Automatically Turns On 3/5
First off the app is okay in its current state. The reason for the 3 stars is that I keep coming out to my car with the under glow lights on. I don’t know if that’s someone screw with me or if the product turns on itself.
Please enable pasting of passwords 2/5
Those that use password managers with unique passwords will quickly be irritated by the inability to copy/paste into the password field.
Music Sync color feature 3/5
I love this app, except for one thing. You guys removed the option to have my light strip sync to music with only one color. This is what I always had mine set to. I really miss that. I hope you guys can bring this feature back. Other than that, this app is great!
By I call it a flipafail
I honestly really love the light bulb my friend bought me for my birthday. The only problem I have is that my roommate and I both cannot have access to it. When we hooked her bluetooth up it kicked me out and now I can’t reconnect. It works very well if you live alone but bringing it to college is a hassle. I’d definitely recommend though because of the amount of options, groupings, and all the ways you can customize your colors.
2 Bulbs, Same Settings, Different Colors 2/5
Started off terrific. Loved them. After a month, the same setting is producing two different colors. I checked the bulbs in different lamps — it is the bulb. Clicked the purple color provided on the standard color squares; one produces a true purple, the other produce a magenta. Bummer.
Siri doesn’t work 1/5
When ever I try to hook up my shortcut for Siri it never works. Tells me nothing is connected in my home app. Doesn’t make sense.
By Jessie bounce
I have heard great things about theses led lights so I bought them. They are amazing. The best led lights I have ever had. They are super easy to use and install. 100% worth your money.
Connectivity issue 2/5
By Dirty dirk
The device was working fine for a period of time . But now it just refuses to connect to wifi . Really annoying to not have the smart home feature working properly like I had it before .
Best smart lighting app 5/5
Best lights and best app
Great app 5/5
The app is great, use it for my govee devices.
Needs a fix 1/5
Doesn’t want to work without a Bluetooth connection and it can’t connect to my wifi, I’ve tried everything & can’t even link to Alexa anymore.
App becoming way too complicated 3/5
By flavor to your life
The app used to be so simple and easy to use. Then they started adding groups, group visibility settings, relative brightness, all this other complicated stuff that i think they thought people would know how to use. But i have no idea what half this stuff does.
App keeps disconnecting from Alexa 3/5
The app is good, but too restrictive. Also it keeps disconnecting from Alexa.
Works smoothly 4/5
First off the lights are amazing and the app is pretty good.
Biggest complaint is no landscape function for the app on iPad. For more organization I consolidated the stream deck and Govee app to iPad fir the stream. NEEDS LANDSCAPE FOR GOVEE.
Incredibly invasive data gathering 1/5
Stop downloading these Chinese apps that siphon every bit of info from you, every shred of info regarding your identity, financial info, preferences, etc and sends it directly to the CCP. This should be permanently banned from US markets
By Birthday Cake..!!
RGBIC is the bomb!! Try it!
Intuitive & packed with features! 4/5
The Govee app and their products offer customers a quality experience at an affordable price. I love how the app allows users to share their presets with other users and allows endless customization. The only thing I feel is missing is the ability to have the lights use every quadrant when in movie mode. They’re halfway there with the latest update; it now allows each bar to display colors from its corresponding side of the screen. However, the lights aren’t being used to their full potential and I hope to see this changed in the near future. The technology is there, we just need a firmware update allowing it.
Great investment 5/5
The customer service were very supportive and quickly responded to my troubles, also helped me through the process.
My Favorite App 5/5
I think Govee is awesome! I think the app is decent and interactive. I’m new but is there a way to link with people live? That would be really cool. Keep up the creative genius in all of your minds because it continues to flame all of ours…..
Programming problems 1/5
I love the lights, but for some reason there is a programming issue with the lights. When I set the color to purple some lights are lighting up red in groups of six in a striped pattern. It’s really unfortunate that the app is the problem because my lights have been perfectly normal and untouched and randomly did this, please make an update to where this issue is solved. Thank you!!
I love this product. 4/5
LEDs and the technology are the coolest upgrade to LED lighting to ever happen I love these things I have eight sets of them up in my arcade that said I would really appreciate it if the smart device same type sets Would allow me to create groups of more than six even if I could create groups of eight that would just be absolutely amazing.
App needs a player for function for smart devices sets.
Please code a way to make playlists so your users can pick a value of 1-999 scenes that they prefer over others. Add another tab to your main app GUI labeled playlists when selected the app should then display a simple media player style GUI to allow the user to change the order of the scenes they select or add to favorites to be read easily and arranged within a playlist style list layout as opposed to bulky icons on a grid. GUI would have a play/pause button, skip scene button, a toggle button that controls “shuffle = 0 shuffle = 1” off0/on1 This function should selecta new scene At random every “uservalue 1.0 - 86440.0 seconds aka 24 hrs”
You guys already have the best LED product on the market please make the app as awesome as the technology. The hardware is only as good as the code!!!
You guys can do it!
Not formatted for iPad 1/5
Using iPad in landscape mode with attached keyboard. Not useable. Even if I was willing to remove keyboard and use it in portrait mode, it looks terrible. I like the thermometer, but the software is unacceptable.
