Google Assistant News Playback

When I tell my Home Speaker 500 "Good Morning" it only gives me the weather and commute info, but then when it's time for the news services I have set to play it says "Sorry news playback isn't supported on this device yet." It also does the same when I just ask "Tell me the news." Is this a functionality that could be added in an update at some point? I understand that this thing has to work differently then a native Google Home device because of the integration needed with the Bose Music app, but adding news playback if possible would be really nice. I enjoy the sound quality on this product a lot more then my previous Google Home, but I miss my morning news!
