The Bose Community Forum was launched at a time when robust online support was not available for Bose customers. Over the past several years we have added new online service channels that provide a more interactive and complete digital experience. Additionally, we have enhanced the My Bose Account capabilities to deliver a more personalized and self-service experience. As a result, Bose has made the decision to close Community Forum for Consumer electronics products on September 30th. The Bose Pro portion of the Community will still operate as usual.
Please visit our support homepage to experience one of our many other digital service channels or simply use your Community log-in credentials to sign in to your My Bose Account to view your orders and view support options.
Thank you to all who have contributed and benefited from interacting in our Community. We look forward to continuing to serve you online.
I ordered mine today. Thank you for your information on the update. I am curious how it works with the app? Can you control the audio level via the app when using Bluetooth? I can’t wait to hear it in my studio. Thank you everyone.

Thank you for joining the Bose Portable PA Community. Welcome.
I ordered mine today.
Thank you for your information on the update.
Please see S1 Pro Firmware Update
I am curious how it works with the app? Can you control the audio level via the app when using Bluetooth?
Yes - you can control the volume of the Bluetooth audio (but not the volume anything physically connected to the S1 Pro.)
I can’t wait to hear it in my studio. Thank you everyone.

Welcome Gary and congratulations on your purchase - you're gonna love your Bose S1 Pro!
To answer your question: yes, you can control the volume on the S1 Pro from your phone when connected with Bluetooth. So when you are having a party your sound system is the S1 Pro and whatever music you have on your phone or whatever you stream. Works brilliantly and you are in control. Hope you enjoy the fantastic sound and versatility of your S1 Pro as much as I am enjoying mine. Without a doubt it is one of my most prized possessions and one of the best purchases I've ever made!

Thank you Chris and Richard! I felt like it was a stupid question. Just excited to see how the app controls the speaker.
I appreciate both of you taking the time to respond. I'm using mine in a different way as I'm building an internet radio station and needed great audio with Dual XLR In and Bluetooth as the sources will be different. And now I can take down the 16-year-old Bose outdoor speakers when I'm in the backyard. They did survive 16 seasons, far longer than the 5 projected when I originally purchased.
Love that Bose quality.
Thanks again. May we all get through this horrible time quickly.
