  • BBC Has Created A New Audio Drama For Google Home And Amazon Echo

At IFA, we saw upcoming portable speakers with Google Assistant built-in, but what if I already bought a Google Home and don't feel the need to buy another speaker? "Apart from listening to music, home and echo speakers also finds its application to deliver the information about the weather forecasting, sports, news and much more", says Mike Levin, co-founder at CIRP.

For those wondering how LOFT attaches to the Google Home, it attaches to the magnetic base system on the smart speaker.

Hardware manufacturer and peripheral maker Ninety7 has unveiled two new additions to its range of battery packs with the launch of the LOFT for Google Home and DOX for Amazon Echo devices. The powerful lithium-ion rechargeable battery provides up to 8 unplugged hours of use.

Google Home is a wonderful little speaker with Google Assistant, but it's tied to an outlet, so you can't carry it around your home as you get your work done without having to unplug, replug, reboot, and re-connect whatever you were listening to. Not anymore. Snap off your Google Home base and add the metallic LOFT instead and voila! you won't have to leave your Google Home behind as you move from room to room inside your house. The introductory price of the Ninenty7 LOFT is also lower at $39.95 from the $49.95 retail price. The carbon color pre-orders will ship around mid-October while the snow and copper will ship later in the month.

LOFT for Google Home is essentially a third-party metal Google Home base, being held in place by magnets like the regular Home bases and charging with the same Google Home power adapter. Apple also has its own smart home speaker, the HomePod, which sells for $349 starting in December. Share your thoughts in the comments section below.
