please fix! These speakers are not cheap!!
Doesn’t Detect or Pair Speakers
by ZMPN10 on 2020/05/06 19:50
Bought two with the intention of pairing them to play together. The app never detects the speakers to turn them on. You can manually turn them on using the power button on the speaker and play one single speaker. Since the app does not detect the speakers I am not able to “Party Up” to engage the second speaker simultaneously. Battery indicator also does not function. Even when the speaker is fully charged the app shows 0% for the one speaker. Regretting the purchase!
Don’t buy the speaker!!
by Other fish in the sea on 2020/05/05 21:41
I have a regular Boom for years now. I then got the book 3. In the app it said I could connect the 2 speakers together. Nope. Now the app is telling me I need to update my regular Boom. I’ve updated it. Still doesn’t work. Do not buy any of this product. Even the website doesn’t work. Terrible. After waiting a while it wants to work. The speaker is a good speaker. I think it’s just the app. The app is useless besides pairing the speakers together. It’s a hassle
Speakers cut in and out
by Eric18284384 on 2020/05/04 13:54
The speakers cut in and out when they are paired even when only a few feet apart.
Why no Wonderboom 2 support?
by gjtfreak on 2020/05/02 20:30
This app works great with my previous UE boom speaker which I’ve had for years and loved. But it was time for an upgrade so I went out and bought the Wonderboom 2. I absolutely love the speaker but why is there no app support for it like the rest of the boom speakers have. It’s such a great speaker so I just can’t wrap my head around this decision by UE. I really hope they add support in a future version of the app so I can have all the same great features that my much older Boom speaker has on my much newer Wonderboom 2.
This kills the volume of my mega boom 3
by koryfly on 2020/05/01 19:04
I almost took my speaker back because it was wimpy with this app running. I deleted it and the speaker instantly increased its volume by 40%. Go figure
Email to update app
by Shimmer401 on 2020/04/28 15:17
The email is blank to sender. App is now useless
Updates FUBAR
by Giacomino on 2020/04/19 17:29
Boom 2s in stereo mean awesome sound anywhere anytime. That is unless updates prevent pairing. Bluetooth connects to both units. UE fubar app “sees” both speakers UNTIL double up is pressed. Then only one speaker or the other but not both. Same w party up. Pleas fix or find the programmers who messed this up and flog them with wet fettuccine noodles. I’m close to taking a sledgehammer to both speakers and wearing a “DOWN WITH LOGITECH” Sandwichboard outside their headquarters!
App Does Not Work After Sync
by Chester410 on 2020/04/16 00:18
1. Downloaded app 2. Connected device to speaker with Bluetooth 3. App does not recognize device, just says “comeback to the app” Megaboom 3
Worst app EVER!
by POW Tramp on 2020/04/14 15:28
If I didn’t own the speakers first, the app alone would be enough to make me choose another speaker. Always, literally every time I use it to turn on the speakers is shuts them off and I have to restart. So FRUSTRATING! Update: 4/14/20 The new version seems to actually be worse. Now it can’t find the speakers half the time despite updating speaker software. Why is this so difficult?! Please fix it! I LOVE the speakers and HATE the app!!
ONE ISSUE
by Instaswaggot sike.. on 2020/04/14 10:20
I rely on this app souly to wake up in the morning because previously it used to go all the way up as high as I set it on the alarm but that function has been bugging out lately and It’s been a huge issue for me. Not to mention I work at T-Mobile and we sell this product and I’d like to be able to say it’s reliable, I love the products let’s get the software running at the same pace. The alarm goes down to its own level every time you re-enter the app so there’s no reliability that it’s going to stay at the level that you set it to. Huge problem for me. Hope this is resolved soon.
Worked well for a minute :(
by R_J_C on 2020/04/14 00:33
Worked the first few times I used it and then the sound just stopped. Went through every FAQ, googled it, looked on YouTube for answers and nothing. Says it’s connected and playing but no sound. I can only use my phone to turn the speaker on or off - that’s a useless and VERY EXPENSIVE WASTE OF MY MONEY. Get something else if you want quality and ease of use.
