Definitely an improved app

I’ve never managed to get this app working properly in the past - ended up having to keep reinstalling, and had issues with multiroom.

However I’ve started using my Sony speakers again in my new house and the app is considerably better! I can now play via the network too which stops that annoying connection sound, plus lazily the speakers are left on standby so I don’t have to turn on. It’s still not as slick as I’d expect, but way better and essential if you have Sony speakers.

I haven’t found out how/if I can adjust the bass yet via the app, but I’d very much like to be able to do this please developers :)

For such good speakers and Sony being a giant company you’d expect an amazing companion app to fluidly and seamlessly adjust and altar settings and preferences to the user’s request however this app is extremely poor and slow, it feels like an app made in 2002 thats never been tended to or refreshed and upgraded. I am actually disgusted that Sony would publish an app of this bad of quality to be honest. Constant connection issues, speaker constantly duplicates itself on the device list causing errors and a pathetic excuse of ‘troubleshooting’, I even get to the point when my speaker will not change volume via phone or speaker because the app has gone wrong in some sort of way as per usual, then, after a little while, you obviously turned your phone up to full volume and when the speaker/app finally decides to kick in and work again, it blasts out at 100% volume out of nowhere or whatever volume you left it on hence because the volume mixer had frozen or broke. Fix it Sony C’mon its 2019 for crying out loud.

This app is useless. I bought a Sony SRS - XB41 wireless speaker.

You connect your speaker to your iPhone or iPad. No problem there.

When you open the app, it shows you’re connected and you can use all the features fine.

Say, you flick off the app to use another app, when you come back to the song app,
there will be another device which says “ Needs to be setup “.

So now you have 2 devices showing. The one you’re connected and the other saying need to set up.

The connected one will be greyed out. If you click the connected device, the app will attempt to connect again even though my music is still playing through the speaker.

It then says please connect to Bluetooth.

Whilst in this state, you’re unable to communicate with the speaker using phone.

You can’t lower volume, skip track etc etc.

When it says please connect the speaker to Bluetooth, I go settings, Bluetooth and then look at the available devices.

As expected, it shows my speaker is connected to my phone.

If I select the device which is already connected, nothing happens as it’s already connected.

Now, when I go back to the Sony app, it’s working.

Basically, everything I leave the app it’s working, when I go back the app is saying need to set up.

I have to constantly keep going Bluetooth settings to reconnect even if it’s still connected & playing my music.

Get a grip Sony.

Very very poor.
