Last year Bose launched the QC35 II headphones where one of the headphone’s defining features was the fact that it came with Google Assistant built into it. For those who care about comfort, style, sound quality, and being able to easily access their digital assistants, the QC35 IIs were it.
However if you’re not really a Google Assistant user, you might be interested to learn that Bose has since brought about support for Alexa onto the headphones. This means that in addition to Google Assistant, users can now choose to interact with Alexa instead if that’s what they prefer and if they’re already used to Alexa.
The good news is that it won’t require you to buy a new set of headphones. The support for Alexa will come in the form of an update where all users have to do is launch their Bose Connect app and update it, after which the option to use Alexa will appear. After that they will also need to pair the headphones with the Alexa app, but once that is done, it should be good to go.
The Bose QC35 IIs are available for purchase via Bose’s website where they are priced at $350. They feature wireless connectivity and active noise-cancelling with an over-ear design.
