LG has just announced a new set of Wi-Fi-enabled speakers aimed at competing with Sonos for a spot in your home. In total, the company is introducing three new speakers (one of which is its first battery powered offering) as part of its Music Flow series which can be controlled from Android devices.
LG will show the devices off in full at CES in January, but it did give a quick rundown on the features you can expect from the speakers:
Each LG Music Flow Wi-Fi device can be used independently or connected to one another device wirelessly, using Advanced Wireless Network and Dual Band Wi-Fi (2.4/5GHz) technology to deliver a seamless audio experience. Unlike other Bluetooth speakers, streaming to a Music Flow Wi-Fi Series speaker from a smartphone continues uninterrupted when receiving a call. And if home libraries aren't enough, users can stream music from service providers such as Spotify, Deezer, Napster, and TuneIn.
Additionally, users will have the option to make song requests and set alarms through the LINE messaging app, which will basically work by sending commands to the speakers.
Lastly, the speakers also sport a feature called Auto Music Play which will (you guessed it) automatically start playing music when your phone comes within one foot of a connected speaker.
As mentioned above, LG will be showing all of this off at CES, so be sure to tune into our show coverage when it starts on January 6th.
