Default Soundbars now ofered with internet?

I notice high-end soundbars now offer internet. Can someone offer an
insight into how that would be worth the extra money, and how used?

Give an example (make and model). Being wireless or having wifi access
does not make the device an IoT. Could be it is an IoT device and maybe
works with Google Home to allow handsfree control of that and other
devices in your home ("Ok Google, play some music on the living room
speaker") .

The product description of they as-yet-to-be-identified probably tells
you why the device is wireless, wifi, or has some Internet connectivity.
They cannot incur draw to a device features by keeping them hidden.

"you can use the following music sources
with the Samsung multiroom app.

- music files stored in your mobile phone,
various music sources, and Internet radio"

Since the firmware file for the thing is 180MB, it must
be running a full OS of some sort in there (a minimal
Linux). Page 30 of the manual, shows a picture of
the user, using their SmartPhone to channel something
to the soundbar. So that it's not limited to just the
HDMI input perhaps (audio over HDMI).

The documentation is pretty thin.

Once "an App drives it", these companies seem to be
absolved from providing any further description.
Like the product you're buying is a "loot box".
