Fail. Walkie talkie doesn’t work
My family was gifted the Chips 2.0 and we were stoked to use the walkie talkie feature on a trip to Colorado, but we couldn’t get the original app to work. Not a big deal since it was so great to have for music, but it was still a disappointment.
Fast forward a couple years, the newest version of the app, and some confidence the issue was fixed, and we still couldn’t get the walkie talkie function to work on a trip just a couple of weekends ago.
The other big problem is what the previous reviewer already stated. If there are multiple people within Bluetooth range around with Chips, there is no way of knowing which set is yours when you try to connect them to Bluetooth or the app. There needs to be some way of identifying each set.

Sorry to hear you are having trouble getting the app to work. You may want to call 310-677-0190 to have someone from our support department walk you through setting it up.
Fail. Strike 2.
I was hopeful for this one. I figured by starting from scratch, it would be functional. But no. Observation 1: can’t rename each ODT Chips 2.0, so if more than 1 set is on, there is no way to distinguish one from the other in the app. So I made sure only one at a time was on as I set them up. Was able to create a group of me + wife. Was able to make it work with the PTT button on the phone/app. So far, so good. Tried pressing the right chip speaker, and it never was detected by the app. Without that function, it’s useless.
Using an iPhone X and Xr. Both on iOS 12.1.
I spent an hour in my living room trying to make this work. Unless this thing is easy to set up and use (set up could use some instructions), no skier will use it. DISAPPOINTED.

Walkie talkie no workie
Writing this review before contacting them, which I’ll do tomorrow during business hours.
Bought two sets of chips, paired to two different phones, downloaded and installed the app on each phone, walkie talkie connects to chips fine. Right earpiece does not activate the walkie talkie feature. Both phones/accounts are connected in a “group”. I CAN get the walkie talkie to do something if I push the button on the phone, but it doesn’t seem to pick up anything, or transmit it to the other person. 9/10 annoyed at this point and will be returning both sets of chips if this doesn’t work out, which is too bad because we were about to buy like 10 more sets of them.
