Ratings and Reviews
App and Device work, audio quality is pitiful!
I found the setup and use of this device pretty easy. I had it set up in just few minutes and streaming video and audio without a problem. Some of the negative reviews with connection issues might be because of a bad WiFi connection. You do want a strong signal with a good S/N ratio at the location where you put the Furbo.
My only complaint is with the speaker quality in the device. Using the 2-way talk feature to talk to your dog sounds horrible! I had my wife leave the house while I stayed a listened and the sound quality coming out of the device was barely intelligible! I’m surprised by this because the pre-recorded sounds that the Furbo can make do sound decent. I know my iPhone is capable of recording high quality audio with its microphone. I think it may be possible that the app is very poorly compressing and downgrading the quality of your voice before beaming it over to the Furbo. I would love to hear from the developer what audio format is being used for transmission. It sounds like a potato!
I was BEYOND excited to receive Furbo as a Christmas gift. However, I do not believe there is value in this product due to the ridiculous “subscription” for “premium” features. Furbo considers dog “selfies”, person detection, and a daily diary to be “premium”. You get a free trial, and they you have to pay a monthly fee to continue using those features. They claim it is due to cloud services, however this could be easily remedied by adding an option to put an SD card in the camera for future models. The fee is not disclosed to the buyer until their trial runs out because they’re still “figuring out the price” which really sounds like a scam to me. If they want to do this, I think it would be more fair to offer a certain amount of storage for free, then if you’d like to store more than that you can pay. That would actually be a “premium” service in my opinion, instead of shutting out features that you use to help sell your product.
On the level of the app, it does freeze sometimes but is mostly reliable. My biggest annoyance is that the sound is on full blast when I open the app, even if the phone is on silent. I have to manually turn down the volume on my phone every time. There isn’t an option to mute sound, only control the sound of the speaker on the furbo itself. Please add this as an option; it makes it impossible to check in at work without headphones.
Room for Growth
Furbo is a great product that allows pet parents and their furbabies to connect while apart from one another. No matter the distance furbo will let you check in on your pet barring WiFi signal. Fortunately I have not experienced any connection issues that have altered my experience. That being said I believe furbo can build upon their already great product. A simple feature I would love to have would be allowing you to record a number of messages you could play when you are not able to speak over the microphone. Let’s say you are at work or around a group of people that maybe you don’t want to hear your puppy talk. Having the ability to say what you want with a press of a button would be amazing. There’s been plenty of times I wanted to tell my dog I love and miss them but also knew I would catch a stare or two. Having a feature like this would really improve pet to owner interaction and the amount of time spent using the app. Overall the furbo does an outstanding job at performing what it was built for and I recommend it to any other dog owner
