Re: Alexa Skill in the UK

Does the Soundtouch app now work across all compatible Bose devices - SA5, Soundtouch 30, SA4's etc with Amazon Echo in the UK?

Re: Alexa Skill in the UK

Does that include giving alexa the ability to switch sources on the soundbar 130 ?

Hi ds1664,

 

Thanks for the question.  No, this new skill doesn't include that, as it's not currently possible to change sources via the SoundTouch app.

 

If you have any more questions, please let us know.

 

Best,

Brandon

Re: Alexa Skill in the UK

Hi, I had the skill working fine (in UK); however, it suddenly stopped working a couple of weeks ago. I’ve tried to re-enable and link but no good. I miss it!

Re: Alexa Skill in the UK

Hi StephenLong,

 

Thanks for the post, and I'm sorry to hear about the issues you've been having.

 

If you look in the Alexa app on your mobile device, do your SoundTouch systems appear?

 

Aside from the Alexa commands, do your SoundTouch systems operate correctly?  

 

Let us know so we can get this resolved for you.

 

Best Regards,
