Sony’s New Speaker Brings Google Assistant To Your Pool Party

Sony has announced a new outdoor speaker at IFA 2018 that will bring Google Assistant to your pool parties. The Sony XB501G is about the size of a soccer ball and packs a mean punch, sound-wise, in addition to vibrant lights and strobes to complete the party look. It has Google Assistant onboard so it can do everything you would expect a smart speaker to do.

The XB501G is a bit smaller than some of Sony’s other outdoor speakers and is thus more portable. You can easily take it along with you and set it up on the fly. The built-in handle makes it very easy to carry the speaker with you.

It’s probably the most powerful Google Assistant speaker announced so far, sound-wise, complete with strobe lights to make it feel at home come your next pool party. You don’t have to worry about splashes of water around the speaker as well since it’s rated IP65. If that’s not enough for you, it’s even possible to sync up a pair of these speakers for mono audio.

Sony promises up to 16 hours of battery life for the speaker. It even has a USB Type-C port. The company is going to release the XB501G in October for $299.99.
