Insanely buggy The app is more or less useless. Tried it on four different Android devices and versions, and I still can't get the app to work with my beoplay A9 mkII. In most of the time the app can't find the speaker at all. I have to kill the app and clear the app cache and then it if I'm lucky I'll get contact with the speaker one out of ten times. And when I get contact, the user interface get messed up after a while. Then I have to start all over again.
So far from ok List of bugs is endless. When re-opening the app it states that my WiFi isn't on. When searching for a band on Deezer eg. U2 the app only lists 4 albums, there is no way to see/find the rest. When clicking on an artist expecting the app to either show all available music/albums with this artists or at least play all available music, it just plays one track before playing other artists randomly. My A9 just got Chromecast, meaning I can leave the Beomusic app and actually start enjoying my A9.
Does not connect For a while now, it keeps saying that the android device and beo are not on the same WiFi. They are, but the app just cannot recognize that. It works better for my husband's apple phone. For an expensive equipment, not being able to connect is painful. B&O should feel pretty ashamed about this user experience.
Simply terrible Useless App: slow, buggy, glitchy. Please hire two undergrads from Stanford or Berkeley for 6 months and make us a real app. Not that difficult, come on, you can do it B&O!!!
Total failure on connection! The iOS version just works fine under exactly same network though! To B&O (or Beoplay more precisely? Cuz I cannot feel any attention paid to M5!) : If you haven't or cannot get software ready, DO NOT launch a new product! Another surprise: want ToneTouch in Beoplay to fix the ridiculous bass of M5? Forget it!
Expected better Pros: It usually works. Cons: Apple version is way better. Cannot control a beolink converter. Can't find the device after waking up/must restart. Cover art is B&W. Managing music queue from a NAS is a mess. I may buy an iPod to use as a remote since this this is so lame. If I didn't already have a huge investment in b&o, I'd probably return my equipment and never buy from them again. Please get your software act together!
