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.

Bose Soundtouch App on Android (on smartphones) works, but the Android App when opened from a device with a mouse pointer does not register clicks, only on-screen touches.

Detailed description of the issue and steps to reproduce: 

1. Install Bose Soundtouch App from Play Store on Chromebook

2. Log in to existing account

3. Connect all devices successfully

4. Try to change volume with mouse pointer on Chromebook


What environment do you experience the issue in? Within the android app on Chromebook(ChromeOS)


When did you start to experience the issue? Always

Did it work correctly previously? No

-Uninstall , reinstall app, log in and try to change volume using mouse pointer again. 




Re: Soundtouch Android on Chromebook

Hey @bpd489, thanks for posting! 


The SoundTouch app is not compatible with Chromebooks. The desktop version can only be installed on Mac/Windows. The Android/iOS version is intended for mobiles and tablets only. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
