App Reviews

  • 🤬🤬🤬

    By Dee Dee G
    Charge 3 & Flip 3. Both work well independently, which is what they are supposed to do. Both DO NOT work together, which IS NOT what they are supposed to do. The whole purpose of buying these was to connect them. I would give this app ZERO stars if it were possible. Offering to have products connect and they can’t connect is like going to buy a car knowing that 4 wheels are required make the car roll....then when you replace a tire the car turns on but it won’t move. This connection of these devices is an essential part of the products overall performance. It’s obvious by all the comments and the ratings left buy consumers that are just as irritated as I am, the JBL’s performance for these “connected” devices is nonexistent. What is your company going to do to rectify this issue? Too bad we can’t do a class action lawsuit like they do with carmakers. And ask for pain and suffering for all of the foolishness and time wasted in trying to get something to work THAT SHOULD WORK AS ADVERTISED. 😡😡😡 Not. Pleased.
  • JBL Charge 3 Connect+ Update

    By Loader157
    I’ve updated the Charge 3 a few months back, while I understood the downfalls upgrading to connect + would be from leaving the normal JBL Connect in the past I decided to do so. Upgrade process only took a couple of mins, Charge 3 shuts off, & boots up with the pairing mode okay 🤔. Now I tested it My Charge 3 with my JBL Boombox, the Boombox being Connect+ enabled by Default I listened to a couple of tracks, I Right away noticed drop outs (Constantly) Which I guess is because of the software update, & or just not having 2 of the same speakers (2x JBL Boombox 2x JBL Charge 3) Which shouldn’t make a difference when you’re going to add more units along the way. Time to time I use both speakers in party mode, Which sounds good, but the delay in when you play (Any media content) takes time for the other speaker which is not the Master to come in to (Sync) Overall if I am going to purchase more JBL Connect+ enable speakers, JBL needs to come out with an software update to JBL Connect+ to fix these Minor issues. Also an update for previous Connect Enabled speakers to be upgraded to Connect+ My overall Cons V.S Pros Cons (JBL Connect+) • Delay in Start up in media content • Sync issue within playing music Pros • Connect 100+ JBL Connect+ enabled speakers together • PartyMode • Stereo Mode
  • Last upgrade?!

    By SausageGravy
    What happened to the awesome sound?! My Extreme was getting such great, clear, sound until the last upgrade! How is it that an upgrade screws over the customer so bad! My Extreme had perfect sound, I could turn it up really loud & it held all the sound just fine. Deep, thick, warm bass that was a real part of every song. Bass like it's supposed to be. Mids & highs were great too. NOT NOW!!! Big business & technology just screws over the freaking product like the tech is the most important part! This is a $300 piece of crap now! I better shut up or JBL will make me pay 3 figures for the tech. Back in the days of analog, & early digital, stereos did what the customer who purchased it wanted. This is a first!! A bunch of JUNK! Now the speaker does NOT hold the sound at higher levels. The bass NOW sounds like a muffled dead thud. Like it's not a part of the song. Like it's in a sealed aquarium then set out in the hallway away from the rest of the song. Terrible! This a major mess over on an otherwise good product. BTW, I hope the upgrade at least fixed the battery indicator lights. The sound at least made this a great product besides that. BULL CRAP PIECE OF IDIOT CRAP NOW! THANKS JBL! WONT TELL ANOTHER SOUL ABOUT YOUR PRODUCTS! SONY HAS GOOD SOUND AT A SMALLER PRICE! If this doesn't get fixed I will turn from JBL & never look back & all my free advertising will go to the next great sounding speaker.
  • Not yet optimal

    By PokemanMastr366
    I've been using the connect app since the pulse 2 had come out for the light adjustments, and after purchasing a pulse 3 there really has only been two improvements. Personally I think ambient sounds should come back for the fire and wave settings, secondly there should be a way to make the red portion of the color wheel work a little better, whenever I go to put it as red I get a sort of dull hue of red that just doesn't match what the speakers color cycle shows (like when you first start the equalizer setting). One more thing that isn't necessary but would be nice is to bring back the random color switch when the speaker is shaken instead of just restarting the light mode to the beginning, I'm not sure if that's possible to be added in an firmware update but would be nice.
  • FINALLY!!! Can connect Charge 3 & Flip 4!!!

