It’s here, the day long promised to Sonos users by Google and Sonos alike, official support for the Google Assistant. Users with a Sonos One or Sonos Beam will have direct access to the Google Assistant and all other Sonos products can be controlled from a Google Assistant-enabled device, such as a phone, smart speaker, or Smart Display.
To enabled on your compatible device open the Sonos app and select Voice Services, from there select the Assistant. Once enabled the devices work just like a typical Google Assistant device answer queries, controlling media and accessing routines and more.
At launch it doesn’t support Voice match, which is a significant shortfall for Multi user households. It also doesn’t support calling and interpreter mode, future updates will apparently bring these features.
It’s a US-only launch for now. Sonos advises a July Australian launch for the feature though, so we won’t be waiting too long. Other regions will probably follow a similar timeframe.