Mega boom 3
by S RODZ on 2020/04/11 18:01
I’m about to return this speaker. For one the battery life is not 20 hrs and two the speaker lowers when a text or notification comes in and the volume does not increase I have to walk back to the phone and raise the volume HugoRodz
I just purchased and will return
by Littlelovey on 2020/04/08 19:52
I do research for everything. All my research led me to the mega boom 3. Brand new but not loud at all. It’s synchronized with my phone which I don’t like because it caps at my phones volume! Why???! I compared it with the wonderboom 2 and the charge 4. BOTH ARE LOUDER. how is a tiny wonderboom louder than my speaker? Will be returning.
Battery slowly dies with new update
by Daretruth on 2020/04/06 06:46
In previous versions you could disable &#34;remote power&#34; and the battery would last forever. Now it has a small constant drain for Bluetooth that cannot be disabled. This change basically means you will need to recharge your speaker much more often. Thumbs down . 😟
Audio Skipping with multiple speakers!!! UPDATE******
by Nestor The Tech Guyy on 2020/04/06 04:33
Hey, I’ve recently bought a HYPERBOOM and loved it soooo much. Love the audio and the bass and clarity of it all. No tweaking has to be made for the sound at all. Now, I love the speaker so much I bought another HYPERBOOM. The issue I face now is when I pair the 2 speakers, they sound beautiful and awesome but, about every 15 mins or so there’s a audio skip or mis-sync between the 2 and my phone are literally right next to them. This alone has gotten be frustrated because I then have to power off the speakers to put them back to normal cause the app then freezes. This really takes away a whole lot from the experience. Possibly may be returning the second speaker if I can’t pair them both without having any issues whatsoever. Please, please guys, get this fixed as soon as possible. **** Just found out that I’ve been listening to songs in wrong left and right channels. So there is actually no way of telling which hyperboom is broadcasting L or R channel on the app neither on the speaker. The way I found out was playing a left and right test on YouTube and it played the opposite. It doesn’t matter either where you place the speaker in the app either, You can label Hperboom 1 hyperboom 2 and place the speaker side by side but it actually won’t matter either until you actually press the 2 arrows going side by side to officially change the channel stream. This is a big no. This needs to be fixed ASAP. There should be labels in the app or on the speaker displaying who’s playing Left channel and who’s playing Right channel instead of opening YouTube for a sound test each time.

REMOTE CONTROL FEATURE
by DryNoodle on 2020/03/28 09:27
Last app had the feature to turn on and off the remote feature but, now in this app not only is it removed but the speaker is constantly on and draining battery. Keep the old app until remote feature in added and also other features are added. No real insensitive to download this one.
I don’t understand
by LovelyLily487 on 2020/03/27 22:40
I had a UE mega boom back in 2015 loved it. It blew so I bought UE boom in 2018. But I keep having app issues or maybe Bluetooth issues where the app can’t find my speaker so it won’t connect or turn it on even with the speaker right next to it. Or example last night every few seconds it turn on, connect, disconnect, repeat until I finally said forget it and threw it in my bag. Is there a software update I missed? Or am app update I don’t understand why it won’t do the basic functions now. :/
No feasible way to update the app!
by Ifuseekamy18 on 2020/03/27 02:15
So how do you update the app? They take you to a page where you’re composing an email. They do not provide you with an email address btw. So you either have to use your psychic abilities or go online and look for this nonexistent email address to send them for a software update.
Wish it had great connection with multiple speakers
by N3ffsaid on 2020/03/25 02:34
I gave it a three star, because although I love the speakers.....it just seems to lack a great connection when adding more. I recently got the new Hyperboom and it’s AMAZING, but when I try to pair it with other speakers I have......it just skips. I walk maybe 5ft away with another speaker then it just seems like it loses connection, the app freezes when I want to turn off a speaker. I don’t know if it’s a small bug....but whatever it is I know it can be fixed. All I ask is for a better connection when adding speakers, I would like to have a speaker inside my house and one outside with no one going to look at me and say “umm what’s wrong with your speaker” Again great products, but the connection needs to be fixed.
