Can you rename Soundlink Color speaker

I have 2 of these speakers. One in LR and one in BR. Often times, I am listening to music on iPad with the BR speaker, and suddenly it goes silent and I hear the sound on the speaker in the LR.

 

since both speakers have the same name on the Bluetooth panel in the iPad, and both say connected, I am not sure which one to disconnect. 

 

Can I rename these speakers to distinguish them in Bluetooth ?

 

thx. Rick

Hello morrisrh, 

 

Thank you for getting back to me.

 

Apologies, Rick! In that case, the SoundLink Color I does not have the ability to be renamed. I'm truly sorry if this disappoints you.

 

Let me know if you have any further questions.

 

Warm regards,

Charlotte G

Re: Can you rename Soundlink Color speaker

Hello Rick, 

 

Thank you for your post and welcome to the Bose Community. 

 

You can change the name of your SoundLink Color speakers by using the Bose Connect app. To do this, go to Settings > Name > 'Enter your chosen name'

 

Let me know if you have any problems with this. 

 

Warm regards,

Re: Can you rename Soundlink Color speaker

Charlotte, thank you for the reply.

 

(Trying my reply a second time here).

 

My speakers are Soundlink Color I, not Soundlink Color II. I assume this means they are incompatible with Bose Connect, as I cannot see them in the app. Hence, appears I cannot change the name.

 

Is there a firmware update to Soundlink Color I that makes them compatible with Bose Connect ? 

 

Thx Rick
