New 'Bose Music' app

Will the new Bose Music app be relevant to us ST300 owners? Will it replace the Soundtouch app that we use now?

Hello DPLINES

 

Thanks for writing in!

 

The SoundTouch 300 will continue to use the SoundTouch application, and the new Bose Music app is going to be used for the new Smart Speakers that are releasing this fall.  There are currently no plans to integrate the two line of speakers. 

 

Warm Regards,

Re: New 'Bose Music' app

Wow, an amazing statement. No plans at all. So explain to me if I have Bose ST at home and Smart Home wun work together. Will you expand or buy everything new again and get let down by your product road map. I can't believe this.

Yikes. Separate systems? Not one, unified system like Sonos? I'm... absolutely speechless.

 

Who thought that was a good idea?

All your Soundtouch systems and devices will continue to work as they do now.

Re: New 'Bose Music' app

Yes, but this makes it sound like they’re effectively ending the development of the SoundTouch line and creating a new separate system, no?

I guess if we actually get AirPlay 2, the systems will be able to work in tandem, but still — the decision to not streamline their offerings like Sonos seems like a colossal misstep, imo.

Re: New 'Bose Music' app

I am very annoyed with this new development from Bose. I have 4 SoundTouch products I don’t understand why they are not integrating all products... I was about to buy a lifestyle 650 but this make me rethink since it seems that no new SoundTouch products will be developed.

Re: New 'Bose Music' app

Why!?!? This is a terrible mistake!!! Are you going to stop developing new SoundTouch products?

Re: New 'Bose Music' app

If they are stop developing the Soundtouch Line, it would be a good idea to turn the soundtouch App Open Source and to give the community access to the software running on the Soundtouch Devices. I am pretty sure the community could fix many things and even add some new features to the devices. Bose might not sell new devices, but afaik, Soundtouch Users might think twice if they have to replace their (expensive) material by new equipment, if they stick with a brand the feel betrayed from... it would be a good opportunity to create some positive brand awareness by building a community that supports it...
