If you are looking for more than your otherwise simple Bluetooth speaker or the one that floats in your pool, multi-room smart speakers are your thing. However, these need not be in multiple rooms if you don’t want them. You could just buy one of them and enjoy the premium quality audio in the room of your choice. But if you are one of those audiophiles who can’t do without the excellence of a high-quality audio system in every room of your house, you can always upgrade and get more of these. That’s what makes them worth a buy for a perfect smart home setup.

Now, once you decide to grab a multi-room smart speaker, how do you decide which one to buy?

That totally depends on the type of streaming you want to employ. For example, Apple fans may prefer AirPlay 2 whereas Google fans might just want to stick to Chromecast compatibility. But obviously, you also need subscriptions on Spotify, Amazon Music, etc. to make sure you get the most out of the wireless speaker experience across your home. And, just to let you know, Bluetooth connectivity is always a backup in most of these speakers.

Coming down to the choices we have for you, it was a tough call to narrow down the best multi-room smart speaker. But, we did try our best in sticking to some of the coolest designs out there. Because let’s face it – minimalism in smart home decor is a must!
