Purchased the Charge 4, the speaker sounds nice and connecteds to both mine and my wife's phone. But the application is useless. Why does it need zone info just to start? Gave the application access to zone but the application won't connect to the speaker. Tried all the usual things to fix problem. First time I've ever had an application not connect to the hardware. Android device phone.
Your U.I on this application is seriously lacking! The fact you can't see more than one speaker at a time is annoying. It's a bare minimum application which needs to be updated. Take a page out of UE (ultimate ears) that's how an application for speakers work.
Needs work. connects to my charge 4 from my samsung note 8 but, when i connect my wifes charge 4 via the connect button, the application almost never recognizes hers. So right left channel function is unusable till it's fixed. it would be cool if you can set right left channel and it stays that method till you change it again via the app. it sucks to have to go to the near useless application every time i turn them on to set it right left.
What a waste of time, this JBL Connect application discovered my Charge 3 only the very first time. After updating the firmware on the Charge 3 (through the app), it just stays on the "discovering..." screen and then presumes to teach me how to pair my device (which I've obviously already done, otherwise i would not be able to listen to music). Useless app. Please do something about this because your hardware is method up there amongst the best.
Application needs work. Called customer service and no doubt its an application issue. Sent screenshots and went through all the problem shooting process with them. Keeping fingers crossed that a future application modernize will let speakers and application to connect (and STAY) connected appropriately for firmware updates. Sorry everyone...I know its frustrating.
Real stereo sound once it connects....! First off have your phone ONLY connect to ONE speaker. The second speaker should not even have any pairing settings saved. Allow the application and the speaker connect buttons work together. Lights stay on white after connected. Charge 3 speakers both updated. Have your phone close to the speakers when connecting initially also....and... just found out play your melody and no need to even begin the application again after you've done it once.
I bought two speakers to listen in stereo on the go and this application seems to pick and choose when it wants to explore both of them. it will explore the one that connected to the BT first.. been trying daily after work for about a two weeks .now super frustrating!!! it's worked ... twice and when it does the flip 4 sound amazing in stereo for such a portable package.. it will play melody out of both speakers.. but only once has it decided to "discover" both speakers.. FRUSTRATING
It is useless, buggy, doesn't work. Then why is it needed. I have a jbl flip4, and I wonder why the '+' button on it works as a play/pause button when it already has a play/pause button ? If jbl you are reading my comment, please answer why '+' dosen't works as volume up, instead it works as play/pause.
horrible app. Doesn't recognize that Bluetooth is even on. Doesn't recognize that speaker is connected. if you wanted a speaker that has it's own app, look elsewhere. it only goes to present that the company doesn't care about their customers when they fail to fix anything and fail to answer to reviews all coming with the same problem. so in short, horrible customer service. my jbl charge4 speaker is okay. Doesn't sound as amazing as my $30 headphones I got from a verizon store, but that's headphones
Crashes all the time, when it does work it doesn't work well. This application has no reason to function as poorly as it does. I spent $200 on a pair of JBL speakers because I assumed the stereo function would at minimum work, but the majority of the time it either crashes the application or turns off on its own. I understand the shop for this application is very little considering JBL speakers work just fine on their own for the average consumer, but in my opinion the application should at least function.
Your application and/or your software built into the speakers is awful. Won't stay connected, random static, zero sound despite having verifiable bt connection to one/both speakers. You have a significant portion of my $200 dollars, please fix this. Wouldn't be surprised if you blamed it on my phone but it'll work perfectly for quite some time and then nothing... Currently listening to silence from two Flip 4s. 4 days later... I'm playing melody through both and application sees no speaker. Ok...
The APP leaves a lot of room for improvement, after about an hour of service it defaults to what I would describe from stereo to mono output. So all day long I continually have to restart the speaker. The speaker seems to be a amazing device, I have never place it through any environmental extremes. Customer service was no support to me, if they can't read about it on their Q&A, they are not willing place the effort out to obtain an respond for you.
doesnt do as its says it can. both my speakers are connected but the application is not able to detect them. very not good application support. wont buy another jbl coz they cant connect properly. sony's can stereo pair easily while jbl's cannot even be detected.
I've been needing to modernize my speaker for a few days and everytime it I wanna modernize it says it can't connect to my speaker. both my bluetooth and areas are on snd it still fails to move even 1% after 5-10 mins and says "connection failed". I even tried uninstalling and reinstalling the application but that failed too. I heard amazing things about this speaker and I had faith in the company and spent alot of cash on this speaker to expect nothing less than a working and compatible app.
I use it for my pulse 3. Used to work fine in beginning but now it doesn't even recognise that speakers are connected by bluetooth. even after 30mins of pairing it didn't recognise. there is no equaliser, just an application to control the lights. really bad.!
Beautiful much useless. JBL has amazing hardware but the software needs serious work. The whole point of this application is to have control over your speakers, yet it's never able to search the speakers. Come on JBL fix this nonsense, it's not like these speakers are cheap.
useless why do jbl wish to track zone to control a bt boombox speaker?. best bit is the phone is bt connected with £400 boombox and plays fine but the application is stuck in discovering mode. useless app, uninstalling application now, needless waste of my time. avoid
Finally it works...with a few firmware updates and it works flawless. Update..who would of tnought that i had to research a newly purchased xtreme speaker that wont connect to this app, with no firmware modernize available (to be able to use connect+)..Im absolutely Livid! No more JBLs for me!
