After doing some research knowing Alexa was not available for Chile and being a Bose user for some years I decided to get the HS 500, just to find that I got a pricey dumb speaker that sounds great.
By the way the store Bose SME failed to emphasize that if I first didn't update SW on the speaker I would be able to link with the app, it took me a couple of frustrating hours to find this through internet search.
I feel somehow disappointed 🤨😟
Thanks for reaching out and welcome to the Bose Community Forums.
It is great to hear that you are a loyal Bose customer. We are working hard to bring all the features of our Smart Home range to more countries, We thank you for your understanding and patience. In the meantime, I am sorry that you had some issues setting up your speaker.
Are they resolved now, or can I help in any way?

I know alexa doesn't work in Chile, but I need to know a way to connect at least Google assistant, the VPN connection solution demmands I have a router that can stablish a VPN so both the speaker and the phone with the app are on the same network! I've seen 25US$ speakers using google assistant here.
Can you please help with an alternate solution? Or how many months does your IT Dept. figure it will take to have a solution?
Just checking to see if there were any advances regarding Google assistant or Alexa in Chile to finally being able to set up any off the two assistants.
