Smart Speaker which can play iTunes music

  KateS 10:02 15 Oct 2018

Hello, I am looking to buy a smart speaker for my home office but I'm finding it really hard to establish which one(s) have the functionality I am after. Basically, I'm looking for something which:

  • Is Portable (doesn't have to be plugged into mains)

  • Enables me to make and receive phone calls to contacts on my phone (so I can use it for conference calls)

  • Enables me to play my own iTunes playlists from my iPhone, as well as things like the BBC iPlayer Radio app and podcasts

  • Has Voice control so I can choose a playlist/adjust volume/skip track without having to touch the unit

The main thing I am struggling with is finding something which plays music from iTunes - which is crucial as I don't use any music streaming services like Amazon Music and Google Play.

Can anyone suggest any devices which do these things? Thanks in advance!
