B&O will add Google Assistant to its connected speakers this year
Earlier today at CES, Google detailed how its Assistant would be available in more cars, headphones, speakers and other devices in 2018. Bang & Olufsen connected speakers are on that list. The Danish audio company already allows voice control through a Google Home speaker, but later this year the feature will be available directly on some of the company’s gear.
There’s no word on exactly when the update will arrive or what models will be included, but it’s always good to see the latest features being added to existing gear rather than having to buy something new. And that’s all the better when it comes to the likes of B&O where audio gear requires a significant investment more often than not. Of course, Google Assistant is also making its way to speakers from Sonos, JBL, Klipsch and more, so you’ll have a lot of options in the months to come.
