This has to be the worst app I have ever downloaded on my iPhone. The app rarely connects to the speaker to setup WiFi. Once it finally connects and allows me to get it working, the speaker will lose connection and I have to try and go through the entire process all over again. The speaker will also not connect via Bluetooth. I do not recommend this app nor the new Yamaha YAS-109 sound bar. Save your money and purchase something else.

Great App

This app is a little buggy at first but a little trouble shooting will fix a lot of people’s issues. If you have a WiFi issue once you download this app. Close app and reboot phone and boom it connects instantly. All the other bugs with sound bar are fixed with a quick firmware update through the app once connected. If you can’t get connected to the app. Download firmware to a flash drive and follow update manual on Yamaha website. If you need help call support.

Works fine for me

Downloaded this app for my new YAS_109. Maybe I got lucky as the app update came out 3 days ago. It found my device in 3 seconds. Firmware update took a few minutes. I was hooked up to Alexa soon after. I did take me some to figure out the ARC HDMI setting on my TV. Turn off TV speakers, enable ARC. This app works fine. Wish they had more streaming connections like pandora, but that works through Alexa app anyway.
