Ultimate Ears BOOM 2 is one of the best selling wireless speakers in the world for good reason – it does a ton of cool things. And now it does even more.

Our first beta release features an integration with Amazon’s groundbreaking Alexa voice assistant that makes accessing your favorite music easier than ever. Just tap the bluetooth button on the top of your Ultimate Ears BOOM 2 to ask Alexa to stream your favorite music, provide track information or switch to a different playlist. All without touching your phone.

We recommend that you first uninstall the main app before installing the beta. After installing the beta you’ll be prompted to update your speaker’s firmware. Once the update is complete you’ll need to sign into your Amazon account and then you’ll be able to access a wide variety of Alexa’s best features. Please note that not all Alexa services are available in this Beta.

Currently the BOOM 2 is supported for the beta. The original BOOM is not supported at this time. MEGABOOM users can install the beta from the separate Ultimate Ears MEGABOOM BETA app also available on the Play Store.

Features in the beta app are in active development and might not work perfectly on your mobile device or your Ultimate Ears BOOM 2 speaker and may not ever be released into the main Ultimate Ears BOOM app. You can switch back to the main app at any time by deleting the beta from your device and reinstalling the main app. The Ultimate Ears BOOM beta app will not be updated on a regular basis, so after experimenting with new features, you may want to revert to the main app to receive the best possible experience.

The beta app doesn’t support Alexa's Alarm feature, but the current alarm feature available in the main app will still work. The beta app will also disable tap to talk integrations with Siri or Google Assistant (if you have those configured). You can restore all these features by uninstalling the beta app and reinstalling the main app.

As a beta tester you can provide us with invaluable feedback on new features. To provide us with feedback or report bugs, please email us at beta@ultimateears.com


Enjoy the beta, we can’t wait to hear your feedback!
