Thanks for posting and reaching out to us today.
This isn't a feature that is currently available on the Home Speaker 500, however I would love to raise this for you as a future feature request.
If any other users would like to see this or any other features added to the Home Speaker 500 then please do let us know.

I have been watching this for a year now that I bought this "smart" speaker but I see that they are just words and "requests for future function" and we do not see the development.
Here is a link to get an idea of why we are so bothered by your delay:
Everyone here says so, it's a "premium" speaker that has no way of choosing which music or music service wakes me up as an alarm tone.
The competition is ahead of them in minor things that generate a lot of unrest in the community and give a bad reputation to their development team.
I hope you understand the community's discomfort: More than a year waiting for this feature!

I will agree with others. This is absolutely a necessary feature. I have been trying to figure out why it don’t work. Why have Google and Alexa app available on device if we can’t have all the features ? This is a software update. But all Of us have to purchase a separate device to have a music alarm. WHY? Bose refuse to do this one thing.

software wise the smart home 500 is not really „smart“ if i may say this.
a radio alarm to be triggered without Alexa/google would be more then nice for this type of speaker. 🙂
@Fortinbras63, thanks for sharing. We have added your name to the list!

Problem is with both Alexa and Google Assistant on all three of my home speakers. Home 300, Home 500 and Portable. Both voice assistants fail when I do the following. They both say unable to set alarm and I should reconnect my service (words to that effect.
”Alexa, wake me up at 6:30 am to (name of music)”
”Hey Google, wake me up at 6:30 am to (name of music)”
The alarm by itself works fine. The music services (Amazon Music and Spotify) by themselves work OK. But they don’t work together. Suggestions?
