[Update: Back on sale] Grab a refurbished JBL Link 10 portable Assistant speaker for $40 (50% off)

Before I bought my Google Home Mini, I used a portable Bluetooth Jawbone Jambox to play music at home, but when I built my smart home infrastructure, I wanted to use Assistant to control my tunes while still being able to carry them around the house. Back then, Google Homes couldn't connect to external Bluetooth speakers, so I invested in a portable Sony one with Chromecast support so I could still enjoy some music while showering.

Nevertheless, a few truly portable and wireless smart speakers later came out on the market and let you interact with Assistant without worrying about cables.

Anker's Soundcore Model Zero premium Bluetooth speaker is down to $119 ($81 off)

Soundcore is mostly known for its affordable audio products, but the brand also builds the more premium Model Zero speaker, which has very respectable features. Given it's a higher-end product, it cost about $200 when it came out, which could have seemed steep for a brand that's traditionally focused on mid-range accessories. However, thanks to an $81 price drop, the Model Zero is a great option if you're looking for a top-quality portable speaker at a reasonable price.

Ultimate Ears MEGABLAST Bluetooth speaker falls to $150 ($150 off) on Amazon

Logitech's Ultimate Ears brand makes good products, but they can sometimes be overpriced. Case in point: the MEGABLAST launched at $299.99, a lot of money for a Bluetooth speaker that isn't 100% perfect. Over the past months, we've seen several price drops for the MEGABLAST, but Amazon's current price of $150.01 is the best we've seen thus far.

Samsung's Galaxy Home smart speaker — which you forgot about — finally has a release date

The Galaxy Home was announced alongside the Galaxy Note9 back in August of last year, but it's been radio silence for the Bixby smart speaker since then.

Google Assistant phone calls are spreading to more third-party speakers

Feature parity is a huge point of contention in Android, and now in Google Assistant speakers too. Whenever Google announces a new ability for its Home line-up, you can toss a coin and it's pretty much 50-50 whether this will work on Assistant speakers from other brands. For phone calls, the situation has been more dire. Even though Google Home users could make a voice call starting August 2017 (in the US first), those with third-party speakers didn't have that option. But things are getting better.
