Overview of the Eko App

Eko devices provide the most clinical value when connected with the Eko App. Downloading the Eko App and connecting the Eko device with Bluetooth is required to complete the setup of the device.

There are specific features, including wireless listening, recording, and sharing reports, that require the Eko App. The app is also required to send heart sound data from the Eko device to the app.

The Eko App is available on iOS and Android mobile devices. You use it to:

  • Check for signs of heart disease.

  • Listen wirelessly using the Bluetooth-enabled device of your choice.

  • Record, play back, annotate, and save stethoscope sounds and ECG (with the CORE 500™ or DUO™).

  • Export PDF reports that can be shared with colleagues or uploaded to compatible electronic health record (EHR) systems.


What’s included

The app includes:

  • A phonocardiogram (PCG) tracing visualization.

  • An ECG tracing visualization for the CORE 500™ and DUO™.

  • Eko AI analysis (currently only available in the U.S.).

  • Wireless auscultation with Bluetooth headphones.

  • Secure storage of recordings.

You can use the Listen screen to first auscultate, and then choose to record what you hear or start a guided, 4-point cardiac exam.

A flexible way for taking recordings for a range of body sounds. You can customize settings for whether or not the recording includes AI analysis (currently only available in the U.S.) or starts automatically. Doesn't include position placement guidance.


A guided 4-point cardiac assessment with automatic recording, AI analysis (currently only available in the U.S. only), and position placement guidance.


The Eko device must be able to connect through Bluetooth. The Eko App requires both a Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connection on your mobile device to use the features on the Listen screen, such as taking a recording or starting a cardiac exam. If there’s not a Wi-Fi connection, try using a mobile hotspot.
