$199 Sonos One Supports Alexa, Google Assistant

$199 Sonos One Supports Alexa, Google Assistant”

Sonos as committed to this agnostic approach which allows people to use whatever voice they want.

At launch, Sonos One owners will be able to ask Amazon Alexa to control the speaker in Germany, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

The Sonos One will work with all of the company's other speakers, and support for Google Assistant and Siri is on the way. But as a Sonos, the One can do more. However, if you were to start playing an Apple Music playlist from the Sonos app, you could then use the Sonos One's voice control to change the volume, skip to the next track, and even to query about what's playing.

Sonos in recent years has opened itself up to third party apps and developers, and integrating voice assistants is the next step. At launch, music services like Amazon Music, Pandora, iHeart Radio and more can be controlled through Alexa; Spotify will come "soon" according to a press release.

The Sonos One is priced at $199.99 and is expected to begin shipping on October 24. This update includes the ability to control Sonos speakers from Amazon's Alexa-enabled hardware, though a Sonos representative confirmed to Tom's Guide that Alexa speakers can't play music synchronously with its hardware. The Sonos Play:1 speaker now retails for $199, but we're assuming that price will drop when the Sonos One speaker is released. With the built-in speaker, users can talk with Alexa and listen to music, or Echo Dot can directly connect to speakers through Bluetooth or by using a 3.5mm stereo cable, enabling you to add Alexa to any home entertainment system. Spence explained that Sonos had been experimenting with a number of different retail formats, and that the company may one day just operate show rooms that don't stock any product, but help consumers to experience speakers before they order them online.

It goes without saying that the products will be available via Amazon India. All three are smart speakers with Amazon's Alexa, a smart virtual assistant, powering them.

Basically, the Amazon Alexa Echo speakers in some countries, especially in the U.S. allows the users to make calls between Alexa users. "The voice services that we've been working with, we've been building relationships for years now". This will let you play sound from an iOS device on your Sonos speakers.
