Sonos is reportedly planning to unveil new smart speakers that are powered by Amazon’s Alexa voice-activated assistant, according to new rumours.
“Voice control works by your voice-enabled Sonos Product ‘listening’ for a specific wake word. Please note that not all Sonos Products are voice-enabled.” reads the private policy update.
In the U.S., Sonos speakers can be controlled by Amazon’s voice-enabled speakers like the Echo. The above statement leads us to expect that Sonos’ speakers could eventually be controlled via their own voice-enabled AI. It’s worth noting that Amazon’s Alexa voice-activated assistant isn’t officially available in Canada.