Does not add second speaker
by 2 click will get you there on 2020/03/24 12:22
Works perfectly on iPhone but on the iPad it does not accept a second speaker. Keeps popping back to the bottom. Very annoying and no way to fix this. Seems to be an issue with the version. Have had these speakers for 2 years and are happy with them but the software lacks way behind.

No "previous track", rewind, or fast forward functions, only play/pause & "next track".
by َٰ on 2019/11/12 04:23
I bought this speaker mainly to listen to podcasts, audiobooks, and professional education courses I have to get through. As such, I use the “previous track” feature as heavily as the “next track”, and also heavily rely upon the ability to rewind or fast forward (controlling the track from your physical iPhone, this is achieved by holding down the forward or back button). However, the single “magic button” one button on the top of the speaker which is supposed to control music from the speaker without needing to access your device, can only do two things - press once to play or pause, tap twice to skip to next track. Tapping three times does nothing; upon reading the support page, it turns out “previous track” is not a function on this device, anything other than play\pause or next track must be done from your device. In addition, most accessories which use this single\double\triple tap system allow you to hold the second (or third) tap down as a press in order to (respectively) fast forward or rewind within a track. The speaker supports neither of these either. I would gladly edit and update this review should the manufacturer correct this and add any or all of these features on a update (the speaker can be updated through the app).

Mega Boom hiccups
by 𝕂𝕖𝕟𝕟𝕪𝕁𝕠𝕖 on 2020/02/24 08:20
I love this speaker...up until now. I just recently downloaded the latest firmware to enhance my speaker even more. I didn’t think it could get any better. I use for work, even the crew was amazed when I first brought it to work for the first time 5 years ago. Now they’re wondering what I did to it. All it does now is hiccup every 1-3 minutes through a song and it’s very annoying. Plus the Bass response isn’t anyway near what it used to be. So I had to tell them it was sabotaged by its own developers. That was a big decision I made 5 years ago. I read a lot of reviews on different speakers before I decided on this one. I was actually leaning pretty hard on a Polk Bluetooth speaker before I made the decision on this one. For $300 I would think I’d get a longer life expectancy. I guess it’s always a gamble...review or not. Well...that’s my sob story of the week. Bummed, KennyJoe
Most recent update is much worst than previous.
by Small Axe1 on 2020/06/17 18:07
I rarely ever write reviews, but my frustration with the last update has forced me to do so. The updates over the last few years have been improving incrementally, and the last one I was really satisfied with, but the last update reminds me of the poor performance of about 2 years ago. I don’t understand how that could be. I have 10 UE Megabooms and now the custom names don’t consistently show, which makes it difficult to identify which speaker I’m connecting to, even worse, after 10-15 minutes of playing, the partyup feature turns off by itself. So upsetting. This is with all speakers in range and with over 75% charge, and the main speaker in range and fully charged. I was planning to get the new subwoofer, but with the inconsistency of the software development, I am unsure if it’s worthwhile.
The app is getting worse
by "JUST DO IT" on 2020/08/14 16:36
Bought 3 Boom 2’s a year ago and once I updated the software on the speakers everything worked great. I could party all of the speakers up and they all connected and I could see the names of each one. Now recently in the party up feature it doesn’t give the name of the speakers so I can pick and choose which ones I want to connect. It just says Boom 2. When I am picking a host speaker I can see the names. Now it also seems to be skipping more often when using the party up feature. The host speaker seems okay but the auxiliary speakers skip around. This app is becoming pretty much worthless. I was planning on buying additional speakers because I could connect them all through the app but now I am seriously reconsidering! I would be happy to increase the star rating but please fix these issues as soon as possible or I may just end up going with another brand!
