Notice

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.


Regards,
Bose Customer Service Team

Control Home Speaker 300 preset options via Alexa

Dear community,

 

Is there a way I can ask Alexa to play one of the preset buttons we have in Home Speaker 300? You know, the top buttons that go from 1 to 6. 
Thanks

Hey there @Lotus81,

 

That's a great question!

 

However, on the Home Speaker 300, Alexa does not have the ability to play the saved presets upon request. I can understand that's a pain for you but there is still the option to command Alexa to play saved music services.  I tend to make use of this as I find my music tastes regularly fluctuating, so asking Alexa to play exactly what I want makes life easier.

 

I hope this answers your query but do let me know if there's any way else I could help.

Hey @Lotus81,

 

That's an idea! In the meantime, you can stay up to date with the latest feature released and firmware updates, by keeping an eye on the Community and our socials.

 

Feel free to drop me a message if you'd like assistance with any other features of your system.
