Needs fixed 1/5
Constant issues with app working even when already connected by Bluetooth. Will no longer remote power on either
Remote Power On Stopped Working 1/5
The remote power function of the app has stopped working. This is essentially the only function of the app and now it doesn’t work.
App is worst part 1/5
This speaker is by far one of the best, but the app is a big disappointment. The alarm function was something I really looked forward to and it doesn’t work. Would give better review if the app worked as advertised.
Terrible app- shame on Logitech 1/5
Whoever designed this app should be fired. Please spend less time being minimalist- as if things are so intuitive and work so well you don’t need instructions- and either make an app and a product that actually does work consistently and doesnt take the app designers to use properly. I want to throw these speakers away. My experience has been so frustrating it has made this gift unpleasant to even think of using- to say nothing of the time I have to waste every time I try to set them up. Get anything else.
I love my ue but... 1/5
By Charlie Groene
For some reason the new update has made my alarm on my ue megaboom not work half the time and its really annoying because that was one of the main reasons I bought it, its the only alarm loud enough to actually wake me. And i wish you could set the alarm to go off at different times every day. I wake up at different times every day and its a burden to have to remember to switch it.
Used to love it 1/5
When I got my mega boom I loved it . Would’ve been great if it didn’t blow out a speaker within two years .
TERRIBLE APP 1/5
By F*ck match
The MegaBoom used to work perfectly with the app and I could set my alarm and trust it to wake me up. Now with all these stupid updates the alarm function doesn’t even work and it’s done nothing but make the app worse. I had no clue a developer could go from a nearly perfect app a year + ago to now every update makes it 10X worse. Definitely will never buy another MegaBoom again! The speaker itself sounds great and has plenty of volume but the selling point on it for me at the time (January 2016) instead of buying a Bose was the alarm feature and it’s useless now. If you want a good speaker to manually turn on this will work if you buy it for the features they claim it has. Save yourself the disappointment and look elsewhere.
On/Off Button Option!? 1/5
You guys took a turn for the worse. It was nice not having to get up to turn on the speaker. Taking away the feature to turn the Megaboom off and on wasn’t a great idea.
Gotten progressively worse 1/5
Have had a Megaboom for about 3 years now. And the app has only gotten worse. Very inconsistent when trying to party up or pair two devices. Makes having multiple speakers almost pointless.
great but now i camt remote power 3/5
for over year i was able to at least remote power speaker from app no problem,but now im upset w this app
Poor App there is NO DOUBLE UP 1/5
I have tried everything including UE instructions on how to Double Up making two speakers play at once for a great sound. Tried in app but it does not recognize more than one speaker. Then instructions to connect two speakers without the app does not work either. App is totally latest version. This bad app means that I bought two speakers on. Fraudulent false advertising basis by UE. There are other speakers out there that sound just as good. Don’t fall for the connecting two come on.
Terrible App Update!!! 1/5
Every time an update is released for the app and speaker firmware, I loose features.
#1 The iPhone X is out....WHY DID YOU RELEASE AN UPDATE WITHOUT UTILIZING THE ENTIRE SCREEN?!?
#2 I lost Remote Power several updates ago. 😡 What is Bluetooth Smart?!? I had to search forums and other reviews to figure out how to fix my remote power.
#3 After the latest update, PartyUp doesn’t work. The screen to add speakers has a gray bar at the bottom and if I try to scroll up I can see half of all my other UEBOOMS but I get an error.
#4 What happened to the option in PartyUp that allowed the sound to be switched between true stereo and normal sound when you have only two UEBOOMS connected?
#5 The new app logo looks terrible!! Very unpleasant. The old app icon was much nicer.
#6 Why do I need a different app for every speaker?? Surely there is a designer out there that can come up with one app that allows you to control all the UEBOOMS together.
#7 I had to turn off the Alert Sounds because now they all play at maximum volume. It’s very startling when the speaker makes an alert sound at the highest volume even though the speaker is turned all the way down.
Im very confused as to how these speakers are getting worse the longer I own them. You would expect the updates to improve or add functionally not take it away.
FIX ASAP PLEASE!!!
Change the logo back please 4/5
By Kullen Yurchak
App is smooth and works for me, but the new logo looks less sleek. Would recommend changing it back.
Power remotely not working no more 4/5
I can no longer remotely turn my speakers on, and yes i did update my firmware and my phone and double checked the setting if it was turned off but no, nothing, can’t figure it out, sad life, the speaker is awesome. Wish the d ring was more durable, mines broke off have to replace, twice.
Hey I love you guys but please fix this !! 4/5
Maybe make the feature work? I have the mega boom and the UE roll and I was able to pair them together with the mega boom app until the update and now it just isn’t showing up in the “drawer”.
