Bose updates its expensive QC35 II headphones with Alexa support, lots of improvements
If you've bought Bose's QC35 II headphones, then you're probably aware that the company announced a partnership with Amazon's Alexa functionality back in May. If not, here is how this partnership will improve your headphones starting this week.

As the title says, the most important change is the addition of Amazon Alexa support, which is compatible with both iOS and Android devices. Also, the update will fix a security issue that could allow an Android phone to connect via Bluetooth without user action. You can find the rest of the improvements below:

  • Stability improvements to Bose multi-point which allows you to maintain Bluetooth connections with two devices simultaneously;
  • Performance and stability improvements to Bose Music Share which allows you to connect and share music playback between two Bose headphones;
  • Fixes an issue that could require a power-cycle after using the auxiliary-input cable;
  • Fixes an issue that could cause certain Voice Prompts to play multiple times;
  • Improvements to the way the headsets, where supported, volume syncs with a mobile device‚Äôs volume;
  • Other bug fixes to increase stability and improve performance.

If the Bose QC35 II headphones that you bought don't have the Amazon Alexa logo on the box, you will be able to install the update via the Bose connect app or by simply connecting your headset to a computer via USB.
