Bang & Olufsen’s Beoplay A9 gets a worthy upgrade

The new version now includes Google Assistant.

Probably one of the most recognizable speakers from the company, Bang & Olufsen’s Beoplay A9 gets a refresh with new updated features while maintaining the signature look and feel. Originally launched in 2012, the Beoplay A9’s wireless speaker design means there are no wires to clutter your setup, merging it with your everyday furniture.

The new Beoplay A9 now supports Google Assistant, meaning that you can ask various questions or if you have connected devices, use it for other commands. It also has Active Room Compensation that optimizes sound based on your current room set up so you’d always hear the best sound output.

The speakers are powered by two full range drivers located at its back, enabling it to deliver sound on a louder scale without compromising on quality. It also has support for AIrPlay 2 and Chromecast so you can stream music from your device to the Beoplay A9 easily.

The Beoplay A9 will be available in white with oak legs, black with black walnut legs, a bronze tone special edition, and a brass tone special edition. If you don’t prefer those colors, you can also customize your own look with various textile covers and different wooden legs. The speaker is set to be released, though local pricing is still not available.
