Smart speakers have been gaining popularity among consumers and Amazon is the clear leader here. However, the retail giant is followed by Alibaba and Baidu as the second and third major smart speaker brands, according to Canalys. Xiaomi seems to challenge these two home-grown internet giants in China with its smart speaker. Canalys report shows that Xiaomi is currently fifth at the end of third quarter of this year. It reportedly shipped 3.4 million smart speakers during the quarter ending September. Also Read - Amazon Echo Show Review: Loud, smart and unique
