Xiaomi Launched Mi Wi-Fi Speaker with Voice Control 

Xiaomi has announced Mi Wi-Fi Speaker that can play music from cloud-based sources and Internet radio. The Mi Home Theater has a Surround subwoofer, Soundbar, and two wireless rear speakers. It has support for HDMI input for TVs, projectors, and monitors and can also play several video formats. It also has Dolby and DTS and is prepared PatchWall artificial intelligence that was first presented with the Mi Box 3c and 3s smart TV boxes last week. 

Xiaomi is not new to making audio devices. They have a lot of speakers and their Piston earphone line is doing well. Though, very few people know they also make wireless internet radios/speakers.
Earlier this year Xiaomi introduced internet radio with touch controls on the top and a cute little red switch at the top right corner. To use it, we had to pair it to our phone via the Mi Home App before receiving access to online stations. After which we could choose to use the red button to switch stations or keep using our phone.

The Xiaomi Mi Wi-Fi Speaker has the 4-speaker layout with two 2.5-inch subwoofers for extra bass, and two '20-core' tweeters, along with vented bass-duct technology. It is powered by an Amlogc 8726M3 Cortex A9 processor with connectivity via Wi-Fi 802.11ac and Bluetooth v4.1.

However, the speaker has its disadvantages. It doesn’t have a built-in battery, so we to have to plug it into a wall outlet or a power bank anytime we want to use it. We also couldn’t use it like a regular speaker. The company released a new internet speaker that resolves almost all of the problems above and does a lot more.

Xiaomi has ironed out some of the matters from their other internet-connected speaker. Now, if there is no internet access we can listen to songs we have stored on it as it has 8GB of built-in storage, or plug a flash drive into its USB 2.0 port or even connect it to our phone or PC via the auxiliary audio input.

The speaker can also function as an alarm clock and will wake you up to a preset song like the Mi Alarm Clock. One thing they have failed to do is put a battery in it. So the only way we can power it up is via a wall socket with the associated power cord. It supports Hi-Fi 24bit/192kHz audio and has a frequency range of 60-25kHz. It also supports DLNA for compatible devices.
