Best Portable Smart Speaker: JBL Link 20

The JBL Link 20 has Google Assistant built-in and can stream Pandora and Spotify over WiFi anywhere around your home.  When you’re away from WiFi, it can still function as a regular non-smart Bluetooth speaker.  Sound quality is excellent and the battery can last up to 10 hours.

Runner Up: FABRIQ Riff

The FABRIQ Riff is a small Alexa-enabled speaker that can easily be carried with you. Unfortunately, Alexa is not always listening (she requires a button press) and battery life is somewhat short at 4-5 hours, but the Riff has very good sound quality and can directly stream iHeart Radio and Amazon Music via WiFi.