Megaboom bass performance
by MrMaximusGladias on 2020/08/08 17:24
August 2019 they somehow nerfed all of my megabooms. They took all the bass out for a more detailed audio. They have rolled out updates that take away the rewind song functions. My megaboom bass is no longer loud and the sounds are vary cheep now. Lots of people have agreed. Please update the sound so we can have our original performance. Make the app run more smooth because the app crashes a lot now. I have 10 Megabooms now and each one I updated had taken away its bass power acoustics And I lost my money choosing I wanted this thing and then you guys made it something less i’ve had them for years and all the batteries also die at 50 percent charge. Please fix the problems and not let this be the EOL of this product. The app no longer works on iphone SE

Controlling EQ is nice but app has an annoying glitch
by Timothy Kaldas on 2020/08/15 12:03
The equalizer is helpful for getting the right sound out of your speaker but the app appears to interrupt play at times when switching between apps on your phone. I deleted the app and the problem went away. My phone&#39;s memory is pretty full so perhaps this is less of an issue with phones with less strain on their memory but for me this was an annoying problem. I&#39;ll reinstall when I want to adjust the equalizer and immediately delete again.
Battery drain.
by MrEli on 2020/02/12 21:05
In the older version of the app that worked with this speaker there was an option to turn off remote power. It’s the option to be able to turn on and off the speaker with in the app. By having remote power on it drains the battery when you’re not even using it. For an example I would charge my speaker to 100%. It would sit in my back pack for 2-3 weeks. When I would ready to use my speaker the battery would be completely drained. When the option to turn off remote power my speaker would still be fully charged after sitting for 2-3 weeks. I really hope this option can come back.
Please fix
by Jesusisreal568 on 2020/07/03 14:01
For those using this app to judge the speaker itself this isn’t the place to do it, you are rating the app. I was using this app it has never failed me until now I recently started using it again when it tells me my speaker is at 0% when it’s fully charged, I want this fixed please along with the alarm it never stays the same volume I set it at. I end up getting blasted by the speaker because it’s volume was at the max for some reason

Suggestion !
by ccharles37 on 2019/10/08 01:13
You guys make awesome speakers! Super big fan and I use it during my morning shower everyday. One suggestion is Siri Shortcut support! You guys are sold at Apple Store&#39;s and use exclusively Music, but don&#39;t have support for Siri Shortcuts! It would be so nice to be able to ask Siri to turn my speaker on instead of opening up the app. Thanks for all your hard work :) big fan here!
Doesn’t work
by bonenail on 2020/08/15 21:35
I generally don’t write reviews but feel compelled to do so now. I’ve had my mega boom 3 for 2 years and have enjoyed many hours of music with it..BUT.. now after upgrading the app my mega boom app cannot find my speaker on my Bluetooth connection even when the Bluetooth shows that it’s on showing the mega boom box connection.. the app is totally flawed, full of bugs and just doesn’t work. I want my speaker to work like it did on the previous app. I wouldn’t that recommend anybody buy anything mega boom until this fatal app flaw is fixed... give me back my music!
Fix it
by David Rainer on 2020/08/18 18:47
Can you guys please please please fix this app??? I have purchased three of your UE Boom 2 speakers for my shop and they sometimes speed up the music for a bit and also make nasty distortion crackly sounds and cut out and it is horrible. They work 70% of the time but definitely have issues and a lot of users say older versions of the software worked much better.
Needs old option to turn off remote power
by Mjott on 2020/05/31 12:58
Love these speakers but the new app no longer allows you to turn off remote power feature. This feature drains the battery when the speaker is not in use and is not worth it for many users like myself. Seems like the new app is a huge step backwards for UE since I have to keep the speakers on the charger constantly if I want a fully charged speaker the following weekend when I use it. UE needs to bring back the option to turn off this remote feature.
Don’t buy the speaker!!
