SONOS One officially adds Alexa support in Australia

Multi-room speaker pioneer Sonos, said in October a year ago that it would be supporting Apple's new AirPlay 2 platform, adding that all of its speakers will be able to work with it.

Joining the US, Canada, the United Kingdom and Germany, Australian Sonos One users will now be able to issue Alexa commands and have their speaker perform many common AI-assistant tasks, the notable exception being making phone calls.

Now, it's not just Australians that now have Alexa access, with "music fans in Australia" now joining "those in the US, Canada, UK, and Germany who can ask Amazon Alexa to control their entire Sonos home sound system with full voice support for Amazon Music, Spotify, iHeartRadio, and TuneIn".

From today, Sonos are rolling out an update to the Sonos One that enables Alexa voice control.

From September 2018 Sonos One will be available in red, yellow and green. The company has said that AirPlay 2 will only be compatible with the Sonos One, Sonos Play:5 and the Playbase.

Sonos has said AirPlay 2 requires an bad lot of processing power, which its older speakers simply can't support and is the reason why they won't be able to inherently work with Apple's streaming platform.

"Driven by two Class-D digital amplifiers, one tweeter, and one mid-woofer".

Sonos one the latest addition to the Sonos range is getting a colourful makeover. "The volume also intelligently lowers, or "ducks", when you speak to it so you don't have to shout over the music". Like Google's "Home" speakers, you can talk to them and make your smart devices do more.

The Echo Dot could be the smallest and easiest way to bring Alexa voice commands around the house to a Sonos system.
