I have been a Bose customer for about 6 years and have most things (over 20 Bose Devices) I have a reasonable sound touch group with 8 speakers been looking at more speakers (another 4 systems to finish the house) but since the first ST20 I brought (pre bluetooth) to now I have not seen much alteration in the Sound touch functionality. a few years ago they did alter the app and destroy a lot of functionality we did lose a few functions that are now back so a year for no change is pretty normal for bose soundtouch.

I have som sountouch speakers and was testing BSTControl today.
Running the client BSTHome on a windows computer - it almost worked 🙂
The list of speakers are sent to BTS Control and Google Assistans is able to list the speakers.
However BSTHome Connection is all the time:
So I´m not succeeding in sending commands to the speaker from https://bstcontrol.com/Portal
Even though all speakers are listed.....
Any idea of how to solve this would make my day 🙂

Hi. I have a SoundTouch 300 and just purchased a Chromecast Audio. I tried plugging the Chromecast Audio into the soundbar, but couldn't find a jack for it. How'd you plug it in? Thank you.

The best way to do google home integration would be first an integration to
have all connected bose speakers switch input to auxiliary and set base level volume "OK google: link bose", custom google home phase runs a smartthings routine to turn speakers to auxiliar and set volume to preset number. Ideally there would be a command from Google Home saying audio was starting which would automate this process, but easiest method first. Same for music ending to save power of speaker being left on.
Then use google chromecast audio to connect. Need to find out if there is a published delay for the speaker my ear is only so good and would like to see if someone figured out how to calibrate. "Ok google: Play ### on Everywhere" Everywhere being speaker group created.
Voice commands go through the google home and all audio is using google 3.5mm audio and chromecast in tv speaker system for synchronization.
As a plus the bose speakers staying connected together is awful... to the point I don't want to use it when friends are around because it's embarrasing when it connects on and off.
