Using the Bose smart home skill:


With the Bose Skill, Alexa can play music from your SoundTouch systems. Be sure the music services you wish to use have been added to the Alexa app. 


To control music playback:


Ask Alexa to control your SoundTouch system. Be sure to use the name you gave your system in the SoundTouch app. For example, if you named your system “Kitchen”, try these commands:


  • Alexa, play some jazz in the kitchen.
  • Alexa, turn up the volume in the kitchen.
  • Alexa, what’s playing in the kitchen?


***Note: Spotify and Deezer are not supported at this time by the Bose Smart Home skill.***
