Soundbar 700 Getting Alexa to play music from Iphone Music Play List

Having set up my soundbar 700, base 700 and surrounds, is there a way to get Alexa to play a playlist from my iphone music app?

 

Do I need to configure the soundbar or the alexa app on iphone or some combination of both?

Hi LawrenceKing,

 

Thanks for writing in!

 

The only music services you can use with Alexa will be based on what Alexa supports in the region.  I would recommend looking into the Alexa settings and seeing what you can set as a source of music like Spotify or Pandora.  To play locally stored music on a mobile device, you would have to initiate a Bluetooth connection to the new Smart Home speakers.

Ok- Tony A - Community Support- So how do you go about this? On Bose soundbar 700 "To play locally stored music on a mobile device, you would have to initiate a Bluetooth connection to the new Smart Home speakers." Help

Hi Dynyyce,

To initiate a Bluetooth connection, you can use either the Bose universal remote or the Bose Music app.  The LED bar should be pulsing blue during first time setup of Bluetooth and from here, it should appear in your mobile device's Bluetooth list to be selected as wireless speaker.
