If you currently own both an Eargo 5 and Eargo 6 system and you’re trying to connect to the app, please first make sure that the hearing devices in your Charger are from the same product (e.g. both Eargo 5s). Eargo devices are marked for their corresponding ear on one side and have the product logo on the opposite side. Both hearing devices need to match one another in order to continue. The mobile app will not let you complete the connection process if you have one Eargo 5 device and one Eargo 6 device inside your Charger.
If you’d like to simultaneously pair and switch between using different Eargo products (e.g. change from using Eargo 5 to Eargo 6) in the app, you must update your app to the latest version available in the Apple App or Google Play stores.
How do I know which app version is currently installed on my mobile device?
From the main control screens, tap the Menu icon in the upper left corner then select ‘Settings’. At the very bottom of the ‘Settings’ screen, the Eargo app version that’s currently installed on your mobile device is shown. If your current app version is 2.1 or earlier, you likely have automatic app updates disabled on your mobile device and will need to update your Eargo app to the latest version available.

What do I do after I update my Eargo app to the latest version?
