Sonos Will Add Google Assistant to Select Speakers Next Week

In that report, Sonos mentions that a software update is coming to US -based Sonos One and Sonos Beam speakers which will bring along Google Assistant integration.

In a letter to shareholders dated May 9, 2019, Sonos revealed it will roll out the feature in an update next week, starting with the US market before expanding to others in the next few months. Each Sonos smart speaker, e.g. the Sonos One or Sonos Beam, must be set up to work with only one smart assistant at a time. We've been working on this for quite a while and are thrilled to be rolling it out next week.

"We think giving consumers choice is always the right decision, and we anticipate this philosophy will be adopted in the industry over time", Spence wrote.

In October of 2017, Sonos introduced the One speaker with Alexa built in, but it promised Assistant would be coming the next year. But you won't be able to actually talk to your PLAYBAR using the Google Assistant.

At this point we don't really blame anyone for forgetting about Google Assistant coming to Sonos. Now finally, they said they are ready to roll out the support for Google's digital assistant starting next week, not just for Sonos One but for Beam as well, although it's limited to the United States for now.

Sonos originally planned to integrate Google's voice assistant with its smart speakers some time in 2018.

Currently, the Sonos One costs $199 while the Sonos Beam costs $399. Especially those that are already invested in Sonos, or want a really good sounding smart speaker.
