Re: Grouping Bose Soundbar 700 with other Google Mini Speakers.

It's not just you, the functionality is very limited. Maybe it'll improve, maybe it won't, Bose won't tell us anything.

Re: Grouping Bose Soundbar 700 with other Google Mini Speakers.

Hello JEBurdett & The.K.Locker,

 

Thanks for posting and welcome to the community!

 

At the moment there is not functionality to group Google speakers together with our SmartHome line, I would be more than happy to pass this information on to the development team for you. 

 

I hope this helps, should you need anything else then please get in touch.

 

Kindest regards,

Zoe C

Would be great if my Bose Portable could be linked to my other Google Groups!

Re: Grouping Bose Soundbar 700 with other Google Mini Speakers.

I was very surprised to find that I can't add my new Bose Portable Home speaker to a Google speaker group! Didn't even expect that. I have a group with 3 Google speakers across my house and now I can't add bose to it. That makes it useless as home speaker.

Re: Grouping Bose Soundbar 700 with other Google Mini Speakers.

I agree, and was surprised to learn that the Bose could not be grouped! I have a JBL 20 and it links, so that lead me to believe that the Bose would function similarly.

Re: Grouping Bose Soundbar 700 with other Google Mini Speakers.

I was very disappointed to find out the Bose sound bar cannot be added to a speaker group in the google home app. This was one of the main reasons I bought it, I hope this gets fixed soon.

Re: Grouping Bose Soundbar 700 with other Google Mini Speakers.

The fact that Bose advertises this speaker Integrated with Google assistant yet you can’t group speakers with Google Home makes The product worthless as far as I’m concerned. They should not be advertising Google assistant if you can’t use one of the main features of having Google home products integrated with your device. There’s a link showing that Google assistant or Sonos is not supported to be able to group Speakers with google home. As a result, I will be returning my Bose home speaker for 450 to Costco.

Group your Google Assistant devices

You can create groups of speakers, Smart Displays, and Smart Clocks so all of your devices play the same audio throughout your house.

This feature doesn't work on Bose or Sonos speakers that have the Google Assistant

Re: Grouping Bose Soundbar 700 with other Google Mini Speakers.

Tried all kind of ways to link the Bose Home Speaker to various Google devices to no avail. Seems we are at Bose’s mercy in this one! Sucks
