A smart speaker may be the best gift for a new homeowner, and it gets you extra points in their good books too! Smart Speakers are much more than just speakers that let you play music from any of the millions of choices on YouTube as well as any compatible music apps like Spotify for instance. If the new homeowners have any smart gadgets around their place they can sync them to a smart speaker in order to enable voice control. Like controlling a smart thermostat, or smart lights, or a smart coffee machine even.
Even if they do not have smart devices around their homes, smart speakers can do a lot more on their own. They can update you on the weather forecast of the day ahead, the traffic situation before heading out, reading out emails and sending texts as you verbally dictate, and even take calls. Any basic internet search can essentially be done like you would ask any virtual assistant.
