App design rework and Spotify Connect for free-tier subscribers

Hey bose,

I have 2 quick questions. Hope they get answered.

1. Are you planning to change the design (GUI) of soundtouch app to match the bose music app? (Or at least some design tweaks especially on iOS) In my opinion the Bose music app is way better.

2. Spotify allows now to stream music from the Spotify app via „Spotify connect“ to 3rd Party music systems even though you are a only a free member. Can you please add this functionality asap? Because right now it doesn’t seem to work...

Thank you!

Hi djbazztek, 

 

Thank you for your post and welcome to the community!

 

At the moment, we do not have any information regarding a rework to the SoundTouch Application. 

 

Spotify connect should work for your SoundTouch products as long as they are connected to the Wifi. 

 

I hope this helps, have a great day!

 

Kindest,

Hello Jessie,

 

thansk for your reply.

 

Too bad you have no information about a design overhaul. 

 

Regarding spotify: Yes spotify connect works, IF you are a PREMIUM member, but it doesn't work for the FREE plan. Do you know what I mean?

Hi Djbazztek, 

 

Thanks for posting and updating us on this. 

 

This won't be something that we can adjust due to this being Spotify's service. However we can pass the suggestion of Spotify Connect to the development team. 

 

Kind Regards,

Re: App design rework and Spotify free connect

Hello Bose team,

 

don't get me wrong but I think you still don't get what I mean. Maybe it's due to my bad English. 

 

Anyways... one more try: Bose needs to provide an update for the SoundTouch Products to work with the latest spotify SDK. Because with the newest SDK it is possible to stream music via the spotify app (spotify connect) to the SoundTouch products even if you only have a free subscription. So it's basically something you can adjust.

 

To support my request maybe this link can help you: https://www.theverge.com/2018/11/7/18071464/spotify-connect-free-tier-ad-supported-premium

 

One would think that the developers have already taken note of this, but safe is safe. 

 

Kind regards
