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:

Recent update will not connect. Uninstalled the app and it only stays in demo mode, cannot change volume or tinnitus. Pretty much useless now and will get a different manufacturer, too many problems over the years. NEW INFO 8/23/2023 - Thrive app has been updated and I cannot get it to get out of demo mode. Hearing aids do not connect, I'm on Android which I know your support is limited. I have an iPhone hanging around, loaded the app and it connects but loses features constantly. What do I do?

When hearing aids will actually connect with Bluetooth to the phone then this app becomes useful. Unfortunately, the bt connectivity is very poor and therefore this app basically becomes useless. Once bt connectivity stops working, which is frequently (daily), the only way I have been able to get things to work again is to basically uninstall this app and forget the aids for bt and then reset everything back up -- not good. I really don't use this app anymore due to the hassles.

Most of the features advertised or exhibited in the demo mode are not active or even visible in the downloaded app. Still trying to figure out the best settings for removing voice distortion. I found I'm raising the volume to almost max on the device. I've had these hearing aids for a year-and-a-half and sending them in now for the batteries taking several days to charge. Doc gave me a loaner. Was told it was a better model than mine since purchased, and it will not connect to the app. Ugh
