Re: Is the Soundtouch product range being phase out?

yes, it's a ridiculous amount of time and the speaker is rendered useless by the updates.

An honest answer from Bose please, is the Soundtouch product range now obsolete or being phased out?

 

Upgrades over the last couple of years have gradually made the DLNA compatability almost nonexistant, and the latest down grade now means that only State funded or minor radio stations are available.

 

This being the case potential customers should be warned, so they can make an evaluation on the functionallity thats left, especially with online purchases and as people start buying for Christmas.

Hello paudux,

 

Thank you for the question.

 

The SoundTouch product line will absolutely be supported for the foreseeable future,

 

We will continue to provide updates and also have Airplay 2 coming to SoundTouch systems that have Bluetooth sometime in 2019.

 

I wish I had more information to share with you, but when we have updates, we will let the community know. 

 

Warm Regards,

Thank-you Joel

 

I'm not in the US so Airplay is irrelevant (some people use Apple products but Android is more popular), what about the things we use like iHeart radio, Internet radio and music streaming without having to have a computer running (I'm using a computer less and less these days).

Thank you for confirming this.

However please confirm why the support page for Soundtouch 300 for several countries says - 2018 suggesting that Soundtouch 300 would not be sold in 2019, I hope that is not the case as we intend to get another one to complete our setup.

Also, we will continue to make improves and add features to the SoundTouch line for the foreseeable future, and if you have SoundTouch products in your household, they will benefit from these updates.