by Other fish in the sea on 2020/05/05 21:41
I have a regular Boom for years now. I then got the book 3. In the app it said I could connect the 2 speakers together. Nope. Now the app is telling me I need to update my regular Boom. I’ve updated it. Still doesn’t work. Do not buy any of this product. Even the website doesn’t work. Terrible. After waiting a while it wants to work. The speaker is a good speaker. I think it’s just the app. The app is useless besides pairing the speakers together. It’s a hassle
I don’t understand
by LovelyLily487 on 2020/03/27 22:40
I had a UE mega boom back in 2015 loved it. It blew so I bought UE boom in 2018. But I keep having app issues or maybe Bluetooth issues where the app can’t find my speaker so it won’t connect or turn it on even with the speaker right next to it. Or example last night every few seconds it turn on, connect, disconnect, repeat until I finally said forget it and threw it in my bag. Is there a software update I missed? Or am app update I don’t understand why it won’t do the basic functions now. :/
Great sound, the app needs some work
by karina90 on 2020/05/09 20:41
I love my speakers, they have clear and loud sound, perfect with the party up option, some times the app glitches and you have to uninstall the app, remove the devices from the Bluetooth memory and do it all over again... can be a bit annoying but i still likes speakers :)
Nightmares with pairing 3 boom speakers, thumbs down
by Up yourz on 2020/05/20 03:55
Once I am able to get all 3 speakers paired it sounds great.. only problem is that process usually takes 10-20 minutes of me messing with the app and my Bluetooth settings before it finally decides it wants pair all 3 together and work right (absolutely unacceptable). These are cool for river floats or hikes (with one speaker) but the “block party” feature is a joke.... don’t expect it to work flawlessly... it will give you a headache a frustrate the heck out of any tech savvy person. Thumbs DOWN!!!!
Doesn’t Detect or Pair Speakers
by ZMPN10 on 2020/05/06 19:50
Bought two with the intention of pairing them to play together. The app never detects the speakers to turn them on. You can manually turn them on using the power button on the speaker and play one single speaker. Since the app does not detect the speakers I am not able to “Party Up” to engage the second speaker simultaneously. Battery indicator also does not function. Even when the speaker is fully charged the app shows 0% for the one speaker. Regretting the purchase!
Why no Wonderboom 2 support?
by gjtfreak on 2020/05/02 20:30
This app works great with my previous UE boom speaker which I’ve had for years and loved. But it was time for an upgrade so I went out and bought the Wonderboom 2. I absolutely love the speaker but why is there no app support for it like the rest of the boom speakers have. It’s such a great speaker so I just can’t wrap my head around this decision by UE. I really hope they add support in a future version of the app so I can have all the same great features that my much older Boom speaker has on my much newer Wonderboom 2.
Power
by Mikeann126 on 2019/12/12 19:05
I love love love love this speaker. I use it every single day without fail. I hate when the battery is dead and you have to wait for a certain percentage for it to turn back on. Today it was 47% before it let me turn it back on. So that’s really annoying. Once it’s plugged in it should be able to turn back on.
Everything they claim if awful at best
by Xtphp123 on 2020/03/18 20:52
Range 150 feet?? Hahaha. Maybe 15 feet if you’re lucky and the solar winds are in your favor and Pegasus happens to be helping out. 20 hour battery?? Laughable. Maybe in a lab with the volume at 1 and playing a baby lullaby. Patty up??? More like party foul. My biggest aggravation of all. I have two speakers 6 feet apart and they are choppy and drop the songs. It makes me the joke of the party like the speakers have Tourettes. I can’t tell you how disappointed I am in the app and speakers, and yet I’ve bought 4 🤦🏼‍♂️. I just kept hoping they’d get better and the firmware updates would fix the issues. As a single unit tied to a single Bluetooth device they are good, but on the beach of all places they have horrible range and are easily drown out. Super discouraging and disappointing.
Speaker is unusable because of crappy app
by Gwen365 on 2020/02/15 03:14
We bought the speaker and haven’t been able to use the settings in the app so it shuts off every 15 minutes and plays an annoying intro bit every time we turn it back on. We have tried to set it up with several devices and it’s always the same thing. The company doesn’t seem to be concerned with all the complaints they are getting about this app. I wish I had gone with a different speaker.
please implement thissss
by jmanuelrondon on 2020/06/19 04:07
ok so, i bought the BOOM 3 speaker 6 months ago and it’s been great, i love it, and i use it almost every day. the app is great too, but i would like to have a timer feature, so i can fall asleep listening to music and after a certain amount of time the speaker would turn off automatically.
Suggestion For App
by Poolman777 on 2020/06/24 14:46
On the next update can you create the way to listen to music like a normal music player. Only the ability to create playlists right now Would like to pick individual artists and songs from my library Also the ability to replay a song. A shuffle feature would b nice as well
Working good for me personally
by yaaaaaboiiiiiiiiii on 2019/12/11 03:12
iPhone 8+ sitting on iOS 12.4, the app works perfect with both of my OG Megabooms. it’s unfortunate so many people have are having issues I hope they get resolved. Seems like iOS 13 could have broken something also.
