Sonos is bringing the Google Assistant to its smart speakers the company announced as part of its earnings report Thursday that Assistant support will be rolling out next week.
The company has been beta testing this functionality for months, but now we’re finally learning it is ready to roll out to the Sonos One and Sonos Beam smart speakers. In a quarterly earnings letter to shareholders, CEO Patrick Spence announced Sonos is planning to launch Assistant soon, starting with the US. It will come to “more markets to come over the next few months”
Keep in mind Sonos first revealed the Sonos One speaker would get Assistant in 2017, so this is a long-time coming. We’re told all Sonos customers with the voice-activated speakers will get this functionality. These speakers also feature Amazon Alexa and support for AirPlay 2.
