Even with the Govee app you can group your lights and create a 'Scheme' where they'll sync the same color, gradient or will mimic the color of an image but they will not sync with music played from the same device.

Example., I play a song from spotify on an iPhone, I navigate to the Govee app and select both of my lights under their 'grouping' when selecting 'mic' the lights only sync with sounds from the phone not sounds from the actual lights. Audio also will not play to a bluetooth device if you connect to your lights before connecting to your audio source. This may however be on Apple/Android.

As long as you cut it at one of the 3 copper wire points that others have also mentioned, it should be okay to shorten the strip.
You will have to solder if you want to do this.

If you aren't familiar with electricity, soldering, etc. you probably shouldn't attempt this as you can damage the light strips, controller, power supply or worse. I cut and reconnected my lights using a CAT5E cable between them. I wanted to put them under all my cabinets in the kitchen, but they aren't all together. Cut the strip where indicated (3 copper tabs) in the middle. When you cut, ensure you leave enough of the copper on both sides, i.e. as close to the middle as you can. Tin the copper tabs where you just cut, tin your connecting wire on both sides and solder ensuring you connect 12v to 12v, gnd to gnd and so on. I ran cat5e (think power over ethernet) cable through the wall and used an Ethernet jack and plug on both sides for connecting the power. Of note - you cannot connect more segments than originally on the strip. So, if your strip has 16 segments (sections between the copper tabs), you can't run a total of 18 off one connector of the power supply. You might be tempted to do this (as I was) if you run out of strip before you've done all your cabinets. I figured I'd just cut a couple more segments off another strip and solder them together...nope. They wouldn't light. There must be some intelligence in the controller that either knows or can't power past 16. So, you'll need to wire in another power connector once you hit the maximum number of segments.
Yes they can. I only needed about 20 feet of the 32.8 ft set that I bought for my living room window. I cut the excess all one of the points where there are 3 copper wires and the lights work perfectly.

Cut and Extend Sections out with LED Extension Cable Works Great
Yes I bought this kit to cut and see what works. If I destroyed it oh well. I had extra LED extension cables from the basic led color changing sets that are 4 prong connectors.
Cut the 4 prong connectors off. Strip the shielding and the wire. Of course only 3 wires are needed so just strip 3 and not use/ cut off that extra wire sticking out. I had it working with 12ft of wire in between (testing) before hung them up.
The top of the kitchen cabinets is 1 – 16ft strip. I cut the end off at the copper showing section and and measured how much extension wire was needed for the side of the cabinet to the top.
I soldered the end cut off piece Govee LED strip to the wire and then soldered that to the other end that was the cut point.
Now I needed to go over the Kitchen sink. I ran the extension cable throw the top of the blinds and soldered that wire to the Govee LED strip that was cut on the top part of the cabinet on the left side.
I then placed the the remaining length of LED strip (after sections being cut off) on the top of the cabinets and evened out the space from left to right side.
After cleaning the cabinets with a rag and rubbing alcohol where the strips will stick to. I then mounted the LED strips. Once I knew where it placed and cut and spliced the last extension wire and soldered that to the remaining length of LED Govee Strip light.
The Connection to the brain of the unit. I also used extension cable. I cut the OEM 3 prong connector off of the Govee main controller. Stripped back the wires. placed extension cable in the middle for about 4 feet. The OEM Govee connections is a nice plastic push in pin system that clicks on the strip. So I cut that main cord in the middle and basically extended it. Still using the OEM Govee connection at the start of the LED strip.
The second length LED strip is just a solid piece that is underneath the cabinet. It starts from the bottom of the cabinet (right side) of the sink and goes around up under the microwave and above the refrigerator.
Hope this part makes sense. As the LED strip is stuck with the adhesive to bottom on the cabinet. When I got the microwave portion, I did not stick that on with the adhesive. I just tore the paper backing that was peeling from back and when I got to the microwave I left that paper on the LED strip. I curved the LED up the side of the cabinet and used a magnet to make it stick up in the left corner underneath. I used 4 more little magnets that are really strong to go across the Microwave. When the strip was back underneath the cabinet I pulled the paper backing off again and used the adhesive that was on the LED strip.
We just put in a new Microwave. Using Magnets allows you to drop the led strip off of the appliance and it will just hang for cleaning and if you ever needed to switch out microwaves again. This made it easier when I had my old LED strips up that I used the magnets on. Having the LED strip go up the cabinet not attached on the inside wall part leaved it hanging quite a bit to have enough room switching out appliances.
As you can see in the video the top LED strip is the only one that I cut and extended/moved over twice. The bottom of the cabinet on the left side of the sink is the end of one strip, and the bottom right side of the sink is the end of the other strip.
Of course they would tell you not to do this. It will probably void warranty, make them accountable for replacing parts that the consumer messed up, will use a little power amperage from the OEM power supply, and so on.
I have been checking the power supply and at full brightness it only gets a little warm. These are Bright I had LED lights in my whole house for years. These are really bright. When dimming the LED strips the power supply is still cool. All electronics fail faster with heat.

