Bose Reveals Home Speaker 300 and Supports Google Assistant
Just about two weeks ago, we were celebrating the arrival of Google Assistant on the Sonos One and Beam speakers. Now, the voice assistant is making its way to several Bose speakers as well including the latest Home Speaker 300.
Announced yesterday, the Home Speaker 300 is the smallest smart speaker Bose currently offers weighing in at just two pounds – but it's certainly not the weakest. The company stressed its “powerful bass and true 360-degree sound” similar to its larger predecessor, the Home Speaker 500 which was revealed last August. One key feature that the Home Speaker 300 lacks though, in comparison to the 500, is the LCD that displays album artwork while music is playing.
Besides the LCD screen, Bose kept many of the same features in the Home Speaker 300. The new model is capable of connecting to Bose’s other smart speakers and soundbars for multi-room listening. It also supports AirPlay 2 and can act as a standard Bluetooth speaker. Users will find the same kind of playback controls on the top as well as several preset buttons for accessing playlists or internet radio stations.
