I have 2 Aoundtouch 10 speakers and I was wanting to add another one. However it seems like the Soundtouch has been discontinued and has been replaced by the Bose Home speaker. The stockist that I contacted told me that the Bose Home can't be linked with the Soundtouch speakers. Is this true & what was Bose thinking of when they decided not to allow them to be linked?
Thanks for reaching out!
The SoundTouch speakers and Smart Home speakers use different apps, so they're not directly compatible, however, you can group them using Airplay 2!
This will only work on iOS-based devices as Airplay 2 is not officially supported on Android.
Another solution would be to use SimpleSync to sync a SoundTouch speaker to the Home Speaker via Bluetooth. This method is only compatible with one other speaker.
I hope this helps clear things up!
Thank you for your suggestions. However I don't use Apple products so I can't use the first option. Basically, it's been a disappointment that the Soundtouch users have been forgotten in the development of new Bose products. It makes it difficult for consumers to formulate any sort of brand loyalty .when features such a inconnectivity only lasts with the current product. I'm sorry if my reaction disappoints but that's the impact of not making products compatible
