Sonos Roam: Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, AirPlay 2 and voice assistants in a waterproof case

Sonos is scheduled to launch the Roam portable Wi-Fi and Bluetooth speaker in mid-April . So the rumors circulating about this were confirmed – albeit before the official release.

Unlike the portable Sonos Move speaker , which, frankly, won’t take you far, the Sonos Roam will be much more compact. Its length is about 17 cm, and its mass is in the range of 300-350 g. A big plus for the Roam’s mobility will be the complete water resistance of its case.

Over Wi-Fi, Roam will support all of Sonos’ multi-room features on the S2 platform the company launched last year. Built-in microphones will allow Roam to interact with voice assistants: Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant. In addition, the model will work with AirPlay 2, and two Sonos Roam can be combined into a stereo pair via Wi-Fi.

The Sonos Roam comes with a charging cable. When the built-in battery is fully charged, the Sonos Roam has a battery life of approximately 10 hours. The color options of the novelty are traditional for Sonos: the speaker will be released in black or white.

The first Sonos Roam is expected by April 20, the new product will cost $ 170 in the US, and by adding 50 more, it can be equipped with a docking station for wireless charging.
