BOSE HOME SPEAKER 500 - Multi-Room Capability
I see the last topic date for Alexa Multi-Room Capability was in December of 2019. We just purchased TEN (10) Bose Home Speaker 500s with the thought that the speakers could be grouped, not just through the Bose App, but also through the Alexa App. We are now discovering that, while Bose announced multi-room capability with Alexa in 2018, to our knowledge, they have not implemented the feature.
This is very disappointing. If you stumble across the 2018 statement, you are led to believe multi-room capability was implemented. However, if you read 2019 customer comments and Bose responses, you see Bose has not implemented the Alexa multi-room feature.
Bose, do we have an update on this matter? When this feature is enabled, will it be delivered through a firmware update or will customers need to buy new speakers to implement Alexa multi-room.
I have been a big Bose fan for three decades. This matter really puts Bose behind the eight ball regarding smart speaker technology in a very competitive smart speaker market. Many smart speaker systems have already implemented this technology.
We are going to return our TEN (10) Bose Home Speaker 500s and wait for this technology to be implemented by Bose. Your response is appreciated.
