Phone call on Bose Home Speaker 450

Just bought a new Bose home speaker 450. Trying to understand how do I make a regular phone call that can stream from my phone to the speaker? I also want to chat on Whatsapp/Facebook and be able to use this speaker for calling option. Is there no streaming on this device? Even my SoundLink mini II has this feature so hard to believe this model doesn't have it.

Re: Phone call on Bose Home Speaker 450

Hi MahaMantra,

Sorry to hear about the trouble you're having.

 

With the Home Speaker 450 you aren't able to make a phone call or stream a call to the speaker because it doesn't have a Headset Protocol or Hands Free protocol to make the calls with.

 

The microphones are used for the Voice Assistants built into the speaker to allow it to pick up your voice whilst playing music. 

 

I do hope this has answered your question.
