Black Runner

This week on the SyrupCast, Igor Bonifacic, Rose Behar, and Patrick O’Rourke are joined by MobileSyrup contributor Ted Kritsonis to talk about Google’s Pixel event and all things Sonos.

The team does a deep dive into Google’s recently revealed Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. Among the other announcements at the Google event were Google’s Pixelbook, an updated Daydream View updates, and the Google Home Mini.

Ted, who literally just touched down in Toronto following his trip to New York for Sonos’ recent event, shares his thoughts on the newly announced Sonos One. The device features Amazon Alexa integration with Google Assistant functionality coming soon, making it one of the most versatile speakers out there.
