Google Speaker Groups

In my previous house I was able to connect my Soundbar 500 to a Google Speaker Group. This made the product worthwhile. In my new house I can't reconnect the speaker to a Google Speaker Group. 

I will return it if I can't do this. Please advise how I can connect it or when I will be able to.

Re: Google Speaker Groups

Hello Sullivpr, 

 

Thanks for posting and welcome to the community forums. 

 

It is very strange that you were able to add the speaker to a Google speaker group. I say this as this is not a feature of our speakers. This is because as the Google Assistant is available for integration with non-Google devices, like Bose products; some Google Assistant features that are supported with Google devices are unsupported with non-Google devices. The following Google Assistant features are not available on Google Assistant-enabled Bose products:

  • Phone calls
  • Chromecast functionality (i.e. "Hey Google, play on [Bose speaker]")
  • Setting a Bose speaker as a default audio device for a Google speaker
  • Creating Google speaker groups that include Bose speakers
  • Continued conversation
  • Sleep timers (i.e. "Hey Google, stop playing music after 30 minutes")
  • Moving music from one speaker to another
  • Play everywhere
  • Setting presets
  • Playing presets
  • Controlling home theater devices (i.e. changing inputs or channels)
  • Switching to or from the Bluetooth® source on your product
  • Broadcast / intercom feature
  • The Google Play music service
  • The YouTube Music service
  • The Amazon Music service

I hope this helps to explain things, do let me know if you have any questions.
