Hi @Flip McVicker,
Thank you for the post.
I can assure we passed the feedback along to add a custom URL to development as a feature request.
If you have any other ideas, let us know.
How about just backing out the downgrade, do some testing and re-release when the issues are sorted.
So Bose, why remove a feature that's working and people are using? Why can't you add TuneIn without removing Internet Radio? I've now lost my favorite sports station because it's not on TuneIn.
I'd strongly suggest not removing features to keep your users happy!
You want suggestions?
Seems to me the most important thing for Bose to do is to give stuff real-world testing before forcing their users into major changes. Don’t assume you know what will happen - actually check it out. Oh, and if you screw up, consider admitting it, being open and honest as a company. You’d be surprised how well that can work.
In Bose’s case, maybe very surprised, since it isn’t something they have tried ...
Bose, you may want to pay attention to the competition.
Please add the ability to add Internet Radio stations by a custom URL. Sonos includes this.
Using the Sonos App for Mac or PC:
Got the same problem, main reason for buying Bose was the internet radio.
Had 6 stations, none of them available on Tunein.
There was an option to use tunein, but the stations I wanted were on internet.
Found a app that had 2, now got to connect via Bluetooth to listen
we want a solution like sonos. Because it's more simple and no need to have another phone, computer and use bluetooth
So we are waiting for the function of add a custom URL soundtouch ....
and BE SURE we can save the custom URL to the six preset buttons !
