Reconnecting a Bluetooth® device that you have already connected

Your product remembers the last several Bluetooth devices it was paired to so that it can quickly and automatically reconnect to them. This is useful if your product connects to a different device when you turn it on, or if you just want to switch to a different device.

Select a Bluetooth device that you previously connected from the Bose app.

When you select the Bluetooth input on your Bose speaker, it tries to auto-select the last connected Bluetooth device. If that device is not available and you've connected other devices, there might be a short delay while it looks for those other devices in order of last connected.

To pick a specific device, open the Bose app, select your Bose speaker, then tap Source > Bluetooth. Here, you can select a Bluetooth device from your speaker memory.

If you are unable to connect a Bluetooth device, try our troubleshooting suggestions.
