Sonos to release its own voice assistant called Sonos Voice | Report

05 May 2022 1

The market of voice assistants is dominated by three main players: Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa, and Apple's Siri. These are supported by almost all the smart devices but that does not stop device makers from coming up with their own takes. The newest to join the space is Sonos Voice which is reported to get official in the coming weeks.

The alleged Sonos Voice will work only with Sonos' audio products. The voice assistant will become available with a software update that will first debut in the United States. It is reported that the update will arrive on June 1st and eventually expand to other markets where the company sells its products. The assistant will be compatible with all speakers that run Sonos S2 software.

It should be noted that Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa support will continue to be available. The new Sonos Voice assistant will be an additional option for users. They will be able to switch among them with ease, exactly how it works on smartphones and other devices with multiple voice assistants.

The idea behind releasing its own voice assistant is said to “make voice interactions fully private, more personal, and more natural.” Its core functionality will remain the same as other options. It means users will be able to play songs, artists, and playlists using voice commands. It is unknown whether it will support answering general queries as well.

The third-party app support will be limited to Sonos Radio, Apple Music, Deezer, Pandora, and Amazon Music. There are no words on when users can expect Spotify and YouTube Music. The hotword for triggering the assistant will be "Hey Sonos". None of the voice data will be sent to the cloud due to privacy concerns.
