Re: Sorry, that device is offline (Alexa, spotify, soundbar 700)

I am having exactly the same issue. Voice speaks, but says its offline. Also, says cant pause the must. 

 

Also says that music is streaming on another device. Sorry that device is offline. I checked router - everything is online.

Re: Sorry, that device is offline (Alexa, spotify, soundbar 700)

Bose India support reached out to me and we were able to successully resolve the issue. Thanks to the service officer name Mr. Shobhit. Below are key steps to replicate:

Fyi, this happens when there is an account related problem at Amazon (or) Alexa end.

 

1) Download Alexa app

2) Sign in using the same user credentials that you entered while setting up Alexa on Bose soundbar.

3) Click on the menu (top left corner) indicated as 3 horizontal bars.

4) Select/click on "Skills & Games"

5) Now click on search icon (magnifying glass) and type "Bose".

6) You might find 3 or search results. Click on "Bose (not for soundtouch).

7) Click on "Disable Skill"

😎 Now click on "Enable skill" to enable it back. It might take a few seconds and take you to Bose page. You will need to enter your BOSE user id and password (the same that you've given while registering your soundbar).

9) Now get out of the above page after successfully enabling the skill. You might have to hit the x button on top left.

10) Click on Discover devices. It should say no devices found (I found this step to be redundant. Nevertheless, they made me do it).

11) Ask Alexa to play music and in a few seconds you could be thinking "Voila".

 

Cheers.

I had the same problem for over two weeks I finally realized that I used a different email address to setup the Bose app than I used for the Alexa app it worked when I used the same app for both. Happy Camper

Hi @Zoe_C does this solution work for SoundTouch 300 as well. I'm hearing the same "SoundTouch 300 is offline" message when I ask Alexa (on an echo dot) to "play xyz on SoundTouch 300".
