SoundTouch App Feature Requests & Enhancements

I posted these requests/suggestions on the "old" site beginning of December and I'm not sure if they are lost in the bowls of so many posts. So I'd like to reopen this here so they do not get forgotten.

 

Bose SoundTouch future features/enhancements:

 

  • AUX input sync to all speakers (same as bluetooth)
  • Stream from SoundBar 300 to all SoundTouch devices
  • Separate treble and bass sliders for all devices (or even better, an EQ) I'd like more control over these features as the HW can handle more than it currently is able to produce
  • Possibility to add more bass than just “0” and "-4 to +4" on the SoundBar 300 & Sub system (need more bass)
  • Bring back the Recent list and add a favorite list
  • Add the presets to the sidebar as well and make them more prominent
  • Possibility to add more than just 6 presets
  • Volume control must be better than it is, currently cumbersome, must be quick and easy especially when playing on all devices.
  • The app has a lag in performance (changing volume, playing on all devices when changing a track, etc.)
  • App & Devices drop connection and then reconnect (this is NOT my wifi or my Internet connection) I have tried and tested this in detail. So please look into this.
  • Performance and reliability enhancements, App startup is slow, enhance this
  • Better and faster overview of the devices, I currently have 7 and it is very cumbersome to scroll through them one-by-one. 
  • Give the user (us) more customization possibilities, thumbnail size, sorting, startup page, possibility to change the apps color scheme (black, grey, white etc.), possibility to adjust the size of the left column (Desktop & Tablet versions), add, sort and remove items from the sidebar
  • Add Apple Music
  • Alarm clock & sleep functions
  • Stereo paring for the SoundTouch 20 and 30 units

 

These are not in order of importance but just some ideas for improvement. Thanks for looking into this and maybe some feedback at some stage.

Re: SoundTouch App Feature Requests & Enhancements

I think they need to add a feature so that you can turn up the volume of the virtually invisible 300 speakers without having to turn the soundtouch 300 up as well. Also I think that bose should implement dolby digital plus into their next update

"Volume control must be better than it is, currently cumbersome, must be quick and easy especially when playing on all devices."

Don't know if people are aware that you can now control independent -and- grouped speakers with the physical volume buttons on Apple/Android devices (one of my favorite new features after update 14.x)

This works virtually everywhere within the app (even in Settings!).

Re: SoundTouch App Feature Requests & Enhancements

Ethos you are wrong. I have spoke to the guys at bose and you cannot turn the volume of the virtually invisible speakers up . Once this feature is added I will purchase the virtually invisible speakers

Re: SoundTouch App Feature Requests & Enhancements

Bigdanny007, 

 

I was not talking about the ability to increase the output of Virtually Invisible speakers connected to a SoundTouch 300, but the overall -volume- of any SoundTouch speaker when used for music.

 

Sorry for any confusion.

Re: SoundTouch App Feature Requests & Enhancements

'Agree' with all of these requests + get Amazon Prime music working in the UK please. It's been months since this was reportedly being worked on with Amazon....
