My family and I live in Florida and we spend a lot of time in our backyard. We only swim in the pool in the summer, and we love listening to music outdoors. If you’re anything like us, you will most likely love a great wireless music experience. It almost feels like we’re on vacation when we have music on outdoors, even after a day of hard work.
Just in time for summer, Ultimate Ears announced new updates for MEGABLAST and BLAST portable speakers to help them get smarter and better over time. Here are some of the reasons I think you’ll love MEGABLAST and BLAST, especially if, like us, you use Spotify.
Voice control on Spotify and more (coming soon): Just ask “Alexa, play my Discover Weekly” or any music from Spotify on MEGABLAST and BLAST. Spotify will soon join other Amazon Alexa supported music services such as Amazon Music, Deezer and TuneIn globally; and Pandora, iHeartRadio and SiriusXM in the U.S. — use your voice to control music from these streaming services over Wi-Fi. On Bluetooth, you can enjoy music from any of your favorite music services.
A better way to listen with Spotify Connect (coming soon): MEGABLAST and BLAST will be the first Ultimate Ears speakers to integrate Spotify Connect. When on Wi-Fi, open the Spotify app on your phone and play music directly to our speakers (under “Devices Available”) without the need to pair through Bluetooth. Music fans can also stream the highest quality sound possible from Spotify. With Spotify Connect, text message or make calls without interrupting the music and save your phone’s battery.