The application doesn't detect speakers with connect+, only the old connect. Though the application seems to work on some other devices. My phone is a Oneplus 5t and the specific speakers are the Xtreme2 and Charge3. It stopped working on my Charge3 when i updated it.
very limited functionality. I have 2 pulse 3s and their lights sequences can't be synced through the app. It is annoying to watch them bounce around in various modes when I have them in stereo mode next to each other. hope a light sync can be added to the app. why have only control of one of the devices? I would like options to simulate surround sound. and why can't I connect my flip3 to my pulses?
got a JBL Xtreme 2, and have connected it to my oppo F1s bluetooth. Melody through this thing is awesome!!!! But when I begin the Connect app, it stays on the "turn bluetooth on" screen? The bluetooth is on, and the speaker connected. So then I tried turning the speaker off, closing the app, turn bluetooth off and then reset the process. But the application stays on the "turn bluetooth on" screen... Any help?
is it real? how for god sake did you release such a bugy app? where is QA team? primary quality... cant make batter my charge 4 firmware, it deleted all my paired Bluetooth devices , and more crip things.. please fix all the problems , it harms your reputation as one of best speakers manufacturers shame you!
What's wrong with this thing? Keeps "Discovering" forever even though speaker is on and connected via Bluetooth to this very device. Seriously JBL your items is expensive, obtain your application act together. So doesn't work with GO2 speakers? Why not? I just wish to disable the stupid and annoyingly loud alert sounds.
soeakers are great, but using my moto z play phone 2 issues help can't seem to correct. 1. The jbl connect won't connect and 2 after being shut down for 10hr I have to reboot my phone to obtain 2 flip 4s to pair smoothly. l even got a fresh phone in hopes of fixing the problems. frustrating!!! Lee
Unneeded GPS Zone Access, A lot of Bugs, No Functionality and Limited Features. This application will not begin if you will not grant it access of your Location. What the hell? Is my zone an necessary requirement to detect? like my phone and my JBL Xtreme2 v. 1.2 has already been connected and why the hell it wants to access my location? Also, JBL must have an option to have an auto-off of the lights of the speaker because it is very bright at night. Also, the Baterry bar should be always on.
This application sucks. I was able to download an modernize for my Flip3 speaker. Then the screen flickered insanely quick saying "Discovering" for a few mins until the screen went 100% dark. I couldn't even use my home buttons (LGV40) Now the application doesn't even open. For a global company it sure doesn't seem like one.. This application is STILL useless and two speakers do NOT connect with to eachother with or without the app.
There's not that much of a functionality in the application (connecting to Charge 4), and it works rather flacky: - when Charge 4 is connected to a smartphone, the application needs several seconds to connect. It may write something like "Make sure the device is turned on and is near"; - after connecting, it may need several seconds more to present the battery level and the option "Audio feedback sounds" in the settings; - I didn't manage to turn off "Audio feedback sounds" - the application just restarts.
Suggestions... I have a flip 3. Think of adding volume and equalizer control, power on and off via bluetooth. Answer as promptly as possible to those who have problems with the app. An improvement in customer service can only support your bottom line...sales. Create everything else be as amazing as your product you sale.
JBL Pulse 3, so I tried to begin the application so my son can change the colors of the speakers but the application doesn't start. maybe it's because I dont let the application uh sing my location? I'm sitting on my couch if that helps? why do you need a zone for using an app? You should deactivate functions in the application which need zone services but not changing colors. gonna post this also towards Bestbuy rating. So disapointed..... unit goes back tomorrow.
Do you like having to resync all your blue tooth devices? Well then I have some amazing news for you, you can easily remove all your Bluetooth saved devices by trying to use this app. Not only did this application not modernize my speaker, but it also deleted all my other saved bt devices. So I had to resync them all after I tried and failed multiple times to modernize my speaker. All for what? "fixed minor bugs" what a waste of time, don't bother with this app.
I'm returning the second speaker. I have two JBL Extreme 2. This application stresses me out so much because of how dysfunctional it is. This application has damn alzheimers every two minutes. Why the hell do I have to have GPS turned on just to use my speakers in stereo? Who designed this and is there even anyone working on it right now to improve it because there is zero communication from JBL or Harman to their community.
Stupid app, it is not discovering my jbl pulse 3. the speaker is connected and i can hear the melody as well but it is not discovering it. i also browsed the internet seems like its a issue mny people are facing and tried some things but no luck. I hope JBL squad is more responsive to tye problems customers are facing.
All in all and awesome game. Extremely easy mechanics and goals but somehow very compelling. On more than a few occasions i had to stop and really think before taking action. It was thise moments i enjoyed the most. Though im not sure if the statement "get past level 200 and your a genius" is real lol.
Puzzle 125, found only 1 or 2 of them remotely challenging... Will hold searching. The android game has a slick look and amazing interface. Edit: Used to be fun, now it's just an endless add simulator for google play's garbage! Playing this you avarage out at at least 1 add every 10sec. Thats worse than any commercial TV channel! Uninstall, havent had a challange up to puzzle 500. And take the word 'puzzle' lightly.
amazing idea and amazing mechanics, but every three or four levels (which take about 30 secs each) is an ad. On top of that, every time an ad pops up and I close it, the thing freezes and shuts down. I really like these types of android games but this is too much. I hope it will be fixed but I do not recommend it.
Played through 100 levels; vast majority were trivial and ads are based off time played, so you are lucky if you are able to play three levels before yet another ad, assuming you didnt just pay the shekels to turn adds off. Not worth the time while the android game squeezes every latest advertising penny it can obtain out of you.
just started playing again and now that you have those ads which I can easily click when I don't mean to is annoying the fact that you have ads after you finish levels is enough in my opinion especially for when you take a while on a level your guaranteed an ad. android game isn't worth accidentally opening ads when your trying to beat a level.
I couldn't obtain anywhere on this application because of the ads every time I would click on anything a bunch of ads would pop up and wouldnt even do a speed test. it's not worth it,it just stressed me out. very annoying
