Thanks for writing in! Sorry to hear about the troubles, but would be happy to help!
Can you first confirm which country you're trying to setup the Soundbar 700? Some countries are not supported yet for Alexa and the new Smart Home speakers and we are continually working with Amazon to get more and more countries access to these features.

Thanks for the info.
Alexa is not yet supported in Malta. If it becomes available, we will notify the Community with a stickied thread.

This is a bit ridiculous indeed. I have just bought the soundbar 700 and not 300 because of the Alexa built-in functionality to find out that it doesn't work in the Netherlands. There is absolutely no indication of this on the Dutch Bose website, advertising instead that once you have the 700 you will be able to benefit from Alexa functionalities...nor a list of the enable countries. Instead we have to roam multiple forum discussions to find out... really not to the standard expected here and a bit hiding the reality here. The worse part in that Alexa works on my bose Noise cancelling headphone...Am I missing something here?

I recently bought the Soundbar 700 and Bass Module 700 and recognize the unclearity regarding Alexa which was stated by CedricNL.
The Dutch Bose website only states the following regarding the Alexa Voice assistent: "Alexa is not available in all languages and countries".
Because there was no indication regarding which countries were in-scope and which are not, (just to make sure) I had a look the Amazon website regarding coverage. Amazon stated: Country: Netherlands, Language: English. English would have been find for the time being.
Only after buying the product, following the install procedure of the product and scanning through the internet, I have to assume (I still haven't been able to find a formal confirmation by Bose so far) the Netherlands are not support yet. Which is of course disappointing.
Can you please confirm if the assumption is correct? If so, can you please point out where an overview can be found of which countries and languages are supported by Bose/Amazon? As Amazon states it does support the Netherlands, even though this is English for now.
