Sonos Gets Google
Love the brilliant sound experience you get from a Sonos speaker? Well, now you can get Google Assistant (as well as Alexa, once available in Singapore) on the Sonos Move, Sonos One and Sonos Beam. As the first to bring multiple voice assistants to the same sound system, Sonos lets you decide who you want to answer your questions. You can start a song, queue a TV show, check the weather or control your smart home, all on your Sonos – even choose which assistant you want for each individual speaker. With the Google Assistant on the Beam in the living room and Alexa on the Sonos One in the kitchen, you can ask “Hey Google, play dinner music” or ask “Alexa, what’s playing?” Plus, they make a great gift this holiday season!
Special offer: From 3 to 29 December, save $40 off a Sonos One (usual price, $329) – visit Challenger, Harvey Norman or trysonos.sg.
