Re: iHeart Radio in Canada

Hey all,

 

Thanks for your patience while we looked into this further for you. We can confirm that at this time, iHeartRadio within Canda is not supported on our range of SoundTouch or Bose Smart Home speakers. We do not have any plans to integrate this service, but welcome all of your feedback and interest.

 

In the meantime, you can certainly still play audio from iHeartRadio if you're located within Canda by inputting audio to the speaker via Bluetooth.

 

Please let us know if you have any questions regarding this.

 

Kindest,

Andy B

Re: iHeart Radio in Canada

Once AirPlay 2 is finally here, you should be able to play iHeart Radio straight from your iPhone app and push audio directly to your speakers through Control Center. It makes the integration with Bose basically moot. 

 

Bose is so far behind with integration with music services that circumventing the SoundTouch app is the only way to make this happen.

Indeed, tethering our mobile devices to SoundTouch gear over BlueTooth has always been possible. Adding Airplay brings Wi-Fi to the equation and theoretically better quality audio. Certainly with Airplay there are no system function interruptions like alerts, sounds etc. Ideally the best solution is installing the music service. For some reason Bose continues to offer a very limited choice of music services, or optionally relying on BlueTooth tethering and hopefully soon Airplay.
