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.
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.
