Make Your Google Home Smart Speaker Portable With LOFT Battery Base

Ninety7 intros portable battery cases for the Google Home, Amazon Echo Dot

Google set to introduce their second smart speaker before Microsoft releases their first

Say hello to LOFT - basically a Google Home bottom which attaches to the speaker using magnets to add battery power.

The Dox is already the second battery base for the Amazon Echo line from the company but Loft is the first for Google Home.

Auburn QB Sean White dismissed after arrest
He played in 18 total games between his freshman and sophomore campaigns, completing 261 of his 351 attempts (61.5 percent). White missed the first two games of the season as part of an undisclosed suspension.

Now, Ninety7 aims to bestow the same portable capabilities to the Google Home. Say their respective wake words, and they'll act as music streamers, smart home controllers or personal assistants. Apple also has its own smart home speaker, the HomePod, which sells for $349 starting in December. It can offer up to 8 hours of usage on a single charge. The Loft is estimated to get eight hours of battery life; and since Google's product is created to be a speaker, this whole thing makes a bit more sense, as it could let you take the Home into your backyard while you're grilling, or whatever it is people do in backyards. It has 4 LEDs on the front to show how much battery is still left and a premium metal perforated sleeve that should keep the same look you're used to with Google Home without hindering the sound's quality. You can now roam around your house with Google Home or any other place with Wi-Fi in range.

Well, here's one more October surprise (possibly) ruined: Droid Life also reports that Google is set to release a smaller, cheaper version of its Google Home smart speaker. The LOFT can be pre-ordered right now for $39.95; its standard pricing is $49.95. Both need to be plugged in, however, so you typically need multiple units if you want to talk to your digital assistant from anywhere in a large home. If yes, then will you be interested in buying LOFT for it?
