The new voice-controlled speaker from Sony, called the LF-S50G, gives you easy access to online information and high quality sound in one stylish compact speaker. The 360 degree sound speaker serves as the digital hub for your home. With the Google Assistant built-in it’s like your very own virtual personal assistant to whom you can request a favorite music track to play or ask questions.
Commanding Control by Voice
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, simply bring the speaker to life by saying “Ok Google” and with the help of your assistant, 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 S50G can 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. With a simple voice request you can ask the Google Assistant to play music, podcasts or radio from services like Spotify, Google Play Music, Pandora, TuneIn and iHeartRadio.
