The FCC filing is for a Sonos speaker that has integrated voice control:
The EUT is 802.11 a/b/g/n (HT20) Client Device. Product model S13 is a high-performance all-in-one wireless smart speaker and part of Sonos’ home sound system. S13 adds integrated voice control functionality with far field microphones. Moreover, the device will support multiple voice platforms and music services, allowing customers to effortlessly control their music on Sonos.
The only included picture shows the controls for the speaker suggesting that there is a button for the mic which is strange — you would expect it to have always listening capabilities such as the Google Home speaker. It may still have these capabilities but it does make you wonder.
On the other hand, imagine a speaker that you could use with any voice assistant you choose (assuming it had always listening capabilities) that provided a high end audio experience. Sonos are not revealing any more than they already have but experts remain hopeful that they will announce it next week at CEDIA 2017.
I’ll take one. Anyone else?
