Converse is our mode for sharing a Pilot earbud with guests and groups. We originally architected the system to serve as many users as possible by allowing the host to sync multiple people together from different phones. Since then, we simplified the process to join a conversation by removing some of the registration and setup steps when sharing with a partner. When sharing the secondary Pilot earbud, the pairing process will be quicker for the guest to enter a conversation with the host.
Additionally, while in Converse you can access a settings page in the top right corner which will provide access to various options, including:
Lastly, we’ve heard your feedback regarding the one-phone Pilot earbud sharing solution. Our original engineering design allowed two Pilot earbuds to be shared for conversations from one phone, but we moved to the two-phone solution because it offered more flexibility to add larger groups, provided transcripts per person to ensure accuracy, and improved speech clarity and translation because it required less bluetooth bandwidth. Long story short, we changed our architecture and chipset supplier for these added benefits, but reverting back to the one-phone solution is going to require further engineering work, since this new chipset wasn’t designed for that feature. We’re still working on it, but if you need to speak with support about another solution, please contact them here: https://support.waverlylabs.com/hc/en-us/requests/new
