Bose Connect unlocks the full potential of your Bose Bluetooth® Product.
EASY ACCESS TO EVERYTHING
Get quick access to the key features on your products, like the auto-off timer, volume control, and battery readings. And it’s the easiest way to manage multiple Bluetooth connections. But that’s just the beginning.
SHARE THE MUSIC
MUSIC SHARE lets you listen together. Now two pairs of Bose® wireless headphones can share the experience - listen together, at the same time, while one of you DJ’s. New PARTY MODE lets you sync two SoundLink® speakers for double the audio…ideal for listening in two different places, and new STEREO MODE immerses you in music by separating the sound into Left and Right channels across two paired speakers for that amazing stereo experience.
GET THE MOST OUT OF YOUR HEADPHONES
CONTROLLABLE NOISE CANCELLATION on our QC®30 headphones lets you decide how much of the world to let in by adjusting the level of noise cancellation right in the app. And the built-in HEART RATE MONITOR for our SoundSport® Pulse headphones displays your heart rate clearly in the app.
AND SO MUCH MORE
From viewing product details to personalizing settings, get the most out of your Bose wireless products. It even downloads the latest software in the background and only installs it when you’re ready. See how our simple app can make all the difference.

Ratings and Reviews
Significantly improved app
I began using the Bose Connect app in 2016 with the Bose SoundLink II wireless headphones. The app back then did what it was intended to do but there were no additional features that made having Bose Connect installed on my phone worthwhile, i.e. a standard Bluetooth connection was good enough.
The newer app, used in conjunction with the Bose QC35 II, is an excellent feature-rich addition to the quality Bose device experience. The NFC pairing with compatible devices makes connecting effortless. A huge feature in my opinion is the capability to receive notification of device firmware updates, then install over the air without setting up a physical connection. There are a number of additional convenience features such as device specific adjustments, device naming and music sharing that boost the usefulness of the Bose Connect app.
I have had a few slow experiences with using the Music feature of the app while connected to Apple Music. I am not sure if the value of this feature anyway, using the native Apple Music app seems to be more intuitive. Lastly, add the ability to register devices from within the app itself. This could be useful since the Bluetooth connection identifies devices and Serial Numbers once paired.
Works Pretty Good
The Bose App works as intended. If you have noise cancelling headphones like the Quiet Control 30 it is especially nice because you can easily dial up or down the level of noise cancellation and see a visual graph. You also use this app for firmware updates. This area needs improvement because the process is very slow. Firmware update needs to be redesigned because you have to have the app up and running plus the headphone turned on and in range for the app to transfer the data into the phone. After data transfer to the phone is complete, update to the headphone is fast. What needs to happen is once the data starts transferring to the phone you should be able to turn off the headphones and the data should keep downloading to the phone until complete. Then the next time you turn on the headphone the data should transfer from the phone to the headphone. Currently you have to leave the headphone on for the data to download to the phone. This is a slow process and a pain in the you know where. If you turn the headphone off during this process the data stops downloading to the phone. It will pick back up when you turn the headphone on.
This review is for the October 2017 update. I update the app, which is required with Bose QC30 Bluetooth ear pieces, after each update so my one star review isn't unfair. Problem with the app is that function has steadily gotten worse not better. Boses latest update reduced the frequency of one problem only to create another. Around half of the time the sound in the headphones will spontaneously rise until a shrill warning beep sounds 2-3X per second which won’t shut off. The latest problem is a voice command telling me to select English goes off; it can't be turned off until the unit powers down. There is no way to get either of the glitches to stop. Push buttons, disconnect the Bluetooth, charge it, nothing. The volume spontaneously rises or falls and the sound is either earsplitting or non existent. None of the button functions work. If i switch to Apple phones the problems go away. Uninstalling used the app used to correct the problem for a day or so, now it doesn't . The app won’t allow itself to be turned off if BT function is on so you can’t install in on two devices. When running the phone can’t be carried in a pocket, because it keeps turning the screen on resulting in garbled sound. Never a problem with $29 apple Headphones. The app needs serious work. Not recommended. One star for great audio quality, minus 4 for poor execution.
