Home Speaker 500 Alexa skills / commands

Hi, 

Is there an Alexa command to make the home speaker 500 play a preset (in my case preset internet radio stations, selected via tunein)?

I have seen commands for the soundbars, but they don't appear to work for the home speaker 500...

I would also very much appreciate a list of implemented Alexa skills, rather than the few suggested 'Try this' in the documentation...

Hi PVerga and T-Ray,

 

Thanks for the questions, and welcome to the community!

 

Playing presets via Alexa on the Home Speaker 500 is not currently supported.  As of right now, this is only available for SoundTouch systems in the US.

 

If you have any other questions, please let us know.

 

Best Regards,

Brandon - Community Support

Having a voice assistant, but finally I have to walk to the speaker to press buttons. I totally do not understand why bose does not make it works. This totally fail my expectation to your so call "smart speaker".

Re: Home Speaker 500 Alexa skills / commands

I’m having the same issue with my Home Speaker 300. Asking Alexa to pay a preset seems quite simple but unfortunately not the case.  I too would be interested in knowing all the commands.

 

i finally figured out how to get Alexa to change the Input to TV on my soundbar 700. It was a fluke though.  I was ready to give up on Alexa and Bose.
