i-box have announced the new Ellipsis smart speaker. Designed to bring all the benefits of an Amazon Alexa enabled product, it also removes the issue of trailing cables spoiling the look of your trendy minimalist kitchens and living areas.
The Ellipsis uses the surface of the wall to reflect the sound and boost bass towards the listener. The result, say the makers, is a smart speaker capable of sonically punching above its diminutive weight.
Voice control is a key feature in today’s tech and you can talk to Amazon Alexa using the i-box Ellipsis. With Alexa, you can ask to play music, hear the news, check weather, control smart home devices, and more. Alexa lives in the cloud, so it’s always getting smarter, adding new capabilities that are automatically delivered to the device. Using Alexa on the i-box Ellipsis is simple and hands-free – just ask, and Alexa instantly responds.
The i-box Ellipsis comes complete with a new, dedicated app. Compatible with Android and iOS, users can download it for free and use it to help with the initial set-up (an Amazon user account is required). The app also enables control of one of the world’s dinkiest ever multi-room speaker systems – you can connect up to eight Ellipsis speakers in one network, distributing music all around the home with minimal impact on floorspace and interior design.
The i-box model also works with the streaming services that smart speaker users are familiar with, including: Amazon Music, Pandora (Date TBC), Spotify, Tunein, iHeart Radio and locally stored music.
