Firmware update still not working for Xtreme 2 1/5
I called JBL on May 17 2019. They told me it’s going to be another 2-3 weeks til an update will be working . If they don’t fix this soon I will be returning this and getting an Xtreme 1 second hand
I give it a one star because no equalizer on the app or anywhere 1/5
I love the speaker no problems just on some songs you need a equalizer and when your using 2 charge4 as my primary speakers for me car it would be nice
Great app 5/5
Love this app the connection is very stable and it’s easy to set up if you are having any issues though you don’t need to use the app just press the connect plus button on your jbl speaker and they will connect
Needs more features 1/5
I have the Charge 2 and it’s sounds great but this app is useless. You can’t even control the volume with with peace of crap. No sound settings no nothing, all it has is sync feature if you happen to have a second JBL speaker. 👎🏼👎🏼
Terrible app 2/5
The controls for this app are super limited and the buttons are placed horrible for the iPhone XS Max, I have to hit the X to leave settings multiple times because it’s literally hanging over my battery icon, terrible design.
Update your software/firmware please! 1/5
Have two charge 3s that will not connect little to no support from Harmon! Come on guys support your products!
The app does not work on iPhone 1/5
The app is horrible it doesn’t work on iPhone

Where is support for JBL Partybox?
Bought a JBL extreme 2.. came with the original firmware which has since been updated many many times with tons of improvements. The app is broken and I can’t update mine and they tell me they have no date that it could be fixed and that I’m just out of luck with my out of date $250 speaker that I just bought... unreal!
JBL charge 3 1/5
By Jola 119
Spent a super long time trying to connect my speaker but it never discovered it even though it was connected and playing music. Tried connecting and disconnecting and still didn’t work
It won’t connect. Please help me
Will not connect to speakers 1/5
The first day or two, I could connect both charge 3’s and play them in stereo if wanted. I could rename them to play different music for different people on different devices but now, they won’t work together and the app can no longer find the speaker already playing music connected to iPad. This app is terrible? Fix it JBL!
The synchronization 5/5
I see people are having problems, its cos the party button. It turns on and off but it doesn't tell you on screen that its on or off. The speakers are all connected though.
Can’t update my JBL xtreme 2 1/5
I just bought the speaker and I’ve heard there was a firmware update and this goddamn stupid app doesn’t let me update
JBL Connect + 2/5
This is a good app, but when I try to play music through 3 speakers (2 Flip 4’s and a boombox) the music cuts in and out constantly. Don’t know if it’s the speaker’s fault or the app’s but It is very annoying and I’m not happy with the performance considering how much I spent. Please fix this!
Speakers are great, app is garbage. 1/5
Do not buy these if someone else near you has these too. The app cannot distinguish between 2 different phones and will automatically find the closest speaker and just join in without you wanting it to. Horrible in an office setting, neighbors constantly connecting and I connecting to your speakers in party mode, which you can't not turn off or edit, without doing a complete shutdown and re-sync every time you want to play music.
Where is the update 2.0.0 for jbl
Xtreme 2? The performance is lacking!!
Worthless, it never finds the speakers 1/5
Despite using my JBL speakers all the time via Bluetooth with Spotify and other apps, this app (the official one from JBL!) somehow never finds/connects them. How bizarre!
I can’t see any software update 1/5
This is my first review in my entire life.
I bought the xtreme 2 and my firmware version is 1.2.0 and when I open the app , there’s no update.
Can’t find my speaker connected to the phone 1/5
Speaker is powered on, connected to my phone via Bluetooth and playing music yet the app can’t find it no matter how many times I try. Useless.
Unable to update multiple speakers 1/5
By Billiam BB
Once you have one JBL speaker connected to this app, any other JBL speakers you have will not be able to have the firmware updated. I purchased a couple Charge 4’s and only the first one allows the firmware update. Talking with JBL support, the next option is to use a different phone for each speaker to update it. This really needs fixed.
Can’t Connect 1/5
By The JWI
I have done everything imaginable to get JBL Connect to find my device, and it won’t. You get what you pay for with this one.
Does not work 1/5
After several attempts this app cannot even “discover“ my JBL speaker, even though it is already paired and playing music. Garbage app would give zero stars if I could!
Flip 4 and iPhone are phenomenal! 5/5
I use this in between two rooms at work. I put one speaker in each room and set to party mode. Works great! When I’m using it at a party or another get together and I want stereo I set it up for a stereo pair. I have red and black Flip 4 speakers so I can tell which is which. Stereo sound is excellent, and at full volume they are TOO LOUD for even a large room or even outdoors, but they still sound great! (This sis supposed to be a software review, but these Flip 4 speakers are amazing. That’s why they are a little more expensive).
I can’t comment about negative reviews here. I’m just very happy with this software on an iPhone and iPad driving Flip 4 speakers.
The speakers are great but 2/5
The speakers are great but they do not stay in stereo mode unless the app is open. After a while they switch back to party mode.
