Smart Soundbar 300 : poor microphone sensitivity with Google Assistant
I purchased the Bose Smart Soundbar 300, to replace my Bose Home Speaker and get better sound for my TV, while maintaining the benefits of a connected speaker. However, I find that the sensitivity of the microphone with Google Assistant is much lower than with the Home Speaker. Sometimes I have to repeat "OK Google" several times. And when I'm watching TV, even if the "OK Google" is understood and the soundbar turns down the volume to listen to my voice commands, it doesn't react, as if I hadn't asked for anything. Sometimes I have to shout or turn off the TV to get my commands carried out.
Is there a way to increase the sensitivity of "OK Google"? Is there a way to make the soundbar understand my commands better without shouting or turning off the TV? Is there a feature for the volume to be turned down further when I say a voice command?
As it stands, I'm quite disappointed, I feel like I've lost quality vs. the Home Speaker 500, especially on the voice assistant and the microphone quality.
Thanks in advance for your help,
