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.
Thanks for reaching out.
So I can provide you with the most accurate information, what product do you own? Please use this link to help you in identifying your product model.
Thanks for confirming that Keith!
You should be able to turn off your radio with Alexa, I would love to explore this with you.
What exact commands are you asking your Home Speaker 500 when attempting to turn off the radio?
Have you tried "Alexa Stop"?
Do let us know, we would love to get this resolved.
Thanks for trying this.
Would you be able to let me know which radio stations you have tried this with? I want to see if I can replicate the issue.
Ok, could you try using the phrase "Alexa pause" instead and let me know the outcome?
That does seem to work but is different from all the other devices we use. Is this the only Bose in the world that does this?!!!!! Thanks for your help so far.
Sorry but I’ve persisted with this and it’s still not working properly. I’ve just had to unplug the speaker to get it to switch from radio to Spotify. The command to play music from Spotify just ended with a red light flashing. Have you any solutions? Under normal circumstances, despite having bought 7 Bose items over the years and being very happy with them, I would return the speaker to the shop and cut my losses, but obviously this is not possible at the present time due to the Coronavirus restrictions. Saying Pause instead of stop, as with every other device, is not satisfactory.
