Bose Music App does not detect Soundlink Mini 2

Purchased a Soundlink Mini 2. The bass is way too strong. I want to pair it with the Bose Music App to be able to adjust the sound. Unfortunately, the App does not detect the device. I have already spent 1.5 hours, searched the threads and gone through restarts, resets, attempted WiFi alternate connection, uninstalled/resintalled apps, updated product through Bose website. This is through Pixel 2 Android Phone. 


Unfortunately the mini is not compatible with any app.


The Soundlink Mini II originally came out before the BT speakers had any compatibility (I think it was released around 5 years ago).  Even if you have the newer special edition, it's just a refresh and didn't have any updates apart from the USB-C connection.


Either way, the Bose Music app connects by Wifi.  Soundlink speakers newer than the Mini (colour II, Revolves, Revolve etc) connect via BT to the Bose connect app.
