Re: Soundbar Google Home support

Hi,

 

Can you pls let us know the Google Assistant VPA support is a software update or hardware update?

For example, if I buy the soundbar 700 right now, is there any chance to get Google Assistant support by updating software by wifi connection?

 

Thanks.

Not sure I'd mark this answer as :"resolving" the question.  This kind of ambuiguios response is only a resolution as far as Bose's communication strategy is concerned, not the feature request as being asked for by the community. 

 

Resolution, from the community point of view, would be "Yes/No; as of version XXX Google Home is now/not supported".

I'm also waiting on Google Assistant support for the Soundbar 700 series, specifically, 750, before I purchase.

Hi Tony,

 

Thanks for your info.

Can you please also explain a little details?

Will it be a new version of soundbar like 750? Or just software update?

Does 2019 spring means before end of Apr?

 

Can you please provide any link that we can check the latest post?

Hi Minyu,

 

Thanks for writing in!  

 

This feature will be released with an update and there will be no need for further purchases or accessories.  As far as a specific time, we do not have an ETA aside from what was posted earlier.  When we have more information available, we will be sure to provide an update.  We just wanted to let everyone know we have not forgotten about your requests for this and that we've been listening.  

 

Warm Regards,

Tony A

I assume that's a northern hemisphere Spring? ie, March through May?

Hi PercyBottle,

 

Yes, that would be correct.  We should have an official statement coming soon.  As soon as we do, we'll create a sticky post announcing it.

 

Warm Regards,

Tony A

This is great news Bose, you're back in the game! 🙂 I've just swapped back from the 'soon-to-be-released' LG/Meridian to the Bose Soundbar 700.
