Amazing app 5/5
Need to add Musi app to list of music apps thanks a bunch 🙏🔥
Terrible app 1/5
By some rando college kiddo
You’d think spending $800 on speakers would get you software that’ll easily be able to simply sync up two Bluetooth speakers. This app can’t even handle connecting more than one speaker at a time before it starts glitching. I ended up just connecting the two speakers manually through a cable, I’m very happy with them. Just disappointed that an app this bad even exists for them.
Awesome app! 5/5
By mark london 44
I just bought my Sony GTK-XB7 and this app allows me to have full control of my sound system. I can change the lights on it and much more.
Getting better 3/5
I have an STR-DN106 A/V receiver that I bought a number of years ago and didn't even know there was an app I could use until a little over a year ago. At first the app was useless, would consistently drop connection when it would connect which was only about 1/4 of the time. I started using it recently again and it has been a lot better. The receiver controls sound in multiple rooms and sits in a cabinet so it’s nice to have such easy access to the controls. I would have been much more frustrated if the app was required for the options. It’s come a long way but there’s still room for improvement. This app has the potential to be a great value added to Sony products but only if they’re able to improve its quality.
App review 3/5
It’s well worth buying Sony Speaker and head/earphones. The instructions on how to pair it with the app is a bit vague.
Not a bad app if you know how to get around it 4/5
I feel that most of the bad reviews are written by those that are not to technology educated. It’s not a very hard app to get around in...you are able to change the display, audio settings, music apps, and much more the from the app itself. Very easy way to fine tune the audio in my opinion plus a great way to customize its display which honestly is all you need.
Getting ready to try this new speaker out 3/5
By Goddess of Scorpions
I have been reading the reviews and hope al the bugs are out of the app. Finally. I wish I had a clue or someone techie that could show me the ropes or just tell me which way to buy
the best one. I would love for it to work out, however being an ole lady school teacher I will just wing it and practice trial and error... UGH!
App doesn’t work 1/5
By Garson Hedrick
The app is so frustrating I just got the new Sony MEXbt100 and the radio is amazing but it has a lot of extra features on the app itself and it might work 1/4 of the time. The Bluetooth never stays connected to the radio itself inside the app and I can’t ever use the app to control my radio like I’m supposed to. App needs to be fixed ASAP.
Sony LF-S50G not connecting 1/5
I have both Sony LF-S50G and SRS-XB20 but not able to connect them. The app do not detect the Sony smart speaker LF-S50G.
Audio Remote is much better 1/5
Your Audioremote app is much better!!!
Never got chained 1/5
Couldn’t put them to play together even with the app, really frustrated
Too slow 2/5
Why can’t it be up to date like the android version? Android version is much faster and fluid. Please fix
App is terrible. Sony doesn’t care. 1/5
There are plenty of reviews stating how awful this app is. Beyond bad. There was an update 4 days before writing this review ‘improving on the quality’ of the app, which is false. Nothing got better. All I want to do is adjust the EQ level of the speaker (speaker is great btw). Half the time I enter the app it tells me I need to re-setup everything. Garbage app.
Update: months later and it is still a pile of garbage. I keep seeing updates to ‘improve the quality of operation’, but nothing has been fixed. Each time I turn the speaker in it’s a gamble whether or not it will work. The app consistently fails to recognize, or it lists the speaker 5 times and says it needs setup, then crashes. I bought a second small speaker on sale and linked them using party chain. It works sometimes. Most of the time I need to turn them in and off a few times and re-group them each time before it works.
Sony— WHY ARE YOU SO BAD AT THIS. FIRE YOUR APP DESIGN TEAM AND START OVER. THEY BRING SHAME UPON YOU.
Shocked...atrocious software. Great speaker 1/5
As other reviews have reflected, the software REQUIRED to really use this speaker to its max is absolute garbage. Address this Sony. Even an acknowledgement & statement that it is being looked into would be better than now. Smh
Not working 1/5
By fundi steven
I downloaded this app for my iPhone 5s. I hoped it might work better but doesn’t works anymore.
I love it. And love Sony compony.
