Question on world wide compatibility with the Alexa Skill

Hello,

In the SoundTouch forum there is a list/image showing world wide compatability for Alexa voice contol with current music services.

I was wondering if there is any similar information you can share in relation to the Smart Home systems.

 

Thank you

@Tony_A@Tony_G@Joel_D@Brandon_M, etc 🙂

Hello NeonsNight,

 

Thanks for posting.

 

I can certainly help you out with this. 

 

If you go HERE, there will be a list of supported regions for the Smart Home products.

 

Let us know if you have any other questions.

 

Have a good day!

 

Kind Regards,

Re: Question on world wide compatibility with the Alexa Skill

Thank you for the reply. Do you have a list like the SoundTouch version that shows what music services are supported in the countries that Alexa works with?

Like America can use Deezer, but Japan cannot. For an example I am unsure at the moment if Spotify can be controlled by voice on Home Speakers or not and what can work in different regions. The list provided on the SoundTouch forum is exaclty what I am looking for, I was just hoping you might have one for Home Speakers 🙂

 

Thanks for any help you can provide

Hi there NeonsNight,

 

I don't believe we have a list with compatible sources by country.  I'll take a look and see if there is something we can put on the community.

 

Best,

Hi, I was wondering if an admin has found something in their knowledgebase to share? Do you believe it might be uploaded this week?

Thanks for the help

Hello NeonsNight,

 

Thanks for the question.

 

What region are you located in so we can let you know what services are available?

 

Kind Regards,

Re: Question on world wide compatibility with the Alexa Skill

I'm not only asking for myself as I have close friends and family across the world. Namely in the USA, UK, Australia, Germany, New Zealand, Thailand, and Japan. I hope you can understand why a simple excel table or an image of one like provided for SoundTouch would make things easier for myself and others.

Re: Question on world wide compatibility with the Alexa Skill

Hi NeonsNight,

 

I completely understand now.

 

At this time we do not have a compiled list available for the Bose Music app, Smart Home product line. On the multi-region, Bose websites will list the services available in those specific regions.

 

Once we have a list, we will let the community know. 

 

Kind Regards,

The websites lists music services, yes. But from what I can tell, they do not say what services are controlled by your voice on those websites.

Re: Question on world wide compatibility with the Alexa Skill

Maybe I'm overcomplicating it more than I should. Is it the same as the SoundTouch version below? If you're waiting for Google to be intergrated to give a full update, that's fine. Just let me know either way 🙂
