Facebook's smart speakers will be launching by July and are code named Aloha and Fiona, DigiTimes reported Wednesday.
DigiTimes has a spotty record on reporting product launches, and Facebook did not immediately reply to a CNBC request for comment.
But the DigiTimes report comes after other similar reports. In August, Bloomberg said Facebook is working on at least two separate speaker devices with Apple "Siri-style" voice assistants, and at least one has a laptop-like screen that could be released as soon as the spring. Business Insider also reported that Facebook was working on a product called Aloha.
Facebook is also expanding its ambitions in music and video on a grander scale. Facebook agreed to a music deal with Sony earlier this year, and has talked to media buyers about expanding its "Watch" video tab to compete with YouTube.
