Bose Music App Update – June 8th 2021

On June 8th 2021, a new Bose Music App update will be available through the Apple App Store and Google Play Store to customers who have auto-updates enabled. The update will roll out in phases and you may not receive the update until Thursday, June 10th depending on your platform and region.


Android users will have to wait until their device becomes part of the roll out. You may need to restart your device to update an app. If you have any difficulty, see here.


iOS customers that wish to have the update immediately can go to the app stores and download manually. If you have any difficulty, see here. Customers downloading for the first time will get the new app.


Version Information:

  • iOS: 4.5.4
  • Android:  4.5.4

Release Notes

  • Connecting accessory speakers to your soundbar? We made the instructions more clear and simple.


  • We added the ability to manage your marketing communications from Bose. See the article here.
  • Fixed an issue where the app crashed upon initial setup of a new smart speaker before the Voice Assistant (VPA) setup screen.
  • Fixed bugs and did some general cleaning up under the hood.


  • We made it easier to add the Google Assistant to your speakers. Just link your Bose Music account to your Google account during setup and you’re good to go.


  • Resolved an issue where you would be taken back to the main settings screen after attempting to add an accessory speaker and the app can’t find it. 

Compatible OS versions  


  • Android: 7.0 and up 
  • iOS: 12 and up

Re: Bose Music App Update – June 8th 2021

Until you release an update that includes switching devices at the touch of a button (like you had in the previous iteration of this product and then ditched) I really couldn't care less. This product is unusable in its current state, hence why I returned mine a long time ago and purchased from a different brand. 


The sales of this product must be incredibly poor.

Re: Bose Music App Update – June 8th 2021

I will never understand why you offer so much indifference to the customers. You just don't care.

The firmware is old and full of bugs. The software is almost useless. You expect us to buy your products?

You don't even imagine how much tou loose untill you hear us talking about Bose products. Someday you will understand.