Renaming speaker 1/5
By the butt blaster
Why isn’t it compatible with the charge 2+ I just want to rename my speaker lol
Please Fix 1/5
My Charge 3 will no longer connect to the app. Please help with this problem.
This literally doesn’t work 1/5
I can’t get past the first screen prompting me to connect my speaker to bluetooth, even though it’s connected already
Won’t load 1/5
I tried to connect many times but I keep getting the bt screen! I have forgotten the device and reinstalled many times. The app won’t work. JBL y’all need to fix this app
No support 1/5
Why there is no support for the xtreme?
This app does revenue work... I have an up to date phone and a JBL charge 3. The app sh9uld work with those 2. I got on the app... t told me how to pair so I did each instruction. After I did that it connect but my screen was still stuck on connecting I waited and waited but it was still there... it never went away so I closed the app and tried to get back in when I tried to get back in the app was gone... it deleted off my phone and I didn’t even delete it. This gets 0 stars because it didn’t even function right.
It’s ok 3/5
When it works it’s great but it doesn’t always find the speaker I’m connected to and it’s frustrating
The app doesn’t detect my Flip 3 speaker 1/5
By E Whipple
Even though I’m listening to music through it via Bluetooth.
Plz fix does not work on iPhone XR 2/5
I want to turn off the speaker from the app 2/5
I want to turn off my JBL pulse from the app
Latency is an understatement. 1/5
I’m highly disappointed. I bought JBL pulse 3 for the sole reason to pair multiple speakers to have wireless audio throughout the house, and I bought it for the stereo right and left speaker feature you can do when you pair 2 speakers together. The idea sounds amazing, unfortunately it doesn’t work how they market it and for that reason it gets one star. I will gladly update this review if they can fix this problem.
My house is 860 square feet- when speakers are paired it’ll cut in and out even when they are right next to each other and the phones between them. Sometime the song will just randomly speed up tempo while playing connected to speaker (incredibly annoying), the stereo function 9 times out of 10 doesn’t even work or while it’s in that stereo mode will randomly just go to party mode.
I’m honestly highly frustrated right now. I just got these and have been testing them for 3 days and those speaker paring functions do not work properly how they advertise. Especially for the price $200 for one speaker this is an absolute disappointment.
Entirely useless 1/5
The app is unable to connect with my Flip3 despite having no problems connecting through other apps. Unfortunate.
Terrible and lacking important features!!! 1/5
By B. B. Reddy
This app is just terribly designed. Doesn’t recognize my JBL Charge 4 even though it is playing from my phone. Have to uninstall and install again. I tried using connect+ and doesn’t work. It barely plays volume on the second device and continuously shifts the volume on two different speakers.
It would be nice to show the battery percentage left on speaker.
By nickname 24535353
The app won't even recognize that my speaker is connected. I can't even begin to see what the app has to offer. So bad.
No practical functionality 1/5
No firmware updates and no customization. Why even waste your time downloading this app. I won’t by JBL in the future because they don’t continue to support and update their product software.
Jbl xtreme plus charge 3. Not connecting! 1/5
I wouldn’t recommend the app. Doesn’t connect the devices no matter what I try.
JBL Connect 1/5
This has to be the most worthless app I’ve ever installed. There is absolutely no reason to install this app unless you own multiple speakers and wish to place them in stereo or party mode. I think I lost a couple of iq points just exploring the app.
Doesn’t work on IOS 11 1/5
This is frustrating to have great speakers that cant do the job of connect like theyre supposed to. Not to mention the expense of tech that doesn’t work
Battery rogress bar should be BIGGER 3/5
By Dzmitry Burns
I like the app, could you please made charging progress bar bigger? As for me, it’s hard to see battery percentage :(
loses stereo connection ALWAYS!!! 1/5
If I don’t keep app “on top” (use another app on my phone) it will lose the stereo connection every time. when i try to reinstate stereo i get a “Currently Unavailable, Close the JBL app on other phones and move your phone closer to JBL Charge 3” error message. I don’t have another phone with the App, and the phone is literally right next to the Charge 3...fix this dammit!!!!!!!
Pathetic useless app 1/5
First JBL product ever, and while my Charge 4 is pretty decent, I will never purchase another JBL product given how bad the software is. Software useability is more important to me. Even after the device is connected with Bluetooth, the app itself can't discover it. Latest iPhone, latest software, etc. this is a major fail.
By Me again?
Can’t pair a Charge 3 with either my iPhone or iPad.
Useful App But is Missing Key Features 4/5
By I HOPE THE DEVELOPERS SEE THIS
I recently purchased a pulse 3 and I absolutely love it! The light shows are bring and colorful even though a few of them aren’t exactly on beat. The app however is missing some key functionality features such as the ability to turn the speaker on/off and the light show as well. Secondly, there should be a setting to toggle the volume lights on/off separately because the light show stops to show the volume lights. Lastly, it would be nice to see a battery percentage for your speaker.
