Hi hasan.5281,

 

Thanks for posting and joining the community!

 

The Smart Home speakers, like the Home Speaker 500, sadly do not currently support voice assistants in your region yet. We are actively working to expand the regions that do have support for the voice assistants but I do not have any information to share on any updates at this time.

 

You can find the full list of which voice assistants are supported in which regions HERE.

 

I hope this helps.

This product is not worth of 399$ if smart functionalities are disabled.. I request bose to please enable these functionalities in Qatar because all smart devices of bose are sold here in Qatar.. Headphones, SoundBars,Earbuds Home devices.. But still smart functionalities are not activated..

You can configure the voice assistant with VPN app

Re: Bose Home Speaker 500 voice assistant not working in Qatar

Cant use google assistant with vpn.. only alexa is configured.. but why bose can't give support to Qatar.. when sony and JBL has already given access of alexa and google assistant on there smart devices.. if bose can't give so its useless to use it's high price tag products... Why bose even selling its smart products when it can't give access to these functionalities in country's..

Re: Bose Home Speaker 500 voice assistant not working in Qatar

I totally agree. Voice assistants are available in Luxembourg too, but Bose hasn’t bothered to make them available. Waste of money and amounts to deception. The warning about availability in certain regions is inadequate since most people would infer that it applies to areas where these services are not provided by Google and Apple. Appalling.