I have to buy a new speaker
by Jordanfame on 2020/03/08 00:32
I love the UE Boom, that’s why it saddens me that after maybe a year of purchase it started to give me problems. When I click on a song sometimes I have to press play/pause in order to hear the song through the speaker. Also, when I’m click through songs the volume would get high and play loudly. It has become such an inconvenience I have to buy a new speaker.
Alarm Feature Stopped Working
by Azian_Doll on 2020/03/04 11:55
On this new update. The app shows the alarm is on but the music is not playing like it was before this new app update. I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled the app to no avail. The main reason I bought this speaker was the alarm feature. Fix this please!!!!!
Pairing takes a while
by qjayjr on 2020/06/11 19:19
I recently pair my UE BOOM 2 with the UE MEGABOOM and they sound great but overtime the audio will drop frequently, the streaming quality is dropping at a high hat or a Bass Punch type song , it really sounds horrible , the last update I personally did not have that problem but overall everything is good
The app makes an otherwise good speaker terrible
by AVgearfreak on 2020/06/10 19:29
I bought two Megaboom3 speakers to use as a stereo pair. The app is so bad that using the speakers as a stereo pair is a total fail. Takes many attempts to get the app to connect the second speaker as a stereo pair. Once connected as a stereo pair, constant dropouts and speaker disconnects make the stereo mode unusable. I have no connectivity problems whatsoever when connecting the Megaboom 3 speakers to either my iPad or Galaxy S10+ without the app. Sadly, no stereo without the app.
Update
by &$)(86? on 2020/09/20 15:46
All other apps just update. With that... why is the Boom all of the sudden sounding like chipmunks in a distant cave? I’ve not hear this poor quality since my brother ripped speakers out of an old 50’s stereo in his first attempt at a free “ system sound “ at 12 years of age. I will continue to try to get the app to upgrade and open to get sound controls but I may have to just say screw-it and avoid this company in my next purchase.
Horrible at best
by product19 on 2020/08/29 17:02
The app is simple but a challenge. Before I bought my second Megaboom 3 I had issues at times connecting my Megaboom 2. I just bought Megaboom 3, added it to the app, to run “party” Stereo, Double - the app at many times loses connection to one of the speakers, them that blows up your other connection to the other speaker. At best you have to shut down and manually turn off all your speakers then relaunch. The sound for “double” &amp; “stereo” would be great if it worked and didn’t have the cracking on the 2nd speaker you’re adding. It’s a connectivity issue - app is most frustrating than helpful and that’s too bad I might return the 3 because I got it to wirelessly connect my music from room-to-room.
Very Disappointed
by madre2be2020 on 2020/05/09 15:08
I always loved these mega boom speakers because of how much bass they had. I get 2 speakers wanting to pair them together and one speaker always says 0% charge on a full battery and does nothing but crackle throughout an entire song and it’s very annoying. I eventually just had to unpair it and use 1 speaker which totally defeats the purpose of buying 2 speakers to entertain my family game night. Please fix! These speakers are not cheap!!
Won’t play selected songs
by Flash2011 on 2020/02/28 13:31
I’m not sure what has happened. I’ve had my speaker for about 3 years now. At first I could play any random song on my playlist. Now, if I try to select a song that is out of sequence it won’t play. What’s the solution for this issue? This is extremely annoying while trying to teach my water aerobics class.
Updates and bugs fix on your app
by Ace4128 on 2020/02/04 01:05
I go listen to music or anything. It try’s disconnect or even if I’m not close to it. Sound equality. Is goood. But sometimes kick off. I’m still your fan of this product. Make big update on this please.
Just updated to iOS 13.2
by silosnitsuj on 2019/11/17 01:38
Just updated to ios13.2 and now I can’t connect to my speaker. I tried restarting my phone. Deleting and reinstalling the app. Nothing. What’s happening here? UPDATE: Deleting and reinstalled the app worked for me after all. Just hope I don’t have to do this every time.