I know there is a new way to pair the roll and the mega boom with the new update as described in the instructions on the app but maybe look into it because I keep trying to make it happen and it just doesn’t and all I want to do is party on you know, man?
Anyway that’s all I got. Your speakers and software make for a really good time but maybe just don’t update the firmware interface until every bell and whistle is for sure going to work.
10/10 would recommend though, like I said please keep updating and just doing what you’re doing.

My speak doesn’t even power on through the app
CHANGE BACK LOGO-make faster 2/5
By M-Dawg Marion
Good app, but the new logo looks a lot less classy on my phone screen. It looks like a fake free app you would get from China. Really bad it’s kind bothering me.
Also the menu that comes up on the side to pull up the equalizer and settings needs to be a little faster of an animation because it takes a while and I can’t use the app as fast as I’d like to
Finicky App 1/5
By Arky in Boca Raton
Speakers are GREAT! App takes a bit to operate without some hiccups...mostly pairing and staying that way.
UE mega boom app 1/5
Got mega boom speakers, love the speakers!
HATE the app!!! 😤😡Unbelievable you have to have this awful app to play your speakers!!
Go to turn them off, and one comes back on! Had a lot of trouble doubling them up!!!
What a joke!!!
Remote Power 2/5
By the deltoid
Since updating my iPhone 7 Plus to the latest iOS the remote power-up function does now work with my UE MEGABOOM.
I can’t turn my UE MEGABOOM On from the app! 2/5
I had a UE MEGABOOM speaker for over a year which i used to turn on and off from my iPhone and iPad using the app without any problems. I gave that speaker to a friend and got a new UE MEGABOOM speaker(the exact same model as the one i had for over a year). With the new speaker I’m unable to turn it On from the app, I’m only able to turn it Off from the app. I have called Logitech and they have tried all kinds of trouble shooting, but haven’t been able to fix the problem, one of the reps told me that it’s a problem with the app. Another rep told me that the app doesn’t support the feature of turning the speaker On, which i told her wasn’t true because i had the exact same speaker before and i was able to turn it On from the app.
Excellent as usual 5/5
Guys you don't complain about the app
The app is good and everything is working perfectly, you're just too lazy, go and check the setting in the app you will find everything you need there, to power up the speaker from the app, etc
Poor commitment. 1/5
By John Paul the second
UE Megaboom is a fantastic speaker. The Hardwear is on point and for the value, the speaker sounds great and even performs to waterproof standards. This review is for the piss poor app that has no vision or commitment to to past versions.
The ability to power on the speaker via Bluetooth came as an operating function. That really helped sell this $300 speaker for me. Now it’s just gone and no amount of talking to Logitech customer service will ever bring it back.
Pull your sh!t together.
Can’t power on any longer remotely 2/5
Before the updates I was able to power on my speaker. I updated my phone, this app, and the firmware on the speaker and it no longer powers on remotely I’m furious I hate getting up to turn on the speaker !!!
Essentially Useless 1/5
Does nothing I want it to do, particularly using the two speakers I have at the same time. Main reason I bought the second one. It won’t even recognize the one connected to my phone, even though it’s paired and playing music, the app thinks there is no speaker paired. Waste of money and time. Going to return the useless expensive second speaker I purchased.
Awesome, but 4/5
This app is pretty neat. It gives you awesome control over your speaker, and pretty neat functions and features.
The only annoying thing that I don’t understand is why I can’t use the DJ feature (basically just a queue), on multiple speakers and just one? This should be a change, because I bought mine just for that function.
A year ago this app was incredible. Now I have no use it. First they took away the ability to have 2 devices connected at the same time. This was especially annoying when my laptop would turn on and automatically connect to my speaker, kicking out any device which was initially connect (typically being my phone). Now, I can't even use the app to power my speaker remotely. The power button on the app has disappeared. The only thing I can use the app for is to control volume, which I can already do from the device playing music. As of now, this app is basically useless. (EDIT: Apparently this is because the iPhone 6S doesn't have Bluetooth smart. Yet for some reason the iPhone 6, an older phone, does.)
Half a star 1/5
With new update just made the app worse and and the app was already bad. I can’t turn on the speaker from phone anymore I have to physically stand up and press it. And when I turn my speaker on now it turns up all the way on the volume. These features are really unnecessary. I bought the large speaker and this isn’t what I spent my on/for.
I wish it would consistently work 2/5
I could only sometimes turn on and off my speaker, and only has lasted a day when it does work. It’s pretty annoying and that’s one of the best features about this app, I’m not sure what to do. It’ll sometime tell me my phone is not compatible but will also sometimes work, I have a 6s and I think it is compatible.