    Needed to update Charge 3 firmware. ***YOU MUST HAVE THE CHARGE 3 PLUGGED IN THE WALL/CHARGING THE BATTERY WHILE UPDATING*** Do not close out of the JBL app while updating either. As an added benefit, my Charge 3 SOUNDS SO MUCH BETTER. The update enhances the treble; whereas before, voices were muffled. Everything took about 15 minutes. I did NOT update my Flip 4. It is senseless to “update” any speaker if it’s working perfectly. Too many times, a so called “update” is responsible for downgrading performance. Overall, YAYEEEEEE!!!! Finally, after a yearlong wait, I can begin purchasing additional speakers to perform as they’re advertised. Imagine that! Developers make the app do what it’s supposed to; and Voila! Revenue raises.
  • Lots of Bugs?

    By Woanka84
    When I first downloaded the app the only speaker that I could get the app to recognize was the Flip 4. I have lots of JBL speakers: the Flip 4 x3, Clip 3 x2, Charge 3, Link 10, also various headphones and some older portable speakers so I obviously love the product. After updating the app also after writing JBL support, the app won’t recognize any speakers and insists that my Bluetooth is not turned on. This app should let my newer Flip, Clip, and Charge work together however that’s not happening and I’m not the only one. So what’s up to the developer? Also weird when I first got the speakers before downloading the app I could link all my Flips together every easy now it seems extremely difficult I know the speakers aren’t getting any updates and remain unchanged but weird I guess. Hope it gets fixed soon
  • Finally got rid of the idiotic startup and shutdown sounds

    By FabioFTE
    Today’s update brought Connect+ to my Charge 3, which I may never use but I appreciate the update. It’s nice when companies actually go back and introduce features to older hardware. That upgrade is mentioned in the notes. What isn’t mentioned is that they finally provided the ability to turn off the mind-numbing, sophomoric startup, shutdown, connect and searching sounds (this is done with the “Audio feedback sounds” toggle in the app). It is now finally possible to use my Charge 3 in an adult environment. Thank you very much, JBL.
  • JBL believer!

    By Justtestingthisish
    This review is basically in response to the only other review under this app. I’ve recently purchased a JBL Charge 3. It’s by far the best speaker at its price point and after using my roommates own for a few weeks I decided to buy my own and hence the reason for downloading this app. The connect+ app worked seamlessly with the two Charge 3 speakers and the stereo feature is amazing. The sound quality and ease of this app to use make the listening experience even more enjoyable. Can’t wait to add a pulse or extreme to mix and here how that sounds. Great job JBL. #newestcustomerforlife
  • Very helpful

    By jbl рускии
    Most people would say they hate it because you can’t connect to the other different devices, people must know you have to have two of the same device to pair up, and that’s not the point of this app, this app brings you lightshows and you can even name your speaker if wanted so it’ll come up in the Bluetooth section, lightshows are very cool and it creates comfort wherever you are, also with it beating to the music is really fun to watch, you can light up your room in different ways and at feels really nice. Overall great product and great app
  • I like the speakers... I don’t like the software.

    By Bogie_Butts
    I use two flip 4 speakers that sound amazing when they are set to stereo. The sound good in mono also, but stereo just rocks. My issue with the software is that I don’t know why the default isn’t to automatically go into stereo when a second speaker is connected. That would feel so much better. Instead, I have to open an app, Wait as long as a minute sometimes for the second speaker to connect, and hen manually switch to stereo. If this isn’t bad enough, pausing the music, receiving a call, changing the sound playing app can all switch the speakers to stereo and in which case, you have to manually switch it back. I would almost prefer not to know that a stereo mode exists.
