Sonos is rolling out the Google Assistant onto its Sonos One and Sonos Beam smart speakers next week.
The functionality will launch in the US initially, “with more markets to come over the next few months.”
“This feature will truly elevate the customer experience and marks the first time that consumers will be able to buy a single smart speaker and get to choose which voice assistant they want to use. We think giving consumers choice is always the right decision, and we anticipate this philosophy will be adopted in the industry over time,” he said. Both the One and Sonos Beam ship out of the box with built-in support for Amazon’s Alexa.