I disappointed with apps. Please fix this issue
Nice App. Suggestion.... 5/5
By JerseyB1G Rutgers
Nice App. Would love for their to be more solid colors options. For example, during “Chill” illumination their is a dope red color against the black body of the speaker. Unfortunately there is currently no way to keep the color on “Red” at all times.
black temp 4/5
this is good , but pls add dark theme to program , white at night in car very annoying
Why is this app collecting up to 1.5GB???? 2/5
What is being downloaded. I removed to save space maybe I don’t need this.
Sony speaker app 1/5
The speaker is a ten but this app is just horrible. I think Sony should at least update it so that it works better since it’s a little confusing.
Buggy app constant “Setup Needed” 1/5
The app is really really buggy. Sometimes it immediately recognizes the speaker and allows you to change the settings. Most times, you’ll see the speaker show up two or three times saying that it needs setup, then fails to do anything.
Wireless party grouping doesn’t work as a result. So far, I’ve only been able to group speakers together once, out of 20 tries so far.
Would be 0 stars if I could. Support for our receiver was ended a couple years ago, so we can never update the app or it won’t work with our model. Since the app-related functionality was part of why we chose this Sony receiver, that sucked. Even before that, the app won’t play nicely with my iOS Music app. It loops one song no matter what playback settings are selected, and will not access most of our music files no matter what I do. In short, the app is awful.
More bugs than a log 2/5
Such a pity that this app—and therefore features like party chain—are unreliable and frustrating. The speakers are cool if you can get them to sync but you can’t do it through the app with any reliability. I’m returning the speakers ASAP.
Works as if devs never used the app 2/5
For use with GTK-XB7
I can’t select every color available for the lighting.
The color setting needs to be saved before updated which is annoying I wish it just changed on selection.
Neither app nor speaker saves settings.
Needs serious work.
By I like!
I have two of the Sony SRS- XB21. Ever since the 5.12.0 update, my speakers always loose connection (to my phone) when I open this app, they become staticky then loose connection to my phone.
The worse 1/5
What the heck Sony I paid 215$ for head phone that have a delay in sound so video don’t match sound the battery doesn’t charge fully sometimes the worse head phones I have disgusting piece of garbage
Device name 1/5
You can’t even rename your device like other AirPods and Bluetooth headphones. I don’t like the MDX15858WX names I hope there will be a update for that.
Still a lot to like here. 5/5
Not gonna win app of the year but still has a lot of cool stuff to offer that help make their speakers that much more enjoyable
This app blows. Every time I get in the car, I have to take my phone out and wait for this app to prompt that it’s OK to use. Every. Single. Time. There is no option to just accept the already accepted and paired Bluetooth device.
The most annoying app I’ve ever used. 1/5
This App is so bad that I’m considering returning both of my Sony GTK-XB60 speakers because of it. It somewhat works if you have only one speaker, but it will drive you absolutely mad when trying to group for stereo use. EVERY time you leave the premises and Bluetooth disconnects, the speakers don’t reconnect as a stereo group or even remember their previous settings. The speakers revert back to an annoying default of Rave mode lighting, which will send you into a 1970s disco epileptic seizure. Then when you go in, try to reconnect, the regroup fails 9 times out of 10 times after taking 10 minutes of hour glass wait times to get to the appropriate screen. If anyone should write a functional app for these speakers please let me know. I will gladly buy it!!
This application is the worst! It does not manage the speakers well at all! Most of the time it does not connect up with Bluetooth then does not group the speakers. Multiple rounds of trying this and that. It does not work!!!! Volume is off. Just bad! Wish I had not bought Sony speakers! Lots of other options.
Really Sony?? 1/5
You can afford to hire anyone on the planet to code a working app for you. Whoever developed this app should be embarrassed. The speaker I purchased is fantastic, the app should be, as well.
Horribly complicated UNPREDICTABLE 1/5
Horribly complicated and terribly unpredictable. Grouping two speakers worked once - CANNOT GET IT TO WORK AGAIN! Wow, what a waste of time.
Please fix 1/5
Please make the connection process simpler. Most of us have to spend 20 minutes trying to connect two speakers. For me you have one speaker connected then turn on the next speaker. When you do that the app and phone will connect to the second speaker which now becomes the host and the speaker you need to click add speaker. Very confusing and frustrating!!!
