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.
