The Bose Community Forum was launched at a time when robust online support was not available for Bose customers. Over the past several years we have added new online service channels that provide a more interactive and complete digital experience. Additionally, we have enhanced the My Bose Account capabilities to deliver a more personalized and self-service experience. As a result, Bose has made the decision to close Community Forum for Consumer electronics products on September 30th. The Bose Pro portion of the Community will still operate as usual.
Please visit our support homepage to experience one of our many other digital service channels or simply use your Community log-in credentials to sign in to your My Bose Account to view your orders and view support options.
Thank you to all who have contributed and benefited from interacting in our Community. We look forward to continuing to serve you online.
Thank you for your post and welcome to the Bose Community.
I am sorry to hear that you are having some problems with Alexa of your Soundbar 700.
Are receiving a particular error code at all? Additionally, could you please confirm which country you are currently located in?
I look forward to your response.

I am from California. Just got my soundbar 700 last 4 days ago. I didn't get any error at all. I have set up successfully for everything (connection to TV...checked, connection to amazon music...checked, connection to bluetooth...checked), even Alexa is working if I ask it to brief the news or weather. However, whenever I ask "Alexa, play a song" or "Alexa, play some music" then it says I need to enable skill for soundbar 700 with Alexa app (which I have tried to go into Alexa app and look for "bose" and "bose soundtouch control" and then enable the skill). But there's a "settings" button with a note on the side saying "account linking required". I then click on that button and try to enter this account I have set up. But then it says "Could not sign you in to your SoudTouch account". Please advice.
Thanks for posting and reaching out to us today. The reason that you aren't able to do this is that the Soundbar 700 doesn't use the Bose SoundTouch Skill as it is not a SoundTouch product. You will just need to use the Skill labeled Bose. You can find the correct skill linked here.
Please let us know if you have any issues with this skill.
Thank you for getting back to us regarding this matter. I am very sorry to hear this persists.
What I would recommend at this stage, is that you contact your regions Bose product support team for further assistance regarding this issue.

There you will find the appropriate contact information and an agent will happily do what they can in order to get you connected and enjoying the Bose Alexa Skill.