Great app and speaker
by Nick-o-name on 2020/01/16 21:14
Please add the ability to set the volume of the startup and turn off sound. It’s cool to get feedback when it connects but sometimes it’s just too loud in a quiet room when you want a low volume
IOS 13
by 3mm3Ann28 on 2019/12/18 18:44
I Am really disappointed that I can not get speaker to work with iOS 13. I have followed all instruction from ultimate ears support and from Apple genius. My Boom3 is still not recognized by my iPhone or IPad. I have also uninstalled app and reinstalled, reset my devices. Nothing is working! I love the speaker,it is an awesome product, I hope I am able to resolve this issue.
Lots of room for improvement
by Ashlae W. on 2020/07/11 17:47
We have a Megaboom that couldn’t hold a charge (would die after a day of use) (it’s less than a year old!) so we bought two BOOM 3s thinking that would solve the problem. It did solve the charging problem BUT now the music we play is constantly skipping, the speakers don’t stay partied up, etc. We’re returning them and getting Sonos speakers. Not worth the headache.
unreliable
by Fozzy Bearr<3 on 2020/03/19 17:27
the partyUp feature and the EQ is the only thing i use this app for and it can barely do that.... i have three Megablasts and pairing all three AND using alexa to change the song/pick a new song/next track etc. is like a miracle. some days it works seamlessly, other days i literally give up and come back to it later. not great
Disappointed
by Melissa Cli on 2020/09/20 11:05
I bought 4 speakers for cheer performances. The speakers are difficult to get all of them connected, they don’t stay connected, i can’t get to far away before the music cuts out. If I’m just connected with one speaker via my ps Bluetooth, I can get pretty far away but not if I’m using this crappy app. I’m very disappointed.
Great speakers, incredibly hard to double up
by A 'Merican on 2019/12/24 21:30
I honestly hate giving this a bad review but these speakers are very frustrating. If you are purchasing to be able to sync more that one speaker, do not buy. You will spend more time trying to figure that out than listening to music (yes I upgraded the speaker software.) If you only want one speaker with great sound this is for you.
Worked great until
by Drake Burger on 2020/07/09 00:21
2nd day using the app I wake up and my phone will connect just fine to either bluetooth ports. The APP won’t register the connection for whatever reason. If you’re making an app for a $400+ speaker, I’d make sure the app worked. I’ve tried forgetting the device option on my phone and re-connecting, nada. Re-downloaded the app, nada. Tried someone else’s phone, nada. I was able to rename my Hyperboom. Can’t access the EQ settings now though since the app won’t connect. All my settings for all apps have bluetooth enabled. 🤷🏻‍♂️ Guess I’ll try to return it or hopefully trade it out. I’ll update the review if it gets fixed. Useless app atm.
Updates FUBAR
by Giacomino on 2020/04/19 17:29
Boom 2s in stereo mean awesome sound anywhere anytime. That is unless updates prevent pairing. Bluetooth connects to both units. UE fubar app “sees” both speakers UNTIL double up is pressed. Then only one speaker or the other but not both. Same w party up. Pleas fix or find the programmers who messed this up and flog them with wet fettuccine noodles. I’m close to taking a sledgehammer to both speakers and wearing a “DOWN WITH LOGITECH” Sandwichboard outside their headquarters!
Cut issues
by J.r127 on 2019/12/23 02:34
Love the speaker it’s never failed me at my parties but recently every now and then the music cuts in and out my phone is still playing the music but just hear parts of it. What should I do?
Always on = always out of battery
by iMathew! on 2020/09/21 16:48
Please allow users to deactivate the always on power feature! It used to be a toggle in the app. My speakers are constantly losing battery for a feature that I can live without. Reaching physically for my speaker is faster than going into the app to turn it on anyway. Is it too much to ask?! I regret ever updating the internal software.
Skips terribly!!
by Wild Will Hudson on 2019/10/19 04:01
The new app for mega boom causes a bad 1/2 second skip in the music every 3-5 minutes ensuring a very unpleasant pause in virtually every song. The little hipster software engineers at UE had one job... Make a tiny app that plays music on their hardware reliably. Ooops! Seems they have some work to do! Or maybe they think we shouldn’t mind constant hiccups.
