The Thrive Hearing Control app works seamlessly with sensor-enabled hearing aids like Livio Edge AI to give you complete control of your hearing aids. Change settings easily, adjust volume quickly, create customized memories and stream music or phone calls with the touch of a button.

The Thrive app also gives you access to healthable features like brain and body activity tracking. You can set goals and your Brain Score and Body Score will let you know how close you are to meeting them. The Thrive Score is a combination of your Brain and Body scores. The Thrive app also offers information services like Thrive Assistant, Translate, Transcribe, and Self Check, which lets you check your hearing aid performance without an office visit.

And that’s just the beginning. Thrive also offers:

Easily adjust your hearing aid volume and change between memories that were either custom-created by you or created by your hearing professional.

Create multiple custom memories via any of the customized options in the app. Memories can also be geotagged so your hearing aids will adjust automatically when you return to that location.

Designed to help you stay independent, falls can be detected, and alert messages sent to selected contacts.

Track steps and other movements and set daily goals. Tracking fitness activities has been shown to inspire people to continue or increase their activity. Thrive integrates directly with Apple Health app.

Monitor hearing aid use and social engagement and set daily goals. This can encourage more social interaction which can positively impact brain health.

You can ask questions about your hearing aids like, “how do I adjust volume?” or general questions like, “what’s the weather today?” and get quick answers.

This first-to-world feature helps you easily communicate with people who speak other languages.

You can use the Thrive app to share helpful information like physical activity, hearing aid usage and social engagement with people you select and who have the new Thrive Care app. This helps you maintain independence and provides peace of mind for the Thrive Care users you share with.

Allows you to perform a diagnostic test of your hearing aid components without having to make an office visit.

It’s like closed captioning for real life. Conversations are transcribed so you can read what's being said.

Request minor hearing aid adjustments remotely without making an office visit. Your hearing professionals will deliver the new adjustments directly to your smartphone and hearing aids.

Easily locate lost hearing aids. A signal detector sends a stronger or weaker signal based on how close you are to the location of the hearing aids.

Enables carefree communication using your iPhone®. Delivers superior sound and pristine audio streaming of any music or media played through your iOS device. You can also have Siri® read emails and texts directly to your hearing aids.

With Adaptive Car Mode, hearing aids will automatically change to a setting designed to reduce the annoying sounds of driving and enhance your overall driving experience.

Gives you easy control of hearing aid accessories.

The Thrive app works with sensor-enabled and MFi-certified hearing aids from Starkey, Audibel, NuEar, MicroTech and AGX Hearing. These hearing aids must be purchased from a hearing professional. Fall Alert and Body and Brain health tracking are only available with sensor-enabled hearing aids.

All features are not available on all hearing aid styles. Check with your hearing professional for details.

Having same issues as everyone else. I’m using I phone. Doesn’t connect about half the time through app. No easy way to connect to different devises. Have to turn blue tooth off on phone and on other devise or will try to connect both devises at same time. Why don’t it show up on blue tooth menu on the phone that hearing devises are connected? The volume on your hearing aids will adjust on its own after taking calls. Just two options to turn media or calls on to Bluetooth. Who wants maps to talk in your ear when driving listen to music. Then you have to be on teams for online meeting and are scrambling to turn the media back on to your ears. Should have read the reviews on here before the purchase. Had these for a week and the devises are great. Not so much for the app software. Back to the drawing board for the app creator. Going with different brand.

Hi, Gorge, you would need to let Apple know about your wish list of changes. The hearing aids don't show up in the Bluetooth section because hearing aids have accessibility functions. I believe you might benefit from turning off all streaming function on the phone, and only turn it on when it is going to meet your needs. You are right that an educated consumer is a wise one. I'm happy that you are hearing well.

Pleasantly suprised!

Read some of the review and not sure people understand Bluetooth is only able to connect to one device at a time. I see a lot who are not happy they have to turn of Bluetooth on phone to connect to iPad. This is a bluetooth issue and not an app issue. This will always be the case until Bluetooth is advanced and updated. Also remember the Bluetooth connection comes from the phone/iPad not the hearing aid. If you have issues with dropping connections make sure you don’t have it set up on both. I only keep app on my phone and the connection has been strong. I do connect to my Ipad when I have the need but have never put the app on there. At first it would try to switch between them and I would get streaming in one ear. I changed the apple hand off feature to off and have had good results. I was advised to toggle Bluetooth on/off if there is ever an issue to renew the connection. I have several Bluetooth speakers and have done the same if the connection is lost. Bluetooth is not the strongest signal. Hence the reason you can use it on an airplane. It will and can be broken by other frequency interference. I believe in the last 30 days I have cycled my Bluetooth connection twice. I also turn my phone off weekly as Apple recommends. Overall I feel this is the best Hearing aid I have owned out of five previous sets in my 30 years of hearing loss.

Thank you for your feedback. You have done a great job of summarizing the challenges.


Lacks documentation

I really like that the app lets you adjust and customize your experience with your hearing aids. I just wish that some of the adjustment features were explained more thoroughly. For example, the background noise adjustments for speech, noise, and wind. The icons at each ends of the slider are not intuitive. Is it the noise you hear from minimum to maximum, or is it the amount of correction for noise, from minimum to maximum. I’ve experimented with the wind setting, and I can’t really tell much difference. A little explanation would really help guide that experimentation to see if I notice a more pronounced difference over time.

In addition, the user guide appears to be missing some of the features available in the app, and other features listed in the user guide cannot be found in the app. For instance, the Translate tool is mentioned in the guide, but I can’t find it anywhere in the app itself. Also, there is a button on the volume control that isn’t explained anywhere in the user guide. It’s like the app was updated, but the user guide wasn’t. App version 3.1.0

Better documentation of features and updating the guide would turn this app from 3 stars to 5.

Thank you for your feedback. The user guide should state 'Set the level of background noise reduction desired for your current memory. Tap to the right for more background noice reduction.' In your words it would be from minimum to maximum. The button on the volume control screen might be the comfort boost option. The list of features is set based on the highest level of technology you can acquire from Starkey. The user guide isn't dynamic based on your device.
