THE Smart Speaker


The new Sonos Move is angling for the title of best portable speaker on the market by offering all the top options in one portable 6.6-lb. package. Topping the list: It doubles as a hands-free smart assistant (compatible with Google or Alexa), and its built-in Bluetooth connection picks up where Wi-Fi leaves off to deliver high-quality sound for a full 10 hours, when fully charged.

The Move is also weather- and shock-resistant, charges wirelessly within its own sleek little charging ring and, of course, connects to other Sonos speakers. And the winner is.

These are the best uses for your Bluetooth speakers.
