Bose has presented a premium portable Bose speaker that stands out for including Google Home and Amazon Alexa, among other functions.
The smart speaker market seems to be expanding. If at first, it seemed to be dominated by Google with its Google Home and Amazon with its Echo, we are increasingly seeing more alternatives.
These alternatives are not far from the Google and Amazon models, because most continue to use the same system for the voice assistant. This is the case with the new Bose portable speaker, which takes the best of Google Home and Alexa to improve it in other aspects.
The new Bose speaker is portable and has Google Assistant
Do you want a premium speaker, which is also portable? With a good battery? Don’t you decide between Google Assistant or Alexa? Well, it seems that Bose has thought about it, with its new smart speaker.
This device is a cylinder that reminds us of Google Home and Amazon Echo, but it comes with improvements. It is designed to be a portable speaker, so it has an integrated handle and a battery that offers up to 12 hours of musical duration. It also has USB C for charging and physical buttons to increase and decrease the volume or stop and continue the music.
The Bose speaker can boast features by having both Google Assistant and Alexa integrated, but it also has Airplay 2 to stream music with Apple devices, as well as support for Spotify Connect. The speaker works by Bluetooth, but it also has Wi-Fi. Of course, it is also compatible with the Bose application itself.
The Bose speaker will not be cheap, something that did not surprise us either, being a company focused on offering the highest quality. It will go on sale next September 19 at a price of $ 350. At this time we do not know what price it will end up having in Europe, but it would not be surprising if it ended up between 350 and 400 euros.
