Polk Audio introduced the Polk Assist Smart speaker with many features. Polk Assist can be controlled by your voice using Google Assistant. Voice interaction will not only affect music reproduction. Like all “smart” speakers, Polk Assist will also be able to manage various devices such as lights and different types of home appliances.
The features of a Google Chromecast have also been integrated. Users can then start streaming from any compatible application such as Pandora, TuneIn, Google Play Music, YouTube Music, iHeartRadio, and Spotify. Combining other Chromecast speakers you can create multi-room systems with music spread in various rooms of the house. The implementation steps have been simplified to the maximum. Simply download the Google Home app for Android and iOS devices. All phases are guided to quickly reach the end of the configuration.
The technical specifications show the use of a 2.54 cm tweeter and an 8.89 cm woofer. The two-way configuration is controlled by a 40W amplifier. Polk Assist measures 19.05 (A) x 11.94 (L) x 11.94 (P) cm. It will be available in two finishes: Black and Gray. The availability is scheduled for June at a price of $199.99.
