Portable Home Speaker and SoundTouch

I bought the SoundTouch 200 a year ago with the expectations of expanding with more speakers.  I am in need of a portable speaker and am close to purchasing the Sonos Move for the reasons below:

 - Bose seems to have abandoned the SoundTouch platform

 - Connectivity for both the speaker and the app is flaky and unreliable, especially with SiriusXM

 - Cannot group a portable home speaker and a SoundTouch -  I want the portable home at the pool or deck and have the SoundTouch in the garage playing the same thing

 - Multiple apps

 

That said, I would love to get a Bose, but the limitations above are hard to overlook.  Are there any reports of the platforms merging, and, potentially the apps?

Hi @Jim38,

 

Thanks for reaching out. 

 

It will not be possible to pair the Bose Portable Home Speaker to all 3 of your SoundTouch products, but you can initiate a Bluetooth connection to a single product to make a pair. 

 

This is the Bose SimpleSync feature which is available with your SoundTouch 10 and 20 (if this is a SoundTouch 20 III). You can view our other compatible products here. To pair these, this will be within the Bose Music app, you can find instruction here.

Feel more. Do more. Be more.
