Bang & Olufsen Beosound speakers get smarter

Beosound 1 and Beosound 2 speakers getting Google Assistant.

Bang & Olufsen is making their Beosound 1 and BeoSound 2 speakers smarter. The company is releasing new, updated, versions of the awesome-looking speakers that feature Google Assistant.

We enjoyed having the Beosound 1 around very much. It makes us happy that both speakers are receiving updates to make them smarter.

Initially released in 2016, the Beosound 1 and 2 have a cool tapering, cylindrical design. The speakers already support a range of wireless streaming options. You are able to get music via Chromecast, AirPlay 2, and Spotify Connect.

The Beosound 1 is designed to be portable and features a built-in rechargeable battery, while the Beosound 2 is heftier and needs to be plugged in but produces a lush sound.

In addition to Google Assistant being baked-in, the Beosound 1 also gets a new charging dock to make it even more portable.

Price and availability

The new Google Assistant-loaded versions will be available from September. Prices are £1,250 and £1,650 for the Beosound 1 and Beosound 2, respectively.
