OK, dumb question for the day: why do these Audeo B90 Direct aids need a phone app?
I’ve been wearing the Phonak Audeo B-Direct aids for a year now, and have never needed to install an app on my Samsung Galaxy9 cell phone.
I answer the phone by pressing a button on my LEFT aid (only ONE aid can stream calls to ONE ear); I can increase the volume on the call by using my cell phone OR the volume button on my aids. When my phone rings, it instantly streams to my left ear the minute I engage; hangs up the same way. If I dial out, the call immediately streams as soon as I dial the number.
I also have two sets of TV streamers: one is hooked up to my laptop, the other to my home TV. They stream stereophonically to both ears (which I LOVE!).
So what benefit is the phone app? Am I missing some key functionality? I’m not sure my Audeo B-Direct aids even have a phone app.
