Setting up your Birde Mobile App
In order to play video or download new seeds, you need to install our app and create a Birde account. Search Birde in your phones app store or click a link below
Once app download is complete, begin the registration process or sign-in with your existing account. You will then be prompted to create or join a family account.
How to connect your Birde
Birde requires a 2.4Ghz Wi-Fi connection, if your router is dual-band (i.e. has a 2.4GHz and 5GHz connection), ensure your phone is connected to the 2.4GHz network
Open the birde App then select "Devices" tap "Pair Speaker Console", then follow the prompts in your app to pair your Birde console.
How to download new Seeds
If you purchased and have received Seeds from the Birde shop you will need to download the content to your Birde before you can play it.
Turn your Birde on and check that it is connected to Wi-Fi. To do this open your app and ensure your Birde is shown under Currently Active in the Devices page
Tap the new seed against the Birde, a notification will be sent to your app telling you there is new content available
Open your app and accept the download and your Birde will begin to download the Seed pack (the speed will depend on your Wi-Fi connection and the size of the content Seed pack you're downloading).
Your content will now be listed in your app. Once that download process is completed, your music, audio books or video will play when the seed is tapped.
Tip! When you buy new content, make sure you checkout using the same email address you used to set up your Birde app. This will allow all content to be added to your account immediately and downloaded to your Birde. So when seeds arrive in the mail, they will be able to be played right away.
How to get Birde on your TV
Please check our list of supported devices to check if your Smart TV or streaming dongle is supported.
