Bose music app and SoundTouch

I bought a Bose Soundbar 500 with built in Alexa. 
I already have a SoundTouch 20 and 3 SoundTouch 10s around the home and bought the Soundbar for the tv in lounge and wanted to link all speakers to play music round the home. 

I cannot get the ST10/20 speakers to link to the Soundbar at all. 

Are the ST speakers not compatible with the Bose music app?. The Bose music app talks about controlling music on all smart speakers but I can’t seem to make this work. 

help! 
Is this possible ? 
how do I do it? 

thanks

Re: Bose music app and SoundTouch

Bose currently have two ranges of wireless speakers.  The Soundtouch range only work with the SoundTouch app and other SoundTouch speakers.  The smart speaker range is the new range and is compatible with other Bose Smart speakers.

 

As far as I've heard, they reached the end of what they could do with SoundTouch, so to add new features they had to start fresh.  There may be a way in future to link them together through airplay, but that's still to arrive on the SoundTouch systems
