Ultimate Ears MEGABOOM is one of the best selling wireless speakers in the world for good reason – it does a ton of cool things. And now it does even more.
Our first beta release features an integration with Amazon’s groundbreaking Alexa voice assistant that makes accessing your favorite music easier than ever. Just tap the bluetooth button on the top of your UE MEGABOOM to ask Alexa to stream your favorite music, provide track information or switch to a different playlist. If the party gets really crazy and you need more pizza or a lift home, you can access many of Alexa’s standard skills to make it happen. All without touching your phone.
We recommend that you first uninstall the main app before installing the beta. After installing the beta you’ll be prompted to update your speaker’s firmware. Once the update is complete you’ll need to sign into your Amazon account and then you’ll be able to access a wide variety of Alexa’s best features. Please note that not all Alexa services are available in this Beta.
SUPPORTED MUSIC SERVICES
Amazon Music / Amazon Music Unlimited
Amazon Prime Music
Features in the beta app are in active development and might not work perfectly on your mobile device or your Ultimate Ears MEGABOOM speaker and may not ever be released into the main Ultimate Ears MEGABOOM app. You can switch back to the main app at any time by deleting the beta from your device and reinstalling the main app. The Ultimate Ears MEGABOOM beta app will not be updated on a regular basis, so after experimenting with new features, you may want to revert to the main app to receive the best possible experience.
NOT AVAILABLE IN BETA
The beta app doesn’t support Alexa's Alarm feature, but the current alarm feature available in the main app will still work. The beta app will also disable tap to talk integrations with Siri or Google Assistant (if you have those configured). You can restore all these features by uninstalling the beta app and reinstalling the main app.
As a beta tester you can provide us with invaluable feedback on new features. To provide us with feedback or report bugs, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Enjoy the beta, we can’t wait to hear your feedback!
