Sonos To Roll Out Google Assistant Support Next Week

Sonos To Roll Out Google Assistant Support Next Week”

He said "we've been working on this for quite a while and are thrilled to be rolling it out next week".

Currently, both the One and Beam ship with Alexa built-in and will get Google Assistant support next week.

A spokesperson declined to share additional details on the timing Assistant support for legacy Sonos speakers, saying that the company would share more next week, but CEO Patrick Spence suggested that this functionality was definitely coming as well: "If you have a Google Home device, you will be able to use that to control your Sonos", Spence said. Sonos began beta-testing Google Assistant with a subset of its users earlier this year.

Following a months-long delay, Sonos plans to finally add support for Google's voice assistant to its smart speakers next week. Alexa on Sonos devices lacks some of the features that can be enjoyed with other Alexa-enabled speakers, and we're expecting the same with Google Assistant.

The neverending saga regarding Sonos connected speakers and Google Assistant is about to end next week if the American company keeps its most recent promise.

In a letter to shareholders regarding the Q2 results, Sonos stated that this new rollout will provide more options to their customers: "We think giving consumers choice is always the right decision, and we anticipate this philosophy will be adopted in the industry over time".

Having interoperability between different voice assistants could prove very lucrative for the company, especially if customers value flexibility in their smart home products as much as Sonos is clearly hoping. With multi-room audio, Sonos and Google Assistant are going to be a match made in heaven.

Along with the Sonos One getting a boost, the recently released Sonos Beam compact sound bar is also getting this upgrade. Especially those that are already invested in Sonos, or want a really good sounding smart speaker.
