If you haven’t yet heard about our revolutionary new Via™ AI hearing aids, then before you read any further, check out this real quick. And maybe this too.
If you have heard about it — or if you’re back from that short detour — then this blog is all about the Thrive™ Hearing app, the “control unit” for Via AI hearing aids, and arguably the most robust and useful hearing app ever made.
The Thrive Hearing app is a fully featured, easy-to-use app that puts you in control of your Via AI hearing aids and helps you achieve your physical and cognitive health goals. It provides an array of features designed to enhance your listening experience anywhere you go — and make it easier to enjoy everything you do.
One app — dozens of benefits
Imagine a single smartphone app that helps you track your body and brain health, translate languages as you hear them, control your hearing aids remotely, stream music, phone calls, podcasts and videos straight to your hearing aids, and much more.
You’ve just imagined Thrive.
Now, let’s walk through some the many benefits of the Thrive Hearing app.
Track your body and brain health
Via AI hearing aids are the first hearing aids ever to integrate 3D motion sensors. Because of these sensors, you can track your activity, steps and overall movement (like a FitBit). The sensors can also track the brain health benefits of wearing hearing aids, measuring hours of use, social engagement and time spent actively listening.
At the end of the day, the two scores (body and brain) are combined to give you a Thrive Wellness Score. This score lets you know if you’re meeting your physical and cognitive health goals — which helps ensure you live life to its fullest.
Translate spoken languages
Communicate with people who speak other languages via the easy-to-use translation tool in the Thrive Hearing app. (Requires an internet connection.) The translation is “spoken” directly into the Via hearing aids in near real-time, as well as shows up on the screen of the app.
Tweak sound preferences
Make personalized, real-time adjustments to suit your sound and listening preferences in different situations and environments.
Stream phone calls
Answer your iPhone calls with the touch of a button and stream the entire conversation directly to your hearing aids.
Control your hearing aids through your phone
Using the remote control feature in the Thrive Hearing app, you can change volume and switch memories on your hearing aids right from your smartphone.
Make personalized memories
Create multiple custom memories (think Gym or Work or Church) by using any of the customize options. You can even geotag them. A geotagged memory uses GPS and cellular towers to recognize where you are and automatically adjust your hearing aids to that memory’s settings.
Use as a live microphone
Set your smartphone near the person you want to hear, turn on the microphone feature, and stream their voice directly to your hearing aids for even clearer and more concise listening.
Make adjustments remotely
Request minor adjustments from your hearing care professional, who can then make them remotely so you don’t need to go out of your way to go into their office.
Locate lost or misplaced hearing aids
The Thrive Hearing app can help you find your hearing aids when you’ve forgotten where they are.
