Sony has announced the launch of a new 360 degree speaker at this tears IFA, the Sony LF-S50G and it comes with Google Assistant built in.
The new Sony LF-S50G features Bluetooth and NFC and it will come in a choice of two colors, black or white.
You no longer need to pick up and touch your phone, as you can simply speak to ask a question or learn a new fun fact. Want to know what the traffic will be like on your route to work, set an alarm to wake you up in the morning or retrieve the flight booking details for your next trip, then simply bring the speaker to life by saying “Ok Google” and you can open up a world of opportunities. You can also check and update your calendar to manage your upcoming appointments, add to your to-do lists, and get general information about the news and weather forecast to help plan the day ahead.
Not only can it make a seamless connection with more smart speakers in the home for a multi room set-up, the Google Assistant on S50G can also help control by voice lots of different smart devices from compatible platforms including Chromecast built-in, Nest, Philips Hue and IFTTT, letting you easily set the room to the perfect temperature or turn the lights down to suit your mood.