XB41 Speakers are awesome, the app is JUNK! 1/5
I spent a small fortune buying 2 of the SRS-XB41 Bluetooth speakers, and they work great... sometimes... IF the app is working. Most of the time, I end up wasting 30 minutes trying to get them to connect and sync together, only for it to say “connection failed.” It’s really annoying! For the $$$, this app should work flawlessly, period!
Keeps crashing 2/5
I just bought the GTX-XB5 Bluetooth speaker and you have to use this app to take advantage of all the features but when you do the app keeps crashing I can not even make it through an entire song. I am using an IPhone 6 and also an IPad mini 4 both devices have the same issues. Luckily you can still use iTunes but unfortunately you can not utilize all the features. I am optimistic that they will fix this problem in the future
Srs-xb21 owner (x4) 1/5
I bought the Srs-xb21’s for each room in my hair salon. I can’t for the life of me keep the Sony Music Center up and running all day! The speakers are fantastic but the app constantly drops one or more of my speakers and the reconnection process is painstaking!! PLEASE FIX THIS APP!!
HT-XT1 after 3 years 5/5
It’s working great and so is the app not sure why others have issues. I controlled from my ipad, iPhone se and iPhone 6s and no issues streaming music or remote controlling the system.
Speaker connection lost 1/5
When i bought my speaker and download the app it was working awesome i can manage lights of the speaker turn the speaker off from the app after new update app when down side 😥 i had to deleted because the app it didn’t work and why have right
Just annoying... 2/5
I just bought the srs xb31 for $150, I love the speaker but you must have the app running and Bluetoothed in order to use any extra features.... ok that’s ok if it actually would work 1/4 if the time. It’s always losing its sync and goes to default. There’s a party mode where you can bang on the speaker to play drums and stuff and I love it! Gives you something to tap while listening to music but half 75% of the time the app doesn’t recognize the device even when I’m still playing music, so I have to close the app, turn bt off and on, reconnect because it doesn’t try to automatically, then go into the app crossing my fingers, and half the time it shows 3 extra speakers saying “need to be setup” but still doesn’t connect to mine.... so repeat. Finally have it working and your settings ready to go!? Well have fun when you lock your phone and go back into the app because it’s unsynced again... and just a helpful tip, don’t lock your phone while in the app, eventually you’ll have to restart your phone to even get it to work because it bugs out.... the quality of the speaker is what I expected with Sony but the app really ruins their reputation with me if I see “extra features in app”. Recommend the speaker if you just want good sound and bass, but don’t recommend it if you was wanting to use the extra features of the speaker and if that’s you deciding factor between $150 and another good speaker with as good quality for $60...
Horrible app great speakers 1/5
I got two Sony xb20s and the speakers are great. However the app if awful. If you want to group the two speakers together it is a nightmare. And it makes you do it every time you use them.
Very unpredictable 1/5
Sometimes connects mostly doesn’t, can’t find receiver or router.
Terrible app 1/5
Won’t connect to the speaker, even though the speaker is playing music from the device I’m trying to connect to it with. Can adjust the setting sometimes, but usually not. Difficult to even check the battery life. Not impressed.
Abysmal App- great speakers 1/5
By Hi nakug
Speakers are amazing but the app is seriously messed up. It really needs a major overhaul, and apparently it's been this way for a long time. Wireless party chain is hard to connect to and maintain, and it's absolutely useless to have to pair and set a speaker up to an iPhone allll the time.
Sony receiver app 1/5
I’ll never buy another Sony product again!!!
Needs a big update 3/5
This is a cool app but it needs a huge remodel. It's features are nice but it is bland overall.
What’s the point? 1/5
Can someone explain what the benefit of having this app? It just seems like an unnecessary step in accessing your music already in Apple Music or on Spotify. I could be mistaken.
Worst app ever made 1/5
By Buddy Love83
It’s so bad it messed up my headphones.now I can’t turn on or off my headphones.
By ممدوح بن فهد
Please Fix the App! 1/5
The speakers show up 4 times in my App.
Settings never stay “set” after you power off.
The App never connects to the speakers the first time. Takes several attempts to recognise.
Speakers are good though. Decent quality sound, reception and portability.
