Small Bluetooth speakers are nothing new, we’ve seen them for years, but smart speakers are something that is new and getting extremely popular. They connect via WiFi and allow you to control the speaker over your WiFi network rather than Bluetooth. This gives you extended range, the ability to still be able to take calls on your phone, and much more. Today we are checking out a small attractive speaker called the Fabriq Riff. You can see where it gets it name from with its cool fabric cover, but beyond looks this speaker works with Amazon Alexa and sounds much better than the Echo dot make it a perfect portable alternative. Let’s jump in and see what it is all about.

The Riff Smart Speaker come is a very unique spherical package. On the front there is a picture of the unit and it lets us know that it is compatible with Amazon Alexa.
Moving around the package three main features are detailed which include Amazon Alexa, multi-room and multi-speaker connectivity, and dual pairing settings.
There is an entire section dedicated to Amazon Alexa giving you suggestions on what to ask, as you can tell Alexa is a major selling point to the riff.
Getting everything out of the retail package we have the Riff Smart Speaker, a quick start guide, and a small tool, which we assume is to factory reset the speaker.
