Marshall Headphones’ Bluetooth Speakers Will Get Alexa Update
Marshall Headphones recently has announced that its Bluetooth speakers will get support for Amazon’s Alexa personal assistant and voice control system, revealing the Acton II Voice and Stanmore II Voice speakers. The latest voice-activated speakers build upon the previously released Acton and Stanmore.
The new Acton II and Stanmore II Bluetooth speakers will be available with or without Alexa support and are now equipped with a mute button and new indicator LEDs. Support for Google’s voice assistant is also in the works and is planned to be rolled out sometime towards the end of 2018 early 2019. As you may have guessed the Google and Alexa versions will be separate devices, allowing you to choose your assistant before purchase.
Along with the new Alexa speakers, Marshall Headphones also announced an updated version of its portable Kilburn speaker, the aptly named Kilburn II. New on the Kilburn II is separated stereo sound, Bluetooth 5.0 audio, and a metal grate designed to evoke a stage microphone.
