UE Bluetooth Speakers Get Block Party Feature

Ultimate Ears Block Party App Lifestyle

Ultimate Ears just rolled out a new app update and over-the-air firmware upgrade to their UE BOOM 2UE ROLL and UE MEGABOOM portable 360-degree Bluetooth speakers. Once installed each speaker can be used in Block Party mode that allows up to three smartphones or tablets to be connected simultaneously to the same speaker, which lets multiple people control the music. In addition, the firmware update adds the capability to tap the top of the MEGABOOM to play, pause, and skip  — a feature which first debuted on the UE BOOM 2. So you can leave your phone in your pocket and control songs directly through your UE BOOM 2 and UE MEGABOOM, simply by tapping the top of the speaker.

Ultimate Ears software updates improve upon what the app and speaker combo already provides, including the ability to wake up in the morning to your favorite music through the alarm clock, custom-tune your speaker using the five-band equalizer, remotely turn on and off the speaker and pair multiple UE speakers through Double Up.

“We live in a world with multiple music services and devices,” said Rory Dooley, general manager of Ultimate Ears. “With Block Party, we’ve made it as simple and as easy as possible for you to share your music. Through the app, we make our already awesome speakers better over time as we continue to unlock more ways for you to get the most from your speaker, from Double Up to Tap Controls and now, Block Party.”

Availability
The app enhancement is expected to be available through the iOS and Android app stores on October 20, 2015.
