Smart Bluetooth speakers are the next big thing and we're here to tell you everything there is to know about them. We'll cover how they work, what features they have, and give you a list of the best ones on the market right now. So if you've been looking for an in-depth resource on Smart Bluetooth Speakers, this is it!

What are smart Bluetooth speakers?

Smart Bluetooth Speakers are devices that use Bluetooth to connect to a smartphone or computer and play audio files. They usually have built-in microphones so they can also be used as a speakerphone. Many of them also include features like voice assistants, touch screens, and even projectors!

To use a Smart Bluetooth Speaker, you first need to connect it to your phone or computer using Bluetooth. Once it's connected, you can play music, make calls, or access other features depending on the speaker. Some speakers have built-in batteries and can be taken with you on the go, while others must be plugged into an outlet.

Smart Bluetooth Speakers

Some Smart Bluetooth Speakers come with voice assistants like Amazon's Echo or Google Home. These assistants can do things like play music, control smart devices in your home, provide information, and more.

If you're looking for a Smart Bluetooth Speaker with a touch screen, the JBL Link 20 is a great option. This speaker has a built-in battery that lasts up to five hours, and it also doubles as a Chromecast Audio receiver. That means you can use it to stream audio from your phone or computer over WiFi.

If you're looking for a Smart Bluetooth Speaker with a projector, the Sony SRS-XB40 is a great option. This speaker has LED lights that pulse along with the beat of the music, and it also includes a built-in.

How smart Bluetooth speakers work

Bluetooth speakers are a great way to add sound to any room in your home. But what makes them smart? In general, there are three things that make a Bluetooth speaker smart: voice control, WiFi connectivity, and assistant integration.

Voice Control: some Bluetooth speakers come with built-in microphones that allow you to control the speaker using your voice. This can be useful for tasks like changing the song or turning the volume up or down. Some of the most popular assistants like Amazon's Echo and Google's Homework with Bluetooth speakers, so you can use voice commands to do things like play music from Spotify or check the weather forecast.

WiFi Connectivity: most Bluetooth speakers also have WiFi connectivity, which allows you to connect them directly to your smartphone's WiFi network. This allows you to take full advantage of all the features that come with a smart speaker, such as an assistant and internet connectivity. It also opens up streaming services like Pandora, iHeartRadio, and TuneIn Radio which don't work on Bluetooth speakers because they require direct access to an internet connection.

Assistant Integration: the last feature we looked for was integration between our chosen assistants and each company's line of Bluetooth speakers: Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa. While neither company has released official numbers on how many devices are compatible with their respective voice control platforms, we did find one way around this issue: multi-room audio through Chromecast Audio or Fire TV Stick. For example, the Google Chromecast Audio allows you to use your voice with compatible speakers.

One of the biggest issues we found was that not every company is interested in making Bluetooth speakers. For example, Bose and Beats both advertise their products as "wireless headphones" instead of portable or mobile devices. This limits what they can do and where they work: for example, neither device will let you switch between audio sources without reconnecting it, which makes them useless if you want a speakerphone alternative on your desk for taking calls while working at home. Finally, there are some compatibility problems specific to older models: many companies have discontinued support for certain phones so newer models won't work with old ones. We recommend checking reviews.