P.O.S. App 1/5
Wish I could give a zero star rating. Both alarm and equalizer don't work. Cant power the speaker remotely.
I don’t know how they managed to mess up the only feature they had going for them but for whatever reason I can’t remote power on my speaker anymore. Ever since I updated the app, the power button on the app is gone and in the settings it says that my device doesn’t support it. BRUH, it was just working last week! I also have the brand new iPhone 8. So don’t tell me that. Now I regret buying this speaker. Seriously.
iOS 11 2/5
The power up is not working with iOS 11
Doesn’t do the only thing I use it for 1/5
By Mitchell Roman
I only use the app to power on my speaker, and now that feature doesn’t even work. Quite unhappy with this app.
So far so good 5/5
I haven’t had a long time using this but so far I’ve had no issues. Connected both and made sure the speakers had the latest updates. Stereo coming through great with no issues. If things go wonkey I’ll come back and update my review but so far it’s been great.
TWO DEVICES, CONNECTION SPEED 2/5
Product is very good by itself(speaker) but app have to be more polished. A lot of sharp edges like
YOU CANNOT CONNECT TWO DEVICES AT THE SAME TIME,LIKE IT WAS BEFORE
IT TAKES MUCH MORE TIME (10-20sec) FOR PHONE TO CONNECT TO SPEAKER when you turning it on wirelessly via app then it was before (a couple of updates before)
I love this speaker with all my heart but these problems must be fixed to say it's ready to use with ease and the way they describe
Logitech, are you kidding me, Why it’s so hard to get a good crew of coders and make truly fascinating application. You have almost a top notch speaker, why don’t you create an application which will work for people?? You making updates to it but it getting only worse. Seems like you hired the crew of schoolers to work on the project. C’mon, we believe in you and waiting for all that bug fixes that been mentioned earlier. I HOPE you are listening to people.
Poor Hardware, Worse App 1/5
Update: these things are so buggy. I cannot pair any longer. I’m no longer using. I regret this purchase and never had a good experience with them.
Tap to turn on 3/5
Please update the app ASAP so that these functions can still work.
Lousy app. Logitech should be embarrassed.
Speaker is the worse at connecting, dropping connections, etc. Zero customer support!
What happened? 1/5
These speakers used to sound great. Latest update killed the sound on these especially with songs with base. No equalizer setting has been found to bring back sound quality. I might as well have purchased Walmart speakers. They also dont stay connected and crackle. Fix this please!
Great Speaker, Tough App 2/5
By Sam is tired of this
The speaker is great and the ideas they have for the app are awesome, but they just don't really work. The alarm is cool but won't play any music anymore (no matter what I select) which makes waking up a lot tougher. The app is buggy as a whole and missing a couple major necessities (more native alarm allowing you to choose what days it's on/ set multiple alarms, revamping tap controls, etc). I would recommend these speakers to anyone, but for now, I wouldn't share the app

Turns on and off from app 5/5
Pretty good, that's all I really wanted.
Stop with the updates! 1/5
This last update has greatly reduced the functionality of the speaker. It can only stay connected to one device at a time, so I can use the remote on and off controls or switch back and forth from my laptop to my phone to play music.
edit-the app has become so buggy lately, with things crashing constantly. This time the app crashes every time I try access alarm settings. I used to recommend the MEGABOOM to everyone but now I think it might be wiser to warn people since the app makes using the speaker frustrating!
Crashes and locks up 1/5
I wondered how the app was getting such low ratings and now I understand why. It basically does nothing other than allow you to adjust some of the settings, set an alarm and turn on and off the unit. Unfortunately that's where it ends as all it does is crash in lock up in between. After you set it up initially you might as well just delete the app
No alarm 1/5
Alarm doesn't work. Please fix!
What a waste of an app 1/5
98% useless. Only works 2% of the time.
Another cheap piece of gear that never works. Taking them back today after asking all the questions, trying to get support and still won't connect. These aren't cheap so why the app does not work with them is totally stupid. Fire your developers and start again!
UE Megaboom phone app 1/5
I purchased a second Megaboom so that I could utilize the double-up feature. I can see no way to download the new 2.3 version even though my app store screen says it's been downloaded. it did not transfer to my phone. The previous version did not have the double up listed as a feature. So, I'm very frustrated. I will now simply double-up manually. It would sure be nice if Logitech went back to customer phone support because website instructions are useless. Even the u-tube instructions are not helpful.
No longer pairs multiple speakers 1/5
This updated app is worthless. I used to pair multiple speakers with friends at the beach/pool. Now it won't work. Wake up Logitech!
