How to use Sonos with Alexa

Sonos allows the user to simply search using their own voice. If I wanted to listen to my trance station on Spotify, all I would have to do is say, “Alexa, Play Spotify”. The system will then ask you which station you would like to listen to. I would say, “Play My Trance Mix”. Then boom, my music would start playing over the speaker. If you already have an Amazon Echo, using the Sonos with Alexa will be very similar.

The Amazon Alexa personal assistant also allows for weather and news updates. It does this without even completely muting your music. The idea of the Sonos is that the music never stops. Alexa does not allow for voice calling over Sonos, but that might be on the horizon according to producers.

Sonos with Alexa also works with other Connected Home technology that is compatible with Alexa. The Sonos One will allow you to control your smart thermostat, such as Nest using a voice command. There are just so many cool things that the Sonos One can do, these are just a few of the most exciting examples.

Ultimate Conclusion

The Sonos with compatibility with Amazon Alexa and Google Home Assistant is one of the best speakers on the market today. With a price of $249.99, it is significantly cheaper than the Apple HomePod and Google Home Max.  It has the day-to-day usability that the standard Bluetooth speaker doesn’t have. The sound quality vastly outperforms almost any other sub $400 speaker on the market. One of Sonos’ biggest advantages is that it takes an existing speaker system and an existing home assistant, and brings those together. Overall, the Sonos One would be an ideal gift or just something to get for yourself to jam while at home.
