As we previously reported, the rumors have come true. Sonos announced Sonos Voice Control yesterday.
Sonos Voice Control ab 1. Juni!
US customers can look forward to “Hey Sonos” starting June 1st. Sonos Voice Control will be available in France later this year.
Whats up with Germany? Well, unfortunately we get nothing. In 2022, Sonos Voice Control will not be available in Germany. However, Sonos would like to expand this service, but other countries will follow accordingly.
Sonos Voice Control is available for all Sonos speakers. But as I have reported, it is mainly about music control. Commands like “Hey Sonos turn the volume up X” are no problem.
The smart assistant works with Sonos Radio, Apple Music, Amazon Music, Deezer and Pandora. Other services will follow later. In the US, Giancarlo Esposito will be the voice of Sonos. Sonos would like to expand this option over time.
As I mentioned before, I personally don’t think it’s good. Why an assistant with limited capacity. How do you find that? Already have Sonos devices?
