With the new Pulse 2 update, I now have access to the equalizer and waves mode, along with better audio quality. On comments questioning the Bluetooth, you must open you settings, go to Bluetooth, and CLICK on your device! It does not connect automatically! Items such as adjusting bass, treble, and mid are NOT accessible (4 star), but is said to be accessible in the JBL music app that I am downloading and will write a review on shortly after tests. The connectivity between app and speaker seems spot on while the app may only be needed to update the speaker, and not used every time you use your Pulse 2 speaker (buttons are preset onto speaker after update). HOWEVER, the app WILL NOT connect sometimes. In order to fix this, turn off your Bluetooth and speaker and attempt to reconnect over and over till it connects. This mainly happens when more than 1 device is being used on the speaker.
Update: THEY REMOVED MY FAVORITE MODES! Great! Just great! I no longer have Wave or Equalizer mode on my Pulse 2. Seriously. JBL, you are screwing up bad.
We have been pairing two JBL Flip 3's via this app; both were purchased in December 2015. The first step was to update the software on both of them (one at a time) using this app and connecting the speaker to a power source. When paired with each other using this app it worked well enough (it even differentiated the speakers based on their actual color), though any kind of volume change would cause one speaker to cut in and out for 10 to 20 seconds until it "caught up." I'm not sure if this is because the phone is connected to only one of the speakers and then that speaker is connected to the other speaker, or perhaps it could also be the phone is connected to both speakers at once and the bluetooth signal isn't quite strong enough. Either way, there is a lag time for any volume inputs that *would* be slightly annoying in a party setting. Once "caught up" though, it worked well. It seemed the max distance for the phone from the speakers was cut way down when paired with both. I would recommend having the phone somewhere between them. Worth a download, but will hopefully be updated to be even more seamless (if that lag is even fixable).
Solid app; limited features
I’ll start by saying that when I first set up my JBL Pulse 3, while I was overall happy with the lightshow, it wasn’t as fluid or on beat as I expected. It seemed more like random lights flashing than actually in sync with the music. There was also occasional skipping which I chalked up to the walls in my apartment compromising the Bluetooth connection. I had an iPhone 6s and just upgraded to the 8, and the difference is night and day. The lights are much more fluid now and RIGHT on beat. Sharp rapid movements, and smooth transitions. The app makes switching between light shows and adjusting brightness a breeze. I keep it at full brightness during the day and dim it at night. I gave 4 stars instead of 5 because I wish there was a way to turn the device On and Off from the app. Also, when scrolling through the different light shows, there should be an option to turn the lights Off, but there isn’t. You have to physically hold the Light button on the device itself.
