Panasonic is the latest to talk the talk with voice-controlled smart speakers -- and it's walking the walk withrather than voice-control rival .
The blocky and very rectangular Panasonic speaker takes on rivals such as the Google Home ($129 at Crate and Barrel), Amazon Echo ($80 at Amazon.com) and Apple's HomePod ($349 at Walmart). You use it by simply saying "OK Google..." and ordering it to carry out tasks such as listening to music through your streaming service of choice. Integrated services include Spotify, Google Play, TuneIn and Deezer.
