Bose on Tuesday announced the Home Speaker 300, a tiny new speaker coming in June for $260. The speaker weighs just two pounds and stands at just over six inches tall.

According to Bose, the Home Speaker 300 delivers "powerful bass and true 360-degree sound," offering the same kind of sound experience you'd expect from other Bose speakers. Users can link up the new Home Speaker 300 with their existing Bose speakers for a multi-room listening experience.

In addition to standard Bluetooth support, the Bose Home Speaker 300 also features AirPlay 2, making it simple for iOS users to ping their music to the device.

Bose's new speaker also supports Google Assistant—something that's also rolling out to Home Speaker 500, Soundbar 500, and Soundbar 700. With Google Assistant, users can easily play music, ask for the weather, and more.

All of these speakers also support Amazon Alexa, so it comes down to your preference.

You can preorder the Bose Home Speaker 300 beginning June 4 for $260, with a launch date set for June 20.