WOAH MY ROOM HAS GAMER LIGHTS!
Honestly I didn’t expect too much when buying these but my expectations were blown clear out of the water with the functionality and quality of these lights. I bought them on a budget expecting some barebones presets and a poorly engineered app at most, but I was very happily proved wrong. The app is kind of amazing for finding customization and presets that fit the tone / lighting of your room and really add to whatever look you’re going for. So for me being a 20 year old wanted cool lighting in my room since I hate the lighting of my can lights. Not only was each LED programmable, you get full range of customization for functions, brightness, and color. My room used to have a really off putting brightness with my can lights but now I have the leds set to a warm off white that slowly winds down in brightness and inevitably turns off when I go to bed. Overall 10/10 for the price, value, and functionality!07/04/2022Verified Purchase
We love Govee!
We just put these lights on our front porch and are so excited to light them up for Halloween! Right now we have them set to Fall colors and they look amazing! We set them up on a timer through our phones. So now they turn on automatically when it is dark and they turn off at 10 pm every night! They light up our whole porch and look beautiful! We plan to sr them to lightning for Halloween..and we love the light show when set to music! Once you go Govee you can’t stop! We have them in our kitchen under the counters, in my sons room, in our backyard by our pool, on or front porch, spotlights on our house, and now a Govee lamp in our living room! They are so much fun! We are always so excited to watch all the different combinations of lights set to seasons and holidays! They are easy to assemble and operate. I highly recommend these lights!06/09/2022Verified Purchase
Amazing light strip! Long, but detailed review.
I’ve found that Govee brand lights are one of the best of the inexpensive LED strip lights on the market. There are more expensive brands (such as Phillips or Lifx), but their prices are outrageously high, and are generally much shorter in length. The expensive brands do not have enough extra features to make either of those shortcomings worth it. Many other similar, less expensive, brands to Govee have less options or more limitations in the lighting effects.
Pros with the strip:
These are bright! They seem brighter than other 5050 lights I have used of the same length (32ft). From what I can tell, this strip does not seem to lose brightness near the ends of the strip, likely due to the larger power supply it connects to. Has a pretty long power cord so it should be easy to get the lights up into high places. The microphone control is on the control box and not within the device that uses the app. While you will probably not use it, the control box can be used to turn on or off the unit. There is a timer option to turn on or off the lights at different times or days. The only limitation to the timer is that it can only turn on or off, you cannot have a timer set to blink one day, solid color the next, and chasing effect another.
Pros with the app:
Lots of customizations in the app to choose from. This strip can set a large number of group addressable color sections all through the strip, as well as a rainbow/chasing mode. The app is pretty easy to navigate, and you will likely find many different color combos that you will love. You can have a setting where the strip changes to volume or music music. I found the app quite nice in ease of use and functionality.
This is not waterproofed, so this strip is a bit delicate. Like other non waterproof strips, it is easy to twist or rip if not careful. The adhesive tape is simple double sided tape, not like a thicker mounting tape. It does hold up ok since it weighs less than the waterproofed kind, but your surface needs to be perfectly clean and flat or the strip may not adhere very well. Due to the nature of all dreamcolor style LEDs like these, you cannot cut this strip or physically connect multiple sets of strips together. This is not a WiFi based strip and instead connects via Bluetooth which means you do not need to have any kind of wifi signal/router near for it to work, but your Bluetooth device usually has a much shorter working range than wifi. This is not a single 32 foot strip, but two separate 16 foot strips that connect to a single control box in the center of them. Not a huge issue, but a single longer strip could make installation options easier. Since I have not found any other Dreamcolor LED’s on the market that come in a single length 32 foot strip, I put this in the neutral section instead of the con. This has multicolors as well as a temperature adjustable white. You can control multiple strips at once, called a scene, but doing it that way has limitations, see below for details. There is no actual physical remote, so you will rely almost completely on the app.
Cons with the strip:
There is no sensitivity adjustment to the microphone so results may vary. The control box and power supply are rather large, and larger than other strip brands that I have seen. While the larger power supply and control box likely keeps the LED’s brighter than other brands, it will be a pretty big eyesore if you can’t hide them, especially if using this as indirect lighting in crown moulding.
Cons with the app:
Having two 16 foot strips separate from each other causes a bit of an issue within the app. Some of the rainbow effects start at the center of the 2 strips and emanate outward to each tip. Currently, there isn’t a setting to have a chasing effect to start at one end and travel to the other strips end. The brightness setting is all inclusive for the most part, meaning any change to brightness effects the entire strip evenly, no matter if a solid color or a rainbow effect. This also means you cannot have ‘blank’ section in your patterns or addressable sections. Would love an option where you could have a moving bright color section that diffuses to a dimmer setting and then completely ‘off’. Some transitions do include a stripwide fade to off setting, but does not work for individual sections at a time. Unfortunately the app does not save the exact color ‘numbers’ for future use, so some options in the pattern customization are hard to reproduce. Would love an option to know the exact ratio of color levels and be able to input the numbers in manually. There is a way to control multiple strips together in a scene, but you lose ALL of the chasing and addressable effects when controlling them in that manner. This means no glowing or rainbow style effects. If you want segmented or ‘chasing’ control when using multiple sets of strips, you need to adjust each strip separately. Getting 2 sets to time right together on chasing effects may be difficult.
Other: I do not have Alexa, a hub, or any other kind of device or software that connects to LED strips so I am unsure if this can work with those systems. You should read the item descriptions a bit carefully, a different but similar looking strip by Govee had a few less group addressable options. I found that it needs to say ‘segmented color control’ or something like that to get the extra addressable options. This particular strip has these options.
All strips on the market have some sort of limitation, and while this brand is no different, the pros very much outweigh the cons. While there is room for improvement, I am extremely happy with my purchase.04/24/2022Verified Purchase
