Just say it to play it

Did you know you can control many Bose products with only your voice? True story. In fact, the Google Assistant* is integrated into Bose smart speakers and select noise cancelling headphones — and they make beautiful music together. (And lots more.) If you haven’t used the Google Assistant yet or you’re curious about what it can do, read on.

*The Google Assistant isn’t available in all languages and countries.

What is the Google Assistant?

The Google Assistant is a popular VPA (virtual personal assistant) or voice assistant, as they’re also commonly known. If you have an iPhone or Android mobile phone, you can download it from your app store. The Google Assistant has many useful features, but the simplest way to describe it is:

You talk to it. It talks back. You get stuff done.

Why use the Google Assistant with Bose products?

The main benefit to using the Google Assistant with Bose products is the sound. In other words, your music, your podcasts, your phone calls, and everything else you ask Google to do for you will sound deep, clear, and full of life.

Currently, the Google Assistant works with QC35 II, Headphones 700, Home Speaker 300, Home Speaker 500, Soundbar 500, and Soundbar 700. Learn how to set up the Google Assistant for smart speakers and headphones.

What can I do with the Google Assistant and Bose products?

When you enable the Google Assistant on your Bose speakers and headphones, you’ll quickly discover how they work together to help make so many things easier to do. For example:

Play your music

With the Google Assistant and Bose products, your voice is the ultimate DJ. Imagine you’re making dinner and you’re in the mood for some music. Your Bose Home Speaker 500 is across the room. Without stopping what you’re doing, simply say out loud, “Hey Google, play my cooking playlist on Spotify.” In moments, your playlist will begin to play. It’s that easy. You can listen to your favorite radio stations, podcasts, and more the same way.

Get answers to your questions

If you’ve got questions, the Google Assistant’s got answers. Let’s say you’re getting dressed in the morning and it looks cloudy outside. Your Bose Soundbar 700 is nearby. Simply say out loud, “Hey Google, what’s the weather?” The Google Assistant will read back to you the latest forecast. Use it to find out the latest news, get last night’s sports scores, get directions, do calculations and translations, and so much more.

Manage your day

Getting help to get through your day is only a few words away. For example, you’re wearing your Bose Headphones 700 while you work. You suddenly remember it’s your brother’s birthday and you want to call him tonight. Just press the VPA button and say, “Hey Google, remind me to call Scott at 8 PM.” It works for anyone in your phone’s contact list, or any business listed in Google Maps, too. Of course, you can also use the Google Assistant to place the call for you: “Hey Google, call Scott!” You can also schedule events on your calendar, make dinner reservations, create shopping lists, and lots more.
