Thanks for posting and welcome to the Bose Community! I would love to answer any questions you may have on your Portable Home Speaker.
So that I can provide you with the correct information, can you please confirm the region you are located in?
I look forward to hearing back from you with the answer to this.

Thank you for confirming your location.
At this time, Google Assistant is not currently available in your region of New Zealand. However, you can keep up to date with any future updates regarding voice assistant availability through our social pages and the Bose Community.
Please let me know if you have any further questions I could answer.
I use google assistant fine on my phone in my region. (Australia setting) for NZ.
I probably won’t keep up to date via social pages because I don’t have time tor that stuff.
I just want it to work like like it says it does on the box.
