If what your saying is true then that would a really good development and decision form Bose. That also gives Bose a better position compared to other manufacturers.
I doubt if it is correct as they always indicate on the forum that it is technically not possible.
But who knows. Hope your right. My Bose system is great but this will make it even better.
Hi TM! Thank you for your post. I am very happy to hear you are loving your Soundbar 700!
At this current time, there are no plans in place for the merging of the SoundTouch and Bose Music platforms, as opposed to what you may have been informed. I do apologise for any misunderstanding, and we do appreciate that this possibility has been praised by many consumers such as yourself. Based on the architecture of the two different platforms - it is not as simple as it may seem to combine the two together.
However, if you do have any further queries or questions you would like to ask in regards to either the Bose SoundTouch app or the Bose Music app, please let me know. I would be more than happy to provide you with the help you need.

Which new product line do you mean? You think the Homespeaker 500 is comparable to Soundtouch 20/30? I’m not sure...
Thanks for having a look in to the firmware files. That’s quite interesting! Thumbs up for you, @Drigga - thumbs down for Bose... Maybe we can get an open word on this?
I mean Soundtouch and SmartHone product lines. If they would make both lines compatible to each other, people wouldn‘t have to buy the most actual product/product line. They just could expand and that‘s not boses plan.
Thanks a lot for your efforts, @Drigga . That’s, in fact, quite interesting!
So, @Sam_F and other Bose staff, is it you can not combine/merge the product lines? Or are you not willing to? If second, is there an upgrade program for ST-users? Most probably support for Soundtouch will be discontinued - please inform users in time! I would have to consider changing to Homespeaker then, or find some other solution, like Yamaha MusicCast or something.
To be quite honest, I feel a little fooled actually... 😞
