While smart speakers are not mandatory in your smart home, they add fun to it. They complete the luxurious experience of your smart home. Smart speakers allow you to control your smart home devices using your voice. But aside from that, they are multi-functional devices that enable you to do other cool things such as playing music, checking the weather, recording your shopping list, making calls, and many other exciting activities.
When comparing different smart speakers currently available in the market, differences mostly come down to sound quality, price, and compatibility with your chosen smart hub. Amazon, Google, Apple, and Sonos produce the most popular smart speakers you can buy today. They are high quality, reliable speakers that proved themselves in the market.
