It’s taken a while, but Sonos has finally released the Google Assistant for their smart speakers (Sonos One and Sonos Beam for those of you playing at home) in Australia.
Sonos has published a post on its Australian blog with some of the ways Google Assistant will enhance your Sonos experience. No big surprises there – you can ask the Assistant to play or pause music, adjust the volume and lots more – anything you can do on Google Home, Home Mini or Home Max should work with these Sonos devices.
Sonos users can now switch from Alexa to Google Assistant via the Sonos app, and hopefully stop their devices answering every time someone says “Alexa” on the TV. If you find you miss Amazon’s voice assistant, you can switch it back. It’s good to have the choice.
We’re big fans of Sonos hardware here at Ausdroid, and it’s good to see them finally deliver on the promise of bringing Google Assistant to their smart speakers.
