Bose has released a new portable speaker system. The Portable Home Speaker model works with several virtual assistants and provides music for the whole day.
This portable speaker supports not only Bluetooth, but also Wi-Fi. Via Bluetooth, it can be connected to a smartphone, tablet or other gadget, like any other acoustics. But with Wi-Fi connected, the Portable Home Speaker model turns into a real helper. With a voice command, the user can activate the Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa. With their help, you can turn on playlists, podcasts, find out news and weather forecasts, and much more. Also, a smart speaker through AirPlay 2 can play tracks from Apple devices.
