Wireless speakers are now everywhere. The past few years we have seen a staggering rise in the movement to “cut the chords” with companies like Apple jumping on the bandwagon. Yes. Nobody can carry their trunk-sized amplifiers with them on vacations.
Even at home, it’s really hard to let go of your bed and attach your phone to the old-fashioned speakers at the other end of your bedroom.
Wireless speakers are no less than a necessity! The convenience and portability most off-the-shelf wireless speakers offer are simply unmatched. However, you need to look at a few things before you buy one.

Most wireless speakers released in previous years are based on Bluetooth technology. But the new Wifi speakers that have hit the market beat the Bluetooth technology for many reasons.
Wifi speakers offer the same convenience and portability as Bluetooth speakers; you can seamlessly connect your phones rather than using some external speakers. Also, they work the same way with streaming applications or music already in your library.
To set things apart, WiFi speakers offer you better sound with a much greater connectivity range. They don’t consume your battery much and above all, they don’t take control over your phone’s audio channel. So you can take as many calls as you want, while the music doesn’t stop! To add all these amazing benefits, WiFi speakers are best suitable for multiroom audio. All speakers can be synchronized and controlled using a single app!
