With integrated wireless connectivity and voice control, the luxe silver Bose Home Speaker 500 isn't your typical wireless speaker. Equipped with Wi-Fi and an 8-microphone array, the Home Speaker 500 connects to your home's wireless network and allows you to play music, check the weather and traffic, hear sports scores, and more. Using voice control technology powered by Alexa or the Google Assistant, the built-in microphones allow the speaker to pick up your voice from any direction in the room, even while music is playing. You can also stream directly to the speaker via Bluetooth from your compatible device, or from legacy devices with the 1/8" input. The Home Speaker 500 can be wirelessly connected to other compatible Bose speakers for multi-room audio.
