I'll start by saying I love this speaker! The wifi function is great if you want to stream audio from one of the apps it supports. However, if you want to play music wirelessly from any other app (like podcasts, NPR One, audiobooks, etc.) you'll have to use the bluetooth setting.
My problem is when I switch over to bluetooth by pressing M/play/pause button the device never appears on my phone or computer in the bluetooth settings. I've used other bluetooth speakers and have never had this problem.
Am I doing something wrong?
I just got it today at FYE. I've been charging it for an hour now and the red light, which indicates that it still needs to be charged, is on. I'm not upset about that at all but u was wondering if it can be used while charging because I can't get it to turn on while plugged in and when I unplug it it still won't turn on... I assume while unplugged the problem is that it is still dead. I'll leave a review with more detail when I can get it to turn on.
The app isn't available on google play, I followed the directions in the manual and searched for it and used the QR code to find it. no luck I was really looking forward to this feature. Probably gonna take it back
Bought this as a Christmas gift for its sleek, compact design and great sound quality. But it'll be going back... the app fails to connect the speaker to Wifi, even using the alternate method. Speaker only connects when pressing WPS button on router, but then fails to reconnect automatically when powered on again. Customer service confirmed this is normal. And bluetooth & aux are inconvenient b/c speaker always defaults to wifi when turned on.
Bought this product at FYE. Brought it home, charged it, won't turn on. No lights no noise nothing. Which leads me to believe that they are not made well. Also FYE had it listed on sale for $169.00. When that is the listed price.
