One of the most common questions we receive is one of timing – “when will new feature X be available?”. Our answers are usually frustratingly vague. The bad news is
, that’s likely not going to change too much. But we owe you more of an explanation as to *why* we don’t share detailed delivery timeframes. This might not ease the pain much, but we want to share. It ultimately boils down to three reasons:
So, that’s our thinking. You may not agree with it – that’s totally fair. But this is something we’ve thought through and strongly believe in, and as a result, the answers you’ll hear from us will continue to be very limited in terms of answering the question of “when will this happen?” We hope this helps make clear why that is.

The US has the skill, so the skill exists!
How can you neglect other countries of something you already have. At least give an explanation for the negligence!
I wish I knew about this before I spent a fortune on your devices.
I will not be recommending your products to anyone from now on, I've looked high and low for this skill, but all I keep coming across is angry customers, you now have another one.
Please provide a solution, or even just a valid reason for the UK to go without for such a long time.
Sort it out!
I'm sorry but for months we have had the same fob off and no actual answer that helps.
There is something weird going on, i don't belive that if the skill is avaialble in the USA, it would take long to modify it for the UK or other countires. Surely their IT guys could do it in a few days.....??
My friends all have Sonos and it works perfectly with Alexa and sounds great, if Sonos can do it, why can't Bose!? I'll buy Sonos next time.

I too am disappointed with the lack of Alexa compatibility.
i have recommended that friends buy Sonos for this very reason. The world is much much bigger than the USA.

This is what i have posted in their product page in amazon india
amazon skill are not available in india that is really bose kind of thing they charge so much for their product and their products are treated as premium product and only premium customers can afford it to buy but they dont treat their customers as premium they released their skills in US its feels like racism do they consider other country customers as 2nd grade .They charge so much so they have enough money still they were working on skill more than year it seems that they donot want to spend enough money to hire good developers or enough developers to complete project fast.They can give excuse that it takes lot of time behind development, so take your time release worldwide at the same time to treat yours customer equal i regret that i bought bose soundtouch 300 instead of sonos but i have learned my lesson i will not buy anything more from them in protest for not treating their customers equally, though their speakers are good.I appeal to just boycott this company products in india
Its my personal point of view that they are good in hardware but are very bad when its comes to development of software i mean ill give 1 point out of hundred to them guys are reffering to github to make experimantal bose skill which they can compile and run themselves in 30 to 45 min shame on you Bose

OK - it's now 28 March. I have read your post which actually says absolutely NOTHING about when the BOSE Alexa Skill will be released. Basically it looks like your Release notes update which said that it would be released 28 November 2017 was, how can I put this, optimistic at best.
I have just bought an Amazon Echo to pair with my 2 x SoundTouch 10's only to find that it is, at the moment, useless for this.
So - just what is so different about the USA from say, the UK, that means we can't have this Skill release ? Just how hard can it be ? Just what is holding it up?
Finally, can you perhaps now actually answer the question and tell us WHEN the BOSE Alexa "Skill" will be released to us lucky folks in the UK ?