Waste of money!! 1/5
We bought a freezer thermometer because our garage freezer periodically loses power thanks to upstream GFCI’s that occasionally need to be rest. If you have the app OPEN AND VIEWING IT you get an alert, but today I went out to the freezer off, temp 30 degrees higher than what the alarm I set was for, NEVER GOT AN ALERT! I opened the app, it showed the red warning at the top of the screen. Got an alert 5 mins later on my phone. Stupid waste of an app.
Doesn’t do whats its advertised it would do.
So far so good only problem for me is why didn’t I get the WiFi model
iWatch app please 3/5
I’d love to have an app for my iWatch. So I could easily turn my lights on and off when I’m in bed. We generally don’t take our phones to bed with us.
Solid (H5051) 5/5
By D. Brasco
I’ve had their WiFi temp/humidity monitor for a couple years now and it and the app have functioned flawlessly. That’s definitely not common. I’m always grateful for sound and solid tools.
Doesn’t work 1/5
It outright is broken. I purchased the govee pair light bars that stand upright and the app was able to find the lights through bluetooth. However, afterwards, it’d endlessly load. After it timed out, it says the connection was lost. While it’s loading I can’t press anything on the app … so I can’t even use it.
rolling feature 1/5
By Oddly photocopying
We need the rolling feature back the phones again I don’t wanna by another device just to get that feature
Can’t turn off multiple lights with one tap?!?!? 3/5
I have to turn off all 3 of my lights individually, it’s so unnecessary. Make a preset feature!
Fantastic, need more DIY scenes 4/5
I want more scenes for DIY, like meteor.
I specifically want Meteor and the ability to set multi colors
App is good tho many features it shows being available are tough to find and utilize
Weak… Very Weak 2/5
It works very well, but only with about a ten-foot radius, so it’s mostly worthless. I do not recommend this app.
Insane app 5/5
Best RGBIC out there! 5/5
Nothing competes with this lightning company!
Good, just not Great 3/5
I like the security of knowing I’ll get an alert if my freezer isn’t staying cold enough. I just wish I could either select alerts for only the times it goes above a selected temp or lower the low temp alerts below -4.
my review 4/5
so i had this app when i got my leds and it deleted randomly lol
Love government but… 2/5
By ch r15
Not a fan of newer diy implementation in app… mAkes on the fly changes such as change the color of a customized preset, way to many steps… but the main reason for this review is govees approach to tablets. My phone is a note 10+ Almost a tablet, yet govee wouldn’t let me instal their labs app…. Now I have a new iPad and the govee app is a laughable mess. I hate to be mean govee, but you know as well as I do that it’s an embarrassment to what you’re trying to do. Fix your iPad app. Put your labs app on phones.
App Stopped Working 1/5
With the most recent update to this app, I can no longer connect to my Bluetooth lightbulb. It keeps telling me to make sure the product is within range. I deleted the app and downloaded it again and now it can’t even find the bulb. If I wanted a bulb that couldn’t be controlled from my phone I wouldn’t have spent $13 on a single lightbulb...
You have to give them your email and make an account to use certain features 3/5
Works very well with my Bluetooth rgb led stip. I have had no issues connecting or controlling it. Edit: my first review was four stars because this app works pretty well for controlling my led strip, but with an update they released features that you have to make an account in order to use.
Used to be better 1/5
By Hippie Matt
They got rid of a lot of the features that were cool like being able to use other people’s lighting settings that they upload
Works great 5/5
Great app especially considering other led strips don’t even offer this really
Overly complicated 3/5
All I have is the BT thermometer. I just want to preset temperatures and be alerted when the food reaches doneness. The app is over-complicated because it’s meant to handle all kinds of devices from Govee. The widget is useless for temperature monitoring, Weber’s iGrill app does much better for its BT thermometer.
So when added a new update to the app where you can tell Siri to turn your lights on. So when I did it and I tell Siri to turn on light it doesn’t work. So I did it again and it still doesn’t work.
Won’t send email confirmation 1/5
I tried various times to create an account however, it never sends me an email confirmation. Because of this, I am unable to use the app to control my led strip lights. Fix this.
So Far So Bad 2/5
I just got some Govee products and downloaded the app. I’m in the process of setting it up for voice control with my Google Nest. However, the instructions are wrong. It has pictures that don’t match my Google Home app. Not to mention you can’t even follow where they tell you to go, because the first button they want you to press, doesn’t exist. Not even 5 minutes with this app and it’s useless.
App breaks lights 1/5
My lights worked fine while I was using the included remote. A week later, I decided to connect lights to app so I could control from my phone.
The lights flash 4 colors & then turn off. My phone won’t stay connected to the lights even when it’s on top of the light receiver. I had this problem with my tv led strip which is why I didn’t connect originally.
Now the lights won’t work, app doesn’t work & I wasted a good amount of money & outside the return window.
Thanks a lot Govee for taking my money & then screwing me.
Great app needs one feature very much needed Feature 4/5
I like The fact that you can use other peoples lights from the videos but there is one very much needed feature blocking what if there is somebody constantly commenting on your account there needs to be a way to block them without having to sign in and do everything there should be a button right next to the profile picture saying block this user please make this a feature in the next update thank you
