About this app

The Thrive Hearing Control app works seamlessly with sensor-enabled hearing aids to give you full control of your hearing. Change settings easily, adjust volume, create customized memories, and stream music or phone calls with the touch of a button.

The Thrive app gives you access to Healthable features like social engagement and activity tracking. You can set goals and your Engagement Score and Activity Score will track how close you are to meeting them daily. The Thrive app also offers information services like Thrive Assistant, Translate, Transcribe, and Self Check, which lets you check your hearing aid performance without an office visit.

And that’s just the beginning. Thrive also offers:

Industry-leading sound performance provides you with instantaneous adjustments for the most challenging listening situations.

Easily adjust your hearing aid volume and change between memories created by you or your hearing professional.

Create custom memories using manual and customizable sound adjustments. And geotag these memories so your hearing aids automatically adjust when returning to that location.

Designed to help you stay independent, falls can be detected, and alert messages sent to selected contacts.

Track steps and other activity and set daily goals to inspire a healthy lifestyle. Monitor hearing aid use and social engagement and set daily goals to positively impact brain health.

Ask questions about your hearing aids like, “how do I adjust volume?” or general questions like, “what’s the weather today?” and get quick answers.

This first-to-world feature helps you easily communicate with people who speak other languages.

You can use the Thrive app to share helpful information like physical activity, hearing aid usage and social engagement with people you select who have the new Thrive Care app. This helps you maintain independence and provides peace of mind for the Thrive Care users you selected.

Allows you to perform a diagnostic test of your hearing aid components without having to make an office visit.

It’s like closed captioning for real life. Conversations are transcribed so you can read what's being said.

Get help anywhere. Connect with your hearing professional by video call and obtain minor hearing aid adjustments directly to your hearing aids and smartphone.

Easily locate lost hearing aids. A signal detector sends a stronger or weaker signal based on how close you are to the location of the hearing aids.

Enables carefree communication using your Android phone. Delivers superior sound and pristine audio streaming of any music or media played through your Android device.

The Thrive app works with hearing aids from Starkey, Audibel, NuEar, MicroTech and AGX® Hearing. These hearing aids must be purchased from a hearing professional. All features are not available on all hearing aid styles. Check with your hearing professional for details.

*Due to the large number of different Android phones and their capabilities with connecting and streaming audio to hearing aids, Starkey cannot guarantee full compatibility of this Thrive app with all phone models. Please visit here for current compatibility:

I have a Galaxy 3Z Fold that has not yet been listed as compatible with the app. For the most part, I've not really had any issues with the basic app capabilities other than having to pair/unpaired a few times. My biggest issues is in not being able to create and save custom settings. Hoping that there soon be an update that will make this possible. The Z3's have been out for quite a while at this point. Any ETA's?

Gosh this app is a wreck. I currently only have one hearing aid since the other one is in for repairs and for some reason the app just won't connect to my hearing aid now that it isn't part of a pair. Even before this there were massive issues. My premade settings would routinely get deleted, the app would crash or disconnect my hearing aids, or it would fail to display the correct remaining battery life. The demo version shows what could have been. It's the only app I've got, but I hate it.

Please unpair the hearing aids. Download the current Thrive Hearing Control and pair the hearing aids to the phone using the prompts from the app.

Very,disappointed,app will not stay connected with hearing aids ! Have had to uninstall and reinstall the app multiple times a day and still won't stay connected, one or both keep going on and off Connection. This is very inconvenient when I already have a hearing problem. The app needs a complete overhaul to fix these major issues! These hearing aids are not cheap , and not being able to use the app is a big negative! I know it's not the HA because app will work on my iPad & not android phone
