Standouts double as smart assistants, phones and chargers, and have compact and unusual shapes.

New China-made speakers can do a lot aside from playing sounds. Releases that work as FM radios, clocks and handsfree phones are increasing in supply. These stream music and receive calls from mobile devices through Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. Pairing range goes beyond 10m. A few models also use NFC.

Speakers that double as smart voice-controlled hubs, gadget chargers and plant pots are on the rise. A number of products integrate Amazon’s Alexa assistant that listens to voice commands for getting audio, video and news,and ordering food from online platforms. Gadget-charging speakers are power banks or wireless docks while models doubling as planters adopt self-watering technology and colorful LEDs.
