Sonos just announced a compact home theater smart speaker, the Sonos Beam. The cheaper device boasts a smaller footprint than its previous home theater products; the company says Beam is 60 percent smaller than the Playbase. The speaker is available for pre-order starting today. The company’s new home theater product will support Amazon Alexa controls at launch, alongside Airplay 2 connectivity, which will arrive in July. The product will be set up to gain support from other voice assistants in the future, the company says.
