Anker’s new robot vacuum has Alexa and Google Assistant
The RoboVac 30C and Soundcore Flare S+ both have support for voice assistants
Anker made a name for itself by creating high-quality power banks, headphones, and mobile accessories at acceptable prices. Now it’s doubling down on home gadgets as well.
This week, the China-based manufacturer unveiled a new smart robot vacuum and an improved smart speaker at Berlin’s IFA 2018 -- a consumer electronics trade show.
But the S+ is the first Flare speaker to feature Alexa -- and it’s packed with all of the features that made the Flare series stand out. Marketed as a gadget that helps you “party smarter”, the speaker has a glowing ring of psychedelic colors at the bottom, creating a halo effect in the dark. It’s also waterproof in case you spill your drink on it or drop it in the pool, and serves as a portable charger.
The RoboVac 30C is expected to hit the shelves next month, followed by the Soundcore Flare S+ this holiday season.
