Following in the footsteps of Sonos, Bose has recently announced an update to select speakers and soundbars that will bring the Google Assistant to life and make your sound system smarter than ever.
Owners of the Bose Home Speaker 500, Soundbar 700, and Soundbar 500 should see the addition of the Google Assistant with the latest update to the Bose Music app. Once installed, your speaker or soundbar will now give you the choice of Google or Alexa as your preferred assistant which puts these devices in a very exclusive, dual-assistant class alongside the recently updated Sonos One and Beam speakers.
