Alexa Arrives on Ultimate Ears Speakers

  • PDF

Two more speakers get integration with the Amazon voice-controlled assistant-- the Ultimate Ears Boom 2 and Megaboom speakers, at least when paired with the Android version of the companion app.

Ultimate Ears AlexaTo summon Alexa, users simply need to press the Bluetooth button and issue a voice command with anything Alexa is capable of doing. However, it does involve some limitations. First off, as mentioned earlier it is only available on the Android app, specifically through the exclusive "Just Tap and Ask" feature.

Secondly the app and firmware updates involved with Alexa are not available for all Android devices-- specifically the Pixel and OnePlus phones, as well as the Huawei Mate 9-- due to "known experience reasons."

Either way, curious customers can update their Ultimate Ears portable speakers with Alexa now.
