2017-09-03: This app has improved remarkably since my last review and the firmware update process is pretty smooth and is more reliable now. Older: I was a bit nervous about the firmware update to version F since it was first update to the Backbeat and it started by failing to start at all in OnePlus One. Instead it stopped connecting through Bluetooth after the first attempt. I then tried with a Nexus 7 and the update went through with no issues. May be it's Android that has issues, I don't know. :)
Firmware update went fine, not sure why others on here had a problem however what I really wanted was to have the battery level display on my status bar. not sure if this is an app issue as much as it is an android issue. I know the iPhone does display this when comnected.
My headphones are now bricked thanks to this update. Was connected to power source as well. Will not even turn on
Read some reviews about bricking the headphones. Kept mine connected to a power source and all worked well. Thumbs up for the constant firmware updates
Issues with playback controls after latest upgrade of firmware. I used to be able to skip , stop and so on in Spotify and other music apps using the fit controls however after the update pressing the control button just stops the music for 2 seconds and it continues playing the same song. It won't pause not will it jump to a next song.
Brand new headphones worked fine. Installed app and it said update required. Ran update with both devices plugged in sitting next to each other and update failed. Headphones now will not turn on and flash magenta color. Got on Plantronics support chat and I have to send them back for replacement... WOWWWWWWW DON'T INSTALL THE UPDATE UNLESS LIKE LIKE ROLLING THE DICE. CONGRATS YOU BOUGHT OUR PRODUCT AND FOLLOWED THE INSTRUCTIONS ON THE BOX YOUR REWARD IS TO SEND THEM BACK AND WAIT!!!
