Yes but it is unnecessary. Its a simple request we are asking. I bought the Alexa so I could ask it to just play music. I bot the dot specifically so I can hear it out of a bose speaker. I select the Soundtouch 10 and have to deal with more tasks. I am using a $20 jam plus I got at bed bath and beyond now and my soundtouch is just sitting there wasted money. Great going bose
Fair point. I don't really use the wired to AUX setup personally. I was just experimenting. I play and control Alexa-sourced Music on ST using the Bose Alexa Smart Home Skill. It gets rid of the BT and cables; 100% wifi.
I use Amazon Music and Pandora primarily. Your mileage may vary. For example, Spotify is not supported.

Thanks for all your posts. I'm a simple guy. I don't have an Alexa. I don't care to get one. All I want is what I thought I was buying many moons ago - smart speakers with WiFi and BlueTooth and an AUX jack.
And I expected the AUX audio input to the smart speakers to be "always on" just like the AUX jack on AC or DC powered speakers have worked since Moby **bleep** was a minnow. How hard can it be?
My 67 year old (apparently addled) brain cannot understand why a fine company like Bose cannot, or will not, make this very simple audio function work.
And apparently Bose does not care. One would think that the fine moderator of this thread could explain this audio engineering anomaly. Or get an official answer telling us to fold up our tents and go home - this simple request will never happen because of reason 1, reason 2, etc etc etc yada yada yada.
