Bose Portable Home Speaker: Take Alexa and Google Assistant on the Road

Update 10/10/19: Read our full review of the Bose Home Portable Speaker

Bose announced its $349 Portable Home Speaker, growing its smart speaker selection to three high-quality, voice assistant-enabled audio devices.

The new versatile, battery-powered speaker looks like the next-generation version of the company’s SoundLink Revolve+. It’s cylindrical, solid vase-like shape sports a slim bucket handle, and measures 7.5 inches high, 4 inches in diameter, and weighs 2.3 pounds. Inside are three passive radiators, a high-excursion driver, and a deflector which helps spread audio in all directions.

Bose’s Portable Home Speaker is Bluetooth and Wi-Fi enabled. It comes with both Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa built-in. You can also use AirPlay 2 to play music from Apple devices, or Spotify Connect to listen to tunes from the Spotify app. An update next year will allow two Portable Home Speakers to be paired for stereo sound, but at $349 a pop, that’s an expensive proposition.
